Muggus69 (2134) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 4, 2015
330mL bottle Bottled 12/3/14 Cloudy straw coloured beer. Holds a dense head of good size. Aroma is quite different; phenolic peppery, clovey spice, freshly cut grass, sour dough starter, grapefruit, lemongrass, lemon myrtle(?), floral herbal hop notes, pilsner malts. Full kind of chewy body seemingly conducive of a cloudy yeasty sort of beer, high carbonation, bit of acidic bite to it. Rather spicy/peppery on the body, touch of dough, pale cereal maltiness, plenty of grass, herbal hops, with a touch of tropical fruit & citrus. High bitterness, a touch sharp - might be a Galaxy thing? Interesting hybrid - always in two minds whether it works or not, tastes good but the balance is a touch off.

CacheManyHose (600) - HONG KONG - JAN 31, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2015 Very cloudy straw-beige with thick bubbly white head and huge stripey legs. Smells estery - banana, heavy yeast, pepper/clove. Fruit (peach, apricot), bit of soap. Tastes quite bitter, resin, yeast/wood, very sour finish. Body is tart, bit frothy, fine carbonation. Aroma is nice but more like a Saison than an IPA; taste is less interesting but still yeasty and a little sour. Had again at the TAP Nøgne O food pairing for Matt's birthday. Had with the jiu yim shrimp. Nøgne O brewer talked about using Australian rather than American hops (like mango-y Galaxy and Ella) to complement the Saison flavours, which makes sense. Very interesting and unusual combination - still more Saison than IPA to me but nice to have the refreshing tropical yeast paired with fruity hop.

Bottle. Pours a light golden colour with a little head that doesn't linger for long. A bit of sediment clouds things up a touch. First sniff gave me a herb-ish kind of hit...Very enjoyable flavours from the hops. Worth trying!
