COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American IPA. 48 IBU OG 1059 Our flagship IPA that had a primary fermentation in new French oak barriques before being returned to stainless steel for final processing and carbonation. Think all the great pine needle and grapefruit you associate with Hop Hog with an added vanilla aroma and softened mouthfeel.

Cask at The Local Taphouse, Melbourne. Hazy amber. Restrained grapefruit aroma. Mid sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Slight caramel and pine, mere hints of wood. Resiny bitter finish. Had to double check with the bartender he poured me the right beer.

Was completely blown away by the sweet vanilla notes that are obviously from the beer touching oak. Very interesting beer!

HopRedHead (322) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2013
Tap at Feral Brewery. Boasts the passionfruit and citrusy hop profile of the hophog, yet is rounded off by a nice oaky vanilla aroma. Flavour is a softer version of the hophog, a lot more balanced. Oak flavours compliment the light biscuity malt and make it really easy drinking, slightly sweeter. Cleverly brewed beer.

On tap at the Alehouse Project. Nice and hoppy. Aromas of grass, hay, and cereal. Taste is sweet and bitter, with long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Dark yellow, with a frothy head.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2013 Tap at Feral brewery. Pours a cloudy orange with a small disappearing white head. Nose is full of passionfruit, grapefruit, citrus and slight nectarine/apricot notes. Taste is amazing. Combining all the fruits above with vanilla and oak smoothing out the finish. Very well balanced and a lot smoother than normal hop hog. Palate is left quenching for more. Amazing beer

1L squealer and also on tap at the brewery. Pours the same as hop hog, a light golden colour with a small white head. That is where the similarity’s end.. A quick hint of the scent of this beer and i get a nice subdued hop aroma with a hint of vanilla essence. The amazing hop flavour in the regular hop hog mingles well with the whiskey/vanilla essence notes added by the barrels. Yes they are very similar like twins to the naked eye but when you look deeper you can see the difference the barrels make to this beer. Personally i prefer the fresh hop aroma and flavour of the original, alas this beer has demonstrated very well what different fermentation vessels can to the end product. Top marks from me.

On tap @ the Wheaty. Great hop aroma which blends in really well with the French oak. The oak is certainly well balanced and though noticeable does not dominate. Very good beer, one of the best IPAs I’ve had in a while.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2013 Tap at Mane Liquor for the Barrel Aged Beer Tasting Night. Nice clear orange pour with a small white head. Sticky head retention and lacing. Nice unique aroma. Citrus, grapefruit and dried apricot cut through with notes of vanilla. Lots of the dried fruits in the taste with the additions of oak and vanilla. Much softer and well balanced compared to regular hop hog. Really enjoyed this one and wasn’t expecting the subtlety. Unbelievable
