COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Windjammer has a deep golden hue and is boldly bittered via early and late kettle hop injections backed up by adding even more hops during fermentation. This dry hopped ale is a standout in both itís up front bitterness, its spicy citrus aroma and its long finish on the palette. A powerful beer originally brewed to survive the long trip from the UK to India, it is best paired with subtle foods because it will always take centre stage. A Hop driven delight that will take your breath away!

From the brewery bar on 7/6/13. Cloudy appearance, citrus aroma, helluva hop bite. Long spicy finish with a pronounced peppery note ("it actually stings, said my companion). Only (?) 5.5% abv but the heavy hop character made it taste stronger than that. Summary: very lovely indeed.

Solid effort, just missing excellent status. Moderate to high bitterness, well weighted body, just missing a bit of oomph and panache. Still as local beer goes, this is excellent and I am sure it will only improve with tweaking.

Growler from Zesty Edibles in Gympie. Very good Aussie IPA, right up there with the best. Very impressed with the aroma and tastes of citrus and fruits. Nice taste on the palate also. Question is, why hadnít I tried this beer before!? Very good.

Great looking beer and fresh on tap. Chomping at the bit to try this beer and pleased to say iím not disappointed ..at all!....quite the opposite in fact. Beautiful malt and hop aromas brings an instant smile, hoppy heaven! Easily the best IPA on tap in Brisbane by a long shot.
