COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The perfect accompaniment to any summer day! Road Trip is an American IPA brewed with three varieties of hops from the Pacific Northwest of the US. This beer was inspired by a recent trip made by the Holgate family to the states of Washington and Oregon, which enjoy a thriving craft brewing industry.

VinegarStroke (267) - Napa, California, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle: Clear, copper, light head and good lace. Caramel, dry fruit and hops. Smokey. Fruit. Dry, not sour and very bitter. Somewhere between an English IPA and a East Coast IPA. Crystal malt shows strongly. Good intensity and length. Probably a little coarse and bitterness just dominates flavor. Solid beer but not great.

Very enjoyable IPA. Had it on tap at the Rainbow Hotel in Fitzroy. Good head and great tasting beer. Nice hops and malt. A bit grassy, which I like.

marom92 (47) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 20, 2014
330ml Bottle. Copper coloured with a fluffy white head. Strong pine, toffee and grapefriut aromas, with hints of spice and orange. Malty flavour, with notes of herb and an earthy character. Bitterness with grapefruit and resin notes in the finish. Relatively long finish and a light to medium body, decent beer.

Muggus69 (1147) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2014
Draught. Mid-gold body, small white head & lace, good clarity. Good aroma, typically American hop affair; grapefruit, pine, dried grassy herbs, a helping of biscuity malt underneath. Full bodied, quite resiny & slick, moderate carbonation. Delivers woody hops, bitter citrus, as expected. Decent amount of toasted malt. Firm bitterness with moderately long finish. Pretty standard AIPA, can’t fault it.

motelpogo (6309) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 24, 2014
on tap at the union in newtown - too bad it didn’t have such a selection of aussie beers on tap when i used to live around the corner. anyways, better late than never. rich golden, clear with a minimal head; juicy aroma of pine and mango; some mango weis bar flavour, strange but pleasant hints of vanilla and chocolate ice cream, heaps of bitterness. probably the best local beer i found in a few summer weeks back in oz
