Dervock (673) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - JUL 2, 2015
Bottle - pours amber with a white head. Aroma is caramel, honey, nutty and a bit marmaladeish. Taste is honey and sweet malt up front then a transition to a dry lingering finish. Creamy palate. Nice drop came as a bit of a surprise.

Tap at The Monk - intensely grassy nose - well balanced IPA - I could stand a lot more hops - pleasant enough for one.

Apparently these guys are pretty consistent with their brewing. If this is a true statement then I shall probably try and drink their whole catalogue. This is their double hop IPA and in true form it packs a bit of a punch. It has a lovely amber colour in the glass with a delicious, fluffy head. On the nose you get caramel and honey with some spice. It almost smells like mead. Up front it is all hops and nutty malts with a lingering, bitter finish. Iím finding it a little sweet actually and the more it warms up the sweeter it gets. I wish I had left it in the fridge a bit longer to really get cold. It isnít disappointing and is probably the best Aussie IPA Iíve had so far.

Pours amber with a ridiculous head. Impossible to pour. Expect to wait a good 5-10 minutes before being able to pour the whole bottle. Nose shows apricots, orange blossom, peach and resinous hops with sweet nutty and caramel malt underneath. Very nice! Similar malt profile in the way of flavours, loads of nutty malt. Fruity hops also transfer through. Finishes with a bold, sharp clean bitterness. Carbonation is way too high!!!! Really stupidly high. If this wasnít so massively over-carbed itíd be a bloody impressive beer.

On tap at the Wheaty-Adelaide. Iíve said it before but I think Lobethal are the most consistent brewers in the South Australian micro scene. Every beer Iíve had from them is well brewed and very drinkable. I really liked the double hop IPA, very well done. Lots of big hop aroma and flavour, one of the better Aussie IPAs.

Bottle. Dark amber with a large light beige head. Aroma of earth, citrus and pine, apricots, oranges, caramel. A little soap. Taste is honeyed and fruity with orange and apricot, lingering but not huge bitterness. Nice fresh hop aroma but like their normal IPA just a bit sweet for me. Pretty good.

Bottle 330ml. Great beer. Aromas of caramel, pine, and apricot. Taste starts sweet, with bitterness taking over for a long finish. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.
