COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled; Occasional.

Our flagship IPA brimming with Aussie hops.
We have taken the base of our regular IPA Sound wave, and carefully chosen an Australian hop to replace each US hop used. Ella, Summer, Galaxy & Vic Secret all sing to a different tune and the effect is stunning, producing a very different beer. Sound Wave Aussie is more citrus than tropical fruit and has a more pronounced resinous finish. a more bitter tribute to our friends down under and their sporting success in the UK this year.

yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle. A hazy, dark golden beer with a small, white head. Peaches, banana notes, lemon and pine cones in the aroma. A bit flat I think, semi-sweet and with a good bitterness. It’s rather fruity in the flavor, peaches and oranges, with some pine cones and a fruity sweetness. Lasting finish that is mostly on the fruity side. Pretty decent, but too sweet I think. 140608

a_cross (623) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2014
Muddy dark orange-brown; next to no head; aroma is a dense summer stew of ripe peach and red grapefruit - nice; taste is tropical fruit, mango, grapefruit; reminds me of a sherry-laced summer pudding; resinous hops; solid, sweet malty base too; big flavours but well balanced; really soft carbonation which suits it; so many of these heavily hopped modern IPAs smell wonderful but their overly aggressive bitterness drowns out any generous, subtle flavours; this, however, is how to do it.
