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.

30/IV/14 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: 30/IV/14 talk about drinking just in time (2014-450)

Pretty cloudy dark amber beer, huge creamy dense irregular yellowish head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: very fruity, lots of peaches, some mango, bit of exotic fruits, bit of citrus, honey. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: fruity start, grapefruit, citrus, honey, some alcohol, pretty bitter and hoppy, piny touch, some pineapple. Aftertaste: bitter, lots of grapefruit, exotic fruits, very bitter, hoppy. Probably even better when fresh(er), although they only put on 3 or 4 months after bottling.

Swaroga (1428) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 2, 2014
Butelka 33cl. OCZY : piwo jest mętne o kolorze pomarańczowym. Piana jest obfita i wytrwała o kolorze kremowym. NOS : zapach jest naprawdę przyjemny jak cukierek czy guma do żucia. Tarta, cytrusy, ananas, mango, marakuja. Powiedziałbym, że zapach jest ciepły i świeży zarazem. USTA : piwo jest średnio gazowane o kremowej konsystencji. Smak piwa potwierdza jego aromatyczność : słodka tarta naładowana mnóstwem egzotycznych owoców. Gorzkość jest bardzo cytrusowa podobna do skórki i pestek owoców. Piwo zaczyna się słodziutko ale kończy się naprawdę gorzko. Niezły kontrast. ODCZUCIA : bardzo dobra IPA. Jest tak gorzkie jak słodkie. Bardzo aromatyczne. Piecze w podniebienie jak świeży ananas. OCENA : smak : 8/10 pijalność : 8/10

33cl shared by Arve_Christian - thanks! Pours hazy golden with a white head. Hoppy and fruity aroma with notes of citrus. Fairly bitter, but well balanced. Refreshing and quite nice.

prawlie (1175) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2014
Bottle into a Gouden Carolus glass. Cloudy yellow-orange with almost no head. Pleasant citrus-grapefruit aroma. Smooth, bitter, with a dry finish. Perfectly drinkable. That said it lacks complexity so is a bit of an also ran.

Very, very bitter. Love it. Taste of nettles and dandelions overpowers the citrus from the hops. Quite malty too. Generally I’m a fan of citrus - grapefruit and orange - from the hops but this is a welcome change.

Vaiz (3530) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2014
Bottle at home. Cloudy orange pour, thin white head. Aroma of tangerine, orange, quite yeasty, citrus, dissolving vitamin C tablets, and grassy. Flavor is quite bitter, with loads of bittering hops, citrus, messy and very yeasty. Almost completely flat. Am I missing something here?

Holmen1 (2715) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2014
Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff mars-14: hva har de brukt for å lage denne intense plommearomaen som nå brer seg rundt bordet? Her har vi tydeligvis noe å glede oss til. Det lille skummet sår tvil, og det viser seg at smaken er flat og underkarbonert. Stor bitterhet, men litt ute av balanse. En stor skuffelse etter den flotte opptakten. Må prøves på nytt.
