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.

Vaiz (4052) - 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 (3926) - 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.

abemorsten (3378) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2014
Shared bottle at Cardinal. Muddy golden body with a white film. Salty, polleny plums on the nose. Flat hop juice that’s smooth to drink. Medium bodied and a resiny bitterness that lasts. Pleasant beer.
