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.

Scopey (7376) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2014
Bottle from Beer Gonzo,Coventry. It pours muddy amber-brown with a small white head. The nose is wood, earth, guava, watermelon and love hearts (the sweets). The taste is bitter, woody, earth, spice, floral and citrus rind with a bitter, earthy finish. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. A bit odd....lacks some body and sure as hell ain’t a looker. Perhaps a bit old?? OK.

DruncanVeasey (7315) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2014
From Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Soupy bronze with a low white head and moderate condition. Aroma a fruit salad of melon, red apple and papaya sprinkled with petals. Nutty and soapy with lavender, soft tropical fruit and generous bitterness. Impressive and complex nutty malt lurking with smoke beneath the hop brouhaha. Good.
