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.

Qvanth (9) - SWEDEN - JAN 10, 2014 does not count
En fantastisk doft av frukt och även Ferrari bilar( tro det eller ej). Men smaken levde inte alls upp till doften tyvärr. Beskan är bra, men smakar karamell och brödig, och den känns väldigt blaskig i munnen tyvärr, smaken försvinner mycket i de blaskiga.

Hej o hå vilken doft! Svartavinbärssaft med lite mint i doften. Tyvärr är inte smaken i samma klass. Besk o besk o lite pepprig.

Habanero (2708) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2014
Bottled. Pours hazy and deep golden with an avarage white, lacing head. Aroma of citrus, citrus peel, pineapple, piney notes and caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and pleasant bitter. Medium bodied, oily text. and soft carb. A very nice and fresh APA.

DanielBrown (3893) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2014
Keg at Cotteridge Wines, Brum. An IPA RAMMED FULL OF FLAVOUR. Tropical flavour at that. Super balanced, smooth etc. packed with taste to the root of the tongued. Significantly excellent.

JohnRMurdoch (3355) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 4, 2014
330ml bottle from Valhalla’s Goat. Medium muddy brown, not much head. Strong citrus pine hop aroma. Flowery hoppy pine flavour. A bit flat. Like a Kernel IPA but no fizz, more intense but less well balanced.

jackl (4797) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Cask @ CPK. Deep slightly hazy gold with a creamy white head. Definitely an attractive pour. Big, ballsy nose. Aggressive tropical undergrowth. Dank biomass. Citrusy hoppiness. Similar flavors. Big skunky hoppiness. Mild white bread. Some spruce. Dirty bitter finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Overall, great.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2014 Re-rate Keg at The Bat 20/01/14. Still murky, but better aroma and cleaner finish. 330ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours murky brown with a thin white head - quite unappealing. Decent enough hop aromas though, tropical fruit, orange. Taste has a good bitterness, but could do with more malt backbone. Bitter finish. OK.

Tsekouratos (324) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - DEC 27, 2013
Guest tap at The Local Pub, Athens Greece. very hazy orange color with a nice, off-white head, about a finger tall. Aromas of lemon, citrus and tropical fruits, well blended but not too intense, kinda liked it. Lemons was dominating the flavor profile with pine and citrus backing up!!! Nice overall hoppiness. Light body with lowto mid carbonation. Nice!
