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.

gunnar (7880) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2014
Bottle from Beermerchants. Pours very hazy golden with a big creamy off-white head. Aroma is strong hoppy, fruity and minty. Taste is light sweet malt initially, overpowered by strong bittering and tasty hops, tropical fruits and herbal minty stuff playing around. Dry nice finish.

brnandersen (3272) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2014
33 cl. bottle poured in to a tulip. Hazy, bordering muddy amber colour with a small, white head. Aroma with citrus hops, grapefruits, peaches and sweet exotic fruits. Taste is bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and an average carbonation. Finishes dry and bitter with fruits. Nice one, besides the appearance.

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 (4027) - 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 (4381) - 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 (4366) - 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 (7063) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, 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.
