#135 To Øl Sur Cedar – Sour Mashed IPA with citra hops and matured with cedar chips

Review #135 – To Øl Sur Cedar 85/100 For those of you who are unfamiliar with this brewery, To Øl are a Danish based brewing company who don’t actually own their own brewery except for the one at their brewpub which produces beer almost exclusively for the pub alone; all of their beer for the… Continue reading #135 To Øl Sur Cedar – Sour Mashed IPA with citra hops and matured with cedar chips

#132 Sierra Nevada Tropical Torpedo

Review #132 – Sierra Nevada Tropical Torpedo 80/100 The Torpedo from Sierra Nevada has always been a favourite of mine, it was one of my go-to double IPAs back in the UK, it was readily available from supermarkets and bottle shops, and at the time one of the best American IPAs I could get my… Continue reading #132 Sierra Nevada Tropical Torpedo

#130 8-Wired Palate Trip Sour IPA – A perfect pour for a quiet Sunday in the local

Review #130 – 8 Wired Palate Trip Sour IPA 85/100 I am going through a phase where sour IPAs are my first choice when they’re available in the local pub or bottle shop, maybe it’s the weather, maybe it’s because it’s a fairly new style that hasn’t been overproduced, but most likely it’s because when… Continue reading #130 8-Wired Palate Trip Sour IPA – A perfect pour for a quiet Sunday in the local

#128 Feral Brewing Co. War Hog American IPA – Powerful hop bitterness but lacking in complexity

Review #128 – Feral Brewing Co. War Hog American IPA 78/100 For the past year and a half I have been living in Australia and if there is one thing they like to do over here it’s purchasing things that are made in Australia.  The vast majority of beer that I’ve been consuming has been… Continue reading #128 Feral Brewing Co.

#126 Evil Twin Brewing Nasty Trunks – Doesn’t do what it says on the tin…but a good beer nonetheless

Review #126 – Evil Twin Brewing Nasty Trunks Dry Hopped Sour IPA 80/100 Okay, so I seemed to like this a bit more than a lot of people out there, however I do think that the summary on the can leaves a lot to be desired such as describing this beer as having “more bitterness”… Continue reading #126 Evil Twin Brewing Nasty Trunks – Doesn’t do what it says on the tin…but a good beer nonetheless

#116 Ballast Point Sculpin – The IPA with a sting!

Review #116 – Ballast Point Sculpin 84/100 The Sculpin is a pretty well balanced IPA from the California based Ballast Point brewery.  The beer takes its name from a fish called the sculpin, a pretty ugly species with sharp spines on its back that are able to deliver a painful and dangerous sting. This beer… Continue reading #116 Ballast Point Sculpin – The IPA with a sting!
