Australian Oatback – Double IPA w / OatsAlex2017-11-28T21:14:06+00:00
The Australian outback is many things – big, vast, dynamic and beautiful. We like to think of this beer as a perfect homage to our long-distance neighbors down under. This beer is made with an Australian – derived yeast blend and is exclusively hopped with Australian and New Zealand hops Rakau, Moteuka and Southern Cross. We loved the nose on the first dry hop that we went ahead and dry hopped it again! It’s a juicy, dry hop bomb that is sure to please. At 8.6%, it punches well above its weight as well, with a light, warming finish that balances the hop flavor nicely. Melon and passionfruit aromas dominate this beer. Very healthy doses of oats (of many kinds) soften the mouthfeel of this beer and provide body without being sweet or malty.
