BATCH BREWING CO WEST COAST IPA

Batch Brewing West Coast IPA. I have to say I was pretty stoked when I received this as a Christmas gift from my brother (cheers Jon!).

I headed to Batch Brewing on the Australia day 2014 public holiday after they announce an impromptu opening. I knew they had recently brewed their West Coast IPA and I was keen to check it out. However, when I arrived I was told the tap had just run out. Like some kind of strange beer karma, the beer eventually found its way to me.

I couldn’t find much info on this beer other than it’s 6.4% ABV. I think they may tweak the recipe each time they brew it.

Golden yellow colour with a fine creamy white head with small hop oil bubbles. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Caramel malt and citrus hop aroma. Strong but smooth citrus, pine and grapefruit flavour. Soft and resinous mouthfeel. Lip smacking bitterness with the hop flavours and bitterness lingering. It has a dry finish that is very moreish.

Batch Brewing is sure raising the bar for Aussie craft beer.

 

9/10
