HAWTHORN BREWING CO AUSTRALIAN IPA

Hawthorn Brewing Co Australian IPA. On the strength of a recommendation by fellow Beerio Martin Beves, I grabbed a four pack. This is the last bottle of that pack.

My initial reaction was of good summer fruit aroma and spicy hops taste. Imagine my displeasure when a slightly foul odour crept in.

The taste was still good, but it is hard to escape any smell when using the “Olfactory Canon”.

The second bottle was not much better. A couple of days ago a late night impaired judgement had me try another with very good results. Was it good or was it damaged palate? Tonight I had the last with a clearer head and my initial impression held to the end. Good hoppy bitter taste overlayed by the fruity aroma.

My score is based on the last bottle and comes with a warning about consistency from this brewer.

 

7/10
