Kickin' It Old School - West Coast IPA 7.6% ABV @mountainculturebeerco x @hopheadsau Collab Beer! Your typical translucent amber West Coast.. light and well carbonated. Dank, piney and resinous. Backed up and balanced with citrus fruit and a considerate bitter bite. Extremely delicious!

Paint By Numbers - Double NEIPA 7.5% ABV @mountainculturebeerco Well, what can I say? Another juicy, tropical banger of a NEIPA from DJ and the crew up at MC. Its gotten to the point when you just have to buy each release from these guys, as you know it's going to be up there with the best. Looks like a glass of juice, with a long lasting head. Heavily hopped with BRU-1 and Idaho7. Notes of subtle peach, a little grapefruit perhaps and a lot of pineapple. Extremely smashable for a 7.5% beer! Get on it!

Mocha Reserve Bourbon Barrel Aged Pastry Stout - 13.2% @bacchus_brewing Obviously a hell of a lot of coffee here on both the nose and the palate. Pretty boozy, with the bourbon barrel aging being very noticeable. The coffee balances well with the chocolate for a real Mocha treat!

Galaxy Valley - Hazy Double IPA 8% ABV @garageproject x @trilliumbrewing The 3rd version in the "Valley" collab series between New Zealands best, and one of the best brewing out of the U.S. Looks juicy as, and deliciously inviting! With a bucket load of dry hopped Galaxy and Vic Secret hops, expect a huge dose of passionfruit, peach and pineapple, with some earthy, piney characteristics mixed in for good measure. Well rounded, full- flavoured, and juicy.

Num Num Juice - Double NEIPA 7.8% ABV @mountainculturebeerco This has to be one of the best NEIPA's that has been produced by MC, and possibly in Australia. It really is THAT good. It pours a bright orange with really strong head retention. Using Citra & Amarillo hops, the incredibly juicy tropical aromas are bursting from the glass in this one! Thanks to the generous addition of oats, this is thick, yet incredibly smooth. Intense flavours of passionfruit, with a citrus kick of orange and grapefruit. A real, killer combo!

Toasted Marshmallow & Salted Caramel Pecan Mudcake Nitro Imperial Pastry Stout 10% ABV @onedropbrewingco Pours as dark as the night, devoid of all light like a black hole. The beautifully sweet aromas this gives off are incredibly indulgent and extremely inviting! The initial taste you get on the tongue is chocolate and Salted Caramel, quickly backed up by a creamy pecan nuttiness. The marshmallow is noticeable too for sure. I'm not a massive fan of Salted Caramel but this pastry stout has balanced it incredibly well so that it compliments the overall experience and complexity without providing too much sweetness that it becomes dominant. This wasn't the best example of a nitro from One Drop, but it still added another layer to the creaminess. Overall very tasty, incredibly luxurious, and the 10% ABV is hidden very well. A great dessert beer.

I've been in Deep Cover myself lately, and a little quiet on here with a few things going on, but here's a quick review of a couple of recent releases from @mountainculturebeerco 'VHS & Chill' Retro IPA 6.9% ABV 'Deep Cover' NEIPA 6.2% ABV The NEIPA was everything you'd expect from MC with plenty of flavour and a thick mouthfeel. Now, the VHS & Chill really stood out, and was my pick of the two. A real old style, No-Fuss, Resinous, Oily IPA. Delicious when paired with a homemade burger and sweet potato fries! BEEROMETER: (Slight change of scoring going forward... now scoring in increments of 0.25) NEIPA 7.5/10 IPA 8.75/10 #instabeer #craftbeer #craftbeerlover #beergeek #beernerd #beertopia #beerlife #ilovebeer #beerporn #beerstagram #beersofinstagram #beerislife #craftbeercommunity #craftbeerculture #beeroftheday #beertasting #beerfun #beerphotography #shakesbeers_brewtopia #beertasting #beerfriends #drinkcraftnotcrap #supportinglocal #mountainculturebeer #code #secret #NEIPA

Caribbean Nights - Tropical Stout. 8.2% ABV @rosscraftbeer @bacchus_brewing Now this Stout is right up my alley. Not so big on the ABV that it'll said you on a one way ticket to the land of nod, or Muntsville, but extremely huge on flavour. "A tropical Stout infused with a touch of spiced rum. Subtle flavours of caramelised pineapple, and a touch of ginger. Dark and exotic" (Quote from Bacchus) For me, it's hugely rich and moreish. Can definitely pick out the tropical flavours and the hint of rum. I was unsure as to whether this could/would work, but I found myself more and more lost for words with each sip I savoured. This is a beer that I would be happy to revisit for sure. BEEROMETER: Has to be another 9/10 🤷‍♂️ Superb. #instabeer #craftbeer #craftbeerlover #beergeek #beernerd #beertopia #beerlife #ilovebeer #beerporn #beerstagram #beersofinstagram #beerislife #craftbeercommunity #craftbeerculture #beeroftheday #beertasting #beerfun #beerphotography #shakesbeers_brewtopia #beertasting #beerfriends #drinkcraftnotcrap #supportinglocal #bacchusbrewing #tropicalstout #stout #caribbean #rum #superb

Bo Jingles X The Final Chapter. Choc/Cherry Pastry Stout. 13.4% ABV @rosscraftbeer @bacchus_brewing Oh my lord.. I was extremely sensible last night whilst on the @the.virtualpub and had only 4 beers, finishing on this monster pastry stout whilst watching Tsitsipas struggle against Medvedev in the Aus Open Semi Final. He put up a good fight towards the end, but just like me, couldn't quite finish it. Huge notes of cherry pie with an underlying dark chocolate base. Extremely well balanced on the palate, with optimal amounts of choc and cherry, all up in your face, delivered on a thick, creamy, velvety mouthfeel. An utterly delicious dessert beer, but perhaps I'd have preferred to have shared this with a mate, not just because it's share worthy, but because I'm not a huge drinker of big stouts.

Wildcard - Double NEIPA - 8% ABV @mountainculturebeerco First things first, this looks stunning! Brewed using hops entirely sourced from three freestyle farms in New Zealands Upper Moutere and Tapawera regions.. They say to expect 'pink grapefruit, juicy passionfruit and a hint of lime'. It's extremely bright, colourful and vibrant in both aromas and flavour. Thick and creamy, extremely juicy with no bitterness in sight. Bucket loads of passionfruit for sure, with a well balanced addition of grapefruit. I couldn't really detect the lime but it didn't affect my decision. Thoroughly enjoyable and bloody tasty. Up there with the best from @mountainculturebeerco BEEROMETER: 9.5/10 #instabeer #craftbeer #craftbeerlover #beergeek #beernerd #beertopia #beerlife #ilovebeer #beerporn #beerstagram #beersofinstagram #beerislife #craftbeercommunity #craftbeerculture #beeroftheday #beertasting #beerfun #beerphotography #shakesbeers_brewtopia #beertasting #beerfriends #drinkcraftnotcrap #supportinglocal #mountainculturebeer #wildcard #doubleneipa #NEIPA #NZBEER

Imperial Rocky Road Stout - 9% ABV @ekimbrewingco Mmmm Rocky Road! If you have tried the Rocky Road Porter that Ekim have brewed a few batches of, then you'll love this. It pours a thick, jet black, with a strong durable tan head. Strong milk chocolate and Sweet cherry on the nose. The chocolate, marshmallow, cherry and nuts are all present in absolute bucket loads, delivered on a creamy, and decadently thick mouthfeel. Devilishly delicious.

THE HOLY GRAIN - Honey Toasted Hazy IPA 6.2% ABV. Counter Culture #10 from @stoneandwood @counterculturebeer Pours a crisp golden amber in the glass with noticeable notes of honey on the nose. The honey, vanilla and granola-like oat flavours are subtle, but definitely welcomed, and add to the coconut of the Sabro to add a new layer of complexity to the haze base of the beer provided from the addition of Galaxy, Citra and HBC472 Hops (on top of the Sabro) BEEROMETER: 8.5/10 #instabeer #craftbeer #craftbeerlover #beergeek #beernerd #beertopia #beerlife #ilovebeer #beerporn #beerstagram #beersofinstagram #beerislife #craftbeercommunity #craftbeerculture #beeroftheday #beertasting #beerfun #beerphotography #shakesbeers_brewtopia #stoneandwood #stoneandwoodbrewery #counterculture #hazyipa
