When we started making beer in 2009, we kept a list of names that we found funny. Top among those names, Shaved Kangaroo, has not become a beer until now for two reasons: 1) we were too embarrassed that we found it funny; and 2) the scarcity of Pacific Hops from Australia and New Zealand: Galaxy and Nelson. We have come to terms with our limited sense of humor and our hop suppliers and are pleased to bring you Shaved Kangaroo – with tasting notes of “Smooth and Hoppy”.
During this beer’s life cycle from malted barley sugars, water, hops, and yeast to beer, 10’s of millions of acres have burned across Australia in the one of the country’s worst fire seasons on record. We will use this release to call attention to these unfortunate events happening there in an effort to help raise money for relief efforts.
Shaved Kangaroo starts off with a 2-row, oat malt, flaked oat, and torrefied wheat base and a whirlpool of Strata and Citra. The dry hop is exclusively loaded with some of our favorite pacific hops: Nelson and Galaxy.
Shaved Kangaroo pours a vivid yellow orange with a crazy tropical dank aroma. It’s a super “smooth and hoppy” flavor explosion of tropical citrus, pineapple, clementine, gummy fruit snack candy, and red starburst. This beer is sweet and tropical with notes of white grape on the end with a big down under #EQjuice fini Show Less
