The Citra/galaxy dream team predictably deliver absolute flames but then there’s some funky must on the finish as the Riwaka comes through. Superb balance between the familiar and the unexpected. There are elite breweries and then there is Monkish. Kings.Earned the Cheers to Independent U.S. Craft Breweries (Level 48) badge!
Strata adds humid, grassy reinforcements to help Citra’s tropics beat the galaxy into noble submission. This is so drinkable but still packs that green galaxy finish I just love. Daryl B. gets US beer so fresh it still has hopburn. Levels.Earned the New Brew Thursday (Level 22) badge! Earned the Land of the Free (Level 64) badge!
PI know how DIPAs should look and feel but don’t always nail how they should taste. However, this time they do. Tootally delicious chalky, piney and citric delight. It’s massive, blunt force trauma flavours - a galactic beer but without the galaxy.Earned the Haze for Days (Level 91) badge!
Aaand finally Polly’s have their dipa and what a dipa it is. Filthy hop swamp full of Simcoe and mosaic’s agricultural, earthy goodness. No wheat in sight - this is unfiltered hop glory. If you can find this, get this. Now.
Brewing in its most pure, honest and beautiful form. The hops are put on a pedestal and citralaxy absolutely sing together here. The weight and depth are otherworldly and every sip is better than the last. An all time beer. God bless James B.Earned the Photogenic Brew (Level 99) badge!
