Two Birds Brewing by Jalepeno Taco Beer

Simon B. is drinking a Jalepeno Taco Beer by Two Birds Brewing at Royal Albert Hotel

Strong jalapeno in aroma nd taste. No heat though. Beer dominated by the jalapeno and misses out on the subtlties of the original Taco beer.

Moon Dog by My Blue Heaven

Simon B. is drinking a My Blue Heaven by Moon Dog at Royal Albert Hotel

Definite raspberry and vanilla on the nose but not backed up in the flavour. I think the high ABV might explain that. Thin mouthfeel.

 Australian Brewery by Revenge of the Pith

Simon B. is drinking a Revenge of the Pith by Australian Brewery at Royal Albert Hotel

Well this is a citrus driven old school IIPA. All kinds of citrus used and it shines through complemented by those hops. Well balanced. Nice

Mornington Peninsula Brewery by Squid Rising

Simon B. is drinking a Squid Rising by Mornington Peninsula Brewery

Absolutely nailed the style. A bigger Jiffy Squid and it shows. Great beer, hops for days and bitterness an absolute minimum. Hazy as.

May have been past it's best as it has a BB Of November 2018. Not picking up the pine and resin noted by others. Has lost hops but drinkable

Batch Brewing Company by Pash The Magic Dragon

Simon B. is drinking a Pash The Magic Dragon by Batch Brewing Company

Really nice kettle sour. Not sure of what Dragon fruit is but this has a berry like flavour that then fair whacks you with tartness.

Modus Operandi Brewing Co. by Dream Weaver

Simon B. is drinking a Dream Weaver by Modus Operandi Brewing Co. at Royal Albert Hotel

Not sure these guys know how to brew a bad beer? Quality NEIPA once again. If I'm being picky maybe a tad bitter. Awesome beer.

Blackman's Brewery by Angry Reg

Simon B. is drinking an Angry Reg by Blackman's Brewery

In the current climate of NEIPAs it's good to have a classic, big flavoured, boozy, citrus, pine and malt powered IIPA. A great beer.

Not picking up the fruit and tropical notes of others. Very little nose and malt dominated taste. Not up to scratch, will reserve a score.

Stone Brewing by Stone Loral & Dr. Rudi's Inevitable Adventure

Simon B. is drinking a Stone Loral & Dr. Rudi's Inevitable Adventure by Stone Brewing at Beer DeLuxe - Federation Square

Cricket! That Stone Brewing taste of tropical fruit shines through together with a massive boozy hit. This is not a delicate beer.

Little Creatures Brewing by IPA (India Pale Ale)

Simon B. is drinking an IPA (India Pale Ale) by Little Creatures Brewing at The Greengate Hotel

Not a bad drop. More of a malt dominated IPA with the hops flavours running a distant second although they do provide some bitterness.

Brouwerij Rodenbach by Rodenbach Caractère Rouge

Simon B. is drinking a Rodenbach Caractère Rouge by Brouwerij Rodenbach at Flat Rock Brew Cafe

Goodness this is a wonderful sour. Sour fruits on the nose and a sharp cherry tartness that suck your cheeks in.

CoConspirators Brewing Company by The Matriarch

Simon B. is drinking The Matriarch by CoConspirators Brewing Company

Nice floral notes on the nose and follows with a citrus flavour. Maybe a little to much bitterness for an NEIPA but a great drinker anyway.

Hargreaves Hill Brewing Company Pty. Ltd. by Apricot Sour (Belgian Tripel Fruit Sour)

Simon B. is drinking an Apricot Sour (Belgian Tripel Fruit Sour) by Hargreaves Hill Brewing Company Pty. Ltd. at Royal Albert Hotel

Mildly tart, mildly apricot. I'm not sure of the triple style other than being a strong and at 7.2% it ticks that box.

HiteJinro by Hite

Simon B. is drinking a Hite by HiteJinro at Stra BBQ

On the plus side this is actually good with Korean BBQ. However as a beer standing on its own it is bland with little to no hop.
