The Australian Brewery has released an AA Session IPA. The mix of American hops gives this brew a traditional American IPA resinous, ‘piney’ flavour combining big citrus and fruit characters typical of the style.
Named after its all American hop bill and medium ABV (4.3%) this beer combines a rounded mid- high bitterness (45IBU) with a complex hop character. Along with the hops in the brew two late dry hop additions ensure an intricate and full mouth feel.
This is a very limited seasonal release available only in draught at all the usual craft beer suspects in Sydney. These include the Dove & Olive and the KB Hotel in Surry Hills and the Union Hotel in Newtown. It will also be on tap at the Australian Brewery.
“The beer was brewed in conjunction with some of our favourite Sydney bartenders who wanted an IPA without the high ABV for after work,” said brewer Dan Shaw. “This also means we can fit one more in after we finish brewing for the day.”
