PORT ROAD PILSNER
Pilsner is famously Czech in origin, but here we’ve gone for a South Pacific hop profile in keeping with the people who brew it and drink it. Passionfruit, grapefruit and sauvignon blanc characters abound, stacked up on a robust malt base that’s partly German, partly Kiwi.
QUICKCHANGE XTRA PALE ALE
XPA means Extra Pale, a product of Quickchange’s lighter malt base. That delicate colour though is undercut by a glorious hit of alpha oils from Mosaic, Galaxy and Citra hops. Sometimes you don’t want your mouth flayed raw and your liver worked to a standstill. Sometimes a few luscious notes of mango, guava, lychee and pineapple can be just the thing.
Hops are where it starts for the born-again craft head and Supercharger APA is where Panhead delivers. This is an all-American show with Centennial, Citra and Simcoe overwhelming your nose, kicking you in the taste buds and departing with more bitterness than a Palm Springs divorce. It’s a seriously addictive combination.
BLACKTOP OAT STOUT
As self-confessed bogans we have a natural attraction to black, preferably matte, so Blacktop Oatmeal is close to our hearts. The key to creating a silky death metal monster like this is the caramelised Golden Naked Oats we’ve built it around. Sophisticates will detect the chocolate and coffee notes of creamy tiramisu. The rest of us will note that it matches our jeans.
Much as we enjoy a high horsepower hop-rod it’s nice to kick back and cruise on occasion. Whitewall pulls a very diplomatic 4.3% with a clean, crisp mouthfeel imparted by a touch of wheat in the malt. The hopping, bolder than you might imagine, showcases the new Aussie star, Galaxy. Best enjoyed on the back porch late afternoon after a bit of self-congratulatory physical exertion.
