BEER HAIKU #95 Young Henry’s Hop Ale IPA

The Great Australian Beer Marooning of 2014 may have adversely impacted on this year’s Beervana but that apparent debacle (the Marooning; not Beervana) has had some positive consequence. After last week’s Western Australian Imperial Brown Ale, Hashigo Zake Cult Beer Bar has now brought us an English-style IPA from the suburbs of Sydney. Good effort, Rabbitohs!

Young Henry’s Hop Ale IPA (6.0% ABV)

Musty share-house* brew

Spring has sprung in 2042

Grassy, burnt sugar

Food match: Pie floater (a culinarily dubious Australian pastry), Morton Bay Bugs with moray sauce

It’s the kind of beer you drink when: Drinking with men of reason

* Australian for the kind of domicile we normally call a flat
