BrewCult Outta Sight White IPA

Total Score: 7.7/10

What is this new White IPA craze that is popping up around the craft scene in Australia? My craft beer aficionado boss even asked me to describe what a White IPA is… I honestly told him: “An IPA that is lighter than other IPAs”… not convinced by my own answer I looked it up and it is actually an IPA/Weizen/Wit hybrid beer designed for an ale-drinker during long summers, sounds like an ideal beer for Australia – we have loads of summer here. 248 more words

Kaiju! Beer Metamorphosis IPA

Total Score: 7.3/10

So maybe I spend a bit more time hanging around the Kaiju! booth than any other booths at the Sip & Savour beer show, I blame brewer Callum and his laidback approachable attitude, are you happy now Callum? 353 more words

Kaiju! Beer Cthulhu On The Moon Black IPA

Total Score: 8.25/10

Well now I’ve met Callum from Kaiju! Beer as well (he was manning the booth at the Sydney Sip & Savour event). We had a brief chat about their brews and he was very friendly and approachable (also passionate about beer), but as I’ve often said “All’s fair in beer reviews, and war… two totally unrelated things.” Next up from Kaiju! 270 more words
