Day 226: It's been a big day of drinking around Melbourne, from the rooftops of Naked for Satan to the impressive interiors of Forester's. But I finally got to Beermash to see their hand painted beer logo tiles in the flesh. I couldn't go past Boatrocker's Alpha Queen IIPA for a drink. I cracked open a couple of Ramjet 2018 with friends this week and like last year's release it was worth the entry fee. Alpha Queen is another tasty entry by this brewery, it has the fingerprint of a tasty West Coast style IPA. Lots of tropical fruits with a short hit of sweetness, some booziness and some restrained pine and bitterness. It is incredibly smooth and drinkable without feeling insubstantial. It is also quite full bodied and creamy, making a really enjoyable Imperial IPA. Shame I won't be around to hit up the brewery but this was a nice consolation.
This was $15 for whatever size is a large at Beermash. Is it good? Yes. Arbitrary Score: 3 and a lot out of 5. #beer #craftbeer #australianbeer #australiancraftbeer #ausbeer #nakedforsatan #foresters #beermash #boatrocker #boatrockerbrewery #boatrockerbrewingco #alphaqueen #imperialipa #iipa #dipa #ipa #indiapaleale #365daysofbeer #beersofinstagram #beerstagram #beerlover
