Me old mate spearhead pale ale. Sorry for the blurry pic of the bottle but it is probably not what you wanted to look at.

I think the first monsoon of the season has arrived. You're just jealous that boats don't park in your backyard. :)

This was great. A bit too dangerously easy to drink.

One Tsunami and I'll be beach front. How are you going to move them to Mackay?

I will half fill the boats with sea water and put the fish in to skipper the boats. Too easy.

Popped in to the Sip n Save Cellars at the Old Spot. Wow... I was super impressed with the range!

Here are a few

So these 11, plus a CPA roadie, cost $62 which I was pretty impressed with

So I find myself back in the USA - and that means fresh IPA’s.

First off the bat was a Sierra nervada hazy little thing. Tropical fruit aroma, not overly bitter. Poured clear and not hazy. Slightly sweet, citrus after flavours. Great beer.


Dog Fish head  60min ipa
Solid beer. Had it before and I’ll have it again. This bottle lacked some aroma.


Cigar city : Jai-Alai IPA


Lovely colour, tropical citrus aroma. Strong, Spicy grapefruit bitterness. Absolute cracker!

Bonus, I was able to replace my broken Sam Adams glass :)

I’ll keep an eye out

Just had the dog fish head 90min ipa


It’s ok, bit much residual sweetness for my liking. Sweet caramel flavours left in my mouth.  Sweet smelling aroma. More like a barley wine than ipa.

Just got snowed on as well which made me happy.

The 24 advent beers my wife got me came from the Old Spot. I was really impressed with the range. Good mix of Australian and imported beers with some harder to source styles like imperial stouts and sours.

Just have to keep an eye on the best before dates as unfortunately a few were over...

@hammer - have a good time in the US, keep the pics coming.

Osaka Blues ipa


Made with Aussie hops apparently.

Pine flavours and a dry finish, strong bitter after taste. Not much aroma, I’m guessing my one is not fresh enough. Good lacing on the glass as it goes down.

Keeping cool today

Time to grow a beard



Slight malty, yeasty aroma, light body and light carb. Big bitter dry after taste. Bit lacklustre and I wouldn’t buy again

Jade IPA


WOW! Tropical, hoppy goodness. Pacific jade hops with dry hopping from chinook and citra. Nice fruit finish, followed by bitterness that’s not overpowering. Great beer.
