@philterbrewing - IPA 🍻 Pretty much as expected. Nothing amazing, but drinkable. Tropical dominant, passionfruit and green tropical fruits. Nice grapefruit aroma, but unfortunately doesn’t translate as well onto the palate. Malt is very light. Not that balanced. But refreshing all the same 😬 Hops: Simcoe, Kohatu, Motueka, Mosaic, Galaxy. ABV 5.8% IBU 55 👍🍺😊 #hops#hophead#craftbeer#thecraftdispensary#philterbrewing#philteripa
LMAO. Branding is sick. And totes nailed that old school vibe we all love. I feel like it belongs on a Daytona 500 bonnet. And that's a compliment. Got from @actofwine so knew it would be worth a shot. Sorry hadn't heard of @philterbrewing. From Sydney. Tasty lager too. I've just ridden 45 mins worth. So she's a bit shaken up. Is it normally a little carbonated? Its crisp and refreshing nonetheless. Was told the XPA is killer too.
Philter Brewing IPA 5.8% 🇦🇺; пиво от новой Сиднейской пиварни, если не ошибаюсь они начали в 2017-м с двух пив, сейчас у них в линейке 4 сорта. Изначально, меня сильно отталкивал брендинг банок, дизайн ассоциировался с сигаретами лаки страйк, а само название сразу напоминало бычок, да и все сорта кроме недавно появившегося IPA были слабоалкогольными. Сегодня решился купить на пробу. Конечно, по сравнению с предыдущим пивом эта ай-пи-эй курит в сторонке, но в целом вполне ОК, да и по цене оно в 2.5 раза дешевле. В общем, нормальная ай-пи-эй начального уровня для неискушенных всякими гаражами, поло омни, догами и димоленами.
Day 254: I think the magic of each Philter release is how they have managed to take established styles and place an emphasis on making them quaffable and sessionable, while at the same time not making the beer feel watered down in any way or compromising on flavour. They manage to walk the line between accessibility and complexity. It is beer for the masses while also appealing to seasoned craft beer drinkers. Even the can art work looks like it is there to please both retro loving design nerds and also give old mate some nostalgia about a pack of durries he used to buy. Their IPA has gone with green and gold, colours worn by many Australian sporting hero and I can imagine drinking a few of these in a pub watching a match. It's an easy drinking IPA from the get go. Initially it reminded me of a souped-up version of their XPA, the grainy cereal malts are punctuated by tropical flavours and some mild pine with a moderately bitter finish. But if you don't get through the glass too fast (admittedly tough), as the beer warms up a bit it also opens up too. There is a bit more complexity and in addition to more accentuated tropical fruits, I got some grapefruit citrus, melon flavours and a little peach. I also noticed the bitterness in the finish lingered for much longer than I expected. It all integrates well into a tasty drop that invites you to drink some more.
This was $6.50 from Bucket Boys. Is it good? Yes. Arbitrary Score: 4 out of 5. #beer#craftbeer#australianbeer#australiancraftbeer#ausbeer#philter#philterbrewing#ipa#indiapaleale#seductivelybeer#bucketboys#sessionbeers#greenandgold#365daysofbeer#beersofinstagram#instabeer#beerstagram#beerlover
I have to admit to being a bit of a @philterbrewing fanboy (phanboy?), their core beers are solid, sessionable, and tasty. And, after having a good old chinwag with them at GABS, I discovered that not only do they make good beer, they're a good bunch of peeps too. Which brings me to their Caribbean Stout. Admittedly I did sample this beer at @gabsfestival but given how many beers I already had under the belt I probably wasn't appreciating it as much as I should have. Now, with a clear palate (and mind), I can happily say this is an amazing little (is 7% ABV little?) stout. The usual suspects of coffee and chocolate are in attendance (but it doesn't lean too far either way, balance is the name of the game here), there's some cool dried fruit stuff going on, and the finish is nice and dry to balance out the fruit sweetness. If you find some still floating around in bottleshops, grab it and get it into your face hole, you won't regret it.
Caribbean Stout / Philter "Jamaica Stout?" Nice one @philterbrewing 😂 This was legit on tap so grabbed a sample can for home as well. Pours with minimal foamy head, a dark chocolatey hue. Not overly carbonated either. First aromas that hit me are tropicals and hops, backed up by a booze and dried fruits. A respectable 7% ABV. Milk chocolate, roasted coffee beans, vanilla extract, sultana, cola, red apple, spiced rum, burnt toast, more dried fruits. A little thin on the mouthfeel but otherwise a nice, easy Stout.
