The name of this beer came about as our Head Brewer having a bit of a stab at the market. It seemed that everybody was making or asking for an American IPA, so we will be the Copy Cats. The first batch ever brewed was sent straight to the Australian & International Beer Awards (AIBA) and picked up Champion Australian Beer and Champion IPA in 2014. Yeah that’s how awesome our Brewer is at recipe writing – first attempt and we win the country’s highest possible award. Since then Copy Cat has medalled at every competition it’s been entered in and would be one of Australia’s most awarded and best beers. Tasting notes:
- Copy Cat
- 70 IBUs
A big West Coast IPA, bulging at the seams with tropical, piney, resinous hop bitterness and aroma. Malt is just here to hold it all together and stop the bitterness spilling out into the streets. It tips the scales at 6.8% and 70 IBUs. Copy Cat? There are not many “IPAs” like this one!!
