Hop Hog IPA – Feral Brewing Company (AUS)

Before I start on today’s beer I must applaud the restorative powers of O’Brien’s gluten-free pale ale, for I am almost completely cured of the plague that so debilitated me yesterday. Tonight, another beer from the Pete Rawson cellar and this one’s a real winner. There’s nothing feral about this India Pale Ale. The Swan Valley based, Feral Brewing Company have come up with an IPA of real character and substance.

Weighing in at a hefty 5.8%, Hop Hog is golden brown in colour with candy floss on the nose. It’s not overly hopped but is instead is nicely balanced, I taste honeydew melon, with hints of cinnamon and black pepper and a lip-smacking bitter finish. This is seriously good IPA, worth raiding your piggy-bank for.

  1. Whittards luxury white hot chocolate is my pretend beer for tonight. sprinkled with ordinary hot chocolate its the Anti-Guinness and the perfect antidote to antipathy towards (insert your own ant/anti based word here) Don’t bother with Jake Bugg – he’s on the bus with Passenger (never a more apt name for a band)
