How come I couldn’t find this when I was in Perth? Perhaps the Sleeping Giant was sleeping.
This beer is a a bit of well kept secret, like it’s sister Gage Roads beer, ‘Atomic Pale Ale’, I rate it very highly. I bought this as my weekend 6-pack (yes, some days I have more than one beer), and this 6-pack packs a punch.
When you wake the giant, you find a crisp dark amber ale full of zing and bite. Grapefruit and Saville Orange rind undertones provide a lip-smacking finish to a full-bodied IPA. An ideal Friday night beer (once you’ve opened a 6-pack, you have to drink the lot, otherwise it goes flat). Weighing in at a hefty 5.4%, this IPA is not for alcopops fans or non Yorkie eaters. I like it a lot.
