Thus Let Us Drink Beer – Exit Brewing

 

The endless saga…just when I thought I had my favourite Australian IPA go-tos firmly established, a brewery pops up that disrupts it all:

Enter Exit Brewing, which shall be the focal point of this instalment, a brewery that begs the question of how I could have possibly composed together my beloved boilermakers without it.

Exit Brewing is one of those breweries that let their emissions speak for themselves instead of engaging in wild marketing manoeuvres.

Having originally started their operations out of where Kaiju! Brewery, they channel their alchemy under a telling moniker, i.e. “ex-IT” signifying the industry Exit Brewing’s founders emerged from, with the focus  firmly set on the production of premium craft brews.

If you have not noticed yet, claiming that your humble narrator harbours a weak spot for IPAs would be an understatement par excellence, however, they need to be well calibrated.

In essence, Exit Brewing’s IPA focusses on what makes an India Pale Ale great – fulminant grassy hop flavours that rest on a bed of resinous pine and caramel and are accentuated by refreshing citrussy highlights.

The exquisitely bold melange of sweet- and bitterness is smooth, never not in the tradition of more refined variants of classic West Coast IPAs and clocking in at 7% ABV dangerously more-ish, as the elongated finish lingers with an awesome mouthfeel.

Summa summarum – a grand, grand and bold IPA that entered my top five of Australian craft beers and makes me more than eager to get my hands on Exit Brewing’s IIPA, which apparently skims the cream of the best of what Chinook, Centennial, Sorachi Ace, Simcoe, Mosaic and Citra hops have to offer as well as their Hazy IPA, which apparently benefits from “biotransformation” due to adage of dry hops caught in actively fermenting stages.

To be continued...
