Clare Valley Brewing Co. CVBC NEIPA

The newest cab off the ranks at Clare Valley Brewing Co comes the brewery’s tribute to an ever-growing craft beer style making waves here in Australia - the New England IPA.

Like the style recommends, this IPA is nice and unfiltered giving it a juice like appearance thats on the pale side compared to other NEIPAs we’ve chugged.

More Tasting Notes

You’ll get a fruity whack of El Dorado, Equinot, Mosaic & Galaxy hops for a breakfast juice like citrus aroma with hints of mango, passionfruit, papaya and pineapple finished with a very light but intriguing spice on the back end.

Below is a great review from Real Ale Craft Beer on Youtube after old mate Mick sends him a can to enjoy!

Clare Valley Brewing Co CVBC RED IPA

Now here’s a quality amber IPA from Clare Valley Brewing Co. The gang have made an alchemical concoction of prized malts including Golden Promise, Munich and Caramalt (just to name a few) to manifest a complex malty flavour and red hue so great, the brewery knew they were onto something special.

Simcoe, Amarillo, Centennial and Chinook hops were then added to the magical wort adding an earthy spice to the aroma.

More Tasting Notes

The Red IPA weighs in at 6.9% and is a lovely deep orange colour. You’ll get melon and other tropical aromas from those American hops supported by a rich decadent caramel, toffee and biscuit flavour from those malts.

Without question, the CVBC brewers have achieved perfection in the melding together of this beer’s ingredients, and that finishes with a gentle bitterness and a sticky sweetness.

Clare Valley Brewing Co. CVBC Brut IPA

Here’s a rather ‘bubbly new Brut brew’ (say that 5 times) from the gang at CVBC thats also just arrived in store here at Liquor Barons Carlisle.

The Brut IPA pours a lovely clear, bright yellow with pearly bubbles and a cloudy, fizzing white head. This is a great entry level craft beer style that often appeals to white wine and sparkling drinkers.

More Tasting Notes

Sav blanc aromas come from the Hallertau Blanc and Nelson Sauvin hops, while a dose of lychee comes forward with a splash of orange on the palate.

There’s a polite hint of citrus fruits coming from the help of Vic Secret hops which play nicely with those white wine and lychee notes at a weighty 7.5 percent. Nice and dry like a good Brut should be.
