There's a new cheese shop (yes I'm aware of how wanky that is) in my neighbourhood, decided to pop in and some Guinness cheddar caught my eye. Grabbed a chunk and thought I better balance it out with some VPAs.

Disappointed that there's no updates of the intraclub in the preseason thread to top it off.

I’m cracking into some Balter Hazys while watching the tennis. See ya on the other side :drunk:
Dude it's a good beer!
I just grabbed a 4 pack of their new Cryo WCIPA off some recommendations here. Loving the West Coast at the moment. Found another Innate so that ended up in my bag of goodies too!

I like drinking beer but not a nerd like you guys. Is Mosaic what Pirate Life uses?
It's a hop used by almost all breweries who dabble in anything from a pale ale and beyond. Widely available and falsely marketed, in my opinion.

PL do a single hop beer which is their Mosaic IPA. People lost their jocks over it back when they were hyping anything PL. Not sure how many people genuinely enjoyed it, or would enjoy it upon revisiting.

I just searched Mosaic vs me in this thread - as I remembered it, was bog average from PL.


What makes their beers so bitter? Like their PA can be bitter than some IPA's I've drunk
It's just individual marketing from different breweries I think. I'm the same, had some PA that have been stupidly bitter vs some IPA's that have been quite mild.

Their PA is definitely harsh by today's standards. I also think the malt bill is well on the English pale ale side. I don't remember this always being a problem. Last few times I've had it on tap it's been quite puckering.

Anyone tried Kings Road IPA? Can't remember who was hyping it. I expected absolutely nothing, particularly after that God awful Shelter brewing XPA I recently had, but damn it ain't bad!

I've gotta get out there for a few beers. The set up looks pretty cool.

Honestly I don't like PL that much. I have their South Coast Ale cause they do cheap jugs at the fed and It's not terrible for those kinda beers

I had one of those a couple of months ago and thoguht it was a good drop, particularly for a local brewery I had never heard of. I may have mentioned it on here. I too would like to get out there!
