Across the land, brewers have been slaving away creating their entry for the Great Australian Beer SpecTAPular. Among them is Paul Morrison, co-owner and head brewer of Launceston's Morrison Brewery. But not only has he been creating a new beer for this year's event, he's also brewed a fresh batch of last year's entry. His 2013 GABS beer was an English IPA, in keeping with his love of additional British and Irish ales. The new version features a different yeast and Paul tells us we should be looking out for: "Heaps of layered malt, earthy, floral hops, orange marmalade and fresh cut tobacco." It is a keg only release and, at 6.8 percent ABV, is not one for the fainthearted.
