Hemingway's Brewery Doug's Courage XPA

Hemingway's Brewery Port Douglas

Doug’s Courage IPA celebrates the spirited nature and fortitude of the Port Douglas pioneers. Tagged as an XPA, it sits apart from most of its peers on the market these days; while many brewers have decided XPAs should be in Balter's image – very pale, hop forward, and somewhere around 4.5 percent ABV), Hemingway's have gone bigger (a legacy, perhaps, of its original categorisation as an American IPA).

For one, it pours a dark copper colour, which translates to a light caramel sweetness on the palate. The brewers have held little back when it comes to the hopping, with Columbus, Citra and Cascade added in liberal fashion, contributing a lively bitterness plus aromas and flavours that flit from sharp citrus to diesel, nettles and onion.
