As new head brewer Jackson Purser finds his feet at Bright Tank following his move south from Indian Ocean, the brewery’s toys have started to come into play. The reverse osmosis unit has quickly become a favourite for dialling in exact water profiles to best express each style. And in the case of Dank Tank, part of its dry appeal can be attributed to water chemistry, which may not be super interesting for most drinkers but is when it comes to delivering the beer's very tight outcome, something that bodes very well for future releases.

Jackson describes the beer as a "dank but delicate platform" upon which the hop combo of Simcoe, Citra, Columbus and Denali delivers juicy guava and pineapple. These line up with a persistent, needle-y bitterness that lasts through the IPA's clean, crisp length.
