This addition to Cheeky Monkey's rapid-fire Surf Break Series of hazy IPAs is one of their biggest: an 8.1 percent ABV East Coast Double IPA named after Rabbit Hill in Yallingup, famously a favourite wave of local pro surfer, Taj Burrows.
The beer pours a pale, hazy orange with a lasting and lacy head. Passionfruit and citrus aromas are front and centre thanks to a generous dry-hopping with Nelson Sauvin, as well as a touch of Citra and Simcoe Cryo hops. There are some gentle tropical esters that are lowkey but present, while the noteworthy alcohol content is barely distinguishable. It all means the series delivers yet again, with the brewers offering another unique take on the hazy East Coast IPA style while remaining characteristically Cheeky.
