Range Brewing never shy away from experimenting with their recipes and these four releases from the brewery are a particularly nice snapshot of what takes their fancy at the moment. OK so Trust The Process is less of an experiment and more a commitment to tradition, with the Czech pilsner spending 45 days lagering away in the cold. That time in tank has certainly done wonders too, with the shining and golden beer providing soft bready notes, an upfront bitterness, a herbal touch and a brilliantly crisp finish.
Wild Side meanwhile, is the kind of beer you’re less likely to find in Prague, with the DDH Oat Cream IPA featuring Sabro LUPOMAX, Citra, Mosaic Cryo, and Cashmere hops. There’s an underlying sweetness and creaminess that pairs effortlessly with the IPA’s silky body while that hop combination brings coconut, with candied pineapple and orange soon appearing too. If that’s not quite enough hops, Part Time Party Planner is a triple dry-hopped IPA loaded with Citra LUPOMAX, Centennial and Mosaic in both pellet and Cryo form. Here you'll find more pineapple, guava and melon with those tropical flavours joined by citrus and a piney finish.
Finally, in a first for Range, the brewery released a non-alcoholic beer in Low Key. We haven’t tried it since it wasn’t quite released in Melbourne when we called in (but it will be there from July 6 in Abbotsford and is already available in Brisbane and online) but with Citra hops and a touch of pineapple and mango added, the brewery says the pale ale is packed with pineapple daiquiri, candied mango, fleshy orange and lime flavours and aromas.
