Noisy Minor ANZUS IPA (2023)

Style
IPA
ABV
6.5%

The year is 2014. Noisy Minor ANZUS IPA catches your attention as it’s just placed in the top ten of the GABS Hottest 100. It’s not that easy to get hold of (unless you head up Tamborine Mountain), but it’s worth keeping an eye out for. It’s a bangin’ IPA.

The year is 2023. Noisy Minor ANZUS IPA catches your attention as it’s clear and piney and bitter amid a sea of soft hazy IPAs. It’s fairly easy to access for non-Tamborinians now that it’s also available through Catchment in West End. It’s still a bangin’ IPA.

ANZUS has evolved a bit since its inception. Where once it had just Galaxy, Nelson Sauvin and Simcoe representing Australia, New Zealand and the United States respectively, now it also contains Eclipse (from Australia) and Citra and Azacca (from the US), and has been bumped from 6 percent to 6.5 percent ABV.

The beloved pine needle character holds its ground among a smattering of mandarin segments, with a just noticeable malt sweetness carrying them and lifting a little sweet dankness as well. As you sip and swallow, the citrus broadens out and dries right up, and a slight grain character joins the bitterness. If you don’t manage to knock back a pint of this beer before it warms up at all (good luck with that), you’ll find the flavour profile opens up to reveal more fruit – a lovely surprise.
