Track have once again pulled out some big beers at the start of the year . Three hop focussed brews from down under with designs & names inspired by the beautiful under water world of the Great Barrier Reef .
ELYSIA - DDH IPA w/ @futurebrewingsyd
Enticing aromas of ripe Gooseberry, dry White Grape and delicate Honeydew Melon intermingle and compliment one another thanks to a very generous sprinkling of brewery favourite, Nelson Sauvin (T90 and Hop Kief!)
ACROPORA - DIPA w/ @mountainculturebeerco
A triple threat of Citra - using Citra, Citra Incognito and Citra Cryo, creates an immense wave of tantalising Lemon and Orange on the nose. This transcends into a crescendo of massive flavours of overripe Mango, White Grape, and dank Pineapple with a Piney, herbal finish.
OSCILLATE - TIPA w/ @rangebrewing
It's rare you'll see a TIPA this year, but they had to go all out for this one with @rangebrewing. Utilising @yakimachiefeu Citra YCH 702 alongside a cacophony of New World Hops. Galaxy, Rakau Sub Zero Hop Kief, Riwaka & Nelson meld together to create a tropical fruit punch that drinks as easy as straight IPA rather than a 10% TIPA.

CLOUDWATER X RANGE BREWING DIPA v16
In their latest DIPA v series collaboration they are grateful to have worked hand-in-hand with Range Brewing in Brisbane Australia, who have worked in bold and adventurous ways to elevate the Australian brewing scene.
In this DIPA they've boldly pushed the boundaries of contemporary liquid hop offerings. While liquid hops have traditionally played a supporting role in their most innovative beers, evolving their impact as technology and real-world feedback shape their usage, this time they wanted them to take centre stage in the brewing process.
The aim was to maximise the potential of these full-flavour liquid hop extracts, producing an abundance of aroma and a profound hop resin character. The hop line-up starts with Citra Incognito from Barth Haas, followed by Nelson and Motueka SubZero HopKief from Freestyle for biotransformation. It then progresses to Galaxy and Citra Spectrum before finishing off with Nelson and Motueka Amplifire green hops oil from Clayton Hops, resulting in a layered complexity that rivals the finest dry-hop offerings available.
The outcome is a huge New Zealand-led bouquet of grape, lime, and gooseberry, complemented by lingering citrus and peach flavours on a dense resinous body that will have you savouring the intense, all-encompassing hop experience.
In can plus lots of other fresh Cloudwater.

A beer to celebrate our love of Terry, without whom we still wouldn't be in business today. Terry loves big beers, particularly imperial stouts (which apparently we don't brew often enough). Terry also enjoys orange and chocolate flavours in his stout, so this seemed the obvious choice.
