Thunder Road Brewing Shake It Up India Pale Ale. “Thunder Rd is an independent brewery operating in the Melbourne inner suburb of Brunswick, Australia. Since opening its doors for business in 2011, the brewery’s beers have been distributed for sale in Melbourne and distribution is now expanding throughout Australia.” First time I’ve seen or tried a Thunder Rd beer, the can graphics are pretty cool 🙂
The beer, pours a solid gold orange with a decent white frothy head, strong lacing and a NEIPA like solidity. Strong nose of passionfruit, mango and tropical fruits. Passionfruit, mango and fruits on the palate with a smooth velvet bitterness from the mosaic and galaxy hops. The addition of lactose gives it a full mouthfeel whilst not challenging the fruit at all. This is delicious, I’ll be keeping a look out @thunderroadbrewing . Tim
