So then, what to expect from the Parramatta brewery's first attempt at branching out? Will it be big and hoppy like some of their most beloved beers? Damn right! This has a substantial malt backbone balanced with a massive amount of hops (fans of the 44 Amber Ale and 77 IPA take note). There are two fundamental differences though; the first is that it's got a healthy addition of the new hop variety to come out of the USA: Mosaic.
