Bonehead Brewing Regeneration & Faded Memories

English IPA
5.3% & 7.5%

IPA isn’t a style that stands still for very long with new hops, hop products and a million and one different prefixes (we might be exaggerating here) ensuring they’re always in a state of flux. You could say that, like The Doctor† in Dr Who, they’re constantly regenerating into a new look, with a new personality while still retaining who they are at heart, or hearts rather. Bonehead Brewing’s Regeneration is an English IPA that joins their Smells Like Pop Culture series, with the beer’s artwork featuring each incarnation of The Doctor and celebrating change by looking to the classics. As a result, it's a far chewier and more malt-led IPA than most modern releases, with that sweetness joining traditional English hops flavours of marmalade, orange zest and a floral finish that joins the beer's substantial bitterness.

Faded Memories meanwhile is a bit of a throwback IPA too, although the double Red IPA doesn’t take its inspiration from the UK. Instead, the chewy and rich affair uses Galaxy, Amarillo and Mosaic to pack in so much pine, resin and candied orange that it’ll have you dreaming of America at the start of this century.

Will Ziebell

A constant personal annoyance is how often quiz questions ask questions like “What is the name of the Time Lord in the long-running British TV show” and give the answer as “Dr Who” even though true fans know they are always called The Doctor. I have written into The Age several times. I am not a crank but also, England isn’t a country - the UK is.
