Ocean Reach Brewing released plenty of cracking IPAs in 2022 and it looks like they plan to keep those hops flying in 2023. Their first release for the year is Little Wing; a session IPA that might still be a full-strength at 5.6 percent but isn’t as big (in terms of either booze or can size) as many of the Phillip Island brewery's recent releases.
Little Wing takes its name from the Jimi Hendrix song and like the tune, it’s a melodic and easy-going ode. Here, those lyrics are replaced by the rhythm of pine, grapefruit and a soft mix of tropical fruits, while a bitter kick and slight chewiness provide a balanced landing.
