Wanted to include the collaboration partners Nogne O and Moylans, but the database doesn't seem to cater for it.

On tap at Jack Greene Hobart. Reveiwed from basic notes.

Dark chocolate capped by a sturdy cappucino head. Abates slowly, leaving a sticky raised curtain.

Lots of 'green' hops amidst a pungent collision of roast, savoury and dry toffee malts. Interesting hop aromas of jelly snakes, spearmint and marijuana. Pretty big nose.

More vegetal green hops. Marijuana, choc-orange, clean pine and an increasingly bracing tea-like bitterness.

Medium, slightly chewy body with moderate carbonation leading into a dry but ultimately satisfying bitterness.

Worthy collaboration. Plenty big and clearly hopped to the gills, but also plenty drinkable, making it very easy to return for another.
