The Rocks Brewing Company IPA Returns

August 6, 2012 – 12:13 pm

The Sydney based Rocks Brewing Company has announced the long return of its award winning India Pale Ale (IPA) to Harts Pub on Gloucester St in The Rocks.

At 7% Alcohol, the beer is big and has its front foot forward at 70 Bitterness Units with a load of dry hops thrown in at the end. The Rocks Brewing Company IPA was recently awarded a Silver Medal at the 2012 Australian International Beer Awards.

The limited edition IPA was first launched in 2011 after General Manager Mark Fethers returned from San Diego, the home of many craft beers, all ‘green and hoppy eyed’. “My withdrawal from hops was painful and normal beer didn’t have any flavour anymore”, he said. “Getting off the plane I called Rocks Brewing Head Brewer Scotty Morgan and announced the IPA was to be our next specialty brew.”. Once brewed the first batch of The Rocks IPA turned out to be extremely popular and sold out in less than three weeks.

Fethers and Morgan attended the Craft Brewers Conference in San Diego this April and to the delight of Rocks Brewing punters, returned inspired for another round of Rocks Brewing IPA.
Out of the 52 local breweries on show, Morgan said the majority of the IPA’s were above 6% with huge hop assaults on the palate, most with remarkable balance. “The first time I tasted Green Flash West Coast IPA I was hooked and like Fethers last year, I was like a walking hop cone when we got back to Sydney after two weeks of IPA drinking,” he said. “We’re very excited about the return of IPA to Harts Pub.”
