A collaboration between Hargreaves Hill in the Yarra Valley, and Bodebrown from Curitiba in Brazil. This was a bock that was then "hop-filtered" through Galaxy and Summer hops. Tried on-tap at the Royal Albert Hotel in Surry Hills.
Pours a solid, reddish amber hue, with a slight hazing, but not a lot. Body is decently weighted. Head is a frothy yellowish off-white and it forms a big crest that leaves sheeting lacing. Looks pretty good.
Nose doesn't have much going for it, despite the Lupolado of its name. There's a bit of chunky caramel and just a suggestion of rustic, earthy hops that give a slightly metallic twang. But there's not much else, and it's not particularly potent.
Taste is a bit better. More of that solid malty caramel character coming through with an organic uptilt like banana leaf. Full malt through the centre of the palate and more of that earthy, slightly herbal hop tone. Finishes with a touch of burnt caramel that lingers as a savoury sweetness.
Feel is pleasantly full and rounded.
Overall, it feels robust, but without a huge amount of flavour to it. It's decent enough, but it didn't really excite me either.
Serving type: on-tap
