Pouring a hazy golden colour the first thing that hits you is the aroma of fresh hops pouring out of the glass. Light bodied with a lovely carbonation, this mid strength IPA certainly holds nothing back on flavour. Look for a citrus/piney hit of fresh hops on the palate with a light malt backing and slight bitterness.
Unfazed By The Haze
Style: IPA - New England
ABV: 6.2%
# Ratings: 3,266
Score: 3.73
No beer style has grown with the same momentum over the past two years as the New England IPA. Typically, the style is brewed with low bitterness, high haze and is packed full of fruit characters care of both yeast and hop selections. For our third birthday we have decided to brew a variation of the style. Using the same basic blueprint but removing the haze. The idea behind the concept was to experiment and find out if we could impart the same luxurious juicy characteristics that we love about the style but have it crystal clear, crisp and summery.

This brewers choice recipe combines the warming qualities of an Irish red ale with the acidic twang of Maraschino cherry and lemon zest. All the good things. A combination of crystal rye and roasted malts deliver a gorgeous, deep autumn hue while anchoring in those toasty and nutty notes. The addition of fruit and a nitro pour guides this brew from old endearing pub to cocktail bar in one fell swoop. New Zealand Wai-iti hops garner more citrus for the party, elaborating further on a rich yet slightly tart palate. The nose will conjure imagery of warm rye loaf with lemon butter and the taste- buds will concur. Malt: Maris Otter, Munich, Crystal Rye, Aromatic Malt, Carfa III, Chocolate Rye Hops: Perle, Fuggles, Wai-iti

A smooth 7.1% Stout brewed with Oats, Black and Chocolate malts, EKG and Columbus hops, Pirate Life Stout is perfect for the cooler months. The malts take centre stage with a cacophony of coffee, chocolate and sticky date pudding and a rich creamy mouthfeel thanks to the oats. Columbus smacks the palate with a healthy dose of bitterness and also works with EKG lending a gentle, earthy spiciness to the beer. The result is a stout that we here at Pirate Life are excited to share with you all.
Hopco NZ Pale Ale
Style: Pale Ale - New Zealand
ABV: 4.8%
IBUs: 30
# Ratings: 3,585
Score: 3.75
The beer is an American style pale ale brewed with Pale and Munich malts to provide a smooth malty backbone to balance out the ample hops we threw at it. Hopco wanted to give some lesser known hop varieties some exposure so the following blend of hops were chosen: NZ Cascade, Motueka and Pacifica which together combine to give the beer a rich key lime pie / lemon curd cheesecake aroma and a light resinous character on the palate all backed up by a satisfying whack of bitterness. We'd like to think the NZ hop growers would get around a few pints of this one during their upcoming harvest.
Transpacific Pale Ale

The Pirate Life x Ballast Point Trans Pacific Partnership. A 6.0% American Strong Pale Ale liberally hopped with US, NZ and Australian hops and finished with Finger Limes and Coriander in the Whirlpool. To ensure that the tap decal stood out among our range we enlisted the help of our mate Steen Jones who came through with the goods: An epic scene of a tall ship sailing across the Pacific. We believe the beer, the artwork and the story behind it all reflect the unique style of Pirate Life and Ballast Point while celebrating the collaborative nature that helped the craft beer industry grow to become what it is today...

Alfonse Ale
Style: Pale Ale - Australian
ABV: 5.7%
# Ratings: 584
Score: 3.70
Brewed with the Mosaic malt bill and the Pirate Life Pale Ale hop combo the Alfonse Ale is a 5.7% pale ale with a surprisingly unique flavour and aroma considering it is a hybrid of two existing brews. Lighter and easier on the liver than the Mosaic and more delicate in its malt character than the Pale Ale the Alfonse Ale lets the hops do most of the talking. This beer is dripping with Cascades intense grapefruit and pine characters which perfectly complement the fresh tangerine and papaya tones of the Mosaic. The Alfonse Ale will only be be available in South Australia and will be pouring in bars around Adelaide all fringe season.

Dank, big citrus and tropical fruit notes dominate this beer. A simple, light malt bill gets out of the way and lets Strata shine brightly. Drinking this beer is like having a dance troupe rocking the stanky leg through your olfactory system. Dank and dirty in the best way possible Strata is also packed with pineapple, dragonfruit, blood orange and grapefruit.
Young Blood Saison

Score: 3.57
Brewed for our 2nd anniversary party and the second Tomfoolery x Pirate Life collaboration we created a Saison aged in Grenache barrels. Once again the combination of beer and wine is unlike any we have ever made or tasted before. More wine than beer, it hits the palate with a bone dry almost Riesling like character which after a few moments of confusion gives way to a typical Saison finish thanks to the French Ale yeast with which it was fermented. It’s a beer which will have you second guessing all the way and one which we have enjoyed brewing with our mates up at Tomfoolery.
