Tropical Oat Loaded IPA
We have been working away on our latest Villains release, consuming every version of hazy and oat cream ale we can get our hands on. Now it is time to release!
This creamy IPA is chock full of oats, with a little lactose for body and sweetness. Heavily dry hopped with our own tropical blend to give you everything that is trending right now. The use of Sabro in this blend is a test for future flavour enhancements of B.O.T.N.A - our Tropical Pale Ale.
Now that I have the attention... What do I do with it?
The latest Villain ATTENTION SEEKER artwork and title pays homage to my favourite 80's grindcore band, Septic Death and the album to the left.
In all the chaos and noise in this album, each instrument has its moment while working in (dis)harmony to deliver a belting assault on your senses.
We're not looking to assault your senses, but we did want to present a beer that is smooth, complex and showcases the beauty of El Dorado and Sabro hops.
When I had Paul Dempsey's attention...
I was very excited as we stood close to stage and Paul interacted with audience members answering questions about the next album, touring and a bit of banter.
I called out to him. He looked and pointed at me. I didn't expect him to notice me so was not prepared. I called out, "Play Harpoon!" like an ignorant dickhead (in my defence, great song).
He looked at me (I think). Replied with, "Yep." And then played something like Situation Room instead.
Oh the shame! The embarrassment! I had the attention of one of Australia's greatest talents and asked him to play a cover!
So the next time you plan to get someone's attention, make sure you have something worth saying.
Please let us know what you think of this release by leaving a comment below. We love the engagement and your interest!
...But we don't do covers.
