As the Earth turns, so too does the cosmic wheel, and once again the stars align to see mighty Korben return to our realm in all its might and majesty.

A veritable powerhouse of Simcoe, Centennial and Mosaic hops, Korben’s huge flavour profile, exquisite balance and superbly bitter finish has seen it become one of the top-rated Independent Double IPAs in Australia.

This time around, the hops are tasty and satisfying as ever. There’s simply no better beer for kicking the winter cold to the kerb – the ideal drop for kicking back around the fire pit with as a fat slab of ribs cooks away in the smoker.

As one of the Crafty Pint lads once said, this big, hoppy monarch of a beer has been brought together with such finesse that it’s “lean, clean and drinks like a dream”. Get in quick with your tributes, before it disappears once more into the crystal palaces from whence it came.
