Brew Boys is a small brewery located on Regency Road, Croydon, and the brewer Simon is not afraid to be adventurous, and Hoppapotamus is certainly one adventurous IPA. This IPA is packed full of hops and from the first taste it will smack you in the mouth. As Brewboys description of the beer states 'With enough hops to choke a large African animal'

Hoppapotamus is the highest rating South Aussie beer on Untapped and the fifth highest IPA in Australia, and one taste will certainly explain why.
