Fox Hat Red Pelt and Metric IPA Cartons (24pk) $80 Delivered @ Sippify

750
SHIPBEER

I was hoping someone else would post this up so I didn’t look like an alcoholic, but I guess 80% of my purchases in the last two months have been grog!!!
The red pelt and metric usually run at $110, so present decent value at this price delivered. Red pelt is one of my all time favourite beers. Logistics seem to be up to scratch too. I placed an order Thursday night and received an Auspost shipment notification Friday. Use code SHIPBEER

Metric here: https://sippify.com.au/fox-hat-metric-ipa-7-alc-.html?catego...

Also have the Vale tropic ale for $55 a carton. Good fridge filler: https://sippify.com.au/vale-tropic-ale-6x375ml-4-2-alc-.html...

    Ships from SA. Bought a carton last deal. Mine took over three weeks to arrive to Perth. Lots of delays with Australia Post.

      Yep. Mine took a month. Can’t be bothered with that again.

        Mine only arrived at the end of last week . I guess if you don't mind waiting a month . Not sure what happened in transit but all of mine are frothing up despite BB or Dec/2020 .

          Same with mine!

      The xpa deal was slow. I honestly think they got a lot more traffic than expected and couldn’t handle it. Seem to be fine since then. Especially with Auspost being even more useless than usual

      •  

        Pretty sure it's all Auspost. My last order I had two cases, sent to the post office day after ordering (check the tracking, should tell you when it's scanned in) and they arrived a week apart. Both scanned into Melbourne the same day too.

        Anyway, great deal, but the last thing I need right now is more beer. There's cases of it everywhere at home with all these deals going on. I fear for my liver.

        •  

          No. It's the merchant as well. They aren't very competent.

          With one of my orders they called me and said that there would be a delay in them processing my delivery as I provided an address that did not exist.

          Problem was the address was where I live and which has been used with 1000's of other orders over the last 3 decades with multiple different merchants. Sippify just wouldn't accept the address was real!

          I would say you'll get your beer. But it wont come quickly.

          •  

            @DrRalph: I already have it, it was the last XPA deal. As I said, it was scanned by Auspost as processed in a facility in Adelaide the day after Sippify sent me a notice it was being sent, then processed in Melbourne, then one box arrived at my house a few days later after that. The other box was processed in Melbourne the same day and took a week and a half to arrive.

            My experience was it worked perfectly, except for Auspost losing it in Melbourne. Sounds like you had a one off issue but at least they called you and sorted it out.

            As per a whole lot of posters here, if they're in SA they got it quick smart.

            •  

              @freefall101: Not one off, no. Have had problems several times with Sippify. And they didn't call to sort it out. They called to tell me my address was wrong! The merchant does have significant problems. Multiple reports about this on craft beer Facebook sites (eg https://www.facebook.com/groups/welovecraftbeer/).

              This hasn't stopped me from ordering from them. I have received my purchase each time, but people need to be aware that it will likely take several weeks before they receive their orders.

        I got mine within a week but I am in adelaide.

      I ordered the XPA last deal and it arrived 3 days later.

      I had a carton of beers sitting at the same depot at Sydney for 2 weeks at Australia Post last week.

    Bought a carton of Vale two weeks ago.
    April 2021 expiry delivered to Brisbane in a week.
    Happy with that.

      Yeah I’ve found they are super fresh beers, definitely not trying to dump close to date stuff out on special. Quite a nice surprise

  •  

    I haven't used any of these online booze places for beer - it it typically older stock that they are trying to move that goes on special?

    • +2 votes

      No not usually, most are in either a booze to your door style of service or craft beer niche of the market… Bought from a few different ones including sippify and had no issues with end dates or deliveries… They usually indicate if it's a best before clearance type in the posts.

      • +1 vote

        Scud70. Mostly true. Unfortunately not always the case with boozebud. They can be crappy with dates, and don’t disclose it in any way.
        Sippify and direct from brewery have been awesome for me

        •  

          Boozebud pale ales/IPA/IIPA/XPA are all old and oxidised (disgusting) unless they're in the New Arrivals section

        •  

          Bummer… I got some craft from boozbud n were ok date wise but haven't bought much since then… Good to know though thanks for the heads up

          •  

            @scud70: I found they were ok a lot of the time, just lacked transparency on close dates too often. Combined with their new freight rates for rural deliveries, they are now dead to me!!!

        • +1 vote

          Agreed. Last case I got from Boozebud was only four weeks away from expiry and tasted lifeless and insipid. I complained and they refunded me and let me keep the beers. They tasted much better after that.

    •  

      Not typical. But can occur. Good merchants provide the best before dates int he advertisement.

    Does it taste better than other pale ale?

    Full Mongrel on again for $110 for 24 cans. This is the discounted price I got it for in March. Outstanding beer. Great value.

      $140 for me, how do you get it for $110?

          Amazing. Bought both. $190 woohoo!

            @footyboy: Awesome. Got some heavy hitters coming your way!!

  •  

    Be careful these creep up on you if you have a few haha. Nice drop though I put it the freezer for 5-10 minutes then pour it in a chilled glass.

    I can't seem to find what hops they use in the metric IPA?

    Also, anyone able to "compare" the flavour of the Red Pelt to anything more "common"? I got burned by purchasing a few cartons without tasting beforehand…

    • +2 votes

      Red Pelt has a harsher finish than the other Reds of a similar vein

      Its fairly close to the Prancing Pony India Red Ale (7.9%) https://www.danmurphys.com.au/product/DM_ER_2000003068_IRACA....

      Personally I prefer Six Strings Dark Red IPA (6.0%) https://sixstringbrewing.com.au/collections/beers as it has a softer finish but still that good whack of Red Ale feel in the middle, and at 6% is enough to get you on your way without putting you on the floor like the former two.

      For a zero bitter finish try the Morrison Brewery Irish Red Ale - at a lower alcohol too 5.2%,

      The Stone and Wood Jasper Red Ale 5.4% is also on the softer edge side for a more "sessiony" red ale with a lighter flavour for a red.

      I'd also rate the Red Pelt above the 3 Ravens Pacific Red Ale 5.8% - not great enough for the asking price.

        Khepri. The six strings double is my favourite red, and probably in my top three beers full stop

    • +2 votes

      If id have to guess says pine and citrus hops so would be something like citra, centennial or warrior.

      The red pelt is one of my favourite amber ipa, very malty and hoppy and does a good job of balancing out that ridiculous 7.8% AVB. I personally would go it over the metric but that's just my opinon.

      Also agree its very similar to PP red ale

  • +3 votes

    Vale ipa is still $55
    That’s good drinking for the price

    • +2 votes

      Agree, I find myself turning to this in the fridge more regularly when you can get it for $55. It's nothing to write home about but at $20 per case cheaper than most of the stuff in its class its a budget friendly craft to have on hand.

  • +1 vote

    Bargain! One of my favorite Red IPAs. Usually paid $20 for a 4-pack at my local.

  • -2 votes

    I can't believe how expensive this stuff is. Even at $80 for 24 cans it must be the world's bests beer. Perhaps it's me, I just couldn't justify spending that much for 24 cans.

    • +1 vote

      It is 7.8% though starting to get close to twice a normal beer haha!

    • +1 vote

      This is considered cheap for a craft beer.

      Some people pay more than $100 for some rarer cans in Australia. Eg:https://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/46317/16814/ which is consistently ranked one of the top IPA's in the world.

      •  

        Sounds interesting. Where do you get this in AU without remortgaging your home?

    • -1 vote

      Beer is the new wine, (profanity) trying to claim they can taste X and y when they all taste the same.

    •  

      Unfortunately, that's how it is these days.Sometimes, I pay $30-40 per bottle of beer, if it's something of interest to me. $80 is considered cheap for a case of decent fridge filler.

  • -2 votes

    Why is this 80 dollars lol.

    • +2 votes

      Because that's what it costs.

    • +2 votes

      Because it’s not mass produced swill like vb

    • +2 votes

      Because, if I've calculated correctly, the tax (excise) on just the alcohol for a carton of this beer would be $36.
      On top of quality ingredients, labour, a canning line, transport, etc… Not a great deal left for profit there.

      24x375ml = 9L
      9Lx7.8% = 702mL of alcohol
      .702x51.31 = $36.02

      ($51.31 is the excise per litre of alcohol)

    Hoping this red ipa is just as tasty as the xpa which was very nice.

      This Red IPA is way better than any other XPA by default.

    Already dispatched.
    They are now ozbargain surge ready😁

    If they have another deal on the XPA I'm in!

    •  

      Yeah I should’ve bought a few extra cartons to stick in the back room when they had that first special. Great beer for that price
