Doctors Orders Brewing (NSW/Australia) – Plasma White IPA [7.5%]
‘Back for its fourth Winter and reconfirming that everything is better with more hops here comes Plasma (7.6%); the White IPA. White IPA’s are still an emerging trend that we’re pleased continue to embrace.
Judicious hop use dominates Plasma’s aroma, backed up with a balanced mouth-feel defying its alcoholic payload before delivering an extremely long lingering bitterness. A deceivingly addictive prescription.
The grist for Plasma is practically identical to our Zephyr (Double White Ale) which explains the appearance. However the lack of botanicals, a different yeast strain and excessive hop use deliver an ale that is Zephyr’s polar opposite.’

– Doctors Orders Brewing – Sydney, Australia –
Doctor’s Orders Brewing is all about special thought provoking and inspirational beers released seasonally, with availability across Australia currently on draft (including growler fills at specialty liquor stores) and 500mL bottles. The ethos is simple, produce beers that are intriguing based on emerging, historical and/or rare styles often with a twist but always with balance that enables you to have more than one.
Our mid seasonal beers are smaller draft only releases designed to be much bolder in flavour and style. They are only available at our regular craftier venues and when the keg(s) empty it’s gone.
Doctor’s Orders is affectionately referred to as a cuckoo brewer. The analogy with a cuckoo is that we don’t have our own brewery (cuckoos take over other birds nests to lay their eggs). We take over our mates breweries to personally produce our beers. We also personally develop, market and sell each beer.
Currently we are brewing out of four Sydney breweries; the Australian Brewery (Rouse Hill), Rocks Brewing (Alexandria), Young Henry’s (Newtown) and Nomad Brewing Co (Brookvale).
