From a 355ml can. Pours a clear red/brown, tight white head, peppery hops flavours, hint of malt in the aroma, rich and full bodied. Quite good.

hawthorne00 (2662) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 27, 2015
Can. Clear amber with an off white head. Gentle aroma of caramel, grapefruit, some pine and spices. Sweet caramel, some soapy notes, grapefruit and spices. Moderate bitterness struggles through the sweetness. OK.

jmgreenuk (5320) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 16, 2014
Can at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a frothy white head and a little lace. The aroma is woody resin light metallic hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a sharp resin hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Pyobon (1020) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 14, 2014
(Can) Clear reddish brown / dark amber with little loose head. Pleasant aroma with citrus and pine hop and some pepper spice. Medium body with reasonable carbonation. Toffee sweetness at the start with some balancing citrus, however hops quickly dominate right through to a decent long bitter finish. Overall pretty good, but seemed to lack some clarity or crispness to the hop flavours (or maybe I am being influenced by the fact it came in a can).

mkel07 (3922) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2014
Can at Scratch Bar 280814. Pours a very dark amber almost copper red colour with a good layer of foam. There is some malt in the aroma but that’s where it ends. Quite an unusual flavour with a big hit of spice. Full in the mouth with a long lasting finish.

highlandlad (1432) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2014
May have been a problem batch. Signs of autolysis/yeast stress in the aroma. Pity because there was a lot to like if you could get beyond that. Copper with a lavish centimetre of foam showing good length. The herbal aroma is marred by a burnt rubber taint, as if you were sniffing a bottle of Orval that had been run over repeatedly by a car doing doughnuts. Nice chewy body. Toffee malts and spiced apples. Some passionfruit and grapefruit from Pacific NW hops. Definite potential if they sort out the brewing issue. (Wentworth Falls bottlo)

fletchfighters (1190) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 5, 2014
355 ML can Clear orange amber color, slightly off white head. Sticky lacing. Nose is spice, orange and grapefruit. Good dry hopping nose. Taste is spice, dusty orange and grapefruit with a decent caramel malt body. Malts dominate in the taste. Clean and crisp, very bready feel. Not real bitter though. Prickly carbonation and light bodied. Tastes a bit too commercial. Oh wait, it is pretty much a commercial brew pub. Sessionable but very uninspired

Davros (2168) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2013
Pours dark amber with a fading head. Nose shows some spicy and grapefruit-like hops along with a grainy malt character. Flavours include straw, popcorn, spicy hops, grainy malt and herbal notes. Pretty weird stuff there, a couple of big off-flavours.
