330ml bottle from Saveur Biere. Hazy orange amber colour with a thick white foam head leaving lacing. Aroma of mango, orange, mellow hoppy. Taste is malt caramel with juicy mango, floral citrus and pine, hop resins and tangy bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry dusty bitter finish. Nicely drinkable IPA.

APPEARANCE: golden ambar color and hazy. medium light ivory head with moderate persistance. TASTE: similar to the aroma with moderate hop flavor (citric, some pine, slightly grassy). medium-low to low malt background, slightly sweet and a faint toffee note. medium-high bitterness that endures after an almost dry finish. PALATE: medium-light body and slight creamy. medium carbonation. OVERALL: an average IPA.

erickok (5095) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 8, 2016
Better than expected aroma, well hopped and balanced. Simpler taste profile, drinkable but to short aftertaste. Still a great BBQ beer I reckon. Much better than expected. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

SinH4 (2306) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - APR 15, 2016
Bottle. Amber color with small white head. Aroma is piney hops, forestfloor, toffee, caramel. Taste is piney, caramel, hints of butter and old hops (won’t blame that on the beer, after all it’s from the other side of the world. Bittersweet finish. Quite full-bodied for just 5.8%. Not bad.

Grzesiek79 (3851) - Radom, POLAND - MAR 5, 2016
Many thanks for this Australian IPA to kevnic2008. 33cl from Saveur-Biere (Lille,France). Niewielka piana ale spora metnosc koloru silnej pomarańczy. Zapach dość ostry chmielowo-zywiczny to za sprawa chyba chmielu Nelson Sauvin. Pomarancze, grejfruty i sosna. Sapach cytrusowy z przewaga czerwonych pomarańczy i ananasa. Lekko slodowe i wyraźnie zakończone wytrawnym i zywicznym posmakiem. Niezbyt czeste IPA jakie testuje, bardzo mile zaskoczenie. Polecam

Koelschtrinker (16242) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 2, 2016
Blumig hopfiger Geruch, Zitrus, leichte Malzaromen. Im Antrunk harmonisch hopfig-herb-bitter, dabei minimal trocken. Die Aromenzusammensetzung bleibt prinzipiell gleich, später steigt die Herbe, Malznoten kommen auf. Süffig, rund, erfrischend. 10/11/12/11/10/11

OK, but are we going hawthorn silly. Mild hops for an IPA, is that’s why it’s an Australian IPA?

Pretty hazy gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is light, mildly dry and has a good fine crispness. Light malts, mildly sweet and carrying a modest tangy caramel. Hops are light and floral citric. Tangy orange in to aniseed and hop spice. Underneath - a mild tropical fruit vibe. Light finish. Bitterish floral linger. Not a sumptuously hopped IPA but plenty going on.
