UPDATED: SEP 5, 2015 From Bottle. A modest IPA with balance and sessionability. Not Hawthorns best drop but still a commendable, drinkable beer.

Pyobon (1130) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 5, 2015
(Bottle) Hazy golden amber with good white head. Nice aroma of passion fruit and pine. Medium body with good carbonation. Fruity hoppy flavours dominate over quite a sweet light malty base. Pleasant easy drinking IPA.

TimE (4220) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 26, 2015
Light amber color. Fairly malty, but overall undistinguished IPA that I am surprised the score is so high.

anstei (429) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 15, 2015
330ml straight from the bottle. Sweet summer fruit nose. Hoppy taste, very sweet, but not from the malts somehow. Bitter finish.

Sevenlee (1585) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - DEC 19, 2014
Pours a hazy amber colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, citrus, fruit, pine and hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a nice hop finish. OK.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2014
Pours a hazy amber with a foamy head that fades to a nice lacing. Fruity aromas of passionfruit, some straw-like grassy notes, mango and some spice. Like nothing I have had before. Flavour is well balanced, with a bready malt backbone that showcases toffee and caramel balanced with the sweet fruity esters of the Aussie hops. A tad overcarbonated for my liking, but this was remedied by leaving it to warm up a little. The best of the Hawthorn beers

RafeAU (477) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - SEP 28, 2014
Pours with very attractive frothy head and nice lacing. Compared to American ipas this is mild on the hops. decent malt showing through. This is okay if you’re out somewhere with no better options, as I was (rumbar)

Ratman197 (11500) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle poured a hazy amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of bread, earthiness, grapefruit and a hint of pine. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, grapefruit, floral notes, light orange zest and a hint of earthiness with ac risp dry lightly bitter finish.

orange_3084 (127) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 7, 2014
Pours a hazy golden-orange colour with a medium white head and good lacing. Tropical fruit aroma. Mango and pineapple with delicate spicy floral notes. Touch of grass. Fairly thin body. Taste is a little bit underwhelming. Grassy and perhaps a little sudsy, but not unpleasant. Moderately bitter. Needs to warm a bit for any malt to be particularly noticeable.
