Indian Pale Ale / This beer is for the hoplovers. Cascade and Sauvin hops give a powerful spicy, citrus hit. The solid malt backbone and assertive bitterness bring the beer into balance. Be careful... dangerously drinkable. from the label

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, - DEC 23, 2012
Tap @ union hotel. Pours cloudy orange gold with decent off white head and big lace. Aromas of passionfruit, goose berry and citrus. A touch grassy and a light caramel over a bit of graininess. Med light body. Bitterness moderate, a touch sharp and mineral but light flavors from malt and hops linger. Fruity, a touch grainy and subtly toasty on finish. Refreshing beer.

TedE (1015) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2016
330ml bottle into schooner glass. Hazy orange/bronze colour, thin solid white head. Some carbonation visible. Slight aroma of caramel and light fruit. Good body, cleansing taste. Finish is short with a touch of malt balanced by fruity hops. Simple,subdued but nicely balanced.

Jado (779) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2016
330 ml bottle. Orange body topped by a thin white head. Aromas of peach, lemon, pineapple, grass and a little pine needles. Rather malt foward in the mouth at first before a zesty hop note sneaks in. Agree with other commenters it’s more APA than IPA, but quite a tasty beer nonetheless.

Bottle. Orange amber, low offwhite head. Light papery malt, metallic earthy bittering hops. Medium light body. Clayish herbal finish. Did not get much of the aromatic hops - old bottle (bb feb 16)?

Maris (1393) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - OCT 22, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2015 From a 330ml bottle on 22/10/2015. Pours a clear deep golden with a medium head. Has a mild aroma of caramel with a bit of fruit on top. Take a sip and there’s a decent dash of caramel malt, some indistinct fruitiness, and a moderate hop bittereness. I can’t detect any Sauvin in there at all. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Doesn’t really present as an IPA for mine, as it’s pretty light on for hops. More a just decent, malt forward APA.

Jmar33 (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle. Looks, smells and tastes like more of a pale ale that an all out IPA. Nice enough hop flavour but could do with a bit more IPA kick

Ruby colour with a big head. Sweet and malt biscuit over an astringent under lying grippy bed of vegemite and sourness. Very nice.

Citrus aroma, gigantic head, lovely colour, bit too citrusy, lacking complexity.
