4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Batch 279, bb June 2014
Golden color, clean, with generous head. Strong hop aroma, fruity and resiny; lemon peel, light pine needles, very light manure; later, some mandarin. Smooth mouthfeel; good toffee flavor, lean, with minimal residual sweetness; the hop is very fruity; the bitterness level high but well blended. Balanced final.
Easily drinkable, fresh, excellent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is like a comfortable cardigan, a bit thin in places. Draft and highly anticipated and recommend. It is something I’d happily drink a lot of in a session. But it is safe. I was expecting something more aggressive, or peaky in the profile, and I got a very very good, easy drinking safe beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours golden orange with a finger of fluffy white head. Upfront aroma of mango, grapefruit and caramel biscuitiness. Fuckin barnstormer. Flavours are textbook - loads of tropical hop flavours, mango and citrus backed with a cracking caramel malt backbone, get a bitta that in ya. Nice present but not overbearing bitterness. Brb getting a carton.

Heady citrus, tropical hops aromas. Pineapple/mano/peach flavors, a hop festival in your mouth, very smooth and addicting, a great hop elixir @.@

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours clear pale orange with a thin white head that disappears quickly leaving decent lacing. Light aromas of caramel, oranges, hay and pine. Light to medium body, lively carbonation, oily texture, medium sweet, brief finish. I think it’s a bit overrated.

Wonderful aroma of caramel and a subtle but profound hoppyness. Quite balanced but nothing to write home about.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pineapple hops, pungent and pleasant aroma, and clear as a bell liquid gold. Smooth going down, fruity and bitter at the same time. Might be my favorite IPA, or more accurately, my favorite that I can regularly get at the store. Great stuff.
