Very good for an IPA. Has the high hop taste you would expect without over doing it. Slight pine taste on the backbend but doesn’t over do the bitterness.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours clear, orange in color, nice white head and nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is of hops (pine and citrus fruits) mixed with a touch of malts and some booze. Taste is hoppy but very well balanced with malts. Very good IPA, well crafted.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
With the growing number of Anerican IPAs being available in Australia this ranks very highly. A good orange hue in the pour and mellow notes of pine resin. There is a bit of same same with the simcoe and amarillo hop flavour but these are well balanced by the malty finish. A really good go to IPA.

Has the right combination of malty sweetness and hops to make it very drinkable. Its how I like an IPA.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a 12oz brown bottle into a nucleated schooner glass, a clear medium orange amber colour with thin but persistent white foam and lace. Rich caramel malt sweetness supporting even bigger American hop bill: grapefruit, woodsy, with dank resin (Simcoe?), tangy sweet citrus and overripe apricots (Crystal?). Lingering bitter bite blending well with fruity English ale yeast esters. Definitely a hops-forward balanced, but more tasty and nicely layered than many competing A-IPAs. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth, well-rounded mouthfeel, nice alcoholic strength, long-lasting bittersweet and fruity aftertastes. Very tasty.

Have had this in the bottle here in Brisbane from BeerBarons but not on tap before. I remember the bottle to have been a solid IPA. I think these kegs have had a very long journey across the seas from Montana to Down Under.
