3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
