COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with lots of malt and a ridiculous amount of hops. Expect huge hop aromatics, rich malty profile and a good lick of lip-smacking hop bitterness on the finish. Perfect with bold, spicey food such as Indian curry

Pineapple leads the tropical element on nose. Biscuity and malty there is a grand finale with bitterness. A great old style version. 330ml, 6.2%, 1.6std drks. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330 ml bottle Hazy, dark copper color. Massive light tan head. Just a tad bit over carbonated. OK, way over carbonated. Good lacing though. Nose is mostly caramel. Big backbone and some stone fruit. Got some whifs of plastic at first but settled down into malt. Very English taste. Biscuit and caramel malt. Lots of stone fruit. Peach and apricot. Lots of resin though. Oily as heck. Dry finish. Medium bodied. Initial carbonation aside, not too shabby an effort.

A big malty IPA with caramel and even a little chocolate combining with pine needles and grapefruit to produce a really smooth beer.

Surely a bit NQR? Miles off the commercial description. Old style with minerals and rust but not much by way of fresh hops and resin. Seems unduly restrained.

mattyhennessy (375) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2014
Poured a red amber with a foamy off white head that doesn’t hold. Very low carbonation, even for an ipa. Almost flat. Strong citrus and piney aroma, with a big malt sweetness to follow. Taste is a well balanced caramel with citrus and stonefruit. Resinous bitterness to match the oily texture. A nice drop, but was very undercarbed
