Solid amber colour with a thin, slightly off white head. Sediment is cascading down to the bottom of the glass. Really sweet aroma, tropical hops with a significant whiff of pineapple. Big upfront bitterness, but it doesn’t linger too long - unfortunately it does almost nullify a lot of the other flavours. There’s a slight sweet and fruity flavour to this - not terribly complex but present none the less. Palate isn’t as dense as I’d like, good carbonation but overall a little too watery; barely a three.

On tap at Dove and Olive in Sydney for Grand Final weekend. Nice copper colour with relatively small head. Smells of fruity pine and stonefruit. Nice resinous flavours with a good hop backbone with not too much malt. The bitterness not as big as I’d hoped but easy drinkable IPA. Nice brew Boat Rocker and one highly recommended.

Tap. Definitely a hop bomb! There’s so much citrus and stone fruit smell it’s almost more satisfying to smell the beer than drink it. The taste, luckily, lives up to the smell. Get it as fresh as possible!

maneliquor (3156) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours vibrant orange with a slight haze to it and a small, firm white cap on top. Nose is very mandarin forward with a slight salt and zestiness while it retains a fairly resinous character throughout. The resinous note it carries translates to a nice backbone for the beer in the taste. Again, it’s very mandarin focused with a pinch of mint and zest while it comes across slightly dank driven. Drinks like a fresh tropical juice with that little bit of stickiness to give it an american feel. Solid as drop

From a bottle. Pours cloudy dark orange, coarse head, the name pretty much says it all with a big punch of resiny hops.

ALLOVATE (2437) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2014
Pours with great enthusiasm to reach up with a tumultuous two inches of rocky white foam atop a deep, ruddy amber. Bright but speckled by a fine yeast. Big, bold, tropical fruit punch nose. Whacks the olfactories with hints of ripe tangelo, cumquat, mango and apricot with a spiced, camphorous, piney mix to meld it altogether. An initial rounded fruit sweetness precedes a sharp, herbal bitterness. Ample tropical fruit just like the nose with a hankering towards tangy citrus. Quite creamy and full in mouthfeel. Lasting, quenching, herbaceous finish with blushings of bitter, underripe citrus. Rich, toasted malts compliment it well. Very clean and refreshing stuff. So deadly sessionable. This is a killer pale ale. Well crafted, fresh and surprisingly good. Loved it! (33cL, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2014 This batch is more malt than hops - I preferred it when the hops shone through. Still good though just not as vibrant.

Poured into a glass. Slightly cloudy due to sediment, small off white, quickly shrinking head. Smells strongly of stone fruit and pine. An agin with the stone fruit and pine in the mouth and a bitter after taste. This is a really lovely beer.

(On tap) Clear amber with reasonable white head. Nice citrus and pine aroma. Light body with good carbonation. Fresh tang over biscuity malt to start. Peppery spice develops and then the hops build for a nice bitter finish. Not over the top just nicely very hoppy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gold, slightly hazy with a decent white head. Malty, piney, slightly tropical fruit aromas. Taste is malty, with big hoppy, fruity bitterness and a little sweet. Nice - easy drinking
