COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sometimes you just want more. So we’ve made a beer with more of the best ingredients available, More malt. More hops. More flavour. This hop bomb is brewed in the tradition of the US West Coast IPA’s with generous hop additions throughout the boil and loads of dry hopping at the end of fermentation. Enjoy!

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.

Pours rosey copper with very little head. Strong aroma of passionfruit and mango. Flavour is a punch of hops (as the name suggests). With every sip a sliver of harshness bites in the aftertaste. All in all a really drinkable beer though ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Andrus86 (395) - Busselton, WA, AUSTRALIA - JUN 30, 2016
BOTTLE. Hazy golden pour with solid foam white head.. Sweet fruit hops & malt combo on the nose.. Sweet juicy hops upfront going to a thin sweet malt finish, balances well but a short thin finish.. Sourced AS

Jado (766) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 24, 2016
330 ml bottle. Clear bronzed amber topped by a thick and lasting white head. Aromas of burnt orange, pie crust, grapefruit, pine and flowers. Taste starts out with a malty sweetness that’s soon overtaken by a firm citrus zest bitterness complemented by pine and floral notes. Long finish leading into a distinctly orange aftertaste. Really good stuff.

On tap at Mrs Parma, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out floral hops, some perfume and some astringent notes on the end. Flavour tastes like detergent, with lots of soapy, perfumey, floral hops. Dry finish with the soapy hops upfront. Doesn’t seem as good as the ratings suggest. Meh.

Nice. Clean hop profile and some almost sweet hops underpin the palate. Very friendly. Almost now world IPA for beginners but perhaps I’m being a bit unfair; this is good beer.

Westkyoto77 (621) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 15, 2016
Wow. Poured a lovely creamy copper, Knockout nose of pine, resin, and a bit of sweet orange in there too. Full flavour of caramel, chewy fruits. Very moreish. Can see what all the fuss is about now.

Love this! Pours a light copper colour, with a yellowy off white head. Great aroma, probably my favourite bit about the beer. Pine, citrus but not so much pine that it is overpowering. Big hoppy hit and quite bitter but still well balanced! There is a good malty taste which works beautifully with the hops.

mrjez (441) - Osaka, JAPAN - OCT 15, 2015
Pours orangey-copper with a thin head. The aroma is the best feature of this beer - piney hop, underlying malt, and a melange of citrus mixed in. The "hop bomb" unfortunately is a bit of an illusion. There’s a bitter front with pine resin, that kinda masks the other flavours from the nose, and it really drops off. You end up with a thin watery trail off. It has a good taste but lacks presence.

Good night Australia, Its been fun! A nice send off, a clear crisp, tasty IPA. Bold but accessible, pine resin but enough malt to capture the novice’s attention. A new appreciation Of IPA from a different perspective.
