DeliriumT (469) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 4, 2016
Pours cloudy golden. Aroma of melon, passionfruit, watermelon and fresh grapes. Slight herbal undertones. Flavour is very hoppy (let's face it, that's why you're drinking a session IPA), maybe a little too unbalanced. All in all a fantastic beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HopMagnet (17) - Katoomba, AUSTRALIA - FEB 1, 2016
330mL bottle, BeerBud Advent pack. Pale amber. Gorgeous fresh hoppy tropical aromas, loads of passionfruit and banana. Bold citrusy flavours follow, finishing with a zing of grapefruit bitterness. Great style and character.

Bottle. Cloudy copper, low off-white head. Hop resins dissolved in a bit ethanol. Fruity higher alcohols, tropical hop notes, Medium full, light sticky mouthfeel, sparkly pineapple hop finish. The layer of fullest makes it a bit hard to call this a session IPA IMO.

4 bottles from greenslopes cellars Brisbane, lovely fruity aromas, as is the flavour, delish, very refreshing on a warm Queensland day

Geoff55 (8) - Portland, AUSTRALIA - SEP 28, 2015 does not count
Pours a lightly cloudy light amber with a tight white head that laces well. Must be drunk in a glass , straight from the bottle would disappoint Aromas of passionfruit, lemon, and perhaps dry cut grass. Taste is a little more lighter than the nose might suggest, but still delivers ,tropical fruit at first, followed up by a firmer citrus bitterness. Good use of hops that I think would make a nice session beer , Falls away at the end to a clean finish with a lightly fruity aftertaste.

Brewcult tap takeover at the Durham. Solid session IPA. Wish Iíd noted down a bit more, but I didnít, guess Iíll just have to try it again!

Samma (160) - Fitzroy, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2015
From stubby. Big almost fruity pine nose. Pours clear amber with decent head. Very hop forward yet approachable. Balance between the three hops is admirable. Iím going to test the sessionable claim with the remainder of the 4-pack...

ANZUShophunter (267) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2015
From bottle in Belgian ale glass. Pours amber with rocky head and a burst of fruity aroma driven by strong carbonation. Strong bitter backbone that lingers on the palate. Definitely sessionable.

Nicko (223) - Ashfield, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2015
Slight banana bubblegum aroma, cloudy amber in the glass. A little sour with a medium bitter finish.
