500ml bottle from The Wine Emporium 080613. Nice sessionable IPA that is not over hopped and doesn’t strip the taste buds from your tongue.

Love this beer. Such a great session IPA that ticks all the boxes with aroma and taste. The Nelson Sauvin hops come through perfectly. This is a mighty fine Aussie IPA and up there with the best.

Very happy to give this a 5. Up there with Feral Hop Hog in my opinion. I know I am biased but this is well balanced and very enjoyable. Very hoppy.

Big citrus and resin aroma. Cloudy golden colour with excellent head. Big resinous flavour with some malty relief. Med body and carbonation ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maneliquor (2992) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 5, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Very good looking stuff. Golden straw with a thick and sticky white head. Nose has plenty of stone fruits and bright citrus zesty notes. Taste is balanced citric zest and stone fruits. Nice tang here with plenty of peach and nectarine. Touch too much carbonation for my liking but helps it flow. Good stuff

Had on tap at Mrs Parmas in Melbourne. A pretty decent IPA but lacked a bit of bitterness and complexity. Nonetheless a solid IPA from a Victorian Brewery coming back from a short hiatus, keep up the good work guys!

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - JAN 16, 2014
Pours a deep copper colour with a okey white soapy head. Aroma from the tropical fruits; passionfruit and peach, also some pine in there. Flavour is much like the aroma, but a bit of caramel in addition. A bit too bitter finish imo. The thing I really don’t like with this on, is the mouthfeel. It’s way too carbonated, which makes a really soapy feeling in the mouth. An okey Ipa, but not much more.

Gramoit (351) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2013
Really good session beer that is all about the hops. Good flavour for a smaller beer, and is dominated by the Nelson Sauvin especially in the aroma. Perfect for sessions but will be never one that would start the session due to the lack of body and big flavours.

Dredd (686) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - DEC 19, 2013
I really like this, a good session beer. The sauvin hops are quite prominent on the aroma. Good balance of cereal malt character and decent finish. Certainly not as treasonous as some Iowa’s out there.

bgb1991 (105) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 5, 2013
Pillowy head and constantly streaming bubbles. Floral hop aroma. Bit of roasted nutty malt flavours, nice sweet floral and earthy finish. A little thin feeling but thats being picky. Great sessionable IPA.
