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!

Samma (124) - 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 (60) - 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 (207) - Ashfield, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2015
Slight banana bubblegum aroma, cloudy amber in the glass. A little sour with a medium bitter finish.

Jado (648) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAR 16, 2015
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a lightly hazy honey-amber with a tight white head that laces well. Aromas of passionfruit, lemon, white wine, grapes and cut grass. Taste is a little more subdued than the nose might suggest, but still delivers lots of tropical fruit at first, followed up by a firmer grapefruit zest bitterness. Falls away at the end to a clean finish with a lightly fruity aftertaste. Tasty lighter style IPA.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2015 Good easy drinking IPA. Nice and hoppy but not too much. Fits the profile. Good IPA for a longer sesh

Muggus69 (1491) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 19, 2015
330mL bottle from Beer Cartel Hazy sort of pale amber body, small white foam. Moderate intensity nose; biscuity malts, spicy, woody, citrusy, slightly passionfruity hops. Medium body & carbonation, drops away rather quickly on the finish. Hop forward on the body - pine, wood, dried leafy herbs, bitter citrus & overly ripe tropical fruits. Bitterness rather high, thereís a touch of biscuity malt but balance is off. Something seems amiss here - perhaps a bit old? Itís nice, but perhaps not as much as expected.

whoisghost (102) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 13, 2015
A murky bronze colour with a fast disappearing, stark white head. Very fresh and tropical fruit hop aromas, smells sweet. Light and punchy to taste, gentle pine notes that leave a slight lingering bitterness. This isnít overly complex, but is perfect for a session IPA. Tastes a little under carbonated, and a little thin - but theres a nice malty end to it that rounds it out nicely.

alberti92 (158) - - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle from cellarbrations super super store in hami hill. Pours golden with a thick creamy head leaving loads of lacing. On the nose it's juicy tropical fruits. It's low to medium bodied with low carbonation. Taste is loads of citrus with plenty of grassy notes with hints of grapefruit and passion fruit with a not so over powering bitter finish. Solid session IPA.

Deep gold with a fluffy white head. Piney, malty aroma. Taste is pine, caramel, a little soapy, long bitter finish
