3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Pours cloudy orange gold with decent off white head and good lace. Aromas of citrus pine and big grapefruit. Some grainy nutty malt character on the nose. Med light body, zesty carbonation, decent level of bitterness, big hop hit. Grapefruit and pine do it justice till the final yeast bite..

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!

2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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.

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Slowbeer. Clear, bright amber, billowing, soapy head, aroma is grass, lemon/citrus, quite bitter, but not enough malt body and sweetness to balance it out. Not bad though.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
An unusually pale look for this ipa. The citrus and floral aromas are nice enough, but it’s the taste that packs the wallop. The hops are very lemony and tart, which gives it a distinct flavour. The lack of malt is disappointing but it does make it a sessionable IPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 500ml bottle on 17/11/2013. Pours a relatively clear golden. Has a pleasant aroma of fruity hops. The flavour features lots of passionfruit, lychee, mango and apricot, with a touch of spice. The bitterness is firm and lingering. There not a lot of malt in there, but this has enough to it to please a fussy hop head. Has a fullish body and medium carbonation. An enjoyable, very well made IPA.
