From the bottle pours a dirty brown/yellow. Frothy, lasting head with some streaky lacing. Some malt sweetness in the aroma. I found this had very little actual flavour, especially upfront. There is some mid bitter grapefruit but it is the lasting sensation (not flavour) of roof of mouth bitterness that I mainly remember. Alright.

What an interesting beer. Probably the best version of the two styles mixed Ive had. Great aroma of grape fruit and slight bubble gum. Very refreshing and dry. Interesting, thirst quenching and tasty.

Muggus69 (1409) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 4, 2015
330mL bottle Bottled 12/3/14 Cloudy straw coloured beer. Holds a dense head of good size. Aroma is quite different; phenolic peppery, clovey spice, freshly cut grass, sour dough starter, grapefruit, lemongrass, lemon myrtle(?), floral herbal hop notes, pilsner malts. Full kind of chewy body seemingly conducive of a cloudy yeasty sort of beer, high carbonation, bit of acidic bite to it. Rather spicy/peppery on the body, touch of dough, pale cereal maltiness, plenty of grass, herbal hops, with a touch of tropical fruit & citrus. High bitterness, a touch sharp - might be a Galaxy thing? Interesting hybrid - always in two minds whether it works or not, tastes good but the balance is a touch off.

CacheManyHose (354) - HONG KONG - JAN 31, 2015
Very cloudy straw-beige with thick bubbly white head and huge stripey legs. Smells estery (banana, heavy yeast, pepper/clove), other fruit (peach, apricot), bit of soap. Tastes quite bitter, resin, yeast/wood, very sour finish. Body is tart, bit frothy, fine carbonation. Aroma is nice but more like a Saison than an IPA; taste is less interesting but still yeasty and a little sour.

Bottle. Pours a light golden colour with a little head that doesn't linger for long. A bit of sediment clouds things up a touch. First sniff gave me a herb-ish kind of hit...Very enjoyable flavours from the hops. Worth trying!
