3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
one of my favourite beers, easily a session beer for me, just the right amount of punch with the hops and the malt backbone to support it all.....

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pretty clean and standard ipa. More on the pale side if theres one. A nice hop aroma and the head poured well. Hint of pine and grassy flavour. No complaints

If you’re at a pub in Australia you might be lucky enough to find this in a bottle and break the lager boredom. It’s a decent IPA but the hop aroma and flavour is somewhat mild – they could have put some more hops in!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not sure why but I’m not getting the IPA in this brew. It’s a good beer - but more of a double malty mild to my taste. Will look to try again though and update initial rating as required.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours copper to brown color with a big and solid head. Aroma is malt, citrus fruits and a bit floral. Medium to heavy malty backbone with a taste of orange, brown sugar, a bit of pine. rather narrow, medium lasting bitterness. Good carbonation level. Overall a solid IPA with a faint floral touch.

Tap. Nice IPA, closer to the pale ale territory than IPA but I suppose it’s trying to compete with hop hog. It’s good, but not ’hop hog’ good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Brewcraft at home. Dark hazy amber pour - maybe too dark? Thick foamy, slightly yellowed head. Aroma is dank sweet fruity hops. Taste is big fruity and bitter hops. A bit muddled though - dank and bitter. Not bad though - lots of flavor, just seems to be missing some direction. Slightly vegetal finish. Tastes higher ABV than it is. Not bad but not great value here.

Poured from a 330 ml bottle into a IPA glass. Rich golden colour with a robust white head. Very hoppy, with citrus and pine coming through, with a malt balance and backbone. Extremely enjoyable.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Poured into the Spiegelau glass that came with the beer, pours a nice golden colour with a solid 1 finger head.
Aroma. Aroma of sweet and juicy fresh citrus.
Taste. A strong pine flavour up front, followed by a nice mintiness.
Overall. Quite a good beer full of flavour yet very mild at the same time, very unique for it’s kind.
