4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of the best Aussie DIPAs around with plenty of fresh hops on the nose and tongue (tropical fruits, oranges, grapefruits, pine resin) but superbly balanced by a robust caramel malt bill. Palate is oily and medium bodied with a substantially bitter fresh green hop finish and amazing drinkability for an ABV of 8.5%. it has less of the pine resin notes than Riverside Brewing’s 777 which this beer rivals. From a 330ml bottle (bottled on 5/1/16) it pours clear deep amber with a persistent dense foamy white head.
