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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a bottle. A very well balanced beer, hops and malt in equal doses, the bitterness lingers on the palate but with a smooth malt finish. I like it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Actually doesn't taste half as hoppy as its Bling Bling big brother. A bit tarter in the citrus taste. Not carbonated. Thick foam atop but laces. Mouthfeel is a bit sharper but it has an almost minty edge. Flicks back of the tongue with expected IPA finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange, darkish gold pour, persistent off white head. Malty, caramel, citrusy, pine, tropical fruit aromas. TAste is caramel, fruit, pine, orange brown sugar, sweetish, but piney, resiny bitterness cuts through. Tried this after sequential tasting of the single hop 4-pack - brings it all together nicely!

Shared bottle at Crowbar, thanks to Abemorsten. Pours clear reddish amber with a small creamy white head. Aroma is malty + a lots of hoppy happiness. Weak crisp palate.Taste is dry, weak minerals, crisp and almost bone dry finish. Good, but maybe a bit slim bodied.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the brewery in Beechworth. Immaculate deep copper pour with off-white foamy head and considerable lacing. Biscuit and toffee malts, followed by citrus flowers and pine aromas, although slightly subdued. Initial flavours of biscuity malt leading into grass, citrus, pine and pleasing bitterness. A great ipa because it doesn't get too big on you towards the end of the glass and begs for another to be drunk.
