2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A-- A deep, earthy brownish copper color. A one finger light brown head. Good head retention and just a little bit of lacing. Much darker than I expected.
S-- Lots of sweet, yeasty malt with this. Also get candied orange, lime and grapefruit. Hops are soft and malt is much bigger in the smell. A lot of sweetness to this.
T-- Grapefruit and malt. Pretty big doses of each. The grapefruit is a on the sour bitter side but workable as it does finally taste like an IPA should. Malt is a a little soft but works OK to tone down the grapefruit.
M-- Medium carbonation and a bit creamy. Heavy, bitter earthy grapefruit taste. To me it lacks the lemon and pine taste and feel that make IPA’s really good. Pretty one dimensional.
D-- Workable in small batches.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours copper in colour, with a small head that recedes into a thin film. It is a fairly malty ipa, with hops taking a back seat but still influencing the taste. A fairly sessionable ipa. Overall it is a good brew but would like it to be a little more hoppy for my tastes, but one I want to have in the future.

In bottle at Craigs. Pours a golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of lemon zest, grassy hops, caramel and yeast. Similar flavours. Mild carbonation and bitterness. Quite a malty finish. OK.

Wow, this beer really packed some hop punch! Great big hit of fresh hops straight up to let you know what you’re in for. A good malt flavour balances out the hops and keeps the beer clean and well balanced. On tap @ the Wheatsheaf, Adelaide.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The best BRB beer I’ve tasted so far. It sports a pleasing deep rich colour although with a average head today. I also tasted a degree of malt heaviness out of proportion with the usually heavely weighted hops componant the style should boast. Despite this, this beer drinks remarkedly well with a slight astringent finish
