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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Comes in a triple pack of 330ml bottles and a Spiegelau IPA glass. Looks great with a hazy copper-amber body and a large foamy off-white head that displays great retention and lace. Aroma is robust biscuity caramel malts with plenty of balancing citrus and pine resinous hops and this is transferred to the palate which is medium bodied and lively. Finish is resinous and bitter but not overpowering. Balanced and very enjoyable.

330 ml bottle into glass. Robust hop nose, a little malt as well. Copper beer with solid two finger white head. A few bubbles ascending. Bitter chalky mouthfeel. Even more bitter finish. Leaves a beautiful floral hop aftertaste. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle. Bottled 2/9/14. Pours a medium copper colour with a towering off white head which lasted well and left some excellent lacing. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, tropical fruit and malt. Aroma was quite intense on opening the bottle but in the glass shows some restraint. Medium bitterness and light to medium sweetness. Medium bodied, smooth and a gentle bitter finish. Very approachable. 8.

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

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2015 Not sure why, but Iím not getting the "IPA" in this brew. Itís 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. Have done just that (tried again) and I still donít get this beer. It is nice enough - but in no way an IPA (to my taste at least).

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 itís trying to compete with hop hog. Itís good, but not íhop hogí 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.
