3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a Murky Orange Juice Colour.
Aroma. smells of sweet fruits
Taste. Quite unique, unlike anything else iíve tasted, very piney with not much else going on. as a previous commenter mentioned not viable as a single hop ipa, but would be something else if used in conjuction with other hop varieties.
Overall, this beer is quite piney and bitter, but with no other flavours to back it up it sadly falls short of being a great beer, none the less i would still recommend it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle from Craft Wine Store. Reasonably good hop aroma that carries over into the flavour. Looks good when poured into a glass.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle cheers Boobies at GABS. Pours dirty lemon with a thick and fluffy white head. Nose is full of spice and tropical fruits - kind of comes across as a rye a little bit. Taste is plenty pine driven with tropical fruits, zest and more spice again. The spice adds a nice element. Enjoyable

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Amber with a white head. Aroma of pine, honeydew melon, kumquats, lychees, light caramel. Bracingly dry and quite bitter with resinous pine largely obscuring the tropical fruit.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Woot. That is some dry hops. Itís like a desert in my mouth even though itís full of liquid. The taste is overwhelmingly grapefruit and sawdust. Not a fan of this, but I love the single hop series - it gives you a great chance to really understand the hop flavours. I can see this giving an IPA a really nice kick but itís a bit like grenache - better with Shiraz and Mourvedre. Some Galaxy hops ploise!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 330ml bottle on 8/5/2014. Pours a dark golden with quite a big head. The aroma features lots of tropical and stone fruits with some floral notes. Taste wise, fruit again dominates, particularly peach and apricot. But itís the hops that ultimately hold sway here. Itís very firm and dry with oodles of puckering grapefruit. Has a medium body and lively carbonation. Bridge Road tend to be a bit hit and miss for me, but this is a goodín. Iím a bit surprised about the relatively luke warm response to this so far. All up, this is a very good IPA. Canít believe it weighs in at only 4.8%.

Pours an amber gold with a small white head. Very strong passionfruit and pine aromas. Taste has a caramel sweetness.with only a slight initial bitter punch. Taste also has some peach and passionfruit, but is very piney.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange gold with very little head. Passionfruit aroma, very strong, almost smells like a fruit drink rather than beer. Taste is malt, with big passionfruit and pine, long piney bitterness. Drinking in sequence with other beers in this 4 x single hop pack - probably less "approachable" than the summer but interesting, and really great idea to produce a pack like this

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle, part of a 4 pack of aussie hop variety ales. and by far my favourite. amber with a thin but lingering head; huge passionfruit aroma - vine, pulp, seeds, skin and all; just the right balance between sweet and tart passionfruit flavours, finishing quite bitter. excellent stuff
