Disappointing aroma for a IPA that is over carbonated. IPA’s of this stature should have more of a floral balanced presence with a smooth after taste. The only assault this beer makes is with the tip of the tounge, over carbonation overwhelms the hops and leaves a thin aftertaste that is somewhat sour. needs work.

Run of the mill but good enough (and only $4 so pretty cheap for Oz). More old skill than anything will bitter metallic flavours, as opposed to juicy, generous resiny hops. Just doesn’t really get going.

KeefOz (763) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2014
BB Aug-14. Poured a cloudy honey colour with a two- to three-finger light tan foamy head that retained well, leaving a thin foamy film to the end of the beer. Laced well. Carbonation high with large bubbles forming trails. Aroma of lovely floral and spicy hops with a hint of mild caramel malt. Taste of earthy hops bitterness with an oily/resin mouthfeel. Light body Dry hops bitterness on the finish. Quite OK.

Jado (439) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2014
From 12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange-amber with a tight and lasting white head and moderate carbonation. Aromas of pine, orange, grapefruit, caramel and flowers. Taste is fresh orange and citrus at the front backed by a caramel sweetness at the front, with a firm pine resin bitterness on the mid-palate. Sweet biscuits, spice and light orange at the back end. Very nice IPA.

"LIGHT GRAPEFRUIT" ???? Who the fuck said "LIGHT" grapefruit? This tastes like a glass of fresh squeezed grapefruit juice! Nothing else!!! Not that there’s anything wrong with that. But Jebus Kripes!!!!!! The flavor and bitterness of the aftertaste SCREAMS grapefruit! Bottle from Woodmans.

orange_3084 (73) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 7, 2014
Pours slightly hazy golden amber colour with medium white head and nice lacing. Aroma is floral with hints of grapefruit and pine. A little soapy. Thin to medium body. Taste has adequate malt backing, but doesn’t have a punchy bitterness that I had hoped for. Finish is clean.

Tap. Golden pour with half a finger of head. Lemon zest, floral, pine. Fruity, sweeter and lighter than typical. Bitter finish. Easy to drink

Bottle to glass. Fresh orange and citrus aroma. Slight sweet grain. Hazy golden-orange with a white head that is creamy and lingers. Taste is juicy orange, fresh grass and slight lemon. Moderate high bitterness with spritzy finish.

Reviewed from notes. She pours a hazy golden color and leaves about the same colored body with a two and a half finger white foamy head that rises a bit and falls, lacing is very clingy and has a thick foaminess. The aroma has big bold hops, floral yet piney, subtle sweet maltiness tries to linger forward as it warms, but mainly combines wonderfully. The taste has a nice super smooth bittersweetness all the way through into the aftertaste, as the caramel malts combine fantastically with the bitter hops, leaves a dry finish. On the palate, this one sits about a light to medium, fairly sessionable, carbonation seems a bit under for an AIPA, but actually just makes this one better for the summer. Overall, in my opinion, this is a spectacular AIPA for the summer that I would have again.
