COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A couple of centuries back, IPA was made strong and hoppy to protect it on those long voyages from England to India. These days, we just make it that way because it tastes great.
An intensive five-stage hopping process delivers a rich, robust character, smooth flavour and an inviting aroma. So, while it has all the mighty ‘BAM’ of the original, it’s surprisingly well balanced – a bit like our skateboarding elephant.
Five malted barley varieties, five natural hop varieties, fruity ale yeast and water.

chrisbroadie (13) - Wakerley, AUSTRALIA - AUG 12, 2014
Poured to glass from 330ml bottle. Ar: Fruity, bit piney and rasins. Nice / Ap: Orange and cloudy, minimal head or lacing / T: Sweet followed by good bitterness, just a tiny bit of salt lingering / P: Pretty light and thin, softly carbonated almost flat, loooonnnngggg bitter finish / O: Sadly i expected more i think perhaps my expectations were too high. Its very alcoholic so its definitely a 2-beer job on a school night and its over. Overall its ok, im a tad disappointed but i think my own expectations have probably caused this. I might have another later expecting less and i might be nicely surprised

KBBC (3) - yeppoon, AUSTRALIA - JUL 7, 2014 does not count
Make sure you read the percentage before consumption. 7% which tends to let gou know after a couple. First drink out of a bottle so no judge yet on head or natural colour. Strong pallet of pine and warmth. Bit of a let down from the comments given about it. Definately doesnt taste like figs But after a 4 pack anyone would start feeling the meaning.

Not sure this beer lives up to expectation. Definitely peach and vanilla in a not-so-strong aroma. Nice in the middle with with piney tinge. Not a noticeable finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear golden, aroma of floral hops, tastes hoppy too. A pretty good beer, drink it cold.

Dervock (501) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - JAN 8, 2014
Bottle - pours golden with a small white head, some lacing on glass. Vanilla, peach, biscuit malt and flowery hops tart smooth but straight away the bitterness bites, fruit and flowery hops comes through on the taste., there is another bite at the back of the palate which I think is down to the alcohol hit. Long lingering dry fruity finish. Mouthfeel is creamy.

Bygers (810) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle 0,33l. Pours an amber colour with a fading white head that diminish and leaves no lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, biscuity and bready malt with earthy, resinous and floral hops leading to orange marmalade characters. Same for taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4 pack from Dan’s. Was a little disappointed in this beer, had some good hop aroma, but I found the bitterness to have a harshness to it that wasn’t a pleasant drinking experience.

Niksko (354) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 17, 2013
330ml bottle.
Pours a clear golden orange with not much head at all.
Nose is lots of fresh fruit. Pineapple, orange. mango, and also some banana. There’s also an orange candy component and a sweet caramel note.
The taste is more fresh fruit. The citrus dominates, but I’m really digging the banana notes in here from the yeast. There’s also some more tropical components (mango, pineapple) and there’s a bit of sweet caramel to back it up. But this is definitely from the west coast school of IPAs. The finish is quite dry, with a subtle hint of biscuit and a moderate grapefruit and pine bitterness.
Body is on the lighter side of medium, spot on carbonation.
A really enjoyable beer. The hops are balanced perfectly, and there’s not too much sweetness. It also just has that almost indescribable clean quality that makes it really refreshing and delicious.
