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.

RBJG2. Clear golden colour, aroma is fruity orange, big hoppiness. Taste is less hoppy, much less harsh, fruity, bit umami, maybe seafood. Big difference between smell and taste. Nice.

Light golden color. Marmalade and grapefruit dominate the nose. Sweet maltiness hit the tounge initially. Fully bodied. Marmalde and lemon in the mouth. a bit thick and syrupy, but pretty enjoyable. Moderately bitter finish. A touch too sweet, but interesting.

Dredd (687) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2013
Pour is light amber bordering orange with thin head. Aroma is slightly resinous and piney but not as big as i expected based on what I read on the bottle. Flavour is the same, very balanced , bready stonefruit with a medium finish. Given the 7%abv expected a more challenging beer but could quite comfortably have a few of these compared to animals like "The Beast"

Kurtos (100) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 6, 2013
Aroma. aroma’s of a tropical fruit punch, with some slight pine notes coming through. Appearance. Poured from 650ml bottle. Pours a nice cloudy orange colour, looks a little bit like a ginger beer. Taste. Sweet Tropical flavours, i can taste Banana, Pineapple, Passionfruit and also a piney grapefruit flavour. Overall. This beer is just like drinking a tropical fruit juice, but in beer form. however at the current price point i would not buy this beer again.
