3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Initial aroma is quite fresh and young with hay, grass and citrus all clouding through. The clolouring is gold much to my surprise I really expected a deeper brown than golden yellow. The head frothy, white foam nothing special but my glass not the best.medium bitterness, very bitter initially but soothes after a few mouthfuls with medium sourness tasting more like a sauv blanc at times, light body, slick feel, wanted more but no. I guess a more modern take on the Australian Ipa compared to the north American ipa. Still quite sessionable enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle from Dan Murphy’s, Hurstville. Pours an orange amber colour, off-white foam head leaving lacing and aroma of caramel, toffee, peach, orangey hop resin. Taste is malt caramel, toffee, fig with grapefruity earthy bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry tangy bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

I want to like this more, if just for the name. And it is a good drop, but just not as balanced / smooth as some other IPA’s out there.

(Bottle) Clear golden amber with small off-white head. Lovely aroma - grapefruit with hints of peach and biscuits. Medium body with plentiful carbonation. Great taste, dominated by hop flavours, but not aggressively bitter. There’s sweetness and citrus in nice balance at the start, both mellow and give way to some biscuity malt and a nice crisp bitterness that carries into a good finish. Very pleasant IPA with plenty of hop flavour but not overly bitter.

Good Aussie stuff. I haven’t had one for a while. Nice and pungent, with citrus and grassy notes, of course very bitter grapefruits on the aroma and flavour, but also some old stile IPA stone fruitiness. Lovely and resinous on the palate. They should have those on the airline lounges, not Cascade!

Looks good. Good strong flavor but balanced. Bit of gas, minimal head but texture was nice. Delicious you’d have a few and be happy

Surprised on the upside in a big way. Very flavour packed and almost powerfully sweet, quite impressive for a 7% beer. Yep a bit slutty but stacks of fun.

bottle from plonk. Pours amber with thin head. good hop aroma. slightly sweet up front for an ipa, in a way I like, with moderately bitter finish and alcohol on the finish. Lots of hop flavour. A nice IPA.
