3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
BB 16.09.2016. Poured a hazy orangey amber colour with a one-finger off-white frothy head that retained OK and laced OK. Carbonation moderate to high with fine, soft bubbles. Aroma with strong pine and grapefruit plus a nice mellow sweet malt. Taste of resinous pine and grapefruit plus hints of malt but not overly bitter; alcohol well hidden. Medium body. Smooth and slightly dry with a lingering nice and pleasant bitterness on the finish.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(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.
