COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Double IPA weighing in at 113 IBU (a measure of bitterness, with the human palate supposedly unable to distinguish anything too much higher than 100).
It’s packed with a tonne of new world hops – Citra, Cascade, Galaxy, Chinook, Simcoe and Motueka – and delivers the sort of tropical fruit explosion that such a hopstravaganza would suggest!

Davros (2408) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 17, 2015
Pours amber with a large head. Nose shows pine, resinous hops, lychee and massive sweet clean malt. Flavours include lots of tropical fruit and fruit confectionery along with heap more of the crystal malt and some booze.

Shark_Pants (469) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 16, 2015
330ml bottle from Barny’s. Cloudy orange with small head that very quickly recedes to a film. Nose is full of tropical fruits, particularly mango, papaya/paw paw and passionfruit. Taste has similar flavours plus grapefruit and tangerine and is sweet to begin with but transitions to a nice crisp hop bitterness. Booze is quite noticeable. Medium body helps the sweetness avoid becoming too cloying, as can be the case with some DIPAs. Pretty good effort.

ShaneJ (748) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle from Plonk (May 2014). Slightly hazy mid-amber, minimal off-white head, massive fruity aroma, peach, pineapple, apricot, passionfruit, quite sweet but piney/citrusy hops dominate the sweetness, medium body, slick texture, sticky, resiney bitter finish. Nice.

redknob (36) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2014
Fruity, hoppy, yet unremarkable. Sweetness seems to hide the bitterness and ends up tasting like Juicy Fruit gum.

bmeup (576) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - SEP 4, 2014
Big time hop bomb that actually works and is very drinkable. Tropical fruit bowl if you like, i do!

KeefOz (1153) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2014
BB 01Apr2015. Poured a clouded amber colour with a few millimetres of off-white foamy head that diminished quickly and laced poorly. Carbonation high and coarse. Aroma dominated by sweet floral and citrus hops - nice. Taste quite sweet followed by moderate level of hops bitterness; alcohol well hidden. Light body. Sweet and bitter finish. Nice!

ComradeK (1071) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2014
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium amber, with a moderate off-white head, which lasts fairly well and leaves reasonable lacing. Resin, grapefruit and tropical hops mix with a little caramel malt in the aroma. Strong resin and kiwifruit hops up front give way to a reasonably weighty caramel malt body, with grapefruit and mild melon hops in the finish. A pretty decent Australian DIPA.

stoutnick (752) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2014
Light golden lemon colour. Aroma is hops and mild fruit. Taste is big lemon citrus bitterness. Lingering bite. Nice double IPA.

mkel07 (4343) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 12, 2014
On tap at Archive Beer Boutique 020314. Powerful hop flavour fills the mouth with resinous citrus and floral hops. Looks great and tastes great.

Sevenlee (1572) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAY 3, 2014
Pours a hazy amber colour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, citrus, pine, floral notes and plenty of hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a big bitter finish. I was quite impressed by this one.
