No. Not going to waste the calories to finish this. Looks like cream soda with a nice head. That is not a bad thing. Aroma is stale unripe citrus. Taste is just bad. It is bitter without any balance. I could drink this, but why?

Pours a burnt orange, or light coppery color with a nice off white head. A little citrus aroma, and the flavor has a nice citrusy bitter bite. Not bad.

This beer tastes good, just doesn’t taste anything like an IPA. The hops are very muted in the nose and flavor. Does have an attractive maltiness to it though.

Dark amber. Aroma is grass and citrus. Flavors of pine and grapefruit. A little thin and oily.
OK IPA. Easy drinking.

Not much aroma but a clean crisp IPA. It is well priced. It leaves a good bitter after taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark slightly hazy gold orange with some foamy white head that quickly dissapates. Aroma nice amount of citrus. Flavor bitter off the front then becomes a bit metallic and dry in the center and a bitter piney finish. Could use a bit more balance. Lack the sweater body that some great ipas have. Overall though not bad.

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden amber color with a one finger head and good lacing. Aroma of resiny pine, citrus, floral, semi sweet malt. Taste had a moderate piney hop kick up front with a bland malty aftertaste.

355ml bottle from Woolworth’s into a handled pint glass on 9/3/13. Pours clear copper with even a slightly orange hue and a small white head. Unusually for an IPA the aroma is predominantly a malty caramel with only a slight hop profile. There’s some balance between the hops and malt but it’s really a bland flavour for 6.3% ABV and 60 IBUs with only moderate bitterness on the finish. Pretty average IPA but drinkable and well priced by Australian standards.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a golden colour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, citrus fruits with some pine. Taste is light to medium sweetness leading to a medium bitter finish. Pretty decent, I thought; surprised to see it rated so low.
