4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A brew to liven up your nostrils, sweet and flowery that turns to a rust and honey. Not as bitter as I expected, the bitterness lingers late and tingles. So much flavour. Beautifully well rounded, an umami of hops, malt, pepper, berries. This is a great beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The appearance is a thick, pillowy head. Sits atop a hazy, glowing orange. Carbonation looks like bats escaping a cave. Looks like a goddamn BEER. A really nice flowery hop in the first sniff. Sweetish pine-hop. Some tangy pale malt, with a small hint of citrus fruit. The flowery estery hop is the signature flavor. The pale malt shows up fashionably late. The malt has hints of tobacco and raisin. The feel is creamy and chewy, moreso with the temperature rising. Thick and foamy. IT’s a terrific, flowery IPA. Not overwhelming but really nice. A summery (!) IPA

Bottle from Dan Murphy’s Melbourne CBD. Well balanced, and with a long mouthfeel. Aromas of caramel, herbs, and hints of alcohol. Taste is sweet and bitter, with average length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

bottle. Poured clear deep amber with a thin creamy white head. Aroma is full of citrus hops. Medium body, creamy carbonation with a slight astringent mouthfeel at the end. Lighter malts, grainy with herbal hop flavours throughout, lemongrass and pine notes. A nice drinkable IPA.

Found this one bottled in Sycamore, Illinois. This is a very fine IPA, especially considering it’s inexpensive. Dark, clear reddish brown pour with a nice floral nose, some citrus in the taste. Lots of complexity. Finished strong but clean. I’m impressed.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a five+ finger white head that fades to a lumpy layer leaving a good lace. Nice crystal clear amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Slight hoppy nose. Flavor is almost sweet piney hops. Slight hoppy finish. Here’s an IPA that doesn’t blow you away with the hops. $1.08 for a 12oz bottle from Capitol Convenience Concord, NH.

Courtesy of markwise. It pours pure deep copper with tan head. The aroma is a pleasing firm earthy hoppiness running into a bit of spicy and mild floral hops as well as sweet malts. The taste has spicy hops, nice yummy earthiness, a touch of roasted malts and then some spicy black licorice. I get mild floral hops and sweet malt notes around the edges. Nice earthy hop forward English style IPA.

Big hop aroma. A much better IPA than I was expecting from this brewery. Hops are pleasant up front but somewhat astringent in the finish. Overall a pretty decent representative of the style.
