3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. It’s a clear, golden beer topped by a small, dense, off-white to light beige head. The aroma has pine cones, grapefruit, orange zest, some caramel maltyness and a little touch of alcohol. It’s full-bodied and with a pleasant carbonation level. A nice bitterness in the flavor, both initally and in the end. Pine cones, resins and orange zest. Lasting bitter finish. A pretty nice IPA, but I should probably have had it fresh. 140420

Solid, if unexceptional. All the right notes are there. But there’s nothing unique here that you haven’t had in a solid IPA elsewhere.

Lovely golden color with a white head. Lots of grapefruit, orange(bitter) and tropical fruits on the nose. The taste is of pine, citrus, malt sweetness and fruit cake. Great beer!

Aroma is pretty typical, I got a blast of hops but nowhere nearly the amount of tropical/citrus the bottle proclaimed. Taste was the same. Good but nothing special and felt it needed more citrus.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle brought back from Australia by my mom. Pours a dark orange with a half finger of white head. Aroma is loads of citrus. Taste is light bitter. Citrus and pine. Light bodied with a slick texture. Lively carbonation and a super long finish. Overall, great. Non-dated but I’m assuming not super fresh. Great beer regardless.

Clear copper beer with a huge white foam. Very nice fruity and fresh aroma, mango. Medium body. A unique and complex flavor of bitterness and sweetness. Dry and sweet at the same time. This is truly a great beer. Pure excellence and a great refreshing change to the genre.
