My fav beer of all time. Lovely nose, palate and finish. A delight to drink, especially in the warmer climes.

At the beach in Palm Cove, Queensland, AUS. Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Fruity hop nose. Flavors of tropical fruits, orange and some pine resin notes. Complex and tasty. Smooth, slightly bitter finish.

Barwa: bursztynowa, klarowna. Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, początkowo obfita, ale dość szybko opadająca. Aromat: słodowo chmielowy (cytrusy, mango) i niewielka nuta alkoholowa. Przyjemny, ale bardziej zbliżony do imperiala niż zwykłej IPA. Smak: goryczka ze słodową kontrą, niestety trochę za mało ciała. Jedno z niewielu australijskich piw, jakie miałem do tej pory okazję próbować, a dostałem je od znajomych wracających z urlopu. Jest to całkiem przyzwoita IPA, która jednak niczym nie zaskakuje i nie powala.

Very good IPA for Australia - undoubtedly the best IPA Australia has to offer at the moment. Fruity aroma, clean taste and slightly bitter aftertaste. Great brew.

This is a tasty beer for a pale ale. It’s hoppy as you would expect so it’s a bit fruity for my liking

Wow, a masterpiece! Incredibly well done!! Poured at a good temperature with a thick, foamy, long lasting, off-white head and some lace. Color is a clear amber with bubble trails. Aroma is fresh hops with pine and grapefruit but not massively along with malt and caramel. Flavor’s like nose, with malt sweet, hop bitter, carbonic tang all in harmony. Plus no off qualities. Body/carbonation are perfect. Finish is like flavor, with an average taper, super easy to drink. Have to get more!!

330ml Bottle. A rich orange colour beer with a tint of amber. Thin white head, dissipates quickly. Stone fruit aroma, with lots of citrus and pine. Smooth citrusy flavour with a roasted caramel malt character and a rounded bitterness. Hints of peach in the aftertaste. Delicious and straight forward IPA

Clear golden red, small white head. Strong floral aroma. Big thick hops kick with a fruity background. Nice beer - much enjoyed.

It pours a hazy orange with a head that rapidly disappears leaving a ring around the edges resulting in some minor lacing. The aroma is quite typical of a modern American Pale Ale with lots of citrus, pine and tropical fruits all warring for your attention. The flavour is beautifully balanced with the sweet citrus fruits, pine needles and tropical fruits backed up by a solid malt base. The after taste is pine resins, citrus fruit and a bitterness that lingers long enough to let you appreciate it but not long enough to get annoying. The mouth feel is silky with a bit of hop resin that lingers in the cheeks.

I’ve had this in bottles and on tap. I highly recommend this on tap. Had it at Hotel Warrnambool. My beer of choice.
