magpieken (100) - - MAR 23, 2015
330ml bottle. Opaque pale to deep gold colour with a creamy off-white head which reduced to a thin layer and left only traces of lacing. Aroma of resin, pine, passionfruit and citrus. Nicely balanced mild sweetness and bitterness. Light to medium bodied, creamy yet sticky texture with a dry, pleasantly bitter finish that liners. A very decent IPA. 8.

anstei (153) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 4, 2015
330ml bottle from Warners At The Bay. Pours ambery yellow, little head. Strong pine nose, lots of hops and flowers. Good balance between hoppy bitterness and pine sweetness, even though both are clearly on the extreme side. Intense.

Always better on tap than in the bottle. Hoppiest american ipa that I have drunk so far, yet well balanced.

Marcus356 (3) - St Kilda East, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2015 does not count
As fresh as an example of a true american style india pale ale as we’re likely to get here in Australia, a little on the sweeter side but a perfectly sessionable IPA with loads of tropical fruit, malt, citrus and an addictive bitterness. served in spiegelau IPA glass at fridge temperature from bottle (gave it a roll first)

Two biases impacting on this rating. One, I’ve got an head cold. Secondly, I recall a fantastic visit to Feral Brewery with my family last year, so a positive cognitive impression. In fact, this beer smells like a garden @ a brewery, as long as that brewery has passionfruit vines & lemonade trees. Surprisingly the palate is not as biting as I expected; hops a plenty with a more rounded after. Nice residual bitterness to top off a great drinking experience. Really like this drop!

HoppingHop (15) - Gold Coast, AUSTRALIA - DEC 15, 2014
Been drinking this beer for quite a while. This one has never failed me for its hoppiness and firm-bodiness. As its second name suggests, being American IPA with lots of american hops, this has a rich pine and citrus providing a sensory input to your nasal cavity. Mild bitterness and dry finish also make this beer a very good one for IPA starters.
