Really fresh flavourful beer with a pleasant bitterness. There is a great pine needle and citrus aroma which is stated on description and this follows the whole way through. Great beer to clean the palate and liven up the mouth.

Golden pour, persistent and dense head.Heavy pine on the nose with some citrus. Big, hoppy flavour, with pine and tropical fruit at first and then maltiness, good bitter finish. Very much a session beer, probably my favorite at the moment

Bottle. Hazy gold amber body with a large dense off-white head. Strong citrusy-pine aroma and taste, with a sweetish bread-biscuity body. Light to medium bodied.

Aromas of citrus and pine needles followed by a well balanced bitterness with just the right amount of sweetness. Best IPA in da world brus

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2013 Tap at feral. One of my favorite ipas. Pour is golden with a fluffy white head. Lots of passion fruit and citrus in the aroma..almost jumps at you. Taste is like a tropical hoppy fruit juice with a dry bitterness rounding off the taste nicely. Goes down so easily. One of the best beers you could ever drink ticks all the boxes.

A-- Orange brown color with only a white film for head. Head retention was excellent and it left lacing all the way through drinking. Clear body and showed very little carbonation. Thought it was a bit cold when poured. S-- Pine, grapefruit and a bit of a floral orange lemon smell. Grapefruit and pine most dominant. T-- Once again grapefruit and pine. Very forward hoppy taste and pretty aggressive. A lot like US Western IPA’s. A nice change from the usual English style IPA’s that are available in Sydney. M-- Lower medium carbonated and a lot of oily citrus resin with this. Flavor is excellent and lasts a while. Not as much pine in the finish as had hoped, more lemon, orange and grapefruit centered. D-- Good replication of a US IPA.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2012 Best aroma evr. ACTUALLY smells like tropical fruit, particularly passionfruit. Other than that, just a very sessionable ipa, which is no small feat. Goes down a treat with the hyde park hotel?s 15dollar wings on a thursday

Awesome beer, great long lasting malt sweetness, hops are endless. Had a big session on this the only reason I stopped , I was full, could keep drinking all night. Balenced bitterness.

330ml bottle. Pours a clear golden amber, with a small white head, which does not last all that well, but does leave decent lacing. Pine needles and a faint hint of resin sit over a blend of caramel and white bread malt on the nose. Pine needle and lime hops up front give way to a mix of white bread and pizza crust malt notes. There is a touch of pine resin in the finish and a slight lime and pine aftertaste. With so many IPAs out there to choose from, this beer just doesn’t quite cut it. It isn’t too bad, but it lacks serious hops presence, and is let down by a light and lager-ish body.

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2013 Bottle. This beer has grown on me, it has a good hop presence - perhaps a little too much towards the pine needles than the citrus - and a lovely lingering finish. It doesn’t score higher because it is a long way off some of the really good local IPAs on offer esp NZ ones.
