Bottle - golden pour with a frothy white head? Lots of resin and citrus aroma? Grapefruit and a dry lingering bitterness. Nice beer

Hazy tan-amber, thin head. Aroma is piney, rich citrus, rosemary, sage. Taste is actually a bit green and yeasty. The hops are on point - rich, pithy, with citrus liveliness, but the malts don’t have a refined character.

Draught at The Norfolk, Fremantle. Unmistakable aroma of top shelf home grown marijuana. Mouthfeel zesty but not overbearing. Definite grapefruit on the palate with hints of pine and hops. Without a doubt one of Australia's best IPAs.

Pours golden orange colour with thin white head. Aroma of passionfruit, grapefruit and pine. Fairly light body, nicely crisp. Hop flavours come through on the tongue, with very mild sweetness from caramel malts gently supporting a bitterness that’s not particularly aggressive compared American versions of the IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy light golden colour.
Aroma. can smell some nice passionfruit flavours.
Taste. can mainly taste Pine, Mango and Passionfruits.
Overall. a nice beer, but i feel as though the pine flavours mask the other fruity flavours too much for my liking, but none the less still better then most beers out there.

Smells very citrusy almost like pineapple juice. Taste is a hoppy bitter niceness with hints of citrus.
