In the bottle. Big and Hoppy yet still sessionable. Pine/Citrus aromas and tasty sweet/malt/pine/citrus taste. Very good balance. Thumbs up- great Aussie IPA.

Beautiful beer. Almost perfect balance of malt/hops. Fruit/pine combination, hoppy yet still deliciously drinkable. One the best IPA’s around.

Nice hop flavor and presence. Sugar at the end, with a long lasting finish which is enjoyable. Some nice raw notes as well.

On the tap at the Feral Brewery, Pours golden with a slight haze (normal for unfiltered) Aromal is floral but not over the top. The taste is all about the hop without losing balance. Deffinately the best beer in Oz.

From the bottle. Great aroma with a touch of passionfruit but like the taste, dominated by hops. Sweetish, smooth with a soft bitter aftertaste. Like a US style IPA but without the burning bitterness so makes it more sessionable. Really like this beer!

Poured with a 15+cm high (height of glass) off white foamy head that hung around for ages and eventually collapsed to a thin bubble line. Produced a liquid that was a translucent amber. Laced OK. Aroma strongly of hops. Taste of hops from start to finish. Medium body. Finish was fairly smooth, dry, and dominated by hops.

I can see why everyone’s been raving about this, it’s a really good beer!!! (Objectively, of course.) Aroma is weak but presents an excellent subtle array of fruity and floral notes. Appearance is an opaque gold with a good white head. Taste is where it is all at! I get apricot, rockmelon (cantaloupe), a touch of orange, some other citrus and some floral notes (but i’m not good with flowers so couldn’t tell you which floral notes). It all finishes with an excellent bitterness, perfectly balanced with the flavours and the malts. Palate is riddled with the subtle hop bitter feel and sweet maltyness. Overall, an incredible IPA given it is not very strong. It manages to pull off the flavour profile of much bigger beers without feeling watered down. Very impressive and drinkable!

Bottle strong hoppy aroma deep amber in colors but this beer lacks something in the taste department over rated IMO

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
