Pyobon (994) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2011
Bottle. Clear gold with excellent white head. Lovely lemony flowery aroma with hints of passionfruit and grapefruit. Medium body nicely carbonated - a little more carbonated than I expected but not too much. The flavour is hop dominated from start to finish. It’s not overwhelmed by hops, but definitely dominated. At the start there are some fresher brighter (grapefruit?) flavours present and in the middle there is pleasant undercurrent of malt. Overall, it’s a full on, but not brutally, hoppy IPA in the US style. It’s a good example of this style, and enjoyable, but for my preference, there’s too much hoppy bitterness.

bmeup (536) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - APR 3, 2011
4 pack of 330ml bottles. Pours light amber with a dense head that falls with good lacing. Great wiff of piney, citrus and floral hops. Sweet, almost soft malt underlays a resinous dry finish of a pretty darn good beer.

Papsoe (25079) - Lyserødovre, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2011
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of bluebetty. Clear golden with an off-white head. Fresh citrusy nose - almost perfumy. Medium body, a little sweet fruitiness and again lots of fresh citrus. Dry and hoppy finish. Very decent - certainly has the hops, but perhaps not much more than an APA. 150311

maneliquor (3317) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 31, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2014 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a hazy golden orange with a medium, slightly off white head. Aromas of fresh fruits, hops, citrus and a little bit of dank. On the sweeter side of things for sure. An almost oily, sort of resinous mouth feel. Taste is a fair bit different to the aroma. Mainly a big hit of piney hop resin in there giving way to a big bitter finish that lingers and lingers. Has a rather inviting sweet malt backbone throughout the beer and lots of over ripe fruits that come into play. Very enjoyable. An amazing all rounded IPA. For the price, it’s a go to beer for the weekends
