A lovely IPA overall. Lacks a bit of body, but has a nice IPA finish. Lots of grapefruit in the aroma.

Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has strong notes of hops, grass, and lemons. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, straw, and lemons, leading to a bitter. The body is thin.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2012 I have had this beer in the bottle, in a growler/squealer and fresh from the brewery. Nice deep copper colour with an aroma of fresh pine and hops. The taste is grapefruit with grassy undertones plus hints of pine and caramel malt. Over all this is an amazing example of Australia beer a MUST try.

This beer was recommended to me by a booze swilling hobbit of a man. He told me it was a fantastic beer and he isnít one to bandy around such compliments. Unless he is drunk, which he was. Horrifically so. Still, I cracked this beer expecting perfection and boy, I wasnít disappointed. An American style IPA, itís big on the hoppity hops. Yes sir. It is a cloudy gold in colour with a head like a fluffy cloud made of awesome. The nose is all floral, citrus and unicorn musk. My first sip turned into a gulp. This is a beer I could drink a lot of. Itís smooth and fresh and chock full of hops. The hops doesnít dominate though. It sort of sits there in the background like a surly bouncer who has his eye on you because you are flagrantly disregarding the dress code by wearing a hat. He hasnít made a move because the CCTV cameras are rolling but as soon as you go to the toilet, heíll belt you one. Thereís a melon flavour on the front palate with a delicious mild bitter finish. A very refreshing beer. A beer I could easily guzzle litres of on one of those hot days when your gooch is clammy and yearning for relief.

Bottle. Pours gold with an off white head. Smells of melon, bitter citrus, some resiny hints. Tastes resiny and earthy with some citrussy hints on the finish. Some metallic hints as the beer warms.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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. Itís 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, itís a full on, but not brutally, hoppy IPA in the US style. Itís a good example of this style, and enjoyable, but for my preference, thereís too much hoppy bitterness.
