330ml bottle. Poured a lively golden amber with a lasting, soapy-lace-leaving and frothy one-finger beige head. Aromas of mango, tangerine and apricot, which translate into its flavours coupled with a malty bread and biscuit weight in the mid-palate. Medium body with firm textures and a drying palate carbonation. Finishes with a linger of pithy bitter marmalade and grapefruit. Flavourful, balanced sessionable despite its modest strength.

The first thing that hits is the intense smell of fresh buds I kid you not. Nice skanky bitterness on finish, not that much body but a lovely beer. Too expensive though, vale ipa better bang for buck so I will still go for that instead but not quite the intense hops of Feral but pretty close, just can’t justify the price of this one but glad I tried it.

Bottle from Plonk. Hazy dark gold/amber, solid white head, lots of citrus and pine, sweet caramel, high bitterness, medium sweetness, long resiney bitter finish. Nice, but not as good as I remember a few years back.

It pours a murky golden, cream thin head that lasts. Has a citrus aroma, malt sweetness. It’s surprisingly creamy in the mouth and not as bitter as I’d expected, very easy to drink.

My fav beer of all time. Lovely nose, palate and finish. A delight to drink, especially in the warmer climes.

At the beach in Palm Cove, Queensland, AUS. Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Fruity hop nose. Flavors of tropical fruits, orange and some pine resin notes. Complex and tasty. Smooth, slightly bitter finish.

Barwa: bursztynowa, klarowna. Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, początkowo obfita, ale dość szybko opadająca. Aromat: słodowo chmielowy (cytrusy, mango) i niewielka nuta alkoholowa. Przyjemny, ale bardziej zbliżony do imperiala niż zwykłej IPA. Smak: goryczka ze słodową kontrą, niestety trochę za mało ciała. Jedno z niewielu australijskich piw, jakie miałem do tej pory okazję próbować, a dostałem je od znajomych wracających z urlopu. Jest to całkiem przyzwoita IPA, która jednak niczym nie zaskakuje i nie powala.

Very good IPA for Australia - undoubtedly the best IPA Australia has to offer at the moment. Fruity aroma, clean taste and slightly bitter aftertaste. Great brew.

This is a tasty beer for a pale ale. It’s hoppy as you would expect so it’s a bit fruity for my liking

Wow, a masterpiece! Incredibly well done!! Poured at a good temperature with a thick, foamy, long lasting, off-white head and some lace. Color is a clear amber with bubble trails. Aroma is fresh hops with pine and grapefruit but not massively along with malt and caramel. Flavor’s like nose, with malt sweet, hop bitter, carbonic tang all in harmony. Plus no off qualities. Body/carbonation are perfect. Finish is like flavor, with an average taper, super easy to drink. Have to get more!!
