A pretty good IPA overall with the strengths beings it wonderful hoppy aromas. There is plenty of bitterness but the carbonation out of a bottle distracts from flavours. A good highly rated IPA but still only my 3rd favourite.

Easily Australia’s best IPA, huge tropical fresh hop aroma with grapefruit, pine and citrus beaming through. One of the only IPAs in Australia not to taste like you have chewed on the outer packaging. Nice body rounded sweetness overall a wold class IPA

UPDATED: APR 29, 2014 Strong fruity aroma, grapefruit and citrus flavours and a lasting creamy head. A very interesting beer, give it a try.

Tasty IPA but as with all IPAs your limited to only one or 2, its a fruity flavor with a hint of grapefruit at the back of the palate.

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

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Bottle picked up at The Oak Barrel in Sydney
Cloudy golden with a medium sized white head and good lacing. Aroma of floral, caramel and grapefruit. Flavors of caramel, citrus and piney
Ok. I also had this at The Australian Hotel later in the week.

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.
