4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
It pours a hazy orange with a head that rapidly disappears leaving a ring around the edges resulting in some minor lacing. The aroma is quite typical of a modern American Pale Ale with lots of citrus, pine and tropical fruits all warring for your attention. The flavour is beautifully balanced with the sweet citrus fruits, pine needles and tropical fruits backed up by a solid malt base. The after taste is pine resins, citrus fruit and a bitterness that lingers long enough to let you appreciate it but not long enough to get annoying. The mouth feel is silky with a bit of hop resin that lingers in the cheeks.

I’ve had this in bottles and on tap. I highly recommend this on tap. Had it at Hotel Warrnambool. My beer of choice.

Pours a cloudy coppery colour with a small white head. Intensely peach and mango in the aroma, love the smell! Taste is peaches and passionfruit, which trancends over to a long grapy finish with just the right amount of bitterness. Refreshing palate, soft carbonation and a medium body. This is a really good IPA, it really took me by supprise.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at SQUE Rotisserie & Alehouse, Singapore
Hazy amber color, frothy head. The aroma is a bit fruity and malty. The malt and caramel flavor is a bit stale, moderate residual sweetness, correct bitterness, with hop fruits and resins in small quantities; a bit like American IPAs from the 90’s.

Thick head. Pine needle aroma. Nice hoppy flavor without being overpowering until the end as with most ipa's.

What is an IPA I hear you ask? Well crack open a feral hop hog and step into the wonders of a modern american IPA. Fruity aroma, rich white head, crisp pine hops and a sweet malt spine. A perfect gateway IPA and a solid ’go to’ beer. Would drink time and time again.

Little hazy orange beer, aery off-white head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very piny, citrus, bit sweet, ripe fruits, bit soapy. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: very lovely citrus flavours, piny, sweet ripe fruits, nice bitterness, some grapefruit. Aftertaste: very fruity, piny hops as well, bit grassy, citrus, some grapefruit. Seriously, this is a very lovely beer!
