[330ml bottle, courtesy of Sevare] Clear golden beer, with a thin white lacing. Soft, sweet, floral aroma. Grassy on the palate at first, slightly citric and lemony, with an increasingly dry, bitter finish. Good stuff [21062013]

Niksko (263) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 1, 2013
Light effervescent golden orange. One finger white head that fades to a cap. Nose is lovely and tropical, with pineapple, orange, passionfruit and a slight amount of pine. Wow! Beautifully complex flavour. Some tropical fruits on the mid palate with pineapple and passionfruit. This is followed by a refreshing and juicy citrus hop bitterness. The finish is bitter but with some great biscuity and toasted flavours and some more subtle pine and citrus. A really wonderful beer. Go and drink this now.

330ml bottle. The undisputed champion of Australian IPAs, definitely one of my favourites. Won many awards this beer and rightly so. Tastes of fruits with citrus and pine and oh so easy to drink. Great beer.

danlo (899) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours an orangey amber colour, foamy off-white head leaving some lacing and aroma of mango, passionfruit, orange hoppy. Taste is juicy tropical fruits & sweet floral orangey citrus nicely balanced against a malt caramel backbone, with some hop resin bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry bitter finish. Very drinkable IPA.

floydian1 (826) - FNQ, Australia, - JUN 22, 2013
Draught in Sydney. Probably the best American style IPA brewed in Australia. Robust hop bitterness but not show-offy. Grapefruits, apricots, oranges and pine needles on the nose. Silky smooth biscuity malt backbone. Looks lovely in the glass with dark amber body and frothy off white head.

Bottle. Golden with white head. Resinous aroma with grapefruit. Taste is quite musty, citrus, grapefruit, earthy. Quite bitter. Smells better than it tastes

Koelschtrinker (9996) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 21, 2013
Blumig hopfiger Antrunk. Zum Mittelteil deutlich bitter, würzig malzig. Die Hopfigkeit bleibt auf hohem Niveau, wird aber von der Bitterkeit übertrupmft, die das Hopfenaroma zu dämpfen scheint. Zitrusartig, blumig, durch die starke Bitterkeit nicht ganz rund. Kräuterartiger Ausklang. 11/12/9/10/8/9

Been meaning to rate this for ages - I really love it! For me, the best hop driven Australian beer by miles. My house beer. So much pleasure in a glass. An Australian classic.

Vanz (189) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2013
Aroma: Strong citrus hops dominate the aroma. Appearance: Pale golden with thin white head. Taste: Heavy citrus hop flavour, slightly piny, pleasant malty aftertaste. Palate: Mild carbonation, very smooth in the mouth and a nice malty finish. Overall: Extremely drinkable IPA, very enjoyable hop flavours and grows on you the more you drink.
