UPDATED: JUL 24, 2013 Cloudy peach. Aroma is wonderful fruit smells. So tropical. Taste is a strange mixture of hop bitterness and mild fruit - maybe needs a touch more sweetness for me. Finish also falls away far too quickly. Overall, a decent sessional IPA, but not a go-to for me.

Your traditional Hop fuelled beast has a great nose and taste lingers accordingly. It pours beautifully. Just a bloody good beer

Very nice West Coast style IPA while a little more gentle on the bitterness than is typical. Juicy aroma. Perfect balance between citrus and malt notes in the flavour. One of the nicest grapefruit aftertastes I’ve had in a heavily hopped beer. Good from the bottle, even better on tap.

Pours a cloudy amber with a big foamy long lasting white head. Lots of grapefruit and pine smell from the hops. Taste loads of citrus/grapefruit and spicy hops up front followed by slight biscuity notes from the malt. Ends dry and very hoppy, not overly bitter. Love this beer

This is what Western Australian craft beer is all about! The best WA beer by far. Hoppy goodness on the nose, slightly sweet with all the pine needle, stone fruit flavours you would want, ends with a perfect balance of good strong bitterness that an American IPA should have. These guys at Feral Brewing know their beers!

From 330 ml bottle, it pours a deep amber with a thin but lasting white head. Lots of hops on the nose, with aromas of passionfruit, grapefruit and lime coming through. The taste is more tropical fruit with a solid biscuit malt backing that gives way to more subdued flavours of kemon, vanilla and a bit of spice. Not as bitter as I was expecting, but a refined Aussie-style IPA all the same.

Pour is cloudy amber with white head. Nice aroma with hints of pine. Good flavor with initial sweetness moving to stone fruit followed with a long bitter finish.
