Dervock (505) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle - golden pour with a frothy white head? Lots of resin and citrus aroma? Grapefruit and a dry lingering bitterness. Nice beer

Oakes (12789) - 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.

Feral_Hop_Hog (18) - - SEP 7, 2013
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

orange_3084 (124) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 26, 2013
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.

Kurtos (103) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2013
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.

gnoff (7979) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2013
Draught as one of five 90 ml samples in my paddle, at The Local Taphouse, Sydney, on July 10, 2013.
Clear amber to copper color, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy, red berries, mango, passion fruit scent. Hoppy, berry, fruity, fresh taste. Medium to smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Very nice!

Nice drop well balanced, nice dark amber colour, head doesn’t last long, has sweet hop flavours with a mild citrus finish and soft bitterness.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2014 An Aussie benchmark of the style that lives up to expectations. Perfectly balanced with a deliciously fruity taste.

Smells very citrusy almost like pineapple juice. Taste is a hoppy bitter niceness with hints of citrus.
