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.

Golden colour, aromas of passion fruit and lychees, low carbonation, good lacing, very easy to drink, my knees are wobbling slightly from drinking too fast, what an amazing beer, well done feral

A standout beer for me. Was taken back by this - found it at a BWS (large chain) and so expected a mediocrity to it that you so often find with other brands. This is different. This is out there with fruity flavour profile and good hop hit - I love this beer as it really is a treat by itself. I normally pair my pair with a good meal,or chocolate. Not this - this stands by itself and I wouldnt want anything messing with it. To me the passionfruit flavour dominates on this - it could be a touch more malted - but have noticed this comes and goes in batches.

I love this beer. Aroma and taste of fruit punch bowl with the right amount of malt. Not a strong IPA. Very drinkable.

[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]

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 (1503) - 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.
