Very good IPA for Australia - undoubtedly the best IPA Australia has to offer at the moment. Fruity aroma, clean taste and slightly bitter aftertaste. Great brew.

Wow, a masterpiece! Incredibly well done!! Poured at a good temperature with a thick, foamy, long lasting, off-white head and some lace. Color is a clear amber with bubble trails. Aroma is fresh hops with pine and grapefruit but not massively along with malt and caramel. Flavorís like nose, with malt sweet, hop bitter, carbonic tang all in harmony. Plus no off qualities. Body/carbonation are perfect. Finish is like flavor, with an average taper, super easy to drink. Have to get more!!

marom92 (47) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 5, 2014
330ml Bottle. A rich orange colour beer with a tint of amber. Thin white head, dissipates quickly. Stone fruit aroma, with lots of citrus and pine. Smooth citrusy flavour with a roasted caramel malt character and a rounded bitterness. Hints of peach in the aftertaste. Delicious and straight forward IPA

Clear golden red, small white head. Strong floral aroma. Big thick hops kick with a fruity background. Nice beer - much enjoyed.

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.

Bathory (458) - Kverneland, NORWAY - JAN 8, 2014
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.

Bottle at home. Pours cloudy orange golden with an off white head. Aroma of nettles, weedy hops, pine and some citrus. Flavor is light sweet and over moderate bitter. Medium bodied with light carbonation.
