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 (12038) - 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

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2014 This used to get a perfect score from me but I reckon it’s been dumbed down recently - less hops-in-your-face, less bitter, seems more malt forward.... That’s a pity because it was a truly amazing brew once upon a time.

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.

A well balance brew with plenty of flavour. A complex mid palate with citrus and powerful hops flavours that provide a lingering finish.

kidmartinek (3741) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Light copper color. White head. Modest bitter and citrusy nose. Taste is true to the style, bitter piny and subdued malt. Not over the top. Just.very good.

M_Sack (403) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2013
Hazy gold with a slightly frothy head. Explosion of mango, passionfruit, pineapple and strawberry aromas. Tropical fruit flavours dominate although there is a very subtle malt back note. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

stoutnick (690) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 28, 2013
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.
