Bottle from mane liquor, drunk from tulip. Citrus, hoppy nose with hints of passionfruit. Nice bitter finish. Brilliant locally brewed IPA! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Could this be the best Aussie IPA? On tap at Harts Pub in Sydney. Both citrus and caramel in the nose, lots of tropical fruit in the taste, a taste that stays for a long time! I couldn’t get enough of this one!

Finally got around to rating it. A good ipa. This goes down a treat whilst being a fairly weak ipa. Quite a sessionable beer.

This beer never fails. Rating it this time off tap at The Great Northern Hotel in Carlton North, where it seems to be on semi-permanently.

In the bottle. Big and Hoppy yet still sessionable. Pine/Citrus aromas and tasty sweet/malt/pine/citrus taste. Very good balance. Thumbs up- great Aussie IPA.

Beautiful beer. Almost perfect balance of malt/hops. Fruit/pine combination, hoppy yet still deliciously drinkable. One the best IPA’s around.

Nice hop flavor and presence. Sugar at the end, with a long lasting finish which is enjoyable. Some nice raw notes as well.

On the tap at the Feral Brewery, Pours golden with a slight haze (normal for unfiltered) Aromal is floral but not over the top. The taste is all about the hop without losing balance. Deffinately the best beer in Oz.

From the bottle. Great aroma with a touch of passionfruit but like the taste, dominated by hops. Sweetish, smooth with a soft bitter aftertaste. Like a US style IPA but without the burning bitterness so makes it more sessionable. Really like this beer!

KeefOz (917) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - NOV 6, 2012
Poured with a 15+cm high (height of glass) off white foamy head that hung around for ages and eventually collapsed to a thin bubble line. Produced a liquid that was a translucent amber. Laced OK. Aroma strongly of hops. Taste of hops from start to finish. Medium body. Finish was fairly smooth, dry, and dominated by hops.
