5/XII/13 - 33cl bottle @ home - BB: n/a (2013-1117) Thanks to Bo for transporting the bottle!
Little hazy orange beer, aery off-white head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very piny, citrus, bit sweet, ripe fruits, bit soapy. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: very lovely citrus flavours, piny, sweet ripe fruits, nice bitterness, some grapefruit. Aftertaste: very fruity, piny hops as well, bit grassy, citrus, some grapefruit. Seriously, this is a very lovely beer!

Oh so good. Big bodied with citrus flavour hit followed by the long lingering hops. Looks great in the glass, with every mouthful grabbing your attention and reminding you that your drinking a great beer.

Pours a great deep gold but surprisingly almost no head. Smells of grapefruit, honey and pine needles. Taste of grapefruit, pine nuts, hint of watermelon. I'm not generally a big fan of IPAs but this isn't bad at all.

A delicious IPA full of passionfruity citrussy deliciousness. Easily the best Oz IPA I’ve had.

Wow. So much complexity in the flavours and aromas here. Pours a cloudy brown with a white foamy head. Immediately notice the strong citrus aromas. This is followed by citrus and pine flavours with a hint of grapefruit. A big hop hit to finish. Possibly the country’s best IPA

A pretty good IPA overall with the strengths beings it wonderful hoppy aromas. There is plenty of bitterness but the carbonation out of a bottle distracts from flavours. A good highly rated IPA but still only my 3rd favourite.

Easily Australia’s best IPA, huge tropical fresh hop aroma with grapefruit, pine and citrus beaming through. One of the only IPAs in Australia not to taste like you have chewed on the outer packaging. Nice body rounded sweetness overall a wold class IPA

UPDATED: APR 29, 2014 Strong fruity aroma, grapefruit and citrus flavours and a lasting creamy head. A very interesting beer, give it a try.

Tasty IPA but as with all IPAs your limited to only one or 2, its a fruity flavor with a hint of grapefruit at the back of the palate.
