Bottle. Pours a hazy light golden colour. Aroma. can smell some nice passionfruit flavours. Taste. can mainly taste Pine, Mango and Passionfruits. Overall. a nice beer, but i feel as though the pine flavours mask the other fruity flavours too much for my liking, but none the less still better then most beers out there.

Nickls (2166) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - DEC 22, 2015
Tap, (Grain Store Newcastle, NSW 2013). Lots of passion fruit and slight pine in the aroma, with citrusy hops featuring in both the flavor and aroma. Mineral maltiness and a touch of berries as well. Softer almost medium body. I thought this was really good.

GothGargoyle (1949) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2015
Golden amber with a good pale head. Aroma is sweet citrus peel, toffee, subtle hint of pine and honey. Light-medium bodied, starts slightly sweet on the palate with a great lightly bitter citrusy hop balance. Taste is toffee, candied orange peel, hint of pine. Nice

Pointclick (35) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 10, 2015
not much of a lasting head, slightly cloudy hoppy smelling and sweet beer. it does smell very good. bang bang with the hops a good hit, citrus notes that sort of do mellow it out. easy to get a hold of for such a great beer at price. a very good go to. i still do prefer iipa by pirate life from SA

CervezaMe (5) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 6, 2015 does not count
Aroma is the stand out. Which is what I was expecting given the reputation. Not a lot of hop bitterness which makes it drinkable.

Tropical hop notes, medium light biscuit malt body. Amber offwhite white lace. Easy drink, quite sessionable.

DavidAust (145) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 4, 2015
Perfectly balanced. Huge nose and aptly named, this is all about the hops. Do I smell Christmas? or at least pine trees and citrus. Crisp clean white foam over a golden orange body. Crisp clean and so full of flavour. Super refreshing. Can still taste a lingering finish for quite some time after each sip. One of the best IPA I’ve had and certainly the best IPA by an Australian brewery. Wrap your laughing gear around one of these and you won’t be disappointed. Definitely going on the Christmas beer menu (remembering Australia is hot that time of year).

bytemesis (5557) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 28, 2015
Bottle thanks to Aaron! Pours clear pale amber, small off white head, decent lacing.. Aroma is indeed pine, grapefruit. Flavor is light sweet and medium bitter. Medium body. Pretty standard IPA fare, but solid for sure.

On tap at Keg & Brew, Sydney on 15th September 2015. Hazy amber with shallow off-white foam and full lacing. Intense tangerine citrus aroma. Sweet berry fruits and tangerine citrus in-mouth. Citric hops turn grassy in the finish. A zingy mouthfeel and medium body.
