Such an incredibly well baanced beer. Impressive palate of full bodied hop but a delightful floral and fruity journey across the tongue. It has won draught beer awards 3 years in a row in Australia. This is actually my favourite beer for the last year. I couldn’t recommend higher

(Bottle) Pours clear Amber with a white head that fades. Unique aroma of hops with citrus, grass and straw scents; seriously, this beer smells like a barn and is aptly named! Medium bodied with slick mouthfeel and medium/lively carbonation. Taste is light sweet medium bitter with citrus and some slight malavours coming through. This beer grew on me as I drank it but Judging by other reviews I think it may be better on tap.

AIPA? iPA? Who cares? This is a rad beer! Has all the fruity punch in the face you want up front. Nothing over the top just a balanced sessionable legend of a local beer

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2014 Smooth, gentle and perfect bitterness. Fruity hints and the balls of a man?s beer. Choice.

A hop forward IPA that can match it with the American produced IPAs. Lovely citrus aroma, appropriate bitter finish. One of the best Australian IPAs.

One of my favorites. Fresh off tap at the brewery is the best place to try it. Bottled is ok if you can find it fresh, but not the same. Pours dark amber with a large off white head. Quite cloudy, massive hoppy aroma, strong pine needle and citrus hop hit followed by a complex caramel malt and long bitter finish. If you are visiting Perth, a trip to this brewery is a must.

Bottle, Orange pale colour pours a fluffy smallish head. Fruity aroma,medium body. starts off with a sweet taste then hits you with an explosion of fruity and bitteness of intense hops, delicious beer ,one of my favorite.

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - AUG 20, 2014
Orange/copper with a white head. Aroma is chock full of citrus and pine hops, a decent helping of caramel malt. Medium body that has a smooth carbonation level. Flavor lacks the punch that the aroma has, but is still quite nice. Sweet malts, pine, candied citrus fruit. A very enjoyable IPA.

gyllenbock (4956) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle bought in Brisbane, August 2014. A bit hazy golden/orange with a small white head. Aroma of hops, grass and some grapefruit. Similar taste, also some mango. The finish was medium bitter. A descent one.
