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!

330mL bottle, pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of piney hops upfront backed by biscuity malt. Flavour is very fresh, with loads of fresh piney hops upfront with just enough dry biscuity malt to back. Loads of fresh piney hops dominate this one. Excellent.

330 ml bottle from Grand Central Cellars in Brisbane. Pours with relative little head. Very floral aroma. Taste of citrus and pine. Crisp finish. Overall, a very nice IPA that I would be happy to have again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A great, everyday Aussie pale ale. Nicely balanced hops to malt without overpowering on the IBUs.

Feral... More like ferociously delicious. It's kind of like eating a tropical flower. It's spectacular. I've had a blocked nose since early childhood so I can't smell it but boy oh boy I can taste it. Magnificent! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (2272) - 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

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

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.

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).
