On tap at The Local Taphouse. Had this beer a few months back... wish I could remember anything about it apart from how deliciously flavoursome it was, and what a lovely coherent liquid tale it told in my mouth. Delish.

Copper pour with huge off white head. Nice nose of pine and citrus. Flavor is a bit chalky and muddled with malt, but nice punch of citrus.

A great beer. Has all the elements of a great (light) IPA. Reminds me of some strong Californian Pale Ales. Citrus and pine. Moderate bitterness. Very drinkable.

neongolden (1254) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2016
(330ml bottle from BWS Surfers Paradise) Pours clear pale copper with an average white head and no lace. Aroma is pine-forward hops up front with citrus and peach in support, a decently solid malt backbone with light caramel and biscuits. Pretty fresh pine needle and grapefruit peel hop flavours, some floral qualities and a moderately strong malt base with a bit of biscuit and moderate caramel sweetness. Finish is dry with moderate pine resin bitterness. Medium bodied and slightly sticky with average carbonation. Nothing revelatory maybe, but quite a very solid IPA compared to the typical selection at a BWS store.

Ivanhoe Manly. This is decent, nothing more. Basically a replica of the sort of US IPA folk got excited about 15-20 years ago. Hazy amber colour, decent off white head. Hoppy, citrusy aroma. Medium body, with again, a lot of citrus (little bit tropical fruit, some lemon). Quite hoppy as expected and the finish is hops dominated and reasonably dry. Some bitterness, not much maltiness. Pleasant and drinkable and a good go to when faced with Hahn Superdry, but ultimately not a lot going on.

Citrus and pine on the nose, medium body. Nice warming and mild sweetness in the finish. Some nice subtle resiny character left in the mouth. What’d you hope for from a quality session ipa

Bottle. Pours a copper colour with a white head. Aromas of pine and stonefruit really hit me. There is a lovely bitterness with a strong malt backbone. The flavour stays in your mouth well after each sip. Balance is perfect. This is the best Australian IPA I’ve had, a strong household favourite and we can’t wait to try it on tap sometime. Excellent, well done.

mcberko (14659) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2016
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
