Bottle from Mane Liquor. Don't normally do Belgians, but wow! Super fruity/peachy nose with heavy bubblegum aroma. Delicious combination of funky Belgian flavours delivered through an IPA, hops driving flavours and bitterness. Really clever beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 7.6%.ABV Just hazy amber with an inch of off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, peach, dough and yep bubblegum. Creamy mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. Sweet with loads of fruit and some dough. Citrus cuts through and the finish is bitter and resiny with a little pepper and vanilla. Tasty, well balanced, very dangerously drinkable. Delivers.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught @ Feral Brewing Company, Baskerville.
First beer of the day and easily the highlight. Produced up a sunny orange copper. Radiant, with a tight bead and sticky, dense white pad atop. Whole hop nose is piney, camphorous and citric with a bitter orange and grapefruit edge and sweet inklings of Hubba Bubba™ bubblegum and Starburst™ fruit chews. Belgian yeast and notes of rock candi come through up front giving it a supple sweetness before all hops carry it into the swallow. Really holds up well as it warms, fresh, tangy and oozing with tropical fruit esters. Moderate bitterness on the peak sees floral, zingy, rose petal musk and pinewood come through before a fruity, Belgian yeast blend in the swallow. Holds the alcohol scarily at bay; creeps up with its paws out. Malt backbone not to be forgotten as its firm and well rounded in mouthfeel. Deadly sessionable stuff that even had my partner hooked. Another bloody good ale from Feral!

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2013 Tap at feral. Wow this awesome. Nose full of citrus fruits and spice. Taste blends the citrus and spices well together. Bubblegum comes through in the taste almost like hubba bubba!! Tropical fruits and a nice malt backing finishes it off. Pretty easy on the palate too good sharp bitterness. 8.5% alc hidden well. Great beer feral rarely disappoint.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 26, 2013 Tap at Feral. Looks exactly like their rye ipa, copper with lots of lacing and dense white head. Bubblegum and citrus swamp the nose giving it quite a sweet and fruity aroma to it. Loads of tropical fruits and a nice touch of belgian yeast in the taste. Dominated by tropical and citric fruits with a hint of spice and pepper throughout. Sweet bitter finish with soft and spritzy carbonation. Bloody fantastic. Bottle is not quite as good as it was on tap. Still great but more Belgiun focus rather than huge hops

This is a great beer, on tap at the local taphouse. Appearance in the tulip glass is great. Nice dark amber with thin head and fine bead. The aroma is as one would expect, but where it really stands out is in the flavor department, initial apricot and orange elements transition to a great long bitter finish. The ability to deliver such a strong 7+% beer with such thickness but no acridity is impressive. Great stuff indeed

Tried on tap at Feral. Solid white head, rings of lacing on a golden body. Came across a little sweet to me, also resinous with a bit of pepper in the aftertaste. Belgian ipa.
