Muggus69 (1171) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2013
330mL bottle BB 29/10/13 Mid-honey gold body, decent clarity, small white head of medium density. Aroma of moderate intensity; piney and woody spices from hops, a touch of overly ripe/dried stonefruit melds with lightly toasted cereal and honeyed malt character. Medium body with lively carbonation. Slightly oily texture. A light upfront toasty maltiness fades away to dried fruit and woody hops. Moderate-to-high bitterness, some harshness, flavour drops away on the finish, lingering minerality. An entry level American IPA. There’s plenty of APA’s out there that blow this out of the water...

LesArgen (200) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2013
Aromas of jam tart, citrus, apple and a little smoke waft up from the glass, making for a pleasant smell. The palate is quite peppery with malt and a little grapefruit. It stops a bit short but is a nice beer for a warm day, and a good option if you find yourself stuck at a major liquor chain.

imaragingbull (570) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 11, 2013
Bottle. Pours near clear light hazed deep orange gold with tight light off white head. Aromas of sweet malts; toffee, hints of pitted fruit. Hop aromas are earthy, lightly fruity (apricot) and lightly floral. A touch grassy and vegetal. Medium light body, lightly bitter, mainly overshadowed by a sweet malt toffee presence. Finishing a sweet, bitter and lightly crisp. Average aussie attempt at an english style IPA. The malt shovel version is a touch better.
