Stew41 (1735) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - MAY 11, 2012
Unadventerous and somewhat dumb and sweet but I wouldn’t have expected much more from this brewer. Floral aromas and candied sweetness on the nose and the palate is a light touch with more of the same. Some bitterness evident albeit it very mild and a bit muddled; more PoW rather than clan new world.

Rangi (566) - NEW ZEALAND - APR 24, 2012
Amber poor with small head that disappears quickly. Nice rich biscuity malt flavours with slight pleasant hop notes. The palate is strong caramal malt. Realy pleasant beer

Sevenlee (1294) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - FEB 18, 2012
Pours an amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma is fruity with caramel and toffee. Taste is also fruity with caramel and toffee with light hoppy finish. Not bad.

Jessop (207) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 6, 2012
Pours lovely rich amber with small compact head that doesn’t last. Wonderful rich fruit and dry powered malt bouquet balanced with citrusy floral hop notes. The palate is strong caramal malt that delivers the complex long hop character. This beer finishes nicely...I’m overall surprised....well done.

Hint of coffee in taste and aroma. First taste gives impression of thick IPA but it is actually quite light. Did seem a bit fizzy but did retain a good head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brenhophead (547) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 9, 2011
Aroma is of caramalts and bit of toffee and the flavour backs that up, unfortunately there its much hop flavour/aroma to it, hence very disapoint for an IPA.

Davros (1897) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 20, 2011
Pours dark amber with a quickly fading off-white head. Nose shows lots of malt with caramel, toffee and some soft citrus hops underneath. Similarly malty flavours but with a bit of orange/tangerine in there too. Pretty tasty stuff. Body feels a little light on. Not very hoppy but nice nonetheless.

Jade (409) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 11, 2011
Coppery brown colour with a red tinge. Thin creamy head that dissipates rather quickly. Toffee / caramel on the nose, quite pleasant. Nice, tart bitterness to the taste and an oaky after taste. Quite nice.

ComradeK (1006) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JUN 4, 2011
330ml bottle. Pours a clear, darkish amber, with a medium off-white head, which lasts very well, leaving good lacing. It presents an alluring aroma of slightly oily pine hops, with a mild herbal undertone, supported by a touch of hazelnut. Abundant spicy grapefruit hops start it off, moving into a full-bodied nutty malt middle and a tangy herbal hop finish. A satisfying and generously-hopped IPA, and I must admit a pleasant surprise from the pet "craft" brewer of one of Australia’s largest supermarket chains.
