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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
