Brenhophead (622) - 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.

Thylacine (526) - Tasmania, AUSTRALIA - SEP 30, 2011
Bottle - Dark amber with beige head. Medium carbonation and body. Caramel malts. Quite fruity. Good dose of hops. Dry bitter finish.

Davros (2066) - 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 (417) - 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 (1058) - 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.

maneliquor (3328) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2011
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Light copper pour with a small white head. Mainly toffee malts, not a lot of hop character in there

davidm (1977) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 30, 2011
Bottle 330ml. Nice and malty. Aromas of caramel, butter, and honey. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and good length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a thin head.

crispi (106) - AUSTRALIA - APR 28, 2011

blackbock (112) - Shoalhaven NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAR 14, 2011
(bottle) Poured a light tan with creamy head. Up front sweet toffee and dark fruit flavours. A good whack of bitterness, but this is no mouth puckerer. I love IPAs and this is a good one, but after being force-fed a Corona beforehand this was like an assault on my tastebuds. At 5.4% you have to watch this drinks on this one too.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 20, 2011
Bottle. Pours a light copper with tan coloured head. Probably a little dark for the style. Lots of malt on the nose. Light caramel, some toffee and a little dark fruits. Some floral grassy hops in support of the malt. Good stuff and better than expected. Flavours probably let it down a little. Some sweet caramel followed by resiny hops. Not overly bittern. Medium mouthfeel. Definately better than expected.
