4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
650ml bottle Superliquor Frankton. Big bready herby nose wiht a hint of something sweet like caramel or burnt toffee. darkish brown with a little bit of orange, thick frothy head. Big punchy flavour of malty stonefruit with a ton of bitterness racing from start to finnish. Takes awhile to get into but about half way starts to become delicious and rich rounded beer. Second bottle I’ve had as I enjoyed the first one so much. Brilliant stuff!

Poured from a 500ml bottle, thanks Ryan. There is a big resinous hop character, tropical fruit, bitter hop notes, tannic. A solid IPA.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pine / grapefruit aroma. Deep red colour with good head retention. Very bitter with strong lingering hoppy after taste that could be described as "stone fruits"

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
650mL bottle from Yarragon Ale House.
Pale amber body, holds a creamy off-white head.
Punchy aroma - resiny hops, grass, pine sap, ripe apricot & peach are there but certainly not as all out assault, good measure of biscuity, caramel malt in support.
Full chewy palate, subdued carbonation lends a nice creaminess to proceedings.
Big whodge of sweet biscuity, caramel malt on the body, rather tasty, leading onto reasonably aggressive hop notes of pine, leafy resin & grilled yellow peach (hey, it’s a thing!). Bitterness is firm yet not overt - that malt soaks things up.
Very tasty, not overtly "peachy" but enjoyable nonetheless.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Typical apa but bitterness is unpleasant. Resembles the flavour of tree sap. Not sure I could have a second

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber pour with a big orange head. Stone fruit and more stone fruit, peachy, malty aroma. Taste is Malty, peachy, citrus. Bitterness is a bit of a slow burn - not much at first but comes through pretty huge at the end. Good one.

Bottle from Tanakaya shared at a tasting. Pours a deep copper / light brown with a big soapy beige head. Peaches all over the nose with some mango and grapefruit along with a touch of grass. Bitter with some malt sweetness on the palate. The amarillo hops really stand out throughout. Solid APA / IPA.
