COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The two-row pale malt body takes a back seat to the Citra, Centennial, and New Zealand hops for a bright, citrus forward, summertime drinking IPA. Part of the proceeds from this beer will be donated to our hardworking friends at Heal the Bay - an organization committed to restoring and protecting the Southern California coastal waters and watershed.

marcus (7440) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 20, 2015
On tap at Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours Golden with a clinging white head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with some pretty bitter earthy hoppiness from down under. A nice brew.

Backlog rating. Can at Caspar tasting at Chriso’s, London. It pours a golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is mild toffee malts sweetnees with citrus bitterness, pine cones and orange peel. Taste is mildly bitter and yeaty with dried leaves, peppery spice, orange peel, cardamom, hay, grass. Finishes dry and mineral with more citrus notes. Overall, decent

From the can. Bitter pine and sweet malt in the aroma. Taste is assertive bitterness with a heavy sweet malt backbone. Slightly coating mouthfeel. Okay.

hank37 (167) - banksia grove, AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2014
Can from mane liquor. Overwhelming tropical aromas, but mainly that lovely golden circle orange/pine fruit drank you used to have in your lunch box at primary school. Rich caramel, and toffee tasting notes alongside hints of the aforementioned tropical-ness. Quite thin in the mouth, which is surprising given the powerful punch of flavour.

ALLOVATE (2591) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 15, 2014
Into a chalice chilled. Pastel, yellow gold and misty in appearance. Head is fluffy, light and snow-white in tone. Holds for a few minutes but dwindles to a thin wafer. Nose has notes of straw and haybales, honeydew, lychee and pear with a sweetness of caramelised stone-fruit coming through. Quite dry and parching passed the mid-palate. Medium-light too light in body with moderate carbonation. Dry, pale malt leads to a weedy, peppery bitter peak that trails off with a slight sourness and touch of citrus. A subdued fruit sweetness resides briefly between sips, similar to that of the nose. Pretty easy going and laid back as far as IPA’s. Clean, sessionable. (50cL can, Canned 05/08/14, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

maneliquor (3461) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 13, 2014
Can from Mane Liquor. Nice roadie on the way to Drew’s. It’s pretty bloody solid. Wolf among the weeds is killer so this has a fair bit of living up to do and it sits in there nicely. Quite tropical and punchy with mild pepper and citrus rind. Drinks very easy for the abv and has plenty of flavour in a balanced fashion. Tasty drop
