3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the brewery bar on 7/6/13. Cloudy appearance, citrus aroma, helluva hop bite. Long spicy finish with a pronounced peppery note ("it actually stings, said my companion). Only (?) 5.5% abv but the heavy hop character made it taste stronger than that. Summary: very lovely indeed.

From can in IPA glass. Pours crystal clear amber with frothy head. The piney/citrus aroma is reminiscent of a West Coast IPA. Hop forward and lingering bitterness on the palate. Solid.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Green Beacon, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out piney hops and biscuity malt. Flavour is fresh, with lots of piney hops and just enough biscuity malt to back. Robust and piney. Refreshingly vibrant for an Aussie IPA. Really nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can (375ml). Clear amber with a dense stable white head. Aromas of tropical fruity hops, pine resin, orange peel and toasty biscuity malts. Taste is similar with a robust malt bill and a resinous dry hop bitterness. Nicely balanced palate with a medium body and lively carbonation. Good stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Clear pale amber with a white head. Aroma of oranges, pepper, pine, biscuit. Lightish bodied. Some tropical fruit as well as biscuit, modest orange and grapefruit notes, some resin and a fair bit of pepper at the moderately bitter finish. Not sure this has canned all that well, seems a bit tired.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. Pours a clear red-amber with a lasting one-finger white head and moderate carbonation. Aromas of lemon, flowers, caramel and oranges. The taste starts out briefly with some malt sweetness but a form grapefruit/lemon zest bitterness soon washes that away. Finishes bone dry with some astringency. Citrus and pepper aftertaste. Really enjoyed this.
