Bottle from XO in Noosa. Nice aroma with a big hoppy taste, but quite malty. Has a nice lingering bitterness on the palate which I like. Quite an easy drinking 2IPA and not too boozy for a 9.4%.Enjoyable and the sort of beer you’d love to try on tap.

Hazy amber with thick fluffy head. Nice pungent hoppy aroma followed by astringent hoppy taste. Mouthfeel is normal, finish is short, but hoppy nature lingers on. Very well done imperial IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear golden yellow colour with a frothy white head. Aroma is largely of earthy and grassy hops, but there is slight bread and caramel malt undertone. Taste is malty sweet with a nice balanced bitterness. Medium body, average carbonation, and a smooth creamy mouth feel. Overall a very nice imperial IPA.

On tap at Oriley & Conways, pours a clear golden with a thick white head and lacing in the entire glass, the aroma is of a classic west coast ipa, tons of citrus and front with a nice backing of malt, the flavor is much of the same with a good amount of grapefruit and citrus with a smooth mouthfeel, solid all around.

Great hop aroma almost just out of the bag. Taste is not as good. Little too sweet and lacks balance. Had bomber from Holmes. I like it just not the best imperial!
