3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This pours and laces well. A good consistent head. I love the soft pineconne and citrus hop aroma that comes through. A thick mouthfeel and the flavour of malt and hop dominates but for a slightly ferric/curic aftertaste. This is a slight detraction from an otherwise fine beer, my first for the Aussie winter.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber from a case bought at work. Aroma is grapefruit, stinky caramel malt, candied citrus, flowers, perfume. Pours hazy orange with an off-white head with great retention; leaves some cobwebby lace. Taste is highly bitter with some candy sweetness backing it up. Flavors of citrus, cooked vegetables, alcohol. Not my kind of IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
A very bitter, very juicy, strong IPA. It pours a full, rich, orange gold color; medium, creamy head, average lace. The aroma is citrus, candied pineapple, grass, buttery malt... this is what west coast double IPAs smell like when they smell really good. The flavor is strong and tangy up front, and on the swallow there is a very bitter flood of hops. As hoppy as this is, I’d still call it well balanced because of how different the front end is from the back.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lovely gold color. Low head. Light hop smell. Starts slow with hops starting small but right away, then exploding into a mouth filling bitter. One dimensional but good.
