4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Slightly hazy, golden orange sunny colour.
Nose: Lovely hops nose with floral and grassy notes followed by spices (juniper, dried ginger and coriander seeds).
Taste & palate: Medium to full bodied, head on, "strong" taste, creamy, slightly sweet, lively, with nice hops bitterness, spices and fruitiness. Refreshing. Well balanced.
A fruity and aromatic, young IPA (bottled 12.05. 2014) with plenty of bitterness, complemented by a slight sweetness which makes this very hoppy beer as easy to drink on it’s own in the summer heat as with a variety of lighter summer dishes. But beware: this beer demands attention, do not try to just sip it "by the way" - this is the summer beer world’s very opposite to light, tasteless lager! :) Well made!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
At just on cool and into a tulip. Fuzzy, sunny orange, well-conditioned, with a creamy, half inch of white atop. Head is steadfast and weaves a drabby lace. Hugely pungent, pine and eucalypt forest nose; resinous, plump, sticky, sap driven with hints of lime zest, grapefruit pulp, Mortein™ bug spray and musty sawdust. Rounded, full and controlling on the palate. Creamy, lush, softly carbonated with a long, softly bitter and herbaceous, pineforest swallow that dries it out. Rose musk is predominate with enough toasted, sweet malt, cereal grain and wisps of sunny wheat to fill it out and give great balance. Light touch of vanilla ice-cream builds late into drinking. Deadly sessionable and just a pleasure to drink. Good stuff. (50cL, 7.0% ABV, BB 19/12/15, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)
