3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy amber with a foamy head that fades to a nice lacing. Fruity aromas of passionfruit, some straw-like grassy notes, mango and some spice. Like nothing I have had before. Flavour is well balanced, with a bready malt backbone that showcases toffee and caramel balanced with the sweet fruity esters of the Aussie hops. A tad overcarbonated for my liking, but this was remedied by leaving it to warm up a little. The best of the Hawthorn beers

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours with very attractive frothy head and nice lacing. Compared to American ipas this is mild on the hops. decent malt showing through. This is okay if you’re out somewhere with no better options, as I was (rumbar)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy golden-orange colour with a medium white head and good lacing. Tropical fruit aroma. Mango and pineapple with delicate spicy floral notes. Touch of grass. Fairly thin body. Taste is a little bit underwhelming. Grassy and perhaps a little sudsy, but not unpleasant. Moderately bitter. Needs to warm a bit for any malt to be particularly noticeable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Great smell, fruity passionfruit on the nose. Strong flavor that persists. Good beer on a warm day if in the mood for something heavier

On draft at y&j MEL. Muddy appearance but clean head. Good IPA with some bubblegum aroma. In good condition dispute the cloudiness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Amber/gold with a frothy white, well retained head and heavy lacing. Complex, yet reasonably subtle (for and ipa) aromas of pineapple, pawpaw, passionfruit, citrus, apricot and just a touch of malt towards the end. Resinous flavours, along with peach, grapefruit and a peppery finish. Very little malt which unbalances the beer slightly. Mildly over carbonated, with a long, enjoyable bitter finish. A good middle ground between the English and American ipa's.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy orange with fine white head.
Nose is promising. Lots of fresh fruit aromas like orange, pineapple, mango and peach. Also there’s a great guava note in here. A hint of caramel, but mostly fruit.
Very fresh taste, with some peach and grapefruit flavours on the attack, followed by toffee on the mid palate and a fairly bitter, caramel finish with a good dose of grapefruit.
Body is medium, carbonation seems a little high but still acceptable.
Pretty good. I really love how it smells, and the flavours are pretty interesting and tasty.
