orange_3084 (96) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 7, 2014
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.

Padpie (3) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 26, 2014 does not count
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

M_Sack (378) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2013
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.

Niksko (334) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 18, 2013
330ml bottle.
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.

Brenhophead (558) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 30, 2013
330mL bottle. Pours deep copper with a small off white head and a sweet toffee mango aroma. Nice resinous tropical fruit aroma with a slight spice and notes of caramel from the malt. Nice beer.

Jado (526) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - NOV 19, 2013
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a clear coppery amber with a fluffy white head and moderate carbonation. Lots of passionfruit, pineapple, lime and guava in the nose. The taste starts off with more tropical fruit before a crisp, sharp hop bitterness in the mid-palate with some pine resin. Zesty finish with lemon and some spice coming through. Medium palate. Good Aussie IPA.
