3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I found this beer pretty damn good especially for an Australian brewery who IMO don’t do IPA that well. quite surprised at others low ratings. Anywho perhaps it is because it is branded as a double IPA. It does seem to be between IPA and double and maybe if branded as IPA expectations might differ?

Nothing much to say about this beer. Do not expect to be blown away by the hops as they are barely perceptible. Average.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark amber with little head. Smells very sweet with spicy hops. Flavour is overbearing with sweetness. Overall tastes like a little bit of a haphazard iipa.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper. Minimal head. Boozy, hoppy brown sugar scent. Tastes the same only stronger in all aspects. A bit raw and rough.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a small white head that settles quickly to leave some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is piney with some caramel. Taste is a piney hop bitterness with some passionfruit and a caramel malty sweetness. Medium bodied with some decent carbonation. Easy drinking for a DIPA and quite tasty and recommended.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
More of a strong ale or weak barleywine than a DIPA. Not real complex or very hoppy. Yawn

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle pour in tulip style shaker. Clear filtered, light amber color. Thin, white head with little lacing. Caramel toffee notes in aroma, with hint of pine. Light on carbonation, strong initial hop hit with distinct bitterness, but soon mellows to be relatively easy on palate with malty, smoothness. Aftertaste is sweet but a bit stronger than other Double IPA?s, at this 7% abv. Seems like a decent entry for the style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big hop hit to start with & malt as well. A good start.
Dark Brown, a little cloudy, small head from start to finish but it never completely goes away.
impressive mix of dark malt & hops. Both are very strong.
Long lasting bitter aftertaste with enough sweetness to bring you back for more.
A very impressive beer from a brewery I’ve not been a massive fan of in the past
