Bottle pours hop hazy yellow gold with light off white head and lace. Aromas of cat pee, citrus, pine and grass. Body medium light. Loving the Battery acid lupin hit of citrus and pine. Finish is tropical fruit. Hoppy!

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
300ml bottle from Crafty Brew. Aroma was poor, maybe the bottle was a bit old? There was some pine and citrus, just not a lot of it. Beer poured a lovely clear amber with plenty of carbonation and a lovely white head. Tastes of caramel, strongly of rye and a hint of white pepper. Rye was a little overpowering for me but the bitterness was good, shame about the lack or aroma in this particular bottle. A little disappointing overall.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Looks..yellow orange, med-good size head.
Smells..big stone fruits and resinous pine, caramel and definite rye which hints to me of a little of a peppery spice.
Tastes..choc full of hops, juicy stonefruits, resinous and bitter, plenty of rye malt that they speak of, is slightly smokey, big long bitter finish. Impressive.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle. Hazy orange body capped by a tightly packed white head. Lemon, flowers, bread and spice in the nose. Taste is sharp citrus at first, soon overwhelmed by a very firm pine resin bitterness with some peppery spice notes. Long drying finish with a bitter aftertaste. A big beer but good with food.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - excited to get out of the bottle, pours hazy orange with a big white head. Aroma is a mix of floral hops with a hint of citrus, little bit resiney and some sweet malt. Taste is dominate by the hops, citrus comes through stronger. Finish is dry and flowery. Palate is dominated by the carbonation, which needs toned down a wee bit. Decent, beer not over done.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330mL bottle from Slowbeer
Bit of a gusher - eventually pours a billowing head atop a hazy orange body.
Nice hop-driven nose - citrus rind, grass, tropical fruits, spicy, toasty, doughy malt undertones.
Lively carbonation, full body, with a sort of slickness to it.
Reminds me of orange-passionfrui juice - some grass & spice in the background. Firm bitterness, dry oily finish.
Pretty good, slightly ruined by overcarbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Hopdog beerworks tap takeover at the Durham, May 2015. Pale amber pour, hoppy IPA with a bit of that spice from the rye and a slightly harsh bitterness. I preferred their mystery hop ipa but this was a solid IPA itself.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle (bottled 12/14) into pint glass. Massive dense pillowy white head crowns a clear light golden liquid. There are heaps of hoppy aromas with grapefruit, oranges and pine needles to the fore with perhaps kiwi fruit and white peppers in there as well. Palate is substantially bitter and hoppy but balanced by a robust malt bill (reinforced by the use of rye) so that it comes together very well. There is a touch of Belgian-style yeasty spiciness as well. The bitterness lingers long after the swallow. This is on a par with Feral's Hop Hog for Australia's finest APA.

Bottle from Plonk (December 2014). Dark orange-amber, frothy off-white head, rich caramel and citrus aromas, some peppery/spiciness, solid resiney/piney hops, medium-full body, quite thick texture, long resiney bitter finish. Great.
