TedE (1015) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2015
On tap at brewery. Great hoppy aroma, stone fruit, tangerine. Minimal carbonation, small lasting head. Ohhhh, its bitter! And it’s creamy. Finish is lingering grapefruit. This is a good beer. Of course, looking at the pacific ocean on a gorgeous late summer Sunday helps!

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2014
Pours a clear golden with a firm white head. Tropical fruity aroma with the expected piney and citrus dominating. Very light bodied and dry for easy drinking. Resinous bitterness that leaves a tangy sensation on the tongue. Light on the malt sweetness leaving what is very much a hop driven ipa. I don’t imagine this will be the most memorable ipa, but it is an enjoyable one

On tap at Scratch Bar. Aroma is a little mellow and flavour is the same. Not overpowering which sometimes is a good thing.

Sevenlee (1762) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JUL 2, 2013
On guest tap at Six String Brewery, Central Coast. Pours a cloudy amber colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, pine, fruit and hops. Taste is light to medium sweet leading to a moderate bitter hop finish. Pretty decent, I thought.
