3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle brought from Australia (thanks, Kat!). Amber pour with small off-white head. Very interesting, unique nose: very malty, some earthy floral hops; bitter and similar to an English IPA. Some wet dog on the nose; perhaps an old bottle? Definitely not as hoppy as American IPAs, and barely even as hoppy as English ones. Really not bad, though. Interesting, for sure.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle. Pours a deep amber with two fingers of fine off white head. Nose is orange, slight peach and a bit of a boozy note. Taste is really just some citrus and pine, with lots of bitterness on the finish. Body is medium. Not particularly impressed by this. The flavour profile and aroma are very boring. Perhaps it’s an old bottle. This one night need a re-rate.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (330ml). Hazy copper-brown pour with decent white head and lace. Malty aromas dominate (caramel mainly) with fruity hops (oranges, cherries) and alcoholic presence. Palate is smooth and creamy with a medium body and well balanced malt and hops flavour profile. Finishes moderately bitter with an alcoholic burn.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a cloudy copper with a thin tan head. Resin hop aroma with a balanced toffee back. Taste is very dimensional. Tasting a variety of hop flavours like citrus, tropical and also piney/resin, all while retaining the toasty caramel undercurrent. Booze is concealed, just a slight warmth in the bitter aftertaste. Great IPA.

Burnt toffee aroma. Nice strong bitterness upfront. Toasty caramel flavours with a little piney hop. Bitter but balanced with the sweet. Nice.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured with a three- to four-finger off white head that subsided to two fingers then collapsed to a thin line of bubbles. A clean golden amber with moderate carbonation that laced OK. Aroma of hops and maybe a bit of sweet caramel. Taste dominated by hops - bitter hops hits up front then continues right through. Medium body. Long not-so-smooth bitter finish. Overall too bitter (for me).

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Brewery. Served amhazy dark copper color with a good head that fades slowly with nice lacing. Aroma of pine and citrus, some caramel and bit of grain in the background. Taste has an initial nip of pine, then some caramel sweetness with some grain. Nice bitterness throughout and a dry finish. Medium body, crisp, smooth and refreshing. Nicely balanced. An enjoyable beer, a nice Australian IPA. good for a few.
