Lunkie (1459) - Glen Iris, - JUN 27, 2014
Herbal hop malt aroma. Clear red amber colour with great head & lacing. Malt berry herbal spice flavour. Smooth lingering palate.

Davros (2025) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2014
Pours dark amber with a large head. Nose shows pine, grapefruit, nutty marris otter-like notes along with spicy and herbal hops. Aggressive flavours. Main focus is on pine and grapefruit again. Not much malt presence which only makes the aggressive bitterness that much more abrasive. Dramatically overcarbonated.

HopRedHead (393) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle thanks again to Mr Bird. Pours golden orange with a nice white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, wood, pine and a bit of Mary Jane. Flavours are nice mix of earthy spice, tropical fruits, grapefruit and some toffee. Nice carbonation and bitter finish. Good!

Bottle from Beer Cartel. Aroma: Bubblegum, apple juice, mango and citrus. And of course heavy malt. Golden with nice head. Taste very heavy on malt, thought it was a bit boring and onesided. Maybe could’ve done well with more aroma hops. Good for an australian beer though.

DoveBailed (4) - - SEP 19, 2014 does not count
Best IPA in Australia. Ridiculously huge aroma. Huge pine and citrus with a lot of caramel to back it up.

Rangi (604) - NEW ZEALAND - AUG 28, 2014
Great wee ipa. May be a little one dimensional in some respects but really enjoyable. Big big pine with a sweet malt. I like this. It’s big piney and sickly at times. Not a session able beer but one to sip at.

bmeup (523) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2014
Good looking darkish IPA with quite a large foamy head. Hops of nettle and sweet malt background, but not enough to counterbalance the massive hop presence. Huge hop bomb, what do you pair this with? ......would make a great batter though.

jonnyguns (1057) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours dark amber with off white head. Nose has sweet fruit, toffee, caramel and some tropical fruit. Taste is tropical fruit driven, grassy tones and slight caramel hint. Solid ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mattyhennessy (342) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2014
Tap at the Catfish. Pours golden orange with a foamy white head. High carbonation. Aroma is resin and citrus with a big punch of pine. The carbonation is high, which suits well. Taste immediately showcases the resiny hop character with a load of pineapple and citrus. Somehow, there is a balance to the huge hop character. Just enough presence to prevent this from tasting like the malt is absent. Another great one from Kaiju

Muggus69 (1270) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUL 21, 2014
Draught Embassy Hotel, Brisbane Orange gold body, holds a dense white head. Good nose; resiny, spicy, woody hops, some underlying toasty malt and caramels. Full body without being overbearing, decent carbonation, lingering on the finish. Offers plenty of hops on the body, particularly resiny, leafy as opposed to fruity. Malt takes backseat, some light biscuity character. Firm bitterness is apt. Not too shabby.

TourDeBeer (119) - your mummas pants, AUSTRALIA - JUL 19, 2014
Honey, high bitters high carbonation. Dry. White fading head, amber colour. Not a stand out. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10
