bottle, picked up at dan murphy’s somewhere between gosford and terrigal. amber with a steady head; plenty of grapefruit in the aroma; decent bitterness, perhaps a bit heavy on the caramel but pretty drinkable nonetheless

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap poured into a 4 oz sampler glass. Pine and grapefruit aromas stand out on this one with a subtle lime and even fainter caramel note. The clear, gold body is topped by a soapy white head that leaves an abundant web-like lacing. Moderate bitterness is supported by a light sweet and a touch of sourness. It’s a medium-full bodied beer with average carbonation. It starts with a sweet lemon citrus note and finishes with a clean and dry pine, citrus, and roasted malt character. There seems to be a trace of tobacco in there too, but I couldn’t pinpoint it. The aftertaste is a mellow grapefruit astringency.

Light amber pour with thin, fizzy head. Citrus, floral hop aroma with light malt as well. Taste is malty, citrus, nice bitterness which fades fairly quickly. Not bad

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a golden color and has a foamy head. Has a strong, but not over powering, aroma of hops, citrus and spice. Taste is much of the same as the aroma. I have always been more of a dark beer drinker and did not really like IPA’s until recently. This beer has a good taste that is not over powering, but enjoyable.

Bloody great American IPA. Great complex aroma, firm hoppy bitterness and surprisingly sessional. Goes well with spicy asian food.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark amber, cloudy, with a sweet malty and hoppy aroma. Head is minimal but laces on the edge. Malty flavor with mild hop overtones in the mouth. A bit thin. Aftertaste is ok. I was expecting a bigger beer here.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - pours hazy gold with a big white head. Lots of flowery, citrus hops, decent amount of stone fruit, almost a vanilla cream to it. Taste is overpowered by a sharp bitterness up front, dominates anything else that is in there. Mouthfeel is creamy.
