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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A- Pours a deep, cloudy orange hue with a 1.5 finger, frothy head that fades with quite a bit of lacing.
S- Very grainy, caramel, slight hints of grassiness.
T- Starts off very bready which leads into a wave of hops and a nice, crisp, bitter finish.
M- Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation.
D- A refreshing IPA. Doesn’t stand out a whole lot but I would revisit.

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
