COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For the past decade we have poured much of our passion into brewing the best Pale Ale possible and we now feel the time is right to give you a little more…
Sitting alongside our Pale Ale, the IPA will deliver the big, rugged hop flavours and the citrusy nose that you would expect. However you’ll also detect aniseed and savoury notes, balanced out with a long firm bitterness to finish.

Kurtos (108) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours a nice light golden colour with medium carbonation. Aroma. Can smell mainly tropical flavours. Taste. Taste is citrus, with a nice passionfruit touch and a slight pine taste. Overall. Quite a good beer, i’d say it’s just a touch better then their pale ale, but if i compared them side to side, i wouldn’t be surprised if i picked the pale ale.

Niksko (401) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 21, 2013
Pours a light clear golden with a finger of foamy white head.
Nose is fresh citrus, passionfruit, pineapple and a bit of toffee.
Taste is citrus up front, some really lovely toffee and biscuity notes on the mid palate and then a piney and biscuity finish.
Spot on carbonation and the body is medium to light.
An excellent IPA from the guys at LC. Very balanced and nuanced. It’s not a huge hop bomb, but it still ticks all the right boxes.

DeliriumT (368) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 20, 2013
Aroma is as sweet as it is hoppy. Nice golden copper colour. Flavour is well balance but lacking a hop punch! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

orange_3084 (126) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 5, 2013
Golden amber colour. Clear. Thin-medium head. Aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, decent caramel backing. Thinnish oily body. Taste is fairly balanced. Lightly bitter finish. This is a nice beer, but was hoping for so much more.

I was wondering about this. But was great. Big and strong and deep brown colour. Citrus but tarty and lots of deep embers.

Pyobon (1014) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 19, 2013
(Bottle) Clear amber, little short-lived white head. Lovely aroma full of tangy fruit - apricots, citrus - with pine and biscuity malt. Light body with bright carbonation. Nice bold flavour with hops featuring throughout from stone fruit at the start to a fairly decent bitter finish, all overlaid on a quite pleasantly sweet maltiness. A good, slightly different, take on an IPA.

Bottle. Amber with a white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, biscuit, nectarines, lychees, spices. Sweet with stone fruit, grapefruit and spices creeping up quite quickly. Firm bitterness. Good, but won’t tear me away from their pale ale.

Seeing all the "similar to Hop Hog" comments I opened one of them too. This is less bright and vibrant in aroma and lacks the wafting tropical notes of Hop Hog, but has a bit more guts in the malt side of things without being appreciably sweeter. Finish is drier and spicier.

M_Sack (403) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 18, 2013
Bottle. Hazy gold, with a head that quickly dissipates to a thin foam. Some lacing. Big passionfruit aroma, backed up by grapefruit and a touch of honey and pine. Immediate hop flavours of grapefruit, pine and a slight honey backnote, not dissimilar to the pale ale, but without the big malt presence. Smooth, balanced, slightly resinous mouthfeel, but without the mouth puckering bitterness many brewers think they have to deliver. Nice beer, worth the wait, not quite as good as their pale ale but very worthy of having a case sitting in the fridge for a Tuesday night refresher or when mates drop in. Good to see the sell out hasn't effected the flavour ..... yet
