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.

motelpogo (7706) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 31, 2014
bottle, at the union in newtown, why didn’t they think of this sooner? pale amber with an orange tinge and a lasting off-white head; similar aroma to the regular little creatures - some lychee and caramel; grapefruit tang, biiscuity malts, plenty of bitterness though i wouldn’t have minded more

jookos (4236) - FINLAND - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle. Ambery Id guess (straight from bottle). Piney caramels, citrus, some green berryish/green tropicals on nose. Piney, robust. Med bodied, caramels sweets, well bittered. Pine in finish. Quite nice piney fruity ipa.

maneliquor (3480) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 12, 2013
Tap at the brewery. Very solid all round IPA. Wonder if this is a prototype for their IPA they are currently working on releasing as a staple. Either way, it’s very citrus driven stuff. A touch sweet with light bitterness. Very approachable. I prefer more bitterness in my IPA’s but this is a decent take for the masses. Nice stuff

stevoj (3307) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 10, 2015
Not a bad IPA, hazy copper body, creamy off white head with lots of lacing. Aroma of pine, hops and hints of malt. Taste is text book IPA, finish is a tad metallic.

hawthorne00 (3168) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 18, 2013
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.
