COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the English style with generous whirlpool and dry hopping from English and N.Z hops. Tropical fruit on the nose moving into Apricot and Orange with complimentary caramel malts. Our IPA finishes with a bitter, lingering resinous kick.

Dredd (684) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - MAR 7, 2014
Dark amber colour with off white head. Aroma is predominantly pineapple. Flavour is light tropical and stone fruit which moves in to an unpleasent caramel malt. By themselves the components are OK, but together seem odd. Finish is one id rather forget, bitter then sweet. Missed the mark for me,

A beautiful dark orange colour that hints at the orange taste to come. Citrus flavour continues to end but the NZ hops come through. Great bitter finish that lingers nicely. Does seem more US west coast than English but regardless is a fantastic beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reasonable attempt at an IPA, although hopping could be improved upon. Pours with a quality head and appearance.

Gold pour with a thick, fluffy white head.Tropical fruit, orange, peach aromas. Taste is peachy, caramel, slightly citrus taste. Fairly mild bitterness, quite easy to drink and pretty pleasant

Hand pump @ Belgian Bier Cafe, Eureka, Melbourne. Product description is accurate with this one. Good balance of caramel malts and tropical fruity hops with a decent bitter finish. A nice easy drinking English-style IPA that packs a punch.

Brenhophead (524) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 4, 2013
330mL bottle. Pours clear golden with and off white head and a nice resinous tropical fruit aroma slightly similar to hopwired (a very good sign). Nice sweet light tropical flavour with a hint of caramel malt. Not bad at all.

Bottle from Slowbeer. Hazy orange/amber, minimal white head, stone fruit, orange, slighty grassy/earthy, moderate bitterness, easy drinking English IPA. Nice.

Very easy drinking IPA. Not very hoppy but still full of flavour. Great session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
