Pours an Amber colour looks very clean with not much visible carbonation. Thin off white head. Good bilut reasonably subtle aroma - citrus and grassy hops, am getting a whiff of pineapple in there somehow. Tastes so grassy. I mean, other beers have grass flavored hops but this is unique in its devotion. Also getting pine flavours. This is ultra dense, almost a syrup. Almost no carbonation but a ridiculously good mouth after feel.

Thanx Addie for the bottle.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice hazy paled orange color with a film of a quarter fingered white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. There was some light speckled stringy lacing here and there.
The smell had a generous amount of a tropical fruitiness with a decent complimentary apricot coming about in the aroma.
The taste was moderately sweet and resinously bitter, sour? Maybe...but acceptable at least to me.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent but also somewhat smooth harshness (does that make sense to IPA drinkers?) Hmmm...okay, maybe to me. There’s nothing wrong with what these guys do.
Overall, okay, I think this is my first IPA from the country/continent of Australia. Good job! I’d have it again.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a cloudy brown with a bubbly white head. Almost sour aroma with lemon citrus. Tastes very bitter then finishes sour/sweet. Not enjoyable for me. Slightly disappointed to be honest

Light fragrance with a caramel toastiness. Golden to deep brown colour with some cloudiness, light ringing of bead around glass is only head. Bitterness is first reaction in mouth, leaving a slightly puckered feeling but clean of the palate. A residual floral hop character.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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 i’d rather forget, bitter then sweet. Missed the mark for me,

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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

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.
