4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasting @ Cellarbrations Carlisle Carpark Brewday.
A pastel shade of orange and sparkling with good head retention.Quite floral is the aroma with a backdrop of passionfruit, lychee and peach. Predominately hop driven on the palate with a dousing citric fruit tang and vinous, herbal backend. Moderately bitter and briefly earthy before more fruit and flowery notes fade off in the swallow. Very clean, very lean and oh so well done. Enough malt to fill it out but this is kept in the shadows by the lovely use of hop in this one. Done well to create something just plainly sessionable. Mash has done well with this one. Perfect harmony of hop and malt in a beer that should be on tap at everyoneís local!!

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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark amber with a fading head.
Nose shows herbal hops with some sweet biscuity malt underneath.
Aggressive flavours. Sharp bitterness and alcohol almost steamroll everything. Some grainy malt.
Carbonation is too high.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at mane liquor. Pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Aromas of herbal grassy type hops. Strong focus on the earthiness with a hint of grapefruit creeping in. Taste is herbal leafs with a grassy hop bitterness. Orange and grapefruit slightly becoming evident at the back end. The bitterness lingers and really letís you enjoy the herbal hop dominance. Good to change up from the typical fruity ipas.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 10C. Clear amber with a white head that settles to a half inch. Earthy and fruity aroma with a bit of caramel behind. Earthy and spicy hop aromas with peach and bit of passionfruit. Taste is more peachy than suggested by the aroma with some oranges, tropical fruit, pepper, firm bitterness. Classy, balanced.
