Strong sweet aroma of toffee and grassy hops. Pours cloudy, dark amber colour. Feels slick with medium body and lively carbonation. Taste is medium/heavy sweet with toffee flavours and a heavy bitter aftertaste for the style. Overall a good IPA.

Blackbread with honey in aroma. Fresh honey. Unexpected for IPA. Bad foam.thin as hell. Also taste is unexpected. Bread, dry mouth feel.

Faint golden, tuft white head. Light melon and faint orange. No firm anything here, simple bitter and faded malt. Decently carbonated but finishes silvery bitter at best.

Really citrusy, but balanced beer. Not as bitter as American IPAs. Probably because most of us Australians have a phobia of hops. Nice stuff though.

Tasted 6/6: Bottle: Moderate head. Good lift dominated by hops and malt. Moderate bitterness and good length.
Finally some flavor and style from the guys down in the Vale. .

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Poured a lively, clear amber with a firm and lasting off-white head that left a scattered, soapy lace. Fragrant nectarine, orange marmalade and peach aromas with a caramel malt sweetness. More inclined towards nutty and bready malts to taste but with plenty of fruit qualities on offer here too. Light to medium body though slightly hollow in the mid-palate. Medium carbonation and a lengthy but modestly intense finish of zesty, pithy hops and tangerine.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a lightish amber with a fine white head. Nose is interesting for an IPA. Honey, raisin, candied orange. Flavor is candied orange, burnt sugar, a little bitterness on the finish. Slightly thin and watery body. Interesting aroma and flavor. I’d love to see this aroma and flavor profile with some more hoppiness and body.
