3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours pale amber with a fading head.
Nose shows floral perfume, herbal hops, soft doughy wheat. Incredibly herbaceous and floral.
More herbal hops as a flavour, definitely dominant. Some light wheat behind.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours pale gold with little head. Coriander, mint, and orange & grapefruit peel in the nose. Flavor is towards the wit side with wheat and Orange flavors. Assertive bitterness reveals its IPA lineage. Clean and refreshing.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale gold, pee coloured pour with no head to speak of. Citrusy, winey, spicy aroma. Taste is oranges, spice, grassy, slightly bitter. It’s not bad but I’m just not sold on it

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazy medium golden with very little fine white head. Nose is a bit of citrus, some Belgian phenolics, a tiny bit of Nelson character. Not as hop forward as I would have expected for something calling itself an IPA. Flavor has spicy belgian yeast notes, bread dough, a little banana, some citrus bitterness. Not particularly hoppy. I hate to say, but I think this is another instance of Dan Murphy’s not being careful with their beer. Don’t buy hoppy things from them, because they’ll be all gone by the time you drink it.
This tastes like a reasonably well made beer, but it suffers from poor handling.

Interesting one this, looks like a hazy Wit and has lots of hops and spice with a yeasty character. Not bad at all.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy white cream. Aroma is spice. Taste is tangy bitterness. Not very sessional and not my sort of bitterness - a spicy bitter flavour.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy amber with full head. Aromas of honey, lemons and light banana. Flavors are similar with additional bitter grassy finish. Not sure what the intent is.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml corked and caged bottle, champagne pop, wee gusher. Unclear brownish orange, big off-white foam eventually settles. Aroma is citrusy wit fruity. Yeasty citrus hoppy taste, funky wit spice, herbal, gets more tropical as it warms. Lively carbonation, medium bodied, well hopped. A nicer, fruity hybrid, but still : NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2014 Aroma is lemon grass, clove and light sweet malts. Taste is pale malts with most the character arriving from the bitterness. Bitterness leaves a tanginess with some clove, lemon grass and tanin. Appearance is an amber / orange which is slightly hazy. The pearl head is a thin bubbly one with a bubbly body and retains fairly well.
