maneliquor (3483) - Perth, - SEP 28, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2012 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Aggressive amber pour with a dirty off white head on top. Nose is sharp pine needles, pineapple and grass. Quite boozy. Taste is big and aggressive and sticky grass and piney hops. Tropical notes behind it all. Very big for an Aussie take on the style. I like it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330mL can, pours an opaque deep dark amber red with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out lots of chewy caramel malts upfront and resinous hops. Flavour is likewise very chewy and malt-heavy, with lots of bready caramel and light resinous hops. Not the most harmonious, but it’s decent.

Maris (1351) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2015
From a 330ml can on 14/10/2015. Pours a cloudy dark golden with a small head. Has a lovely deep, fruity, hoppy nose, with lots of tropical notes and some light caramel. Take a sip and there’s more caramel, which is quickly overtaken by bucket loads of sweet fruit (peach, apricot, mango), some spicy rye like notes, and masses of resiny, mouth coating hops. The palate if thick and the carbonation soft. This is a super smooth, very flavoursome DIPA, with great mouth feel, and is very hard to fault. Mornington is a consistently good brewer and this is one of their very best.

Muggus69 (2023) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 11, 2015
330mL can from Slowbeer. Deep copper body, holds a small firm white cap. Aroma is resiny, dank, spicy, woody hops, cooked citrus and ripe stonefruits with rich caramel malt notes. Thick texture, syrupy, resiny, slick texture, low carbonation, clings long on the finish. Palate is intense - lots of citrus rind, stonefruit, pine and leafy hop character, big punch of caramel malt sweetness holds up throughout. Lingering leafy bitterness, warming finish. Substantial stuff, missing that little bit extra to take it to the next dimension.

Sevenlee (1735) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - SEP 30, 2015
Pours a dark amber colour with a beige head. Aroma is malt, fruit, caramel, floral and hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a big bitter hop finish. Very good.

Bottle from the brewhouse in brisbane, poured into tulip glass, a lovely burnt orange colour, one finger head with good lacing, aromas of pine, passion fruit, taste is the similar to aroma but with a sharp bitterness, another great Aussie beer

Jado (759) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - DEC 6, 2013
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a deep hazy brown with a pillowy off-white head and vigorous carbonation. Aromas of pine, caramel, citrus, biscuit and a touch of sweetness. Taste opens with biscuity malt, soon overtaken by an intense hop bite with lots of pine resin. Slips into some zesty citrus at the end. Medium to full bodied. Pine and malty aftertaste. Well balanced for the up-front style. Good.

M_Sack (605) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2013
Bottle and tap @ brewery. Deep copper with small cream head and heavy lacing. Citrus hop aroma along with a huge amount of malt and biscuit. Immediate hoppy bitterness, resinous mouth feel and pine cones but there is a big malt backbone that provides balance and just a touch of sweetness. The malt is more dominant on tap whereas a drier, lingering bitterness is present in the bottle. Top beer.

Bif (1984) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Pours a mahogany color with a tan head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of pine, some malt/caramel sweetness, some fruit and bit of grain in the background. Taste of pine, caramel sweetness with some fruit and grain, Nice bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body, quite smooth and a bit creamy. The 8.5% ABV is very well hidden. Very nice balance. Very enjoyable beer. A solid offerinng for the style. Well worth checking out.
