It’s “light orange-tinted amber in colour” and features the stone fruit aromas – peach and apricots – you’d expect from a beer given generous late kettle additions of Citra, Simcoe and Centennial hops. An initially sweet malty palate opens up to a fruity mid-palate flavour and an evermore prominent bitterness.

Pours dark copper. Much darker than I expected. Aroma is sweet grapefruit and pomegranate with a touch of blood orange and toast. Flavour is very refreshing but clumsily bitter. Malt flavours are very pronounced and nicely offset by hop freshness. Catch 22: the beautiful malt backbone drowns out some of the fantastic hop flavour. Great beer

Bottle. A good solid Aussie IPA. Fruity, bitter. A little like Ballast Point Sculpin?

Fairly clear deep amber colour ith thin white head. Interesting fruity aroma, which really becomes more apparently on first sip. Passionfruit and grapefruit come to mind, with some slightly spicy floral notes too. Caramel backing with a slightly grainy flavour. Nice rounded bitterness. Overall a good Aussie IPA.

This beer is a pale colour with an airy head. It smells like citrus and stone fruit and the taste is fruity with a bitter punch. I really like this beer. I liked it more on tap at the Portsea than out of the bottle.

330ml Bottle. Pours a hazy copper with a strong white head. The colour is not overly inviting. The bottle didn?t all fit in the glass and I was surprise when I topped the glass off that the head sprung right back. Strong fruity aromas of apricot and peach, with some grass. Taste is initially sweet, definitely tastes of stonefruit, but has a nice bitterness that is not excessive and dominating. Strong sediment at the bottom of the glass. Very refreshing and I would have again

varanid99 (609) - AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2014
Slightly cloudy orange/gold with a big fluffy head, quite heavily carbed. Citrus and peachy aroma, a little malt. Taste - very sweet up front, peaches, caramel, then big piney bitterness cuts through it. Pretty good.

Muggus69 (1362) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle. Found this to be very abrasive. Pale gold body. Aroma is nice - citrus, passionfruit, peach, lots of dried leafy herbs. Carbonation is decent, body is very drying. Body starts good with some nice malt and sweet hop stonefruit character, but bitterness is very high, overwhelming, spoils it all, found it difficult to drink.

Had it on tap at the Beer Deluxe, a very good IPA. Copper colour, strong alcohol content and great for a balmy Melbourne summers night. Overall a very good IPA

marom92 (47) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 27, 2014
330ml Bottle. An American hopped IPA. Clean and lasting head. Colour of orange tinted amber. Aromas of pear, peach and hints of citrus. Initially sweet flavour with strong notes of stone fruit, moving to a malty and very hoppy taste, with a well rounded and bitter finish. Very enjoyable bitter beer.

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - DEC 24, 2013
Bought in Peninsula, Vic, Australia. Deep copper colour with a small, short lived white head. Aroma is lots of malts and tropical fruits. Citrus peach and grass. Taste is dough, peach and hay. Quite bitter finish, which works well. Good balance to it all. Suiting fizzy carbonation and a abit sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a great IPA, the best one yet in Australia.
