COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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 (1108) - 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.

One of the best IPAs to come out of Australia. Pours with an excellent head, strong, long lasting flavour.

Oakes (11866) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2013
A bit murky, dull tan-amber, nice frothy head. Earthy, mushroomy hop. A bit syrupy but with earthy, crackery hop character.

Cloudy poor with some sediment present. There was a pleasant balance between the hops and malt. Not the best ipa I ever had but Pleasant.

Bottle, a bit of a gusher.

Pours a darkish golden with a finger of bubbly white head.

Nose is citrus, apricot, peach and some malt sweetness. Very inviting

Taste is peach and apricot on the attack, followed by some citrus on the mid palate. The finish is a solid piney, resiny bitterness, some grapefruit, a hint of sweetness and that gorgeous biscuit that I love so much in an IPA.

Mouthfeel is a bit fizzy for my tastes, but it’s not overly so. Medium body.

I can see why everybody raves about this. It’s got really great balance and complexity, and overall it’s just delicious. A great combination of hops that I might have to steal for my own homebrew.
