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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

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.

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
