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.

Bif (1292) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 11, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Served a hazy bronze color with a good head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of pine, some citrus and fruity with a bit caramel. Taste of pine and citrys with fruit and bit of caramel sweetness. Has a nice bitterness and a clean finish. Medium body, crisp and nicely balanced. Flavor is enhanced as it warms. Very good IPA. Worth checking out.

Jado (436) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2013
Pours a hazy orange with a pillow white head, lively sparkle and a few floaties. Getting lots of peach, along with some lemon, orange, pine needles and a light earthy note on the nose. Taste has firm hop bitterness with pine resin at the front end, dropping off to some gentler apple, spice, malt and citrus flavours. Quite a clean finish with a citrus aftertaste. Really well balanced, elegant and a great example of the style. Probably closer to a US IPA than your average Aussie brewer produces. Really good stuff.

M_Sack (275) - AUSTRALIA - APR 25, 2013
Impeccable version. Amber colour, citrus and passionfruit aroma with a huge hop wack in the mid and back palate and a very long bitter finish. Great beer. Notes from the tap at the brewery but score from bottle

HopRedHead (322) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 18, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a cloudy amber with 3-4cm of slowly receding off-white head. Upfront stonefruit hop aroma with a nice caramel malt backing. Smells like a big beer. Tastes like one too; big citrus and tropical fruit hop flavours with a nice dark/toasty malt sweetness. Had to re-check the label to make sure it wasn’t a double IPA! Great lingering bitterness, pleasantly surprised with this beer!

Gramoit (346) - AUSTRALIA - APR 5, 2013
Very nice on the nose, this is a very good IPA, that gives you some lingering bitterness, sweetness and big hop flavours.

Sevenlee (1194) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2013
Pours an amber colour with a tall frothy off-white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, caramel, pine, biscuit and hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a large and bitey bitter finish. Really quite surprisingly good.

Bottle from Slowbeer. Sweet, fruity aroma, passionfruit/ripe peaches. Well balanced flavours, easy drinking, solid hop bitterness. Very nice. Really liking Mornington’s beers!
