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.

maneliquor (2785) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours opaque amber with a small, sticky off white head. Citra and Simcoe hops are showcased nicely in this one. Passionfruit, mango, citrus all jumps out the glass at you. Very fruit forward and punchbowl like. All comes through in the taste. Vibrant fruit driven with a long, and nice grapefruit bitter finish. Very good beer

mkel07 (2520) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 1, 2012
330ml bottle. Heavy in the glass which is always a sign of a good beer. Orangey amber colour with a low even layer of foam that sits nicely. The aroma is full of big citrus hop notes that fill the nose, also some passionfruit in there? In the mouth it is full and rich with just the slightest hint of bitterness. Big brash flavour with a mixture of maltiness and fruitiness, a good blend that sits in the mouth well.

hawthorne00 (2255) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 13, 2011
Tap (growler). Amber with a light beige head. Aroma of peaches, nectarines, kumquats, pine. Full, somewhat oily mouthfeel. Taste is initially sweet with stone fruit and caramel, then first citrus then pine bitterness kicks in. Quite aggressive resinous bitterness builds up over a glass and if there’s any finesse there it got elbowed out of the way. But this is pretty solid stuff.

mds (2167) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2012
Rich orange in colour with apparent haziness. The aroma is extremely pleasant with notes of plum, apricot, orange zest, and yeasty character. The body seems characteristic of an English IPA but it’s far more enjoyable due to its fruity hop character. Really enjoying this.

jonno (2130) - JAPAN - MAY 7, 2011
Initially I thought that this was fairly hop light, but as it warmed a more than respectable IPA presented itself. Pine and Citrus with some tropical fruit with a fairly beefy body. Not going to bow you away, but a pretty decent everyman’s IPA.
