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.

floydian1 (1344) - FNQ, Australia, - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle. Label states 6.4% ABV. Deep amber pour with decent white head that laces well. Aromas of peach, oranges and apricot dominate the nose. Palate is honey sweet and malty at the beginning before a substantial resinous hop bitterness takes over. Medium bodied with slick mouthfeel. A good well balanced IPA.

fletchfighters (1399) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 3, 2016
330 ML can Darker orange amber color. nice light tan head, excellent head retention and lacing. nose is herbal and spicy. Soft notes of stonefruit. taste is straight up pine and grapefruit bomb. Very dank. Massive bitterness to the point of aspirin like Taste. Bigger then the 6.2% indicates though. Feel is full of oil and resin. Very slick. Undercuts of caramel and stonefruit. Big grapefruit bitterness. If it were a bit leaner it would be sensational. One of the better IPA’s made here.

mcberko (13894) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 31, 2016
330mL can, pours a cloudy dark orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out resinous hops, lots of oranges, and earthy notes. Flavour brings out herbal and spicy hops, juicy citrus notes, and earthiness. Fairy dry with a low residual sweetness. Ordinary but decently done IPA.

Stew41 (1909) - Phuket, THAILAND - APR 3, 2016
Very impressive. Packs real impact with slick malts and hops and delivers much more than a 6% IPA typically would. One of the best Oz IPAs I’ve tasted.

jmgreenuk (7419) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - FEB 29, 2016
Draft at Taps Beer Bar Changkat, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a hazy medium amber with a big frothy white head. The aroma is citrus, grassy hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a fresh zesty citrus fruit, crisp woody, light toothpaste hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

Lukasmh (780) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 10, 2016
Can. Pours amber with small white head. Aroma has hops, fruits, quite some jammy malts, caramel, light pine. Taste is light floral, spices, citrus, but dominated by malty sweetness and grain. Light spice, and dry light bitter finish. Think this would be awesome all fresh.

330ml can from Leura cellars. Orange amber colour, foamy off-white head leaving lacing and aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, hop resins. Taste is malt caramel, sweetish, with peach, apricot, citrusy, grapefruit & pine, resiny spicy bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry tangy bitter finish. Very drinkable.

Excellent hoppy beer. Great taste. Great brewery. It's worth taken a trip and enjoy some of their beers with a wood over pizza. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
