Davros (1991) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 25, 2014
Pours ruby-tinted copper with a fading head. Nose shows toasty, syrupy malt with some bready notes too. Also a fair whack of pine and resinous hops. Lovely malt flavours too. Quite syrupy, a fair bit of sweetness and bready malt. More pine and grapefruit. Overcarbonated for this kind of malt presence.

Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique April 2014. Copper tainted amber colour with a fair bit of malty character.

Malrider69 (42) - Central Coast, AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2014
Pours a red/brown colour with a well-defined head. Nicely hopped, complimenting choice of malts. I would definitely purchase this beer again.

varanid99 (530) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 25, 2014
Deep red-brown pour with a thick, pale brown head. Pine, caramel, citrus nose. Taste was fairly similar, caramel a little more dominant, nice pine bitterness. Cracking beer.

CacheManyHose (199) - HONG KONG - JUN 13, 2014
From Bottle Shop. Pours an unexpectedly dark opaque rust-coloured brown. Nice very creamy off-white head and legs. Smells quite hoppy but not too bitter, floral nutty malt. Tastes more malty than in the aroma, tiny bit of pepper/spice, gentle hop. Fizzy slightly sharp but slick body.

HKdIPA (258) - HONG KONG - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle from Bottle Shop at home. Surprisingly brown (rather than red/amber) pour with just a bit of reddish color. Dense foamy head. Fruit - pineapple and orange - and a bit of piney hops aroma. Taste is less hoppy than the aroma suggests and more malty, but does have bitter piney hoppiness. Sweeter malty finish. Quite good.

Rangi (594) - NEW ZEALAND - JUN 12, 2014
Big sweetness, toffee and malt with equal parts big piney resiney hops. Really enjoyable.

DesertDevil (534) - Arizona, USA - JUN 10, 2014
640-mL bottle. Malt-heavy nose of slightly oxidized caramel, cardboard, sweet toffee, and a touch of dirty hops. Dark copperish-red color with an off-white swirl of a head. Plenty of piney and floral hops on the taste, along with a slight toasted almond tone, a bit of caramel, and a dry, roasty finish. Medium body with a slightly chewy texture. Decent brew.

Bought a longneck from Purvis. Outstanding IRA ticking all the boxes; caramel sweet malt flavour, citrus hops and decent alc content. Had it with homemade pizzas and mates listening to Men at Work on vinyl, brilliant night and brilliant beer :)

Dredd (696) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - MAY 24, 2014
I really love what Mountain goat does with their Rare Breed range. This one is no exception. Deep ruby colour with thick tan head, lots of pine, grapefruit and caramel on the nose and similar upfront on the palate. Long resinous hop finish with smatterings of dried fruit and brown sugar.
