From a bottle. Wow, huge beer with heaps of tropical fruit flavours going on then the big resin and alcohol punch. I liked it a lot.

Tasting at Matt’s
Hazy light amber color, bright copper hue. Nice, robust IIPA with moderate sweetness, good malt, and very good resiny hops, piney, a bit citrusy; a suspicion of sourness though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy orange colour with a quickly dissipating, off-white head. Aroma of citrus, with grassy notes. Big bitter pithy taste, with mango on the medium-length finish. Enjoying this.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330mL bottle, pours a hazy golden orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out citrus and floral hops, with a slight spiciness, and dry biscuity malt. Flavour is pretty timid for a 10%, 100 IBU IIPA, with faded citrus, spicy and floral hops, and a dry bready malt backing. Clean enough, with a thin maltiness that allows the hops to breathe more so. Solid, but not overly impressive.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Alehouse Project. Pours a fairly light golden colour with a creamy finger of white head. Very clear. Smells like a fresh bunch of NZ hops. Citrus, Pine and that NZ hop funk carries this one through from start to finish. Pretty bitter, but not bracingly. Drinks well for the size, low to medium carbonation. One of the best Imperial IPA’s in Australia, wish they made it more often.

On tap at Murrays in Manly. Definitely the most solid Australian Am style IIPA I have had. Huge NZ hop kick. Great aroma and flavor. A must drink for big hopheads.

Cloudy amber beer, small cream coloured head. Smooth silky palate. Rich beer! Nice caramel malt base. Rich deep hops! Slightly briney like a big barleywine but with sweetish peach and mango. Finishes with more caramel malt and a drop of aniseed. Very nice.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
On tap at the Alehouse Project. Great beer, complex and balanced. Aromas of caramel, grass, chocolate, biscuit, and hints of alcohol. Taste is sweet and bitter, with very long length. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Amber, with a thin head.
