GBBF Day 1. Bottle share. Thank you whoever opened this. Hazy amber beer, good cream colour head. Palate is light and airy with good fine carbonation. Sweetish malts, some caramel - toffee. Lovely peach and mango, hop spice accentuated. Resinous orange and tropical fruits. More hop spice on the smooth finish. Rather lovely.

Bottle at GBBF 2015. Hazy amber lasting beige head. Grapefruit aroma. Fresh pink grapefruit. OK in mouth. Some light pepper. Harsh bitter finish. OK up front leafy tannin. Some bitter finish. I mean it’s in your face full on. Big and harsh. Jjju

Crisp fresh taste, not overly bitter. Light refreshing body. Dry finish, long lingering bitter aftertaste. Mixed hop aroma of floral and pine. Drinkable but i prefer the tasmanian version.

Draught @ Ginger Man. Slightly hazy dark orange with small off-white creamy head, faint floral hops aroma, medium carbonation, slightly watery hoppy taste, floral flavor remaining after a longish finish. Nice though a bit watery.

Pours a medium amber color with off-white head. Floral notes and some citrusy pine on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes smooth for an IPA.

Nice floral aroma and a spicy, slightly resiny hopping. A fairly bold IPA that clocks in at a reasonable 5.25%, very nice.

Nicely done beer. Lots of hops like expected. Could use a little more malt but still nice.

Great color, a bit cloudy. Smells fairly strong hop scents, but those smells don't follow through in the hop flavors. After taste is almost malty

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not bad for a session IPA. Great appearance with a large fluffy frothy long lasting head, and some lace. Color is a slightly hazy honey amber. Aroma is hops, pine resin, caramel. Flavor’s like nose, Bittersweet up front with a bit of carbonic tang, some off flavors in the finish. Body is a tad thin and carbonation a bit light. I recall having this before and it being better.
