Golden orange pour with slight white head. Aroma is subtle, mainly floral, resin, wheat and honey. Taste is bitter, with some added sweetness from the honey-characteristics. Mild bitterness. Texture is creamy to sticky, with average to soft carbonation.

500ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a finger and a half of white head with good retention, but leaving only a few spots of lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and pine with some hints of caramel. Taste is a grapefruit and pine hop bitterness with a fruity and caramel malty sweetness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A very well done DIPA that I thoroughly enjoyed and recommend to others.

ComradeK (978) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - FEB 16, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden amber, with a smallish off-white head, which lasts fairly well and leaves a little lacing. Spruce and lemon rind hops notes sit over a base of burnt caramel malt to create the aroma. Strong grapefruit and lime hops up front give way to a malty body of burnt caramel. Assertive pine hops come through in the finish. All in all, a pretty solid IIPA, with enough malt to back up its hops.

Hop_Hedonist (222) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 16, 2014
Murky brown - very malty - thick on the tongue - just enough hops to make it drinkable - not my style.

Orange ambrée trouble, effervescence faible, col blanc crémeux tombe vite. Les houblons attaquent rapidement le palais, y déployant toute leur amertume fruitée et résineuse. Dommage qu’elle soit légèrement écoeurante...

Bomber bottle. Pours copper orange, hazy. Think this ones off, because there’s no hop aroma, minimal hop taste, it’s just sweet malt.
