On tap at Cookie. Nice and fruity, with great balance. Caramel, cherries, grass in the aroma. Taste is sweet and bitter, very well balanced; long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 330ml bottle.Very nice. If I blind tasted this I would have guessed it was an APA. Delicious fruity, resiny, piney hop flavour. Hop aroma just keeps on giving. Good bitterness, essence of tangerine or grapefruit peel in the aftertaste. Re-rate: Iíve had about a dozen of these now and Iím really starting to think of it as my All-Terrain-Vehicle of beers. It tastes good any time with anything, itís a steadfast rock of a beer and I love it.

On tap at The Scratch. Great ipa with loads of pine needle aromas with some floral hop aromas also in the mix. Full in the mouth and flavour lingers on the palate.

2 litre Growler from brewery drunk over two days. Fresh hoppy aroma. Bitterness and malt nicely balanced. Quite a full body but very drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2012 On tap at Beer Quartet. Pours opaque copper with a small beige head. Nice nose of balanced caramel malts and citrus hops. The malts back this one very well. Caramel/toffee malts which succumb to a lingering citrus and hop bitterness with great length. Fantastic beer for their first one. They won the Beer of Choice at Beervana 3 out of the 4 sessions and I think they thoroughly deserved that accolade
