2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Barnyard aroma and musty notes. Hops aren't overt, and low for an IPA. Not terrible, but won't reorder.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the local 1st Choice. Nice and fairly complex English style IPA. Lots of malt. Not quite as big a citrus punch as I expected (based on the label). But not bad at all.

Bottle - pours dark orange with small white head. Aroma is oranges, bit of resin and peach. Taste is remarkably smooth was expecting a big resin bite but got a balanced taste witha dry fruity finish. Palate is full and creamy.

330ml bottle into shaker. Subtle aroma, malty, mango, herbs. Cloudy bronze/orange beer with white head. A random bubble appears occasionally. Oily texture, full bodied. Flat with a touch of bitterness. The finish is grapefruit, herbs and mango. Excellent.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Amber with an inch of off white head that lasts well. Aroma of mandarins, pine, crusty bread, lychees. Creamy texture, moderate carbonation. Sweet with bread, a little caramel, tropical fruit, mandarins, a little pine. Moderate bitterness could bite a little more for me and would were the finish a little drier. Not all that hop driven, but a pleasant and fairly complex beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 330ml bottle on 12/12/2014. Pours a cloudy very dark golden with a small head. Has a light sweet fruity aroma. Flavour wise, there’s a fair bit of toasty malt and lots more sweet fruit (hints of citrus, stone and tropical), with a bit of a tang noticeable. There’s a moderate hop bitterness at the back but it doesn’t really present as an IPA to me. It’s more a curious cross between and amber and pale ale. If you can forget that it erroneously self identifies itself an IPA, it’s actually not to bad.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Beer Cartel (Feb 2014). Cloudy orange/amber, quite musty aroma, taste a bit of cardboard, some sweet caramel, restrained bitterness, very little hop aroma. Quite a let down.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught at Alehouse 24, Yamanto, Queensland. Poured clouded orangey amber colour with a thin white collar that laced poorly. Carbonation too low and fine. Aroma of nice floral hops that do not over-power everything else, sweetish caramel malt, hint of citrus and a hint of earthiness. Taste of sweet citrus which remain throughout, even after the bitterness kicks in. Light body. Finish long semi-sweet with a nice bitterness. Quite decent.
