Barnyard aroma and musty notes. Hops aren't overt, and low for an IPA. Not terrible, but won't reorder. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maris (1023) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 12, 2014
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.

Acidity on the nose, biscuit too. Some floral notes. Fairly malty, got hop kick. But just so. Not as good as brewer's others. 330ml. 5.5%. 1.4std dr. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

KeefOz (968) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - AUG 9, 2014
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.

Pours a hazy pale amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, citrus and some hops. Taste is light to medium sweet leading to a moderate hoppy finish. OK.

330ml bottle from Brewhouse Brisbane. Looks okay but lacks flavour. Not as good as the other Quiet Deeds beers I have had.
