3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bright orange colour and thin white head. Hoppy aroma with a hint of citrus. Watery mouthfeel but a very nice bitter IPA taste. Itís a bit thin but an alright IPA.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a very light gold with a minimal bubbly head. Smells of pine and grass, but not a big aroma. Taste is similar with a bit of lemon. Sweet with just a touch of bitterness. Light mouth with some carbonation. Itís not bad, but somewhat unremarkable.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On keg in Drafthouse Northcote. Clear pale amber, medium white head. Not entirely what I expected as itís not bursting with citrous and grapefruit. Fairly subdued citrous, orange, grassy notes, grain husk, caramel and biscuit malt. Taste is orange citrous, grassy, slight soapy, caramel malt. Nothing to shout about but decent.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose is bread, biscuit with a little orange and mango. Taste is lightly bitter, with lots and lots of pine, a little butter scotch and malt. The finish is lastingly bitter. Mouthfeel is light.
A really surprising beer, itís not an American IPA at all, but a traditional English IPA with the pine and alcohol strength turned up. Itís nice enough. Bottle is lovely.
