3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the Oriental Hotel, Tumut. Pours a hazy medium amber, with a moderate off-white head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Resin and citrus hops mingle with nutty malt in the aroma. Floral and resin hops up front are backed by a solid malt backbone, with plenty of nutty and toffee notes. Citrus hops come through in the finish. All in all a good malty style of IPA, although not as highly hopped as one expects in a beer of this style.

330ml bottle into pint glass. Floral hop nose, some spicy notes too. Cloudy copper beer with thin off-white head. Beautiful bitter taste with excellent body. Finish is hoppy and short. Great beer, hides its 7.7% well. Gimme another!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330mL bottle from Beer Cartel
Hazy orange gold body, firm white foam.
Hoppy nose; woody spice, dried leafy herbs, stone & tropical fruits, earthy, bitter citrus undertones with a good measure of biscuity, carame malt.
Full body, good weight that obviously means business, with some slickness & smooth carbonation.
Big malty body with notes of caramel, toast & biscuit, supports big hop flavours of pine, earthy spice, cooked tropical fruits, melon & grass. Slight warmth on a relatively tame (for an AIPA) bitter finish.
Good drop, on par with most of its American counterparts.

A very enticing aroma is not let down by the full bodied nicely balanced flavour. On excellent brew and one of the best Australian IPA’s I’ve had.

Squealer from TruBru. Pours a lovely ruby amber with a fine off white head. Nose is lovely, fresh, resinous hops. Grapefruit and strong pine. Flavor is very citrusy, a bit of caramel. Bitter finish with some really mild biscuit. Not too complex, but tasty and well made.

On tap at The Grain Store. Pours a orange/amber colour, thin white head, very hoppy fruit flavours, mild bitterness with only a tiny hint of alcohol for such a strong IPA.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle from Beer Cartel. I cant believe this beer hasnt better ratings. I find this Aussie IPA sensational, with all the tastes and flavours of a classic IPA. Add to that a lovely lingering bitterness on the palate and dangerously easy to drink. Not too boozy yet still so full flavoured, I’d love to get this on tap. One of the best Aussie IPAs around.
