Split the 650ml bottle with father while having lunch on the patio of the Urban lounge. Brown hazy body with a limited cap, looks good. Nice toasted malts, good sweetness, caramel, strong but not overpowering hops. Great patio beer light easy drinking with a good strong flavour. Wish i took better notes but you know.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a fairly clear brownish amber colour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma has a lot of caramel and toffee with some toasted malt and light hop scents. Taste is not really sweet but is consistent with mild-above average bitterness. Medium body, creamy mouth feel, average carbonation. A serviceable IPA, but nothing amazing.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
650ml brown bottle. Bronze colour with some haze. Fat and creamy head, just off white in colour. Huge lace rings in the glass. Nose is light with some oangey notes, a little caramel. Taste has a toffeeish sweet malt base, a bit of toasted malt, orange fruit notes, mild piney hops. Aftertaste is malty, light pine and citrus character, low bitterness. Medium body, light carbonation. Feels under hopped, a light interpretation of IPA, for my tastes I need a little more boldness from the hop bill. Donít think Iíll be revisiting this one very often, thereís way hoppier brews at the same price point.

Grain and pumpernickel aroma with some spicy hops and melanoidins. Almost clear brown under an off-white, thin cover. Dry spicy caramel flavour with notes of strawberry and apricot. Decent balance and with some nutty character. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly bitter finish.

650ml bottle pours a rich amber color with a finger of white head and some thin lacing. Aroma is woody with some caramel. Taste is a moderate earthy and woody hop bitterness with a hint of citrus and a light caramel sweetness. Light to medium body and adequate carbonation. This is an ok IPA, but not quite as good as some.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled sample Clear pale copper in colour with moderate carbonation. Loads of pine resin, caramel, dried leaves and black pepper on the nose. I get a tree bark and pine sap combo upfront in the mouth, faint white grapefruit and more caramel mid sip, before a somewhat harsh wooden hop and plaster finish. Fairly light bodied in spite of the caramel flavours. A pretty brash and woody IPA.
