Bottle from a hunter valley bottle shop's "tunnel of beer". It was the last bottle and I nearly didn't buy it......glad I did.

From memory (2011 version, I think). Bottle. Citrusy and seriously piney. Responsible for starting my love of good beer. Subsequent reincarnations just as good. 2012 version on draft in Queens NYC even better.

TXBadger (1345) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 30, 2014
Pours a nice copper color with white head. Citrus, pine, and some straw notes on the nose; follow onto the palate. I’m also picking up a flowery note here and there. Very good, very complex.

Jorn69 (905) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2014
@ Havregatan. Flaska från Systembolaget (28:-). Fruktig och humlig, söt med en del alkoholtoner, grapefrukt och tallbarr, medelfyllig. Avslutningen är rejält torr och besk.

60minuteman (720) - Frazer, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2014
Light brown pour on draft at xfinity live. Hop centric aroma accompanied by malt, wheat, floral arrangements, and light citrus, probably orange peel. Taste is mostly hop, rye bread, malt. Clean and well rounded. Very nice. Thought it was an APA

Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a nice pale tan head. Good fresh fruity nose. Taste is strong grapefruit hop. Very nice.
