From a bottle. Big piney aroma, thick mouth feel, certainly lives up to the name with heaps of resinous hop flavours. Good stuff.

Pours a cloudy golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is malt, citrus, floral and some hops. Taste is moderate sweet leading to a hop finish.

Westkyoto77 (610) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 30, 2015
Bottle. Poured a medium-dark cloudy amber with a thin fine head. Tropical aromas of pineapple and stone fruit. Rich enough without ever being sticky, and flavoursome, but lacked a certain something that might make me go and buy it again before other IPAs.

330mL bottle from Slowbeer. BB 09/06/16 Hazy pale copper body, holds are rather solid white inch of head. Pungent hops burst from the aroma - resiny, herbal, tropical fruity, guava, papaya, mango-sort of thing happening. Some toasted malt goodness in there too. Full bodied, subdued creamy carbonation, bit of chewy malt in there too. Really not what I was expecting on the body - plenty of malt here, biscuity, caramel, toasty, slight bit nutty, provides some backbone and sweetness for those resiny hops - notes of green mango & papaya, pineapple, passionfruit, kiwano(!?), dried leafy herbs. Lots of punch, bitterness high without being overly abrasive. A bit different, hop combination I probably haven’t come across before and more malty goodness than most IPAs.

A pleasant IPA at 5.6%. Not that punchy but super pine aroma brings in the drinker. Bitter middle but bit light at end. 1.5 std driks. 330ml. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maris (1341) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2015
From a 330ml bottle on 9/6/2015. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a small head. Has a pleasant light passionfruit nose. The flavour is fruity, featuring orange, mandarin, grapefruit and peach. There’s a reasonable dash of hops in evidence, if perhaps a touch short of bazooka status. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Basic but quite enjoyable.

Dredd (784) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2014
Hop Bazooka eh? Lofty claims. Fortunately it is a pretty balanced affair. Pour is hazy orange with a white head and plenty of lacing. Aroma is an interesting mix of piney hop resin with a bit of sweetness, honey perhaps? Flavour is a pleasent upfront burst of grapegruit with some biscuity/bread notes. Finish is a good punch of hops, but not harsh or acrid. Given the precise nature, I would think of this more a hop sniper than bazooka. Either way, enjoyable stuff.

Necrobrew (5) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2014 does not count
Big and hoppy, almost too much hops initially on the palate but very enjoyable. Pine and floral, with citrus coming through with a good malt balance. Definitely would drink again.
