Bottle. Hazy, orange liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of lemon grass. grapefruit, mango, citrus, biscuit and cereal. Some light booze. Taste is dry and medium to high bitter with some booziness and fruity hops. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. OK IPA with a nice hoppiness.

Bomber from the Gold Coast in Vegas. Bottled at 7.2%. Decent IPA. Fair amount of hoppiness, but a very average brew all in all.

Pours a slightly cloudy orange, thin head.Nose is citrus hops, bubblegum and malt. Oily palate with some malt. Disappointing finish lacking in hops. Not a beer to re-visit.

Strong pine aroma along with the storng hops. There is a sweet bitter aroma to it that is coupled with a lot of grapefruit. There is also some orange zest, a little citrus and a touch of mango.
Hazy, light orange colour with a cloudy centre and a large, foamy white head at teh top that has great retention and leaves good lacing on the glass.
Pine hops and some malts along with a combination of citrus and grapefruit flavours. There is a lot of bitterness to this one and some mango is thrown in for good measure. There is also a strong kick to it.
Medium in body with a sweet tang to it and lots of bitterness. The feel is a tangy smooth one with the finish hinting at some sourness.
A good IPA although not one of the best I’m afraid. I enjoyed this one and would have it again but it wasn’t outstanding and it was a lot more bitter than I would have liked.
