12oz bottle - poured a nice copper color. Immediately the strong malt presence was noticed in the aroma followed shortly by the first taste. This is a very mellow IPA that tastes good from first sip to last.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 355ml bottle on 10/3/2016. Pours a slightly cloudy golden with a small head, Has a muted aroma of caramel, honey, some citrus fruit and an odd slightly chemical smell. Take a sip and there’s a bit of sweet caramel malt, lots of sharp sweet and sour citrus, a bit of spice, followed by a big, quite astringent bitterness. The texture is a touch syrupy and the carbonation is soft. This is a bit of a weird one. Not at all typical of a west coast IPA, and comes across as a little unbalanced. On the bright side, it did begin to charm me just a little towards the end.

Bottle from Beer Cartel, Sydney. A fairly deep copper-amber colour with a small and fading off-white to light beige head on the pour. Aromas of pine, resin, tropical fruits and sweet-accented malt. Similar to taste wth a slight toastiness from the malt towards the back end. Mid-weight with definite malt heft but maintains a crisp, refreshing texture. Medium carbonation finishing with a moderate to full intensity and length bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 10C. Clear amber with an inch of near white head. Interesting aroma with bread crusts, peach, pine logs, kumquats, grapefruit. Full bodied but not sticky, moderate carbonation. Bittersweet with hop aromatics thoroughly melded into clean rich malt flavours. Bread, singed grain, peach, hints of stewed and dried fruit, citrus peel, pine. Fairly strong bitterness. A bit wearing after a while, but a fine beer and a good reminder that IPA is a very broad "style" even in the West of the US.

Pours a hazy golden brown with a thin pale head. Hints of citrus in the aroma, along with sweet malts. Roasty and malty flavor. A bit burnt with some hop background. This beer has lots of flavor, but it is a bit heavy for my liking.
