An India Pale Ale showcasing our three favourite Australian hops, increasingly renowned for their bright, tropical fruitiness. Passion fruit, pineapple, grapefruit and melon course through this ode to the antipodes.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2015
Bottle, Londis, Penny Lane, Liverpool. Hazy amber pour with a middling off white head. Some promising tropical fruit in the nose alongside some grassy hop. The flavour had notes of caramel malts, mango, citrus, earth and veg. Reasonable hop bitterness. Overall it didn’t perhaps hit the levels promised in the nose. Solid enough offering though and gets an extra mark for being from my birthplace (that’s Briz not Oz)

Lightly hazy amber beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is light and a little dry. mild fine carbonation. Mild caramel in the light dry malts, Hops are mild orange and a little tired mango. Some tea. Light dry finish. It’s okay but I think faded and fading fast.

Awesome. Plenty of tropical fruit, a decent amount of sweet malt, balanced well by sour citrus and a lingering bitter finish. Hops galore. Lovely.

DruncanVeasey (7768) - NUNEATON, 3rd, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2014
330ml bottle. Appearance: can’t see it in the laptop light; slim capped, lightly misted gold, maybe. Aroma of rhubarb, sharp mango, tamarind balls, flecks of vomit and pine, maybe cinnamon with deeper oily resins emerging as it warms. Robust greasy nut base overlaid with mango, pine, lemon mousse, yoghurt and old limes on the turn, Slick condition. Deep malt linger, Strangely shitty, almost lambic-like streaks. Out there.

floydian1 (1215) - FNQ, Australia, - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle (330ml) purchased in Bristol UK with BB 16/10/14. Hazy deep amber pour with stable white head. Nose offers strong tropical fruits (passionfruit, lychee, pineapple, grapefruit) with piney hops and malts. Taste is noticeably rich and fruity with a robust resinous hop bitterness that lingers but does not overwhelm. Excellent stuff.

CraftBeerNick (1317) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle at home, 28th June 14. Good hoppy brew, loved the malt undertones, the aroma is slightly more than the taste, a very decent IPA though

RichTheVillan (4836) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; clear copper pour with a creamy off white head, tropical hop aroma, taste doesn’t quite live up to the aroma, light pine, grapefruit, some vegetable stock, ok bitterness, decent.

downender (7150) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle from the Beer Emporium, Bristol. Hazy amber, with a slight off-white head and touch of carbonation. Big and bright aroma of pineapple and grapefruit, with a hint of sweetness. Flavours had plenty more tropical fruit, some crisp, balancing malts and a dryish finish. Excellent.
