Bottle. Relatively clear, orange/copper with a frothy white head and good lacing. Understated earth and grapefruit aromas. Immediate and long grapefruit flavours, with backnotes of earthy hops, vanilla and bread dough. A moderate resinous bitterness builds up over the beer. Not a big, bold IPA in the American style, but more to my liking.

6.3%ABV. American IPA.
Tapped out a slightly cloudy amber. 14°SRM.
The nose has nice citrus freshness. Grapefruit and orange blossoms come to mind.
Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate is dominated by flavors of sweet pale malt with some good oaty sweetness and body rounding off the palate quite nicely. This is barely noticeable. The hop character is primarily represented by pine, grass and grapefruit peel.
Finish is medium.
Well done, but not quite an American IPA. Would’ve to be a tad more aggressive in terms of hop character to qualify. I like this one, but given my hop head leanings, this won’t make the list. floydian1 (1534) - FNQ, Australia, - MAY 15, 2015
500ml bottle with BB of 10/3/16 into Tulip glass. Deep amber with a stable white head and decent lacing. This is a moderately bitter American style IPA with plenty of citrusy piney hops. I get prominent tangerine and grapefruit on the nose. Resinous dry hop finish. Medium body and carbonation. bmeup (685) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - MAY 13, 2015
Tugun Cellars 4.4.15. Expecting a whole lot more from this one, still really good, but USA IPA as i expected it’s not.....enough! mkel07 (6604) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle from Malt Traders 060515. Big fluffy crown of foam atop a deep amber beer. Classic American IPA with sweet citrus aromas. Resinous flavours make for a good beer.

From a bottle. This is quite a nice drop, big fruity hop flavours and resin finish, love it. Shark_Pants (781) - AUSTRALIA - APR 18, 2015
Hazy amber, small with head. Nose has honey on toast with citrusy and floral hops. Strong malty base flavour, honey, grapefruit, orange, grassy notes and pine. Solid hop bitterness. Solid IPA. Rosslew (320) - AUSTRALIA - APR 6, 2015
A tad floral early and hoppy fruitiness. Bit of sugar. Light on tongue. Not that bitter and mouthfeel ok. Definitely US IPA but not overly strong.

Bottle - pours hazy orange gold with a big frothy head. Bags of piney flowery hops, some sweetness in there but the hops hold the day. Taste is medicinally hoppy, short sharp hit of bitterness at the back of the mouth, mellowing to a dry flowery finish. Palate is a bit thin.
