KeefOz (1674) - Tarragindi, - JAN 24, 2013
Poured a translucent pale amber colour with a white one-finger bubbly head that diminished fairly quickly. Laced OK. Low carbonation. Aroma of floral hops and sweet malt. Taste mostly sweet caramel malt; not hops driven as per their label. Light body. Short clean malty finish. Average.

Appearance - Pours a hazy amber with a small creamy head. Good head retention and lacing for an all round pleasant looking beer. Aroma - Floral hops, biscuity malt with undertones of citrus, honey and spices. Very enticing aroma that is reminiscent of English ales. Taste - Flavour supports the aroma. Hop flavours favour grass, hay and fruity elements. Dry finish. very organic tasting beer. Mouthfeel - Moderate weight in the mouth - just the right amount of carbonation. Drinkability - Sessionable! Very drinkable beer. Overall - Underrated beer in my opinion. A great example of what Barossa Valley Brewery has to offer. An IPA done to perfection.

Surprised that more comments did not mention the Hop aroma which jumped out of the glass. Passion fruit and floral notes jumped out. Very well balanced and surprisingly easy drinking.

Brenhophead (695) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2015
330mL bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a big dence white head. Lots of piney hops in the aroma with more resinous piney/grassey note in the flavour and a nice caramel malt backing. Nice beer, shocking label.

Bottle. Bland smell and bland taste. Maybe I had it a bit too warm but even then I would still like a bit more flavour from this

drpimento (3281) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Poured at a good temperature with a smallish off white head that didnt last and no lace. Color is a little hazy amber. Aroma is a pleasing malt, hop, fruit, caramel, toffee, spice, funk. Flavors like nose, but is more coarse. Mainly its bitter up front, then tang, little bit of malt sweet, then hop flavor, not much blending or complementing. Bodys ok except the bitter/tang thing is a little over aggressive and just doesnt all work together. Finish is like flavor. Again this beer would benefit greatly with improvement of flavor.

@brewery. A tasty beer with a sweet slight floral aroma. Goes down really nice. Nothing in this beer is overpowering.

Cloudy amber pour with a decent white head. Floral aroma dominates with malt. Taste is malty, sweet, light bitterness. Not bad.

floydian1 (1410) - FNQ, Australia, - APR 27, 2013
330ml brown bottle. Hazy amber-gold pour with medium sized white head. Soft caramel malts, honey and floral hops on the nose with similar flavours on the tongue. Pleasant smooth mouthfeel with a nice dry hop finish. Certainly not as hop driven as many other APAs but still good.
