With the growing number of Anerican IPAs being available in Australia this ranks very highly. A good orange hue in the pour and mellow notes of pine resin. There is a bit of same same with the simcoe and amarillo hop flavour but these are well balanced by the malty finish. A really good go to IPA. varanid99 (1204) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2015
Orange gold pour with a decent white head. Malt, resin and citrus aroma. Taste is pine, resin, sweet malt and some tropical fruit. Andrus86 (650) - Busselton, WA, AUSTRALIA - DEC 3, 2015
BOTTLE. Hazy orange to brown with thick off white head.. Strong biscuit & caramel malt nose.. Thin hoppy start that goes to a subtle bitterness in the middle finishing with a thick hit of caramel & biscuit malts.. Sourced Cellarbrations @ Capel ogre71 (359) - Utah, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Has the right combination of malty sweetness and hops to make it very drinkable. Its how I like an IPA. seymour (2045) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - NOV 5, 2015
Poured a 12oz brown bottle into a nucleated schooner glass, a clear medium orange amber colour with thin but persistent white foam and lace. Rich caramel malt sweetness supporting even bigger American hop bill: grapefruit, woodsy, with dank resin (Simcoe?), tangy sweet citrus and overripe apricots (Crystal?). Lingering bitter bite blending well with fruity English ale yeast esters. Definitely a hops-forward balanced, but more tasty and nicely layered than many competing A-IPAs. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth, well-rounded mouthfeel, nice alcoholic strength, long-lasting bittersweet and fruity aftertastes. Very tasty.

Pours a nice clear amber from a bottle. Aroma of tropical fruit, pine-y. Flavor similar, rather bitter. Good beer. beertragic (3) - - OCT 2, 2015 does not count
Have had this in the bottle here in Brisbane from BeerBarons but not on tap before. I remember the bottle to have been a solid IPA. I think these kegs have had a very long journey across the seas from Montana to Down Under.

Bottle. Tastes like mellow grapefruit and pine hops, some resin, some sweet grapefruit, and bready malt. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet grapefruit, bready and toasted malt, light resin, and grapefruit and pine hops. Pyobon (1398) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 15, 2015
(Can) Deep amber brown with good off-white head. Nice aroma of grapefruit with some peppery spice. Great palate, smooth medium bodied with good carbonation. Taste starts with a nice balance of light caramel malt and citrus and steadily herbal then hoppy bitter notes strengthen, but without ever beck ing aggressive. Nice drinkable hoppy IPA. ajnepple (6606) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz bottle. A malty, smooth and balanced IPA overall. Medium body with notes of earth, pine and a touch of toffee and caramel malt to round things out.
