BenL8 (151) - SWITZERLAND - APR 4, 2017
Nice beer but "insanely dry-hopped" must be a bit overstated. Has a nice zesty flavour to it and the aromas are nicely fruity, but it lacks body and overall flavour intensity - its just too watered down. What flavour there is is actually really nice - hoppy, zesty, a little spicy and earthy with a nice and rather long bitter and grassy finish. Nice but I at 3.8% this just lasks body. Very drinkable though (obviously!)

A very hoppy beer, which the barman told me before i ordered. Also relatively strong in alcohol content. Nice dark Amber colour. If you like very hoppy beers, this is a nice example.

stoutnick (841) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 14, 2015
Bold golden peach colour. Aroma is strong citrus hops and resin. Taste is the same with a distinct tangy citrus bitterness. Not my cup of tea but can see its solid.

Maris (1466) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2013
From a 650ml bottle on 20/8/2013. Pours a cloudy, very dark golden with big lasting head. Has a beautiful aroma, with masses of fruity and floral notes, some honey, and a dash of piney hops. The flavour is dominated by sweet citrus and tropical fruit (orange, mandarin, tangerine and mango), with some honey and marmalade, set off against a light caramel malt background. It finishes off with a big, lingering hop bite, with grapefruit notes quite prominent. Has a fullish body and quite lively carbonation. This is a really impressive, beautifully balanced drop. Much more IPA than APA in style, this is just outstanding - the best Australian brew Ive tried to date.

Davros (3054) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 23, 2013
Pours copper with a large, lasting head. Nose shows prominent lychee, spicy hops, sweet clean malt and soft confectionery notes. Pretty aggressive flavours, some soft fruit notes but the piny, resinous and grapefruit hops quickly take over. Finishes with a sharp, aggressive, metallic bitterness. Carbonation seems pretty full-on.

hawthorne00 (3820) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle. Hazy amber with a large off-white head that becomes a fat coat but never less. Aroma of peach, kumquat, lychees, pine, marijuana, bread crusts. Creamy texture with medium carbonation. Moderately sweet with darkish bread, stone and some tropical fruit. quite peppery and piney at the fairly bitter finish. Hearty but lightened towards the finish, leaving a mouthful of spicy and zesty flavours. Complete.

maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Surprisingly great stuff. A darker pour than expected. Heavy amber with a big off white head. Nose shows signs of rye. Light spice and earthy characteristics with heavy citrus and peach hoppage. Citrus and peach come through with heavy bitterness and spice to balance it out. Very sessionable. Very balanced. Creamy bitterness. Great beer

Last bottle ever from mane liquor. Pours a deep amber with a small off white head. Nose has passionfruit, pineapple, citrus and heaps of rye. Taste has a massive grapefruit bitterness. Chewy caramel and rye coming through. Nice mouthfeel. Pretty good stuff ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at fletchfighters tasting. Thanks guys! Pours a cloudy dark amber/brown. Aroma is citrus, pine, fruits, caramel and hops. Taste is light to medium sweet leading to a decent hoppy finish. Nice one.
