UPDATED: AUG 2, 2015 If you’re at a pub in Australia you might be lucky enough to find this in a bottle and break the lager boredom. decent IPA. Rerating on tap at the Durham, tap takeover. Nice solid IPA. beer-yum (1955) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 23, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2015 Not sure why, but I’m not getting the "IPA" in this brew. It’s a good beer - but more of a double malty mild to my taste. Will look to try again though and update initial rating as required. Have done just that (tried again) and I still don’t get this beer. It is nice enough - but in no way an IPA (to my taste at least). monoroc (49) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Pours copper to brown color with a big and solid head. Aroma is malt, citrus fruits and a bit floral. Medium to heavy malty backbone with a taste of orange, brown sugar, a bit of pine. rather narrow, medium lasting bitterness. Good carbonation level. Overall a solid IPA with a faint floral touch.

Tap. Nice IPA, closer to the pale ale territory than IPA but I suppose it’s trying to compete with hop hog. It’s good, but not ’hop hog’ good. HKdIPA (864) - HONG KONG - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle from Brewcraft at home. Dark hazy amber pour - maybe too dark? Thick foamy, slightly yellowed head. Aroma is dank sweet fruity hops. Taste is big fruity and bitter hops. A bit muddled though - dank and bitter. Not bad though - lots of flavor, just seems to be missing some direction. Slightly vegetal finish. Tastes higher ABV than it is. Not bad but not great value here.

Poured from a 330 ml bottle into a IPA glass. Rich golden colour with a robust white head. Very hoppy, with citrus and pine coming through, with a malt balance and backbone. Extremely enjoyable. Sevenlee (1846) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2014
Pours a golden colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, pine and plenty of hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a hoppy finish. Nice. Niksko (635) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2014
Pours a burnt orange with some fluffy white head. Nose is grapefruit, caramel, lemon blossom, pineapple, . Flavor is lots of grapefruit, pine, a bit of biscuit, hint of pineapple. Moderately bitter finish on a medium body. Kurtos (226) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle. Poured into the Spiegelau glass that came with the beer, pours a nice golden colour with a solid 1 finger head.
Aroma. Aroma of sweet and juicy fresh citrus.
Taste. A strong pine flavour up front, followed by a nice mintiness.
Overall. Quite a good beer full of flavour yet very mild at the same time, very unique for it’s kind. StevieT (2039) - AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2014
From a bottle. A very well balanced beer, hops and malt in equal doses, the bitterness lingers on the palate but with a smooth malt finish. I like it.
