COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ok, the concept for this beer is quite simple. Take our standard Bling IPA and pimp it to create a hop bomb at around 8.5% alc. The real challenge was creating an Imperial IPA that reeks of fresh, pungent hop aromas but doesnt give the impression that it is trying to tear the teeth out of your jawbone. We do hope we got it right!

Soupoftoday (54) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 4, 2015
Best Australian IPA /IIPA you can get. Huge flavour and perfectly balanced. Nice malt backbone supports a hop onslaught of stone fruit, passion fruit, grapefruit, pineapple, mango and slight hit of pine resin. Drinks very easy for the ABV. Easily as good as the most acclaimed New Zealand and American IPAs whilst still tasting unique to Australia. If you see it, get it.
