Bottle from Archive. Big and ballsy this beer ticks all the boxes from the great looking amber colour and deep head to the awesome hop packed flavour. floydian1 (1519) - FNQ, Australia, - FEB 7, 2016
One of the best Aussie DIPAs around with plenty of fresh hops on the nose and tongue (tropical fruits, oranges, grapefruits, pine resin) but superbly balanced by a robust caramel malt bill. Palate is oily and medium bodied with a substantially bitter fresh green hop finish and amazing drinkability for an ABV of 8.5%. it has less of the pine resin notes than Riverside Brewing’s 777 which this beer rivals. From a 330ml bottle (bottled on 5/1/16) it pours clear deep amber with a persistent dense foamy white head. Rangi (671) - NEW ZEALAND - APR 29, 2013
Big hop flavors, citrus, tropical fruit on top of a velvety sweet malt base that keep everything well balanced. Little dangerous at 8.5% and being so smooth and easy to drink. sinkas (293) - Perth/Fremantle, AUSTRALIA - JUL 2, 2013

citrusy, spicy and tropical aromas,
similar flavours, well attenuated but with enough malty goodness to make it quaffable in winter,
bloody good! Soupoftoday (86) - 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 IPA’s whilst still tasting unique to Australia. If you see it, get it.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2017 dark amber. Pine and citrus. Beige head one finger width, and a little rocky. Good lacing. For a high alcohol beer it is barely noticeable to the tongue, although the effects are there. Plenty of hops but not overwhelming like some of the big American IPAs. Need to be careful how many you have as this goes down way too easy. Slightly burnt aftertaste lingers on the palate and adds length to the overall palate. I could sink quite a few of these and regret it the next morning. Wow, what a kick! Brenhophead (695) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 16, 2013
330mL bottle. Pours deep amber with a small off white head and a wonderful sweet tropical fruit/punch bowl aroma. As it hits the tongue I detect the massive bitterness that is tempered by an equally scaled sweetness. Tropical fruit dominates the flavour with a slight hint on toffee malt.
