Impressive - hoppy makes me happy - easy drinker - alcohol not prominent - well balanced fruity brew. Kurtos (199) - 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. davidm (2080) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 30, 2009
Tap. Very hoppy, great taste. Aroma of grass, and bitter flavour that lasts long. Palate is velvety, and it has a medium body. Orange colour, with a frothy white head. JuanFernandes88 (39) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 17, 2017
Dark orangey brown with a nice white head.Full on hop aroma of tropical/citrus fruit. Good malt balance and slight bitter aftertaste that makes for a very drinkable IPA.

Fargen er amber med beite skum. Flott syrlig smak med mye bitterhet i avslutningen. Mye sødme. Melkebaren.

Comes in a triple pack of 330ml bottles and a Spiegelau IPA glass. Looks great with a hazy copper-amber body and a large foamy off-white head that displays great retention and lace. Aroma is robust biscuity caramel malts with plenty of balancing citrus and pine resinous hops and this is transferred to the palate which is medium bodied and lively. Finish is resinous and bitter but not overpowering. Balanced and very enjoyable. Sully (1380) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - SEP 10, 2007
It pours like an American stlye IPA in that it isn’t clear and coppery like the mainstream ones a la JS. It seems to promise a bit more body and it does. Nice and chewy with the requisite hoppiness of the style. Like mothers I think this bats outside of its league as it is the same ABV and the JS IPA. Lovely resinous toffee nose and a great mouthfeel round off a very good experience. This reminds me a lot of the Jamieson Beast but not at the 7% of this beer. Well done to the lads.

On tap at brewery and then later in bottle. This is a little beauty. Wonderfully amber in colour with burnt aroma and well-balanced palate. At the lighter end of the IPA spectrum but beautifully crafted. Not sure I’ve tasted a better IPA in Australia. Necrobrew (5) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 22, 2014 does not count
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. mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 4, 2007
Dark copper-ruby with a very nice head. Surprisingly, the aroma is dominated by a dry, toasty malt character with very resinous hops present but playing a supporting role. Rich toffee malt character, hop character reminiscent of orange oil, and intense bitterness to the point of roughness. There’s loads of crystal malt, but it carries it well. This stuff really seems a lot bigger than 4.8%, in fact I did a double-take when I finally realised it was the case. It’s not at the extreme end of the IPA spectrum obviously, but like Emerson’s IPA it has enough guts (particularly bitterness) to earn the label. Quite simple, but loaded with flavour. Lovely stuff.
