Pours murky amber with thin white head. Nice fruity aroma of peaches and melons with some spicy floral notes. Not much taste to speak of. Clean, with a touch of bitterness. Overall pretty refreshing, but lacking outstanding features once aside from a nice aroma. KeefOz (1916) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2014
Bottled 02/10/2013. Poured a cloudy amber colour with a two- to three-finger off-white head that retained very well and laced as suds on the glass. Carbonation moderate and fine. Aroma dominated by sweet floral hops plus slightly sweet malt and a trace of citrus. Taste nice sweetness and mid-range citrus bitterness. Light body. Smooth with a long dry bitter finish. Quite nice. LesArgen (376) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 16, 2014
Lovely. By far the nicest of the Bridge Road Single Hop beers. The aroma is a mix of melon, citrus, resin and even some spearmint. In the mouth, the Ella has a very pleasant sweetness that helps offset the tart citrus taste. Very nice. Just what you want in an IPA. varanid99 (1341) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 22, 2014
Orange gold pour with thin head, much like the others in this series. Apricot, floral aroma, malt also peeks through. MAlt underneath, more so than the others in the series; hp flavours are a little more delicate - floral, citrus. Quite dry finish, bitterness persists nicely Kurtos (222) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours a Murky Orange.
Aroma. Pine needles, with a stonefruit backing.
Taste. Mainly a Piney Taste, backed by a slight fruity sweetness.
Overall. Very Similar to the Vic Secret, but not as Strong.

Small white Lacey head on amber body. Floral aromas. Clean hop finish with spices to the fore.

Chocolate and floral aroma. A bit of metallic finish to the bitterness, but a long finish at that. vinhol (346) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 2, 2013

330 ml bottle. Pours a deep golden colour with a tight white head that clings to the glass. The aroma is delicate mix of floral, pine, citrus with some tropical fruit. The malt profile has taken the back seat but lends the right amount of malty, caramel tastes. Mouth feel is smooth with a small amount of lingering sweetness that is not too overpowering. A great beer to sit and enjoy on a summer evening. ShaneJ (910) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 29, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2014 Bottle from Slowbeer (previously known as Stella IPA). Bright mid-amber, tight white head, floral, tropical fruit aroma, dusty, mild bitterness, bready malt, some residual sweetness. Quite good.
Re-rated March 2014: Quite a lot more pine characters, higher bitterness, less sweet, strong grapefruit/pine aromas. Liked it better now.
