COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A couple of centuries back, IPA was made strong and hoppy to protect it on those long voyages from England to India. These days, we just make it that way because it tastes great.
An intensive five-stage hopping process delivers a rich, robust character, smooth flavour and an inviting aroma. So, while it has all the mighty BAM of the original, its surprisingly well balanced a bit like our skateboarding elephant.
Five malted barley varieties, five natural hop varieties, fruity ale yeast and water.

Bottle from Blackhearts&Sparrows. Great, original taste. Aromas of berries, caramel. Taste is sweet, with light tartness, and long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Blonde, with a frothy head.

Nice aroma of passion fruit and pineapple as well as faint floral notes with resin. Taste is floral hops, caramel and sweet honey-like fig. Nice moderate lingering bitterness. I do not usually like sweet IPAs, but I guess this is the exception. An excellent beer.

650ml bottle. Cracker of an IPA. Big bright orange colour with a thin white head that settles to a lacing around the glass. Strong pine and floral hop aroma that fills the nose and sets you up for what is to come. Flavour is very hop forward with a resinous aftertaste on the palate.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2013 Bottle from Slowbeer (640mL). Slightly hazy light orange colour, very appealing in the glass. Aroma dominated by pine, subtle grapefruit and lavender (maybe, something floral anyway). Really nice hop flavours, balanced by some good malt sweetness, some warmth from the alcohol. Really liking this one. Second helping from a 330mL bottle from Plonk. Same comments, think I enjoyed this one even more.

Lovely floral hoppy aromas. Pours a cloudy copper colour and has nice citrus flavours. An excellent IPA that is very easy to drink.

Davros (3054) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2013
Pours amber with a fading white head. Nose shows sweet malt, biscuity and bready malt with earthy, resinous and floral hops leading to orange marmalade characters. Very similar flavours. Biscuity and bready malt, lots of sweetness followed by resinous hops and marmalade. Carbonation is a little low. Real nice understated English IPA.
