Orange colour with thin white head, slight haze. Lots of fruit in the aroma, burnt pineapple and mango. Taste follows same fruit flavour, with a big clean bitterness too. Belgian taste come through in the middle after inital bitterness has disappeared. Slight cloying. Finishes bitter with orange and pine. Solid, sessionable beer that is a bit different from other run of the mill IPAs.

CAN. Golden pour with small foam white head.. A funky nose, banana & yeastie qualities while still being sweet.. Doughy malts, Belgian yeast throughout the beer, surprising sappy hoppy/malt finish.. Sourced Cape Cellars

On tap at the brewery, Margaret River. A copper-amber colour on the pour with a creamy off-white to light beige head. Zesty citrus, tropical hop, pine and yeast aromas. Similar to taste but with a distinct grapefruit character most noticeably in terms of finishing bitterness. Mid-weight with a soft palate texture. Juicy to finish with medium length and intensity.

Got some tarty stone fruit on the smell with a lolly milk bottle splash. Hoppy bitterness very early with a hint of Belgian yeast, orange and grapefruit. Hits the style. 5.8%. 330ml, 1.5std drks. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from cellarbrations super store hami hill. Pours a murky orange with a thin head. On the nose there is very subtle grapefruit with slight citrus hints. It's mildly carbonated with and low bodied. Taste is a slight lingering bitterness with loads of fresh cut grass, citrus and maybe some orange peel. Not too bad. Easy drinking, refreshing and sessionable!

Orange copper coloured beer with a lasting white head that laces beautifully down the sides of the vessel. Tropical aroma with a candy hint. Taste was hops all the way through, oily with a nice herbal character, hint of sour blood orange and earth, which personally I really enjoy. A nice session beer but more aimed at people with hop experience.

Bottle from mane liquor. Quite a hazy amber orange pour with little to no head. Low carbonation. Aromas huge on bitter grapefruit, grassy hops, pine needles and bubblegum. Taste is quite grassy and herbal upfront with a wack of bitter grapefruit and bubblegum at the back end. Bubblegum adds the sweetness to compliment the hints of caramel I'm getting. Pretty well balanced. Only down side is the carbonation but overall it works pretty well. Solid stuff from douth!!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours hazy, deep orange-amber with a white rim for a head. Nose shows very heavy grapefruit, quite herbal hops, some bubblegum and tangy blood orange. Smells very juicy. Taste shows some very tangy citric fruits with a big focus on grapefruit. It has that sour tang of bitterness which I like in my IPA’s. Quite grassy and tropical as it warms with some candied notes of sweetness. Really quite a lot going on hop-wise in this beer but it never becomes muddled at all. Palate has a slight warmth on it but I don’t mind that at all and it has a really good aggressive bitterness from the onset. It slowly calms down before some more bitterness takes over. Quite herbacious stuff. Balanced as they come. Really enjoyable beer

Deep gold pour, thick off-white head. Tropical & stone fruit, brown sugar on the nose. Flavour was bitter but with fruit and spice cutting through it. Best of the bunch, great for a warm Margaret River Saturday
