3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Oooo man. Light amber, small bubbly head that rings. Holy shit what a savage first 10 minutes put out by the Oilers vs the Stars. Malty biscuit, apricot, Rrgf, pineapple juice, maybe some caramel. The aroma dropped off big time but I still like. Slight flowery tropical note. Good taste - it’s got power but power that is under control. Huge hops balanced well with the same malts I found in the aroma. The grapefruit is in the twilight Zone between ruby red and unsweetened, perfume, Nelson memories, tropical, citrus goodness, last sip shows some spice. I dig. I think Armageddon was better, different beers.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml from International Beer Store, Perth. Pours a clear dark golden with a slight haze. A rocky off white head with excellent 1 inch retention that lasts for days. High tropical fruit and citrus (clementine) hop aromas with background cracker malt and some caramel character. Palate is medium body and medium-high carbonation and a chewy mouthfeel. Flavour leads with tropical fruit and subsides into bready bitterness, which lingers long into the dry finish. Incredibly dangerous at 8.5%. Glorious.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The Hop Zombie is a favourite from Epic, off tap it pours clear yet a dark golden colour. You can smell the strong scents of passionfruit and guava quickly and this is present in taste, thick resinous feel on the palate, this beer is a meal, for brains!
