3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - pours orange with a white head. Aroma is grass, resin and citrus. Taste is bit of hop and citrus with a long lingering dry finish.
Pint at The Local Brewery, Croydon, Victoria. Pours hazy light amber with small white head that laces. Aroma is pineapple, citrus, melon. Not strong but adequate and pleasant. Flavour is very nice fruit and pine. Malt is subdued but noticeable. Crystal caramel sweetness from the malt is there. Taste is well balanced between bitterness and sweetness. Some residual bitterness mainly on the front and mid palate. Mouthfeel is full and smooth, almost creamy. Overall an well balanced and very drinkable IPA. The alcohol is solid but carried well in this big beer. jmgreenuk (10519) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 20, 2018

Tap at Royal Albert - shy on the nose but a decent hop kick - well balanced - nice bitter edge - doesn’t blow me away but is very easy pleasant drinking. doriangrey (143) - Diamond Creek, AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2017
A pleasant combo of resin, spruce and hoppy fruit. Lingering bitterness, recommended

Bright orange gold beer with haze and creamy white head. Some light malty sweetness with hop fruit spice flavour. CurlyJoe (427) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 20, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2017 Very light in colour with thin white head. Aroma of fruit. Some bitterness in taste, though mostly tropical fruit driven. Not much of an IPA, more of a pale ale. Still a very agreeable beer, and dangerously drinkable at 7%. Dandm (125) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 25, 2016

330mL bottle from Slowbeer. Brewed on 31.03.16
Bright orange gold beer with haze and creamy white head.
Juicy hop nose - bags of orange juice & zest, ripe rockmelon, grass, lychee & unripe mango, touch of toasty malt.
Smooth, somewhat creamy sort of texture, full bodied without giving away much of that big abv, moderate-to-low carbonation.
Persistent punchy hop character on the body - mandarin, rockmelon, lychee, bitter orange, light caramel & toasty malt. Tremendous lingering bitterness with plenty of grass, herbal character.
Darn good stuff!
