330ml bottle into schooner glass. Amazing aroma! Smells like trees after rain. More than just pine or eucalyptus, a morning bushwalk perhaps. Golden bronze beer (translucent like frosted glass) with a thin white head. Light carbonation. Good body. Dank earthy pine notes with a bitter finish. Nice serious beer. varanid99 (1419) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 28, 2017
Amber, slightly hazy pour with a decent off-white head. Pine, mango, passionfruit, citrus aromas with a bit of malt in there. Taste is pine, orange, peach, toffee, decent bitterness on the finish, resin and a bit of light fruit. Nice. PabloZab (1770) - Wroclaw, POLAND - OCT 11, 2017
Bottle 330ml. Clear amber colour with small white-grey head. Aroma is mix of resin, tropical fruit and citrus notes, intense, aggressive with delicate malty note behind. Definitely resin bitterness, medium to high, intense but short in time with delicate sweet finish. Medium bodied with nice malty, a little bit toast note. Realy good, drinkable IPA where pine rules, aggressive but smooth at the same time. I'm glad to had opportunity to taste this beer. M_Sack (808) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2017
Bottle. Hazy orange/amber with a thin white head. Biscuity malt, muted pine, citrus and stone fruit. Big, luscious caramel and biscuit malt to begin, followed by a moderately bitter, oily pine, grapefruit, stone fruit middle. The stone fruit and malt provides an ever so slight sweetness, but the oily hops freshen it up. Very complex and different to a lot of IPAs currently being made.

Another ripping beer from Feral, there are loads of fruit aromas, including grapefruit, orange, lychees and peach plus light toast and fresh gooey white bread. The hops and malt are in beautiful harmony in the tasting, with a little spearmint adding to the flavour. It covers your tongue and lingers long in the back of your throat. What a pleasure.

Bottle sample at a tasting at troubles’ place. Thanks troubles. Hazy golden. Slightly stale fruity hops aroma. Flavor is rather dry with a light malty note, and nice bitter fruity hops. Nice. zvikar (6632) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - JUL 22, 2017
At Dror’s place, pours yellow with a small head, aroma of carambola, prickly mango, litchi, flavor is bitter with carambola, mango, litchi, medium bodied, nice doriangrey (149) - Diamond Creek, AUSTRALIA - JUL 19, 2017
Piney hop bomb! Dark amber in colour and very tasty. Much better than Ferals last few offerings. Fruity, malty toffee backbone but the resinous hops are king. Only minor quibble would be that it could actually hide more alcohol. Add an extra 1% and it would be amazing ALLOVATE (3095) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 12, 2017
Into a tulip at just on chilled. Looks the business. Deep, fiery orange and just shy of bright with a mountainous, looming off-white crown that laces some messy work down the glass. Tropical fruit juice nose brimming with mango, pineapple, blood orange and grapefruit, rose water and pine resin. Lighter than expected on the palate and dominated by a berry bubblegum flavour not present in the aroma. Quite creamy and soft in mouthfeel. All hops in its assertive and lastingly bitter back-end which sees ample grapefruit and blood orange dance around the bubblegum in the finish. So much length here. Sweet, juicy, biscuity malts and a touch of pine offer up more complexity. A little note of rubber in there is its only fault, making this ale almost flawless. It is lightly warming, aiding the wonderful hops and esters. Balanced to a ’T’, and deadly sessionable. I’d say this has put Feral back on my list of breweries to watch. Wonderful stuff!!

070717. Bottle from Malt Traders. I really enjoyed this beer and it has restored my faith in IPA’s as they all started to be getting a bit the same. Aromas of floral hops greet the nose and the beer looks sturdy in the glass. Medium to full bodied with a sweetish hoppy flavour.
