Tasty IPA but as with all IPAs your limited to only one or 2, its a fruity flavor with a hint of grapefruit at the back of the palate.

Dervock (1163) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle - golden pour with a frothy white head? Lots of resin and citrus aroma? Grapefruit and a dry lingering bitterness. Nice beer

Oakes (16648) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2013
Hazy tan-amber, thin head. Aroma is piney, rich citrus, rosemary, sage. Taste is actually a bit green and yeasty. The hops are on point - rich, pithy, with citrus liveliness, but the malts dont have a refined character.

Feral_Hop_Hog (27) - - SEP 7, 2013
Draught at The Norfolk, Fremantle. Unmistakable aroma of top shelf home grown marijuana. Mouthfeel zesty but not overbearing. Definite grapefruit on the palate with hints of pine and hops. Without a doubt one of Australia's best IPAs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

orange_3084 (127) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 26, 2013
Pours golden orange colour with thin white head. Aroma of passionfruit, grapefruit and pine. Fairly light body, nicely crisp. Hop flavours come through on the tongue, with very mild sweetness from caramel malts gently supporting a bitterness thats not particularly aggressive compared American versions of the IPA.

Kurtos (195) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy light golden colour. Aroma. can smell some nice passionfruit flavours. Taste. can mainly taste Pine, Mango and Passionfruits. Overall. a nice beer, but i feel as though the pine flavours mask the other fruity flavours too much for my liking, but none the less still better then most beers out there.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2014 An Aussie benchmark of the style that lives up to expectations. Perfectly balanced with a deliciously fruity taste.
