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.

Smells very citrusy almost like pineapple juice. Taste is a hoppy bitter niceness with hints of citrus.

Golden colour, aromas of passion fruit and lychees, low carbonation, good lacing, very easy to drink, my knees are wobbling slightly from drinking too fast, what an amazing beer, well done feral

A standout beer for me. Was taken back by this - found it at a BWS (large chain) and so expected a mediocrity to it that you so often find with other brands. This is different. This is out there with fruity flavour profile and good hop hit - I love this beer as it really is a treat by itself. I normally pair my pair with a good meal,or chocolate. Not this - this stands by itself and I wouldnt want anything messing with it. To me the passionfruit flavour dominates on this - it could be a touch more malted - but have noticed this comes and goes in batches.

I love this beer. Aroma and taste of fruit punch bowl with the right amount of malt. Not a strong IPA. Very drinkable.

[330ml bottle, courtesy of Sevare] Clear golden beer, with a thin white lacing. Soft, sweet, floral aroma. Grassy on the palate at first, slightly citric and lemony, with an increasingly dry, bitter finish. Good stuff [21062013]
