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.

This pours a hazy gold, with a thin head. But oh that aroma!! Citrusy pine and pineapple & passionfruit bonanza! Lots of taste in the mouth, but not a great mouthfeel. Nice crisp finish to boot....

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2017 Nice smooth well balanced IPA. personally I would've loved if it had a little more bitter in the aftertaste

If IPAs are the cool kids, when a new one comes to your school named hop hog you assume it's going to be bitter as all hell, and, well, you're going to get bullied. But then 'the hog' turns out to be a nice guy; less jock, more Ferris Bueller. Damn, I feel conflicted. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

the small hog logo is pretty cute but the biggest hoggy is very big and good

Great clarity for an American IPA with good head retention, strong aroma with an interesting mix of spruce and citrus. Reasonably high IBU score underlies the bitterness, but it still does not overpower the spruce and citrus flavours. I enjoy buying this in a growler from my neighbourhood specialty beer shop.

Murky orange Amber body white head and lacing. Pine and resin aroma. Taste is semi-bitter, resin, some malts. Nice beer.

Packs a Hoppy punch to the limit of palatable. Layered palate with caramel finish. Good effort on bringing IPAs to the Australian market.

The most balanced IPA I have ever tried. Very fruity, not too bitter. Nice aroma. The best. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
