On tap. Schooner. Pours a deep amber, with a white head. Aroma: moderate to strong citrus, pine and earthy aromas. Taste: a good balance of citrus and pine flavours hits the palate followed by a pleasant lingering bitterness. Very well balanced and full of flavour. The hops dominate the brew more than the malts, but there is still a pleasant biscuity malt flavour to the beer. Great with spicy food, barbecued meat or as a stand alone drink. Probably the best Australian IPA.
