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.

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

jmgreenuk (9447) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 28, 2017
Tap at the Royston Hotel, Melbourne. Poured a slightly hazy straw colour with a thin white head. The aroma is malt, light grassy citrus hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a crisp, fresh, light fruit, woody light floral hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. This was one beer that I wanted to taste after having tasted the UK version brewed by Banks. This is a decent session beer and I’m pleased to say that the UK version is on a par with its Australian cousin!

macca147 (182) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2017
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.
