Fresh hops. Really fresh, bit of sweetness. Lingering hop aftertaste. Refreshing. Not too bitter, just the pleasant bitterness of the hops. Medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A decent IPA with sweet fruit straw aroma. Floral, pine, citris flavour and light bitter balance. Light palate and slight malt. Medium body. Well rounded, quiet refined at times.

DSG (12329) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 22, 2016
Bottle sample at a tasting at Maxs place. Thanks Stas. Hazy golden. Aroma of citric hops, slightly stale. Flavor is a bit sweetish with malt, and bitter citric hops, a bit stale. Medium-bodied. Decent, could be fresher.

Copper pour with huge off white head. Nice nose of pine and citrus. Flavor is a bit chalky and muddled with malt, but nice punch of citrus.

Tezminator (80) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2016 A great beer. Has all the elements of a great (light) IPA. Reminds me of some strong Californian Pale Ales. Citrus and pine. Moderate bitterness. Very drinkable.

neongolden (1285) - Linkping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2016
(330ml bottle from BWS Surfers Paradise) Pours clear pale copper with an average white head and no lace. Aroma is pine-forward hops up front with citrus and peach in support, a decently solid malt backbone with light caramel and biscuits. Pretty fresh pine needle and grapefruit peel hop flavours, some floral qualities and a moderately strong malt base with a bit of biscuit and moderate caramel sweetness. Finish is dry with moderate pine resin bitterness. Medium bodied and slightly sticky with average carbonation. Nothing revelatory maybe, but quite a very solid IPA compared to the typical selection at a BWS store.

Ivanhoe Manly. This is decent, nothing more. Basically a replica of the sort of US IPA folk got excited about 15-20 years ago. Hazy amber colour, decent off white head. Hoppy, citrusy aroma. Medium body, with again, a lot of citrus (little bit tropical fruit, some lemon). Quite hoppy as expected and the finish is hops dominated and reasonably dry. Some bitterness, not much maltiness. Pleasant and drinkable and a good go to when faced with Hahn Superdry, but ultimately not a lot going on.

Citrus and pine on the nose, medium body. Nice warming and mild sweetness in the finish. Some nice subtle resiny character left in the mouth. Whatd you hope for from a quality session ipa

Bottle. Pours a copper colour with a white head. Aromas of pine and stonefruit really hit me. There is a lovely bitterness with a strong malt backbone. The flavour stays in your mouth well after each sip. Balance is perfect. This is the best Australian IPA Ive had, a strong household favourite and we cant wait to try it on tap sometime. Excellent, well done.
