Hazy amber with a tight thin head, with perfect lacing.
Amazing Belgium yeast aromas, strong hop presence, spices, straw and a hint of bread.
Thick and chewy, heavy candy sugar and malts, with a slight toast. Hop resins mix nicely with the Belgium style spices, cutting through the sweetness perfectly.
The finish is velvety smooth but a great kick of alcohol and hop bitterness, a killer Belgium IPA.

Pours deep amber with a large fading head.
Very heavy phenols on the nose along with herbal and earthy hops and a funky Belgian doughy yeast note.
Very hoppy flavours but sticking to herbal, earthy and spicy varieties. Some subtle sweet malt and floral notes followed by an assertive but well-balanced bitterness.
Feels a bit syrupy. Lunkie (1963) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2013

A dark orange colour. Sweet orange in aroma. Delightful sweetness to the taste. A very good beer. pmuzz (400) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 17, 2013
Not a bad BIPA. Reasonable flavours and balance, nice but basic example of the style.

Pours a hazy amber with a subsiding white head. The nose is heavy on hops with pine, grass and some floral notes coming through. Belgian yeast characters come through in the mouth, providing a creamy palate and some vanilla and lemony characters. The hop bitterness is definitely there, but is more restrained than the aromas would suggest. Light to medium bodied, it leaves a lingering citrus and spice aftertaste. Complex and interesting - pretty great really. DeliriumT (542) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2013
Pours an interesting cloudy copper. Aroma is sweet and spicy. Flavour is very sweet caramel with punchy bitterness. Not sure that I would call it a Belgian ipa though. Not a lot of obvious flavouring hops

lovely beer - very cleverly designed by the brewers so that the zesty citrus of the hops links seamlessly with the peachiness of the yeast. there’s nice doughy belgian yeast aromas that mingle nicely with the vanilla of the cascade (im assuming). despite all that hoppiness in the nose the beer is light and fluffy in the mouth, with some maltiness but no malty heaviness, and without a nasty dirty high alpha kick at the end - a tasty combination of
peppery phenols and hop resin to finish. these guys know what theyre doing! reminds me a lot of dieu du ciel derniere volonte - another fruity and aromatic and approachable belgian ipa.
