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. jdpeebs (698) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 18, 2013
330ml Bottle. Lovely dark orange colour. Nice hop aroma. A great beer. On par with the Hop hog. Gramoit (494) - Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2013
Good beer, molds the Belgian strong ale with the IPA style well. One of the better Belgain IPA I have had, great stuff. imaragingbull (579) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 14, 2013
Pours cloudy amber orange with decent off white head. Aromas of Belgian yeast spice citrus, grass. Medium body,big malt sweetness, toasty nutty malts. Big hop bitterness, spice, citrus, grass. Malt lingers through the finish hops and yeast spice under the big malt finish mkel07 (6546) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2013
On tap at Archive Beer Boutique. Hazy honey amber colour with a low level layer of white foam. Lots of fruitiness in the aroma and also tropical fruit in the flavour with a sweet finish.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2013 On tap at the Alehouse Project. Interesting and complex, with balance. Aromas of caramel, dough, and peach. Taste is sweet, sour, and long lasting. Creamy, with a full body. Amber, with a frothy head. fletchfighters (1604) - AUSTRALIA - APR 11, 2013
Belgian Strong Ale when it says IPA on the label?? OK
330 ML bottle
Hazy orange amber color. Half finger of white head the fals to a collar. Spotty lacing.
Nose is a tropical fruit bowl with touches of bubblegum. Would thing more dry hopping with the aroma. Mango most prominent in the nose. >not bitter at all and that is OK.
Candied pine, candied grapefruit, and candied mango and bubblegum. Not bitter but flavorful. What bitterness is there smooths out the sweetness from the yeast. Dominant mango finish.
Slick, oily and a bit too sweet. Medium bodied and light carbonation. Just needs a bit more bitterness to cut through the sweetness but a solid beer that is well crafted. Maris (1611) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - APR 11, 2013
From a 330ml bottle on 11/4/2013 (ABV listed as 7.6%, not 7.2%). Pours a cloudy dark golden with a small head. Has a lovely aroma with is fruity, floral and a little hoppy, with a touch of Belgian yeast and honey. In the mouth, it begins sweet, with loads of tropical and stone fruit (I get a lot of pineapple, apricot and mango), and more honey. This is balanced by a firm, satisfying bitterness with some grapefruit notes. This is all set against an ever so subtle spicy/peppery background. The body is quite full and the carbonation relatively lively. This is a terrific, complex and unusual brew which comes together beautifully. Great work by Feral.

330mL bottle (feral’s first single batch). Pours slightly cloudy golden with a very small white head and a sweet doughy citrus aroma. Piney notes in the flavour with a big sweet hit that balances the bitterness nicely followed by the unique belgian yeast esters. Nice beer but not my style. grainmerchant (11) - AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2013
Aroma - Out of a XL5 tasting glass - Nice american hop aroma with a big bubblegum eastery yeasty explosion
Appearance - Slightly yeasty and a bright golden hue
Taste - Nicely balanced between high alc, belgian yeast esters and american hops and sweet candy sugar.
Palate - Great body and nicely balnced
Overall - A cracking belgian IPA that lives up to what it says it is.
