macca147 (571) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 11, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2017 330ml bottle. Pours a hazy straw gold with a lingering white head. Aroma: citrus and pine notes dominate. Mild tropical fruit aromas, including mango and melon. Taste: Citrus, grapefruit, mango and pine flavours. Hops dominate the flavour balance. Lingering bitterness. Moderate carbonation. Quite tasty. All in all, this is quite a good IPA.

Tap @ Hopscotch, Melbourne. A zesty hop forward IPA with a robust biscuity malt base. Orange, apricot, mango and pine notes. Finishes with a decent citrusy and resinous dry hop bitterness. Pours hazy amber with a lacing white head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fletchfighters (1590) - AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2017
330 Ml bottle

Clear orange amber color, slightly off white head. A bit short but good retention and body before falling to a thin collar, Strips of lacing.
nose is passion fruit, grapefruit, mango, citrus and lean biscuit malt body. Nose is nearly spot on.
Taste is mango and mango pancakes. Yum. Little hints of citrus and grapefruit but this is a mango beast. Good backing biscuit and caramel malt backbone, little harsh grassyness at the end but not a bad beer.
Clean and easy to drink. Good carbonation.

sm89walt (2082) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2017
Keg - Beer DeLuxe, Sydney. Poured a clear golden amber with a small and lasting white head. Citrus, pineapple, peach, mango and tangerine across both nose and palate. Malts kept low but with a subtle biscuity presence most notably for body. Medium in body and carbonation with a moderate to full length and intensity bitterness to finish.

rouhlas (3885) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JAN 23, 2017
330 ml bottle thanks to Aristotelis! Clear golden color with white head. Light hoppy and malty aroma, caramel, bread, citrus, orange, pine. Sweet and bitter taste like aroma. Medium oily body with soft carbonation.

ComradeK (1260) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 20, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium gold with a small off-white head, which lasts reasonably well and leaves decent lacing. Pink grapefruit, tropical fruit and pine resin hops sit over caramel malt in the aroma. Strong pine and grapefruit hops up front give way to caramel malt and light charriness in the mid-palate. The finish offers tropical and grapefruit hops. A complex, refreshing IPA, very tasty.

On tap at Forester's in Melbourne. Hoppy and malty on the nose. Pours a cloudy amber. Solid hoppy flavor - nothing exceptional but good for Australia! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hoppy, with citrus tones. Golden out of the tap. Hop bitterness builds and lingers in the mouth. A solid IPA. A go to standard
