COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Judged CHAMPION BEER at the 2016 Australian International Beer Awards.
The culmination of months of collaboration between the entire brew team. The project: to create the best tasting New World pale ale possible.
Huge aroma of tropical nectar ranging from pineapple, to passionfruit, to guava. Sweetness from the tropical fruit character is perfectly balanced by robust bitterness.

Let's call this 'mainstream' craft and not afraid to say it is very good. Slightly old world, creamy, toffee malts; modern twist; quaff-able in the extreme with it's smart dry structure.

samsomuk (511) - Bridgwater, Somerset, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2018 330ml bottle sampled during Aussie trip 2017-18. Pours lightly hazed golden amber with a white head. Aroma of citrus, peach, mango, fruity hops. Taste is dominated by moderate sweetness & caramel. Light bitter, some resin, tropical fruits. Medium body, carb was fine. Light bittersweet finish. Too sweet & too much caramel for me

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2017 330 ml bottle. Pours a dull copper orange hue, with some white froth which recedes quickly. Aroma is tropical fruit, grapefruit, mango, peaches, over resin and caramel malt. Taste is fruity sweet to start, followed by balanced resin and pine bitter. Medium bodied, below average carbonation, but goes down very smoothly and sweetly.

I would have this beer again if there was nothing else available. Drinkable, but not particularly memorable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This would be a very nice beer if it had more aroma to it. A bit too plain. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ANZUShophunter (721) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 19, 2017
From bottle in IPA glass. Pours a nice rich amber with two finger head and fruity hop aroma. More malt-driven than most New World IPA’s with taste of nectarine and apricot leading to a rather sweet finish. Interesting beer on the fringe of several categories, IPA and APA among them, but unique among Aussie ales I’ve sampled.

3.8
CurlyJoe (427) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2017
Hazy orange with some thin film white head, lacing. Aroma of sticky fruit, mangoes and lychees. Follows through with much of the same to taste. Not a lot of bitterness, fruity sweetness shines in this beer. Very drinkable and refreshing.
