COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our tribute to the beers that once quenched the thirst of parched colonials at Admiral Gage’s East India station. This UK-style IPA is rich with caramel malt and overripe stone fruit character, balanced with a big bitter finish.

mkel07 (6546) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2010
330ml bottle. I was a bit disillusioned with Gage Roads recent offerings but this one hits the mark. Deep copper brown colour with a beige foam cap. Aroma is packed full of bready malty hops,along with caramel and toffee.Strong flavour that sits well in the mouth. Good finish and well balanced .

3.6
KansaiBeerLvrs (5501) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 30, 2014
420 yen, 5.4% Bottle from a small liquor shop midway between the Sky Tree & Asakusa. Bought to get rid of that Virgo beer’s memory and due to the fact I’ve never seen this "fine craft beer from Australia" in Japan before. Served in a mini Duvel type glass a deep orange-gold with a decent head & a fruity peppery nose with strong citrus & earthy notes - interesting. Medium to full bodied with a tongue scraping bitter mouthfeel - in a good way. The taste is again pretty different from IPAs I am used to, earthy, lemongrass, citrus, pepper & quite bitter. Pretty damn good, a pleasant surprise at a great price for Japan. Best before feb 2014 this must be a hoppy beast fresh.

hawthorne00 (4195) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 23, 2010
Bottle. Darkish amber with a medium light beige head. Aroma of toffee, peaches, grapefruit, a suggestion of pine. Sweet and a bit watery. Lots of rather plain toffee in the taste, decent bitterness with little in the way of the aromatics suggested in the nose. I like a substantial IPA, but this overdoes it and the malt is bland. Mediocre.
