KeefOz (1617) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - OCT 21, 2016
Poured a hazy dark caramel colour that shows nice coppery tones in strong light. One-to two-finger off-white frothy head that retained very well and laced OK. Carbonation moderate, lively and medium to coarse. Aroma of pine followed by earthy/musty notes and hints tropical fruits. Taste dominated by moderately strong pine plus sweet caramel malt and hints of citrus; sweetness not over-done; becomes more piny as it warms. Medium body. Smooth and slightly creamy with a lingering moderate strength nice bitterness.

Can. Pours dark copper with a nicely laced white head. Upon opening the can the hop aromas explodes out, following through with some sweet biscuity malts. Taste is upfront sweet biscuity malts with a balanced lingering bitter finish. Balance is superb, another great golden road IPA.

Great aroma - too malt heavy for me for top marks but the hops are superb - strong herbal pine - a good drink.

Sausagedog (11) - Scarborough, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2016
Pours dark amber in colour. Very prominent aroma, 1st comes the piney resinous hit, then toasted caramel. Smells sweet, and tastes accordingly, but not sickly. Nice bitterness, maybe a bit more would be nice. Nice malt backbone! Nice roasted flavour, with the hops to guide you through all the way. Would buy again. $9.99 a can from Celebrations Carlisle
