Copper pour with a decent off white head. Toffee, slightly spicy, light fruit aromas. Taste is grapefruit, pine, spice, resin, toffee. Not bad

From bottle in tulip. Pours mahogany with beige head and aroma of berries, earthy hops and spice. Caramel malt sweetness is tempered by hop bitterness on the palate.

CurlyJoe (254) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 10, 2016
Clear copper with white head. Honey, hops and rye in aroma. Bitterness in taste is not overwhelming, almost bread-y. Fresh and very easy to drink. Great beer to pair with a large variety of food.

LesArgen (362) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 8, 2016
The aroma brings out bread crumbs, honey, a little peach, some musk and a pinch of grapefruit. The grapefruit is strong on tasting, along with plenty of pine, pepper and some peach too. It’s a little thin though it has good length. A nice beer, but not a great one.

M_Sack (735) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 19, 2016
Bottle. Copper with creamy beige head. Plenty of grassy aromas, along with rye, resin and toffee like malts. Quite a rich mouthfeel, with grassy hops well supported by nuts, rye and citrus flower, underpinned by a strong toffee malt. Very nice beer.

Pours copper with a large head. Nose shows caramel, resinous hops and pine. Flavours include sweet rich malt with bready notes alongside piny and resinous hops.

mkel07 (6118) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 1, 2016
Bottle from Beer Cartel 290216. Great malty drop with plenty of toffee and vanilla kicking around in both the flavour and the aroma. Super big head to start with but it eventually settled down.

3.8
ComradeK (1237) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2016
Draught at The Quarryman’s Hotel, Pyrmont. Pours a clear ruby amber, with a small, lasting off-white head. The aroma has pine, floral and a little berry hops, as well as generous rye bread malt. Quite strong floral and pine hops up front lead into a full rye bread and nutty malt body, with balanced sweetness. Pine hops keep it fresh in the finish. A very nice red IPA.
