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.

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. Its a little thin though it has good length. A nice beer, but not a great one.

M_Sack (669) - 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.

mkel07 (5689) - 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.

ComradeK (1198) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2016
Draught at The Quarrymans 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.

From beer days monthly. Amber red colour a good head on pour that lasts. Smells of citrus. Taste of malt, sweet complex citrus with a dry silly smooth finish. Easy easy to drink.
