330mL bottle from Dan Murphy's as a gift. BB 22/Sep/18, drank 27/12/17.
Appearance: Amber body, white head dropping to a ring. 3
Aroma: Beneath the oxidisation are stonefruit, passionfruit, tropical and pine. 7
Taste: Very sweet initial Galaxy-like tropical/passionfruit hops. Then fades to dusty pale malt. Low-moderate bitterness unlike the IPA style. A little oxidisation with the bottle aged four months. 7
Palate: Low-moderate carbonation, fine bubble size. Above average viscosity. 4
Overall: More like a candy sweet summer/blonde ale; no hint of the 6.8% abv. Did the four mouth age turn this into an easy beer reminiscent of Stone & Wood Pacific Ale? Still enjoyed. 15 frankcolub (98) - Ashbury, AUSTRALIA - NOV 2, 2017

Tap at Mrs Parmas, Melbourne. Poured a hazy light amber with a thin broken white head and some broken lace. The aroma is pine needle, grassy citrus hop. The flavour is moderate sweet light bitter with a crisp, fresh, dry pepper spice, fruity hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. beer-yum (1952) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 29, 2017
Restrained citrus aroma in a hazy amber pour. Laid back hop forward balance with a juicy fruit body and sustained bitter finish. A pretty good example of the style (West Coast IPA) and definitely one of the best Australian ones.

(Bottle) Pours slightly hazy amber brown with short-lived white head. Lovely fruit salad aroma, with biscuity and rubbery hints. Nice palate, medium body with good carbonation. Something weird going on with the taste though - I get a dominant rubbery medicinal flavour which is quite unpleasant and overpowering (I guess this is the resinous part). There’s some nice bitterness in the finish. Taste too weird. (BB 07 APR 18) Feral_Hop_Hog (32) - - APR 1, 2017
Very very ordinary interpretation of an AIPA. Zero aroma and overly malty. Sickly and a bit too boozy and sugary. They should rename this 'Rough as Guts' because it really is pretty unrefined and classless.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2016 Pours deep cloudy orange with minimal head. Initial pineapple, piney fruit aroma disappearing quickly to light malty grass smell. Upfront sweetness, zing and some hops with back bitterness. Lingering caramel malts. Crisp and clean. A good example AIPA. Very enjoyable. TedE (1538) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 10, 2016
330ml bottle into glass. Cloudy golden beer with solid white head. Nose of caramel malt and citrus fruit. Zingy mouthfeel, bitter earthy taste. Finish is aspirin bitter with more nutty earthiness. Top quality, outstanding ale. KeefOz (1952) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - NOV 20, 2016
BB 18-FEB-17. Poured a translucent orangey amber colour with a one-finger cream foamy head that diminished slowly to a collar and laced OK. Carbonation moderate, slow and fine. Aroma of pine with hints of sweet tropical fruits (pineapple, citrus). Taste nice with strong citrus bitterness and pine and malt sweetness but not as much hops ‘bite’ as expecting. Light to medium body. Crisp and slightly dry with a lingering nice moderately strong bitterness. Quite nice.
