330ml Bottle. An American hopped IPA. Clean and lasting head. Colour of orange tinted amber. Aromas of pear, peach and hints of citrus. Initially sweet flavour with strong notes of stone fruit, moving to a malty and very hoppy taste, with a well rounded and bitter finish. Very enjoyable bitter beer.

Pours a beautiful misty apricot, looks like absolute perfection and really intriguing, a great head of froff follows. The nose suggests a strong hop presence with fruity aromas. On first sip peach and blood orange come to mind with an a sweet apricot finish. The beer is beautifully bitter not to strong yet not boring. The malts give of a slightly caramel and creamy finish with the rich flavours lasting a while.
For any people trying to get into their IPA’s this is a great gateway. It provides a perfect insight into the composition of an IPA without ridiculous bitterness. Loved it, great work. Can and Bottle were great!

Can from Rehills, Newcastle. Cloudy orange-amber with a very thick white head of foam. It has an orange and zesty citrus fruity flavour followed by toffee, malt, pine and orange blossom on the finish. Excellent! davidm (2080) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 29, 2011
Tap. Great IPA. Aromas of caramel, grass, and pine. Taste is bitter, with sweet notes, and good length. Palate is velvety, with a medium body. Amber, with a frothy head. bmeup (678) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - FEB 13, 2012
Copper amber colour, lacey thick head. Stone fruit aromas, great mix of hops on a sweet malty backbone. Really surprised with this find, excellent example of a US IPA. Great beer.

330ml bottle. Heavy in the glass which is always a sign of a good beer. Orangey amber colour with a low even layer of foam that sits nicely. The aroma is full of big citrus hop notes that fill the nose, also some passionfruit in there? In the mouth it is full and rich with just the slightest hint of bitterness. Big brash flavour with a mixture of maltiness and fruitiness, a good blend that sits in the mouth well.

One of the best IPAs to come out of Australia. Pours with an excellent head, strong, long lasting flavour. JuanFernandes88 (39) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2017
Pours a hazy Orange amber. Aroma of stone fruit and malt. Nice sweet malty flavour balanced with a fruity hop taste. Goes down very easy with a nice bitter finish. Very easy drinking ipa and a little different to the norm. More malt flavours and aromas coming through ( the malt flavour reminds me of an amber ale ) and hop flavours that aren't the traditional citrus/pine.

330mL can from Boozebud, undated.
Appearance: Opaque amber. Laces well.
Aroma: Heavenly pine/stonefruit. This can must be quite fresh (unusual for Boozebud).
Taste: Pine/stonefruit/spicy hops, malty backbone, lasting bitterness. Grander than the 6.2%, just really really awesome.
Mouthfeel: Great viscosity, medium carbonation.
Overall: Excellent Aussie style IPA. Added to my favourites list. Note: I bought another can one month later from Boozebud but it was old and off, what a shame. maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours opaque amber with a small, sticky off white head. Citra and Simcoe hops are showcased nicely in this one. Passionfruit, mango, citrus all jumps out the glass at you. Very fruit forward and punchbowl like. All comes through in the taste. Vibrant fruit driven with a long, and nice grapefruit bitter finish. Very good beer
