COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Its light orange-tinted amber in colour and features the stone fruit aromas peach and apricots youd expect from a beer given generous late kettle additions of Citra, Simcoe and Centennial hops. An initially sweet malty palate opens up to a fruity mid-palate flavour and an evermore prominent bitterness.

Tezminator (203) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 26, 2017
Herbal aroma with some stonefruit. Taste goes from tangy to proper bitterness. Quite complex palate starting with mild citrus followed by faint stonefruit notes. Finishes with herbs and spicy earthiness. One of the better Aussie IPAs.

danjs5 (207) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 19, 2016
From a can. Deep orange pour. Deliciously fruity nose. Plenty of hops and a great balance with enough bitterness and malt under all the hops and stone fruit and pine flavours. Solid body. Great drinking.

fletchfighters (1507) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 3, 2016
330 ML can Darker orange amber color. nice light tan head, excellent head retention and lacing. nose is herbal and spicy. Soft notes of stonefruit. taste is straight up pine and grapefruit bomb. Very dank. Massive bitterness to the point of aspirin like Taste. Bigger then the 6.2% indicates though. Feel is full of oil and resin. Very slick. Undercuts of caramel and stonefruit. Big grapefruit bitterness. If it were a bit leaner it would be sensational. One of the better IPAs made here.

mcberko (16927) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 31, 2016
330mL can, pours a cloudy dark orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out resinous hops, lots of oranges, and earthy notes. Flavour brings out herbal and spicy hops, juicy citrus notes, and earthiness. Fairy dry with a low residual sweetness. Ordinary but decently done IPA.
