Rich orange in colour with apparent haziness. The aroma is extremely pleasant with notes of plum, apricot, orange zest, and yeasty character. The body seems characteristic of an English IPA but it’s far more enjoyable due to its fruity hop character. Really enjoying this.
On tap at the brewery. Pours bright orange gold. Mango, grapefruit, tangelo, bit dank, bit herbal. Really quite nice. BeardedAvenger (1030) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2017
Keg at Craft Beer Co Covent Garden. Initial floral hints, before more hoppy resin and pine comes through. Hazy amber. Thin but frothy white head. Light through to a medium bitter. Citrus. A quinine bite. Medium bodied. Light. Soft carb. Long finish. Crisp. Good. craftyrocker (73) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 11, 2017
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. zacgillbanks (5423) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2017
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! jamiemac87 (194) - Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2017
Pours amber with plenty of sediment.
Big malty aroma.
Taste is malt with a hint of charcoal. Theres a little stoned fruit lurking somewhere. Finishes long; malt flavour stays with you for some time.
Out of trend IPA style but a welcome change.

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 @ Chez Sophie. Pours hazy amber, good off-white head. Aroma has big fruity orange. Taste continues with ostensible crystal malt and big fruity orange, caramel and apricot hoppage. Some grapefruit bitterness. Decent IPA. Tezminator (293) - 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 IPA’s.
