hoppy, more complex beer, but still with the signature Morrissey Fox citrus notes. Its subtle effervescence cuts through meats such as pork and duck from burgers to boar.

Brown 500ml bottle, best before 11th Feb 2011, drank and reviewed 24th Jan 2011. Poured slowly into a UK pint sleeve. Ive just put together a flat-pack bookcase, God how I hate trying to follow those crap instructions and diagrams: what should be a 20 minute job took me almost 2 hours, I need a refreshing beer, I hope this will be it. Looks fine, a nice pale/light amber body with a small but well formed white head of foam. Summer orchard floral smell, fruity and semi-sweet in an apple and pear sort of way (not that it smells like a cider). Add some biscuity, baked maltiness into the mix and you have a different, but interesting aroma from the glass. This isnt a very hoppy IPA at all, in smell or taste. The flavours more or less follow the smells, fruity, semi-sweet and not a lot of hop content coming through. Only full flower hops are used, according to the rear label, which is maybe why the floral feel runs through the review and tasting so much. I prefer the slightly sweeter brews, so this fitted my taste buds pretty well, suprised no one else has reviewed it yet, its available in a lot of the bigger supermarkets around the UK. Easy to drink and it calmed me down well after my long encounter with the bookcase. Id certainly have another if I had one.

Cask. Deep golden colour with small white head. Aroma is quite grassy and floral hoppy with some bready malts and mild crystal malts as well. Flavour is grassy and floral hops with mild earthyness as well as quite crisp maltyness. Pleasant.

On tap at Horniman At Hays in London. This one didnt look to appealing, with a watery yellow liquid. But the relatively high alcohol came with some flavour, mostly flowers, fruits, hops and honey. A decent real ale, easy to drink, mild but enough taste to make it interesting.

Bottle. Hyped up on the label and obviously on the shelf at Tesco because of its name rather than its quality.Some hops are there if you wait long enough and I am not sure of the Aussie connection.Didnt IPAs go to India and not Australia? Try it if you must.

Nothing aussie about it apart from a crap Gday ridden marketing blurb on the back. Pours out very, very fizzy but with absolutely no head at all, not even a hint. Nose is actually OK some malt & fruit. Flavours are unbalanced, body is thin & insipid, theres some fruit & malt & the alcohol at least gives a warmth but its pretty awful. It really is a disgrace that someone might buy this & think its representative of british beer. DO NOT BUY THIS

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2010 "Aussie IPA" ? What in the hell is that anyway? Nothing all that Australian about this ,in that its not some shithouse chemically, industrial Lager they make so well. .
subdued nose. Some light floral hop and orange zest ,but its quiet and unvibrant. Flavours, i get lots of orange ,but the skin of an orange. Chewey , caramel maltinesss..tangy hops and again zesty, yeah i hate that wanky word but its true here. some spice and lotta hop florals.
A decent ,floral "Bitter"
