Just sensational. Tried it the night they won IPA at the AIBA and it was so fresh and tasty. Well balanced and so smashable ANZUShophunter (727) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2017
On tap at Tap’d, PA Hotel, Booval. Pours amber with citrus and pine hop aroma. Tasty with malty sweetness balanced by orange peel bitterness on the palate. I hope this isn’t a one-off brew Malrider69 (181) - Central Coast, AUSTRALIA - MAY 18, 2017
Pours an amber to orange colour with a reasonably thick head. There is a strong aroma of hops and the taste is very bitter that is long-lasting on the palate. Overall a reasonable beer, but nothing spectacular. mkel07 (6575) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 1, 2017
010417. I had this on tap at Tap’d and the first thing that I noticed was the big boozy taste that this beer has. At 7.8% ABV this beer is no lightweight but I have much stronger beers that don’t seem as boozy. Looks good in the glass with an orange/amber colour and a decent head. Slick in the mouth with an aftertaste that goes on and on. colui72 (1192) - HONG KONG - MAR 11, 2017
Pours clear amber, with a medium white-off head. Not much lacing. Aroma is orange and citrus-like hops. Taste is a lot of orange, as expected, with resin and caramel. Booze well hidden, crisp, clean and well balanced. Excellent IIPA.

640 ml bottle from Brewcraft. Drank at home after the Egg Waffle festival. Pours a cloudy translucent orange-brown with a sudsy foamy white head. Smells of crystal sweetish malt, juicy hop, crisp, moderate peppery spice and zesty orange, booze. Taste is huge resin bitterness, spicy orange. Body is dry and bitter to start, finishes frothier and lightly spicy, bit of crisp sweet malt, lots of very fine carbonation. Lots of resiny bitterness, blood orange isn’t that obvious but still orange/citric and juicy. Palate is big but crisp and refined. Pretty straightforward but quite good.

Bottle from Brewcraft at home. Clear dark copper orange pour with dense white head. Aroma is pine and orange zest with sweet malt and some booze. Nice. Taste is zesty orange piney bitterness followed by sweet boozy malt. Not as orangey as I’d hoped but still quite good. Good bitter bite and warm boozy finish. Would get again for sure. davidezdonz (647) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - FEB 21, 2017
A 640ml bottle with a best before date of 30th November 2017. Poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. It was a clear copper colour with a slight orange hue, a one finger off white head that settles to a thin layer with sticky lacing. Aromas of pine, citrusy grapefruit and orange rind, pith and peel with hints of tropical mango and caramel malt. Tastes of citrus orange rind and pith with grapefruit peel bitterness, some resinous pine, with a good touch of sweet caramel malt and blood orange to balance. Medium bodied with moderate to light carbonation. Overall this was nice and easy to drink. A good balance between the hop bitterness and sweet-ish caramel malt. It’s probably on the border of being between an IPA and Double IPA, but overall, I’d say that it’s an enjoyable Double IPA. Devonbung (43) - - FEB 10, 2017
Colour is reminiscent of the label. Nice low-mid level carbonation. Finding the hit of the double IPA slightly hidden by the citrus sweetness. Rating the beer on the first glass poured from the 640ml bottle which I enjoyed, the second is bordering on syrupy. ShaneJ (903) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 9, 2017
Bottle from Page Bottler (Feb 2016). Light copper/orange, fine off white head, massive orange/citrus aroma and flavour, , piney, lychee, chewy, resiney bitterness, stealthy for 7.8%. Excellent.
