Alluring citrus aroma in a copper pour. Surprisingly laid back flavor belies the strength. Nice brew - but nothing special in the end. ALLOVATE (3055) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 2, 2015
Really enjoying the beers from this brewer right now and this one’s no exception. At just on chilled and into a snifter. Soft pffft as the cap releases is followed by a waft of fragrant, fruity perfume. In the glass it settles a fiery copper with a lasting inch of off-white, rocky foam that daubs a thick lace. Looks the dogs bollocks. Along with the perfume is a musk of candy, toffee, pronounced grapefruit and strawberries with an underlying note of pine resin. Bitter as the gates of hell but balanced out by a hugely pungent perfume that flows up into the olfactories. Body is medium-light with a soft spritziness to the front and oiliness to the finish. Malt has a caramel and toasty flavour melded with notes of plum and raspberry. Lengthy and potent but as quaffable as they come. This is an interesting IPA. loved it!!!

From a 355ml bottle on 29/8/2015. Pours a clear dark golden/red with a small to medium head. The aroma features caramel and lots of orange. Take a sip and your presented with caramel and toasty malt, more orange and a touch of apricot. The hops are full on, sticky, lingering and resiny, and provide a great contrast to the malt and sweet fruit. Medium to full body with average carbonation. A really nice, well put together red IPA. mkel07 (6239) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2015
080815, poured a really strong copper colour with a light tan head that was full. Good balance of hops and malt in the aroma, not too much of either. Full bodied and packed with flavour. Drake (14059) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 5, 2015
