UPDATED: AUG 22, 2017 Man I just don’t get this beer for some reason or another. Had it multiple times at different venues and bottleshops. Keep hearing how good it is so keep buying it. Ok, that said. Thin body with almost no aroma maybe a light woody, nutty aroma. Taste is just bitterness and no depth light malt body maybe Pilsner malt and light crystal but no malt to back up the bitterness. An IPA I would give to a non IPA drinker orpale only drinker as definately not a true American style IPA. There’s a sea of India pales put there and I would absolutely not put this in my Aussie top 20. Just don’t get this one at all. I wouldn’t say it’s insipid but every time I’ve had one I haven’t finished the can. Give me their double, pale hopco or even the golden era before I touch this again. drjoeng (1325) - SINGAPORE - AUG 9, 2017
Poured out gold. 8 SRM.
Nose has pronounced pine aroma. Other aroma notes: hint of sweat sock funk, fresh grapefruit juice. As it warms, there is is a pleasant spicy aroma note as well that suggest parseley, with elements of chervil tops and maybe hint of mint. Citrus and mint are aromatically compatible.
Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate is sweet with graham cracker, pie crusts, bread crusts and honey wheat toast. Hop flavors are orange peel, fresh cilantro, sap with either pine or oleander sap. The fact that the hop flavor tends to be pretty consistent is testament to this being a single hop IPA.
Overall, you get a sweet a bitter flavor ride without the swee being too thin which tends to be the case a lot of the time. Another component that deserves mention is the citrus peel flavor with lemon and grapefruit being most obvious with a citrus oil spicy tang.
A juicy, ride with a bold citrus peel bitter.

Mosaics have a long history, starting in Mesopotamia in the 3rd millennium BC. Pebble mosaics were made in Tiryns in Mycenean Greece; mosaics with patterns and pictures became widespread in classical times, both in Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome. Early Christian basilicas from the 4th century onwards were decorated with wall and ceiling mosaics. Mosaic art flourished in the Byzantine Empire from the 6th to the 15th centuries; that tradition was adopted by the Norman kingdom in Sicily in the 12th century, by eastern-influenced Venice, and among the Rus in Ukraine. Mosaic fell out of fashion in the Renaissance, though artists like Raphael continued to practise the old technique. Roman and Byzantine influence led Jewish artists to decorate 5th and 6th century synagogues in the Middle East with floor mosaics.

Poured a crystal clear mid-amber with a two-finger white frothy head that retained very well and laced well. Carbonation moderate to high, lively and medium to coarse. Aroma strongly of pine plus grapefruit to a lesser amount, nice hints of tropical fruits (passionfruit, pineapple) and slight caramel; alcohol well hidden. Taste of grapefruit, orange, tropical fruits and a sweet malt background with pine becoming more at the end of the taste; moderate bitterness with a good balance between bitterness and fruitiness; alcohol well hidden. Medium body. Smooth, crisp and slightly dry with moderate bitterness on a lingering finish. Easy drinking and very nice. Shark_Pants (757) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 12, 2017
500ml can BB 15 Mar 2018. Nice clear amber with well formed white head. Lovely fresh tropical fruit and citrus aromas - particularly passionfruit, tangello, rockmelon, pineapple, along with light caramel notes. The taste has strong grapefruit, some passionfruit, pine, paw paw, cracker biscuit malt, dry and bitter finish. Light to medium bodied and highly drinkable for 7% ABV. Cracking IPA and a very good example of a simple recipe producing a great beer. JuanFernandes88 (59) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 7, 2017
Clear straw colour with a thin white head. Aroma of dank hops, tropical and stone fruit with some pine. Initial fruity taste leads to a dry bitter finish.

The obvious use of mosaic hops produces a big pungent dank hops aroma full of orange, pine, floral and earthy tones. Pours a light hazy yellowy amber with thin head. Big upfront hops and perfect bitterness with decent balanced background malts producing well rounded sweetness. Very clean and straightforward. Bold hops and easy drinking. This is a great beer varanid99 (1257) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 30, 2017
Golden pour with a tight white head, massive orange, grapefruit, pine aromas with a nice bit of malt under it all. Big juicy orange, passionfruit, pine, the bitterness is more restrained than expected but cuts through nicely at the end,
