Light in smell but nice copper colour. Grapefruit on the nose. Citrus taste but has a quality feel about it. Bit nutty too. Has a bitter finish.

From a 640ml bottle on 9/12/2013. Pours a clearish dark golden with a small head. Features a light fruity aroma which is very subdued by IPA standards. Flavour wise, the story is the same. Nothing objectionable but nothing particularly interesting. There’s a bit of nutty malt, a fair bit of sweet citrus and tropical fruit, and a medium, slightly lingering hop bitterness. Has a medium to full body and average carbonation. Easy enough to quaff but a bit forgettable. Sevenlee (1846) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - DEC 1, 2013
Pours a clear amber colour with a small white head. Aroma is malt, grapefruit, citrus, pine, fruits and hops. Taste is medium sweet of fruit and citrus leading to a hoppy finish. Pretty decent effort. davidm (2081) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle from Dan Murphy’s. Aromas of caramel and grass. Bittersweet taste, with long length. Very well balanced. KeefOz (1890) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - NOV 17, 2013
BB 24/08/2014. Poured a slightly translucent golden amber with a one- to two-finger white foamy head that retained OK and laced with clingy spots. High carbonation with medium to large bubbles. Aroma of citrus hops. Taste initially of fairly sweet caramel followed by slight grapefruit and a good hops tanginess. Taste, while strong, is not as intense as the aroma led me to expect. Medium body. Slightly bitter finish. A good example of an IPA that went down well.

Gold slightly cloudy pour with a creamy white head. Smells of peaches, grapefruit; tastes pretty much the same. Very little bitterness. A little weak for the style but not bad sinkas (293) - Perth/Fremantle, AUSTRALIA - NOV 1, 2013
