From a bottle. Big piney aroma, thick mouth feel, certainly lives up to the name with heaps of resinous hop flavours. Good stuff. Sevenlee (1846) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - FEB 27, 2016

Bottle. Poured a medium-dark cloudy amber with a thin fine head. Tropical aromas of pineapple and stone fruit. Rich enough without ever being sticky, and flavoursome, but lacked a certain something that might make me go and buy it again before other IPAs. Muggus69 (2601) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 5, 2015
330mL bottle from Slowbeer. BB 09/06/16
Hazy pale copper body, holds are rather solid white inch of head.
Pungent hops burst from the aroma - resiny, herbal, tropical fruity, guava, papaya, mango-sort of thing happening. Some toasted malt goodness in there too.
Full bodied, subdued creamy carbonation, bit of chewy malt in there too.
Really not what I was expecting on the body - plenty of malt here, biscuity, caramel, toasty, slight bit nutty, provides some backbone and sweetness for those resiny hops - notes of green mango & papaya, pineapple, passionfruit, kiwano(!?), dried leafy herbs. Lots of punch, bitterness high without being overly abrasive.
A bit different, hop combination I probably haven’t come across before and more malty goodness than most IPAs. Rosslew (320) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 29, 2015
A pleasant IPA at 5.6%. Not that punchy but super pine aroma brings in the drinker. Bitter middle but bit light at end. 1.5 std driks. 330ml.

From a 330ml bottle on 9/6/2015. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a small head. Has a pleasant light passionfruit nose. The flavour is fruity, featuring orange, mandarin, grapefruit and peach. There’s a reasonable dash of hops in evidence, if perhaps a touch short of bazooka status. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Basic but quite enjoyable.
