look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Bottle: a stumpy 355mL brown bottle with a nice old-school label.
Appearance: pours a crystal clear golden amber with a decent off-white head that sits at one-finger. Minimal lacing.
Aroma: an intensely nose of orange citrus, pine and grass hops. There are some earthen characters in the background too, which is nice.
Taste: follows from the nose, and I am happy to report that unlike most IPAs that have a strong nose, this one also has an even more intense flavour of pine and citrus. Those earthen characters and some malts are around in the background again.
Aftertaste: hangs about for quite a time, with a touch of alcohol to boot. Plenty of hop bitterness. Nice.
Mouth feel: a moderate body with plenty of carbonation.
Overall: a particularly good example of the American IPA style. Plenty of hops up front with just enough presence from the malts and warming alcohol to round it out. At AU$75 a case of 24 x 355mL (2013) it is better value than plenty of less impressive options.

First taste was served on tap at a July 4th fundraiser picnic. Served in plastic, disposable 16 ounce cups. While the serving didn't allow a complete feel for the beer, the citrus nose caught my attention. The beer's lighter body made it a worthy, refreshing accompaniment to the BBQ. Since then,I have had it served in both 12 oz bottle and can. Both of these servings were equal with no difference in qualities of the beer. A: golden color, poured a moderate head. (Bottle served in a pint glass and can was poured in an white wine glass). Smell: citrus nose (refreshing). Taste: citrus, grapefruit up front. Mild bitter finish. Mouthfeel: effervescent, no heavy hop after taste. Overall, I enjoyed this beer.
