A: Very cloudy honey coloured beer, one finger head which is a distinct cream colour. Moderate carbonation, really fantastic lacing.

S: Fruity- peach, little bit of sultana. Sharp and sweet on the nose.

T: Bit of toffee sweetness, bitter aftertaste is really pleasant. Nice and hoppy.

M: Has a slightly silkier quality than other IPAs I've had, which I found to be really enjoyable.

O: A really enjoyable IPA, rich in flavour and really satisfying too.

Pours amber with a fading head.
Nose shows lots of floral and some tropical hops. Also some grassy notes and a fair bit of sweet clean malt underneath.
The grassy note follows as a flavour, too much dry-hopping perhaps? Other than that there's a fair bit of sweet malt and tropical fruit.
Could use more carbonation.

500mL bottle from Warners@The Bay. Lets see if it lives up to its name..

Rather turbid apricot with a modest near-white head. No real lacing to speak of as it falls over a couple of minutes to a slight ring.

Nose has decent measures of fruit-salady hop character, as well as a marmaladey sourness that I don't usually get from an IPA. It's relatively sweaty, with lots of candied sweetness, suggesting a fairly solid malt backbone. Not bad at all.

Ripe tropical notes of orange-mango and passionfruit initally gradually transition into mellow resinous pine and clean herbal freshness. Nicely balanced.

Tingly carbonation spreads the lightish body nicely. Bitterness is not particularly challenging, and mainly plays out in the mid-palate.

Although it doesn't exactly deliver the impact its name suggests, this is interesting, coherent and plenty drinkable. I really hope this is a year-round affair, as it would be a very respectable addition to the Australian APA/IPA category.
