3.61/5  rDev n/a
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a nice golden red sunset colour with good head and very nice lacing.

Nose is a little synthetic (alcohol?); grenadine, lime, pine, herbs, weed. Predominantly herbal. Some orangey citrus.

Taste is dry, overly herbal, some alcohol here too.

Mouthfeel is dry, herbal, quite bitter.

This is definitely an attempt at a West Coast style (D)IPA. It's dry, and has six hops and 113 IBUs listed on the label. Unfortunately, the aromatics here are quite tame- needs more dry-hopping perhaps.

Additionally, good American (D)IPAs should hide 7.8% ABV with ease. While mild, the alcohol is still there. Decent beer and nice work to Little Brewing for having a go, but unfortunately the bottled Australian DIPA realm remains fairly uncontested. (741 characters)

Pours amber with a large head.
Nose shows pine, resinous hops, lychee and massive sweet clean malt.
Flavours include lots of tropical fruit and fruit confectionery along with heap more of the crystal malt and some booze. (220 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

rich, fruity and delicious double IPA

aroma: strong orange citrus with orange peel, candy, grapefruit and slight pine

taste: first impressions - orange wine. Orange, candy, lemon, grapefruit, spice/pepper, pine with some raisins and vanilla, slight brown sugar and rum. Nice strong malt backbone - beautifully balanced.

Very impressive double IPA. (350 characters)

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Mostly clear golden colour with a smooth, off-white head. Fair head retention.

Citrus and lots of grapefruit here. Develops as it warms. Quite rich. Light malt. Interesting.

Moderately-sweet malt then a good hefty hop hit. Moderate bitterness which is appropriate without any harshness. Solid grapefruit and passionfruit notes. Clean and balanced DIPA. Not as good as when it was first out but still very tasty.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Quite solid.

A really good DIPA for Australian standards. Solid hop character which is supported by good bitterness. Not too much sugar. (591 characters)
