2.83/5 rDev -23.5%
Pours a half finger white head over a golden hazy body. Clumpy lace.
Aromas are moderate,wheat, citrus. Dry.
Taste is dry and sharp. Wheat flavours up front, and a dry hop bitterness on back. Earthy notes. Some grapefruit, which builds to be dominant Not completely at one with itself IMHO.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and needs more carbonation to lift the overall beer and give zest for style.
Overall, too dry and unbalanced for me overall. Doesn't need to be a 6 percent beer, either!

330ml bottle purchased from Slowbeer in Melbourne.
Pours a mildly hazed golden yellow colour, with a full and pretty persistent head of fluffy white. Head is slightly flat, although pocked with larger bubbles. Lacing is excellent. Very slight, but relatively large-bubbled carbonation when tilted. Looks pretty decent.
Nose is luscious and fruity, with deep sweet mango characters melded with something spicy and organic. I believe there's a hint of the wheat coming through, which gives a rounder, sweeter character to the hops (hence the mango). But there's a sharpness as well: a bit peppery, a bit green and bitey. It's a nice way to cut through but support the sweetness. Nice stuff.
Taste is clean and bright, with a positive hop character through the centre of the palate. Mild wheat characters give a slightly more acidic tone than might otherwise have been there, and allow a peppery, slightly herbal character to dominate. It feels slightly thin, although that maybe accentuates the hops a bit more, and leaves it less filling and more refreshing.
Overall, this is pretty good stuff. Clean and bright, with a really solid hop character to it. The spice and bite of the hops does tend to overwhelm after a while, but given it's a showcase of the hops, that can easily be forgiven.

Pours a nice slightly cloudy mango. Good head/lacing.
Smell is fruity mango character. Then a kind of rich botanical herbal smell.
Taste is straight off mango. Finishes with a solid and moreish hop bitterness, verging on the salty. More subtle-ish herbal character.
Mouthfeel feels decently thick and well bittered.
A highly enjoyable beer, amenable to the Australian summer and whose slightly higher alcohol percentage belies its drinkability.
