look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance -
Cloudy, yellow colour, fine suspended yeast particles. Pours a thick 2 finger head which dissipates to a thin film after a few drinks. Leaves plenty of lacing. Moderate carbonation.

Smell -
Smoked, roast, ash, bushfire, hops, leaves, orange, mandarin, citrus rind, pepper - plenty of hops and spice.

Taste -
Citrus rind and hops with a peppery bite - a dry flavour. A yeasty brew, with hints of spice including coriander and cloves. Finishes with an earthy grapefruit bitterness, and strong hints of alcohol.

Mouthfeel -
Lively carbonation, but not difficult to drink. Medium body, creamy feel due to the carbonation and finishes clean and dry. Still refreshing despite its dry flavour. Carbonation leaves you feeling slightly bloated though.

Overall -
A strong, full-flavoured brew. Has a quite unique, earthy and peppery flavour on top of the usual hop bitterness. On the bitter side of the scale, and not for everyone, but offers something different to enjoy. Not the easiest drinking beer out and its heavier carbonation bloats slightly. However, good if you're not drinking many, and would pair up well with a spicy vegetable curry, stir fry or some grilled kangaroo which has a charred and grassy/gamey taste to match.
