look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle: a standard 330mL brown bottle with a standard macro label. Purchased from Leura Cellars.

Appearance: pours a hazy amber orange with only the slightest fine carbonation visible. A small white head slowly drops away, leaving a solid lace.

Aroma: a decent aroma of earth and pine hops with some fruit backing. Very enticing.

Taste: virtually the same as the aroma but a bit more moderate. Mostly hops, the fruit fades away a bit. Still quite refreshing.

Aftertaste: the finish comes through a bit dry, still with the pine hops.

Mouth feel: a lighter body with slightly more than moderate, spritzy carbonation.

Overall: a refreshing IPA with all the normal fruit and pine hop characteristics. The only problem being that for AU$130 a case of 24 x 330mL (2014), this is nowhere near worth it. It is a nice IPA, but no better than others for half the price. (865 characters)

Teku glass.
A: Straw yellow/light orange, hazy with big white medium lastin head. Good lacing.
S: Tropical fruits aroma (passion fruit, mango), sweet citrus hoppy aroma (mainly orange), some low pine and grassy aroma - mainly in the background, also noticable quite big malt backbone - caramel, bread, low biscuit;
T: moderate bitterness - noticable some pine, grassy and light herbal flavours, bitterness is moderate and not too long, it's well balanced with sweetness and malty character. Definetely dry and bitter finish.
M: dry beer, medium body, medium carbonation, light alcohol warming
O: Nice beer, but there are lots of nice beers. There's not too much bitterness as for DIPA, the bitter character is also quite short. Amarillo hops are noticable by it's indirect sweet charcter - in this case it should be balanced with some bitter hops. Nelson Sauvin adds refreshing and dry character. Aroma is definetely better than the taste. What I like is this is really refreshing and drinkable beer. (1,001 characters)

Pours hazy amber with a small head.
Aroma of tropical fruit, floral notes, pineapple, spicy hops and sweet clean malt.
Very fruity flavours; pineapple, passion fruit, floral notes, low malt. Assertive but balanced bitterness.
Needs more carbonation. (250 characters)

Awesome unique beer. Full of citrus fruits, pineapple and a little mango. Dangerously easy to drink with good level of carbonation for english bottle conditioned ale. Not much in the way of malts, but this in no way takes anything away from the beer.

Over all a very good beer thats only let down by the clarity. (313 characters)

Hazy, medium yellow pour with a moderate head. Aroma exceeds the taste. Surprisingly less bitter than expected. Dry finish. Decently crisp product. (147 characters)
