3.58/5  rDev -7.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Golden in color, with an orange tint and a thin white head that persisted for a few minutes after pouring. Aromas of lemon and other citrus, as well as hops, which had a certain funkiness to it (not unpleasant) that may be the earthiness that other reviewers noted. It drinks clean and dry, with relatively mild citrus hop flavors and some sweet maltiness in the background. Good carbonation and mouthfeel. This is a solid beer that tends away from the overt sticky sweetness that some IPAs possess.

3.46/5  rDev -10.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12oz brown bottle purchased from Leura Cellars in Leura, Australia. That probably makes it grey as grey can be. According to the deciphered bottling date on the bottle, this was bottled in April this year, so not that old all things considered.

Pours a rather clear and light golden colour, with a fine head of white that persists in wonderfully streaking rings of lace. Carbonation is languid, forming streams of rather fine and slow-moving bubbles. Body is fluid and fairly light. Looks good though.

Nose is really very pleasant. Subdued, but flavoursome hops provide a little resin and pine, with a hint of some dusty citric characters as well. There's a touch of grain malt underneath, that provides a slightly savoury undertone. It's not as potent as it would be if it were super fresh, but it's reasonably good all the same.

Taste is a little more timid, and perhaps a little the worse for wear for its journey. Here the grain character is more pronounced, and it leaved the hops feeling a little bit flat and uninspired. Slight piney tingle sits on the middle, but this devolves to a rather generic bitterness at the end, mingled with a slight honey sweetness on the finish. Feel is smooth, and surprisingly, with a bit of weight behind it. Carbonation is nicely tempered.

Overall, it's a very drinkable IPA, even when a couple of months old. It's clearly well-crafted, and I look forward to having it super-fresh sometime. Until then, this grey-market import will do me nicely.

Poured from a 12oz. can into a Sam Adams pint glass

Flows into the glass a beautiful crystal-clear gold with lots of carbonation. A stiff pour yields a massive head, very foamy with big bubbles. It condenses fairly fast and leaves a a lot of lacing.

The aroma is quite nice. I get citrus, pine, a bit of rising bread, orange peel, grass and a hint of onion.

This beer tastes great. Layers of hop flavors. Juicy citrus up front, some pine and a nice lingering and spicy bitterness. As it warms, a little bit of grassiness and even a hint of onion. There's also some malty sweetness hiding in the background.

The mouthfeel is light to medium with a bit of stickiness.

overall, a really good IPA that I wish I could obtain on a regular basis.
