Nice light hazy honey colour out of the bottle. Decent head with bit of lacing. Beautiful hoppy aromas dominate the smell with some citrus. Taste has a subtle nice malty sweetness before the bitter hop kick which is what lingers on the palate. Good carbonation and refreshing feel in the mouth before those hops pull your mouth back a little over your teeth. Overall a really good American IPA with full flavour and memorable hop levels. Definitely one I would have (and have) again.

Exceptional beer.

After returning home to Australia from many years spent in North America, it was very disappointing not having access to top tier IPA's whenever I wanted. This is the only beer (IMO) that comes close to those in North America.

Very similar taste, smell and feel to that of Fat Tug IPA.

Highly recommended.

I stumbled onto this beer in Perth, Western Australia. It was the best IPA I'd had after a month of touring Australia.

This was a strange one. Big whack of hop and citrus and late night pub urinal. On tasting I felt it improved, though I now know why they stuck a pig on the label. C'mon, there's a meat taste in there...Not to say I didn't enjoy it. It won't become a regular-run thing, but I do enjoy the cut of its trashy jib.
