From Warners.

Pours a clear light amber. Coarse white head. Small bubbles visible. Nice spotty lace.

Aromas of the lot. Some citrus grapefruit, peach, mango, all in.... nice.

Taste is a complex mix of all of the above with a medium weight hop bite on the back palate. add in some pine resin. Complex and integrated.

Mouthfeel is the only let down, and I am not sure if this is usual with growlers. It is somewhat oily and undercarbonated.

Top drop - just not quite the same out of the growler as it tasted off the growler filling station.

Deleted previous review on this beer and decided to create another one as the ABV is higher.
Had on tap at Harts Pub. Listed as their IPA and at 6.8%

A-- Poured a near clear orange amber color. Half finger of white head that settled to a nice white collar. Good lacing through drinking. Not a lot of visible carbonation in the appearance.

S-- Fresh grassy grapefruit and pine. Good Carmel backbone to this. Lots of fresh hops in the nose and honestly a really good nose.

T-- Fresh grassy grapefruit, pine and citrus. Just enough Carmel to keep this balanced and somewhat soft.

M-- Full bodied. Spot on lower medium carbonation and oily. Nice long lasting finish. Well balanced beer.

O-- Well done US style IPA with touches of English to this. Only real negative is the lack of head and that the ABV is obvious. Otherwise one of the better Aussie made IPA's out there.
