Bottle: a standard 330mL brown bottle with a pretty average label.

Appearance: a slightly hazy light amber colour with smell amounts of fine carbonation across the profile. A small, half-finger white head drops fairly quickly to a thin cap, leaving good lacing.

Aroma: not much aroma, fairly demure. Light citrus, and what appears to be some sweet honey.

Taste: predominantly citrus with a touch of pine and earth, a lot more sweet honey. A nice ale, I certainly wouldn't call it a Pale Ale, let alone an IPA.

Aftertaste: some bitterness comes through, and I am sure it is a honey flavour. A bit tart on the finish.

Mouth feel: fairly heavy in the mouth for an IPA, with moderate but sharp carbonation.

Overall: I'm not quite sure why this is classed as an IPA - the flavours are pleasant but seem more of a sweet honey ale, rather than hop-orientated. Definitely, definitely not worth the AU$150 a case price. I have to admit I am yet to have a mind-blowing Yeastie Boys brew.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a creamy one finger white head with excellent retention and thick lacing. Aroma of orange family and lighter mixed citrus, piney and citrus hops, light bready malt. Flavor is distinct citrus hops, light lemon, mild grapefruit rind, faintly floral. The flavor seems thin at first, but develops slowly and finishes with several nicely balanced citrus, fruit and hop flavors.Medium bodied with good carbonation. Although the flavor seems subdued at first, the finish and aftertaste and surprisingly complex. A nice change from the standard American West Coast hop bill; not quite as challenging or rewarding, but pleasant and lemon citrusy. A nice off-beat IPA.
