Bottle: purchased from Leura Cellars for AU$11 for a single. A 330mL can with a brilliant, fantastically designed label. A great-looking package.

Appearance: poured into my Innis & Gunn tulip glass - a vibrant copper-orange with barely any fine carbonation visible. A very thin white head hovers for a moment and settles to a thin ring after a few seconds. It'd be good to see a pour straight from the tap.

Aroma: an amazingly refreshing aroma of citrus hops up front, a tangy tropical fruit behind also. Lovely.

Taste: tropical fruits - pineapple, mango, grapefruits - some spritzy hops over the top also. A fantastic beer - well worth the having.

Aftertaste: the flavours linger through well but drop off sufficiently enough to allow a strong drinkability.

Mouth feel: the only area I figure this one could pick up is in the feel - it is a touch lacking. Still enough carbonation to bring the flavours through well - nice and complex.

Overall: a fantastic AIPA well worth the having. Nicely combined flavours of tropical fruits and citrus hops. For an AIPA, this one seems brilliant for a warm climate. Suits me find in Queensland, once I can get a loan to afford a case.

Pale Amber (9) pour with off white head. Smells like a beer mojito with lime and mint aromas. Tropical fruit and citrus with a minty chilies; citrus middle and minty/bitter/chilies finish. Moderate carbonation with tingle of alcohol and chilies on the tip of my tongue. Overall, another delicious hot mess from this brewer...lots of different flavors assaulting my senses in a most creative IPA. Well done.

On tap at Pub 365 in Las Vegas. Pours a copper hue with moderate frothing. Assertive aroma replete with hints of citrus and mango. Similar overall flavor profile.

CAN
Hazy pale amber with film. 3.75
Syrup and peppermint gum. 3.75
Slight sweetness, heat and minty ring, lime zest, and bitter citrus rind end. 3.75
Long chalky linger.
Medium, slight cling, dry. 4

Centennial, Amarillo, Citra; mango, mint, lime, chili.

BBD in 5 months - is this dead already? Aromatics are gone, sez Mike W., who knows it from back home. Either way, the hops get lost for no good reason. A bridge too far. 3.75

Pours a pale golden colour, slight haze. Head is cream-coloured, decently dense and foamy and sticking around OK. Looks alright.

Smell is lovely. Malty sweet with a touch of pearl barley and a big luscious fruit character from the hops. Apple/pear, lemon/lime and passionfruit combine with juicy pineapple. NZ hops just tickle me when used this well.

Taste is also very tangy. Touch of malty sweetness upfront before hosp take over. Grapefruit, lemon, passion and pineapple throughout palate before the cheekiest hint of piquant chilli on the back. No chilli flavour, just an unexpected heat that could really take you by surprise if you weren't told it was there. So tangy otherwise; tangy and good.

Decent body, slight tingle from the carbonation is a little too much. OK.

Such a tangy beer, could go down an absolute treat on a hot day.

ABV: 7.5% Best before January 14 - 2017.

A clear, copper colored beer with a two finger high, white head.

Nose: Wow! A lot of fruity hops! Orange, mango, pineapple, pine, resin and a little hint of chili.
Taste: The chili is more in the taste than in the nose. Mango, citrus, orange, tea, resin, malt and lime.
Mouth: Full body. Medium carbonaton. Dry ending. The heat from the chili stays in the mouth - Not to much though!

Great beer!
