Bottle picked up in Buselton. Nice East Coast style IPA, mild hoppiness and clean malt profile. Amber body with small airy beige head. Mellow hoppy bitter finish.

Copper and hazy, with a few slow rising, small bubbles. Topped with a half finger of off white head.

Smells of oranges, caramel and pine, and a garlic, onion dankness, reminding me of a farm yard. Also very sweet on the nose.

Wow. Ok, now I know why this is Australia's top rated brew. Amazing punch of flavours which hit hard and finish fast. Its a fruit salad of oranges, melons, blueberries, and strawberries. They all chime in together, then go, leaving a slightly watery freshness, and a grapefruit pith bitterness. A solid caramel backbone as well.

Light feeling, but perfectly substantial, moderate, almost soda like carbonation.

Got this one in Australind, SW Australia, drinking it tonight in Perth. Excellent brew. A little weak in the middle of the palate, but maybe its an older bottle I got. Really solid flavours and body, its making a solid impression on me. August 21st, 2017.

I really liked this IPA really well made, malt balanced the hop hit. Really impressed with the upfront clean flavours and hop flavour. Only minor down to me is that the ending was a little out of balance and harsh (by a very very minor amount still one of the best I have had). I love a finish which smooths out which only a few IPAs manage (fresh dogfish head). I will be going back to this beer many many times however.
