A great dollop of ironbark honey sweetness up front gives this red IPA a nice herbal hit right from the start. It’s a little bit biscuity. A little bit of orange citrus. Finishes with a lingering tartness that rounds out a pretty decent beer. Full flavoured red I’d definitely visit again.
Buy again: yeah, but price could be a barrier
