Looks a treat.Poured a mahogany amber with a nice dense head. A bit over carbonated. Floral and citrus on the nose, but muted. In the mouth ii is med to full bodied with a light to medium hop bite. A bit subdued for what they are aiming for. Solid.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy amber pour with a white head that quickly shrinks to surface cover. Aroma has lots of tangy, floral hops and notes of citrus, toffee and malt. Flavour is more malty and has notes of citrus and caramel. Light body, with a little sweetness, and a fairly short bitter finish. Easy to drink, maybe even sessionable, but not outstanding.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nice orange with thin head that disappeared pretty quickly. Aroma has some malt sweetness, resiny hopes and a little alcohol. Didnt really get any of the citurs aromas expected for the stle. Flavours are much the same with a little sweet biscuty malt and some hop bitterness. Mouthfeel was fairly wayery. Not what was expected for the style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper brew with a nice off white head. The nose is actually quite hoppy, a nice citrus character, malty, very light alcohol, some phenolic character. The flavor shows a mild hop profile, light citrus, an impressive hop character given what I was expecting. A nice crisp easy bitterness. Job well done.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2009 Bottle (330ml). Poured a nice gold colour. Aroma of grains, malt, and a little citrus. Not as much as I hoped from an APA. Palate a little on the thin side, with low carbonation. Flavours of stonefruit, lemons, little bit of malt (not enough of a malt flavour for me). Where are the hops? Itís an easy quaffer, but I want more bang for my buck.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (330ml). Poured hazy bronze with a small, frothy, head which was average lasting. Aroma was of piney/fruity hops with gooseberries, apricots, passionfruit, melon, biscuty malts and sweet toffee. Flavor was a mild hop (piney) bitterness with apricots, grapefruit, light notes of melon, caramel malts, mild notes of almond biscuits and a touch of hop resin in the finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, a dry mouthfeel, watery texture and a decent finish.

Very powerful florals and citrus aromas pour out of the glass. Strange murky colour with no head. Salty and flat as it warms up. Quite nice.
