3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Kinda malty, very little hop character, maybe a little citrus. Medium carbonation. Light on the bitterness. Not very exciting.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured with a thick fluffy/foamy off white head that retained a little while then collapsed fairly fast. Left a translucent to clody brown amber liquid with a few suspended sediment particles. Initally foamy lacing but then none. Moderate to high carbonation. Aroma of hops with a trace of honey. Taste initally with a bit of sweetness but this followed by hops with a trace of spice/pepper. Medium body. A long dry spicy finish.

Again this is a good beer, nothing special though. Has some nice hop character in the aroma and on the palate, very easy drinking.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
This APA bordering on an IPA has an aroma of grapefruit, tangerine and popcorn with a little honey riding shotgun. It’s a lovely mélange of flavours. The taste is a little more basic, with a strong grapefruit flavour coming through on a slightly thin palate. A very pleasant Summer beer.

Bottle. A great hop aroma, dark orange in colour, a good hop aftertaste, a well balanced malt taste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours copper with a small white head. Aroma is caramel and toffee malts and slight citrus. Predominately malts coming through in the taste with citrus cutting through the middle. Nice enough pale, not as hoppy as I was expecting for an APA

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
An above-average APA from one of the better local brewers. Doesn’t bear comparison to the best of the west coast APAs after which it’s fashioned but it’s superior to most of the flabby pale ales on local shelves. Looks very much as it oughtta, but the aroma is short on hop character. There’s melon and faint passionfruit but the malts command more attention than the style warrants. Chewy toffee notes in the mouth and a nice herbal note in the swallow. Some nice clean piney characters - just wish it packed a few more IBUs. Solid. (330ml bottle)
