Fruity aroma, clean crisp taste with a mild hint of hops. A great beer for an arvo session.

Competent ale, sessionable and quite enjoyable, without being overly impressive. Not quite good enough to stand out from the crowd of quality pale ales on the market today, but certainly a long way from the mediocre end of the pack. Would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber pour with an off white head. Strong citrus fruit aromas. Most prominent flavour is the grapefruit that supersedes some pine and lychee. Excellent use of finishing hops to mask the malty flavour that overpowers some pale ales. High carbonation. A nice choice.

I found this to be quite an unimaginative generic pale ale. Don’t bother if you have a choice.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2013
Amber, slightly hazy. Thin head. Earthy, citrusy, lots of wood. Mod bitterness but quite a bit of hop character.

Vanz (189) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 11, 2013
Deep clear amber coloured pale ale with a thin head. Quite a weak aroma, mostly pine but fairly indiscernible. Taste is quite malty for an APA, mostly pine, very dull grapefruit, hints of yeast & clove as well which is interesting and different. A slight soapy mouthfeel with a lingering bitter aftertaste. A different APA in the Australian market, not your average Galaxy Dry Hopped APA, not my favourite though.

varanid99 (461) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 2, 2013
Mid gold pour with a decent white head. Malty, spicy aroma, just a little grass. Taste is malty, toffee, slight bitterness and a little biscuity.

vanvenlo (1191) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - SEP 2, 2013
Slowbeer bottle (2-Sep-13) Light grapefruit hop aroma. Clear ruby colour, low head and suds lacing. Sweet malt spice pepper flavour. Light grapefruit pepper finish and spice hop aftertaste.

Herbal spicy hop malt aroma. Murky amber colour with good head and lacing. Spicy herbal hop malt flavour. Smooth palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
