gnoff (7687) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2013
Draught at the brewpub on July 14, 2013. As part of a tasting paddle.
Stated to have 35 IBU, served as "American Style".
Clear copper color, tan head. Malty, sweet, crisp, bitter, hoppy, red berries, hints of grapefruit and other sweeter citrus fruits taste. Fairly smooth mouthfeel, medium to medium high bitterness with a slight mineral finish. Sweet, malty, fresh, hoppy scent.

Been meaning to give this a rate for a while. A very good flavoursome session beer. Grapefruit with solid malt backbone.

danlo (1087) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours an orangey amber colour, foamy off-white head and aroma of malt caramel, mango, pineapple, orange hop resin. Taste is malt caramel, tropical fruits, grapefruit citrus & woody pine resin bitterness with a biscuity note. Light bodied, medium carbonation, dry bitter finish. Quite OK.

M_Sack (352) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 15, 2013
Quite dark in colour with a huge floral nose. Pineapple, grass and a hint of flowers on the palate. There is limited bitterness however, which belies the obvious hop smell and flavour. There is no clear malt back note although the beer is very well balanced. Perhaps not a classic amber ale, and although unusual, a delicious beer. 4 Pines do it again. Up there with Australia's most consistent craft brewers. -

Bif (1392) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Purs a clear dark copper color with a nice head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of pine, fruit and bit of malt sweetness. Tatse of pine, citrus, fruit and a trace of malt sweetness. Nice bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body, crisp, smooth and refreshing. Very well balanced. Enjoyable beer that goes down easy. Nothing fancy jus a very good beer.

ALLOVATE (2351) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2013
Produced up a deep orange with excellent clarity and void of visible carbonation. Head does nothing to rise any further than a film of white that to its credit leaves a fine lace. Tangy, underripe fruit, citrus, pear and pineapple over hints of pine-needles and stinging nettles - very pleasing. Plasant bitter, herbal balanced by a sweet honey malt front. A level of pine, orange zest, pale grain, chamomile and camphor gives it depth. Good body as it warms up with low carbonation and and oily finish. Nice length, dry and lasting bleeding out the initial sweetness. Very sessionable stuff. Not over the top but just a great pale ale. Nice! (33cL, BB 29/08/13, Liquor Baron’s Ocean Reef)

Westkyoto77 (503) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 28, 2013
Nice coppery red colour, citrusy aroma. Tasty and deep without being cloying, smooth mouthfeel and aftertaste. Could drink it quite often without ever getting tired of it. My favorite Australian pale ale by quite a margin.
