A colorful deep Ruby Amber appearance. Aromas of Pine and Grapefruit overlay a malt background. On the palate full bodied malty flavors with a tight and bitter finish.

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.

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

danlo (1741) - 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 (403) - 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. -
