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.

Coppery red under a tight 10mm beige cap. Fruity notes of apricot, sweet raisin and feint pine. Very pleasant bitterness and malt balance. This is a very good APA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a clear coppery amber colour with a very thin head that diminished quickly and left no lacing. Low carbonation. Pleasant sweet fruity aroma. Taste is sweet fruity malts straight up followed by a very mild hops presence. Medium body. Smooth on palate with a very slight bitter finish. Very nice!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A basic, run-of-the mill APA. Not fantastic by any means, it is insipid and has no body.

Nice tasty use of hops in this pale ale. Nice amount of bitterness and aroma as a result that make this an interesting while still being a sessionable beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Hazy orange pour with a foamy beige head that lasts a little while. Hoppy aroma has notes of grapefruit, lime, mandarine, grass and pepper. Flavour is also pretty hoppy but the fruit notes are a lot more restrained and the spicy, grassy notes more pronounced, and also the malty caramel comes through more than in the aroma. Slightly oily mouthfeel with soft carbonation and a lengthy bitter finish. Fairly decent APA, tasty and easy to drink, but at the same time there isn’t really anything to distinguish this from the scores of other similarly good APA’s that are readily available.
