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.

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.

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 isnít really anything to distinguish this from the scores of other similarly good APAís that are readily available.

(bottle) Clear amber copper with no head. Sweet fruity aroma with hints of perfume and caramel. Medium body, light carbonation. Flavour has nice sweetly fruity start with a satisfyingly bitter finish. Nice beer, but no surprises.

Tap and bottle- pleasing grapefruit hop aroma. Well balanced malt and hop profiles. A good hop bitterness finish. Also a good session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bit of a surprise packet this. Genuine hop punch with tight defiant grapefruit and bitterness. Some subtle malt sweetness is layered in but plays second fiddle to the hops. Surprisingly short finish. Iíll be back for more.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2012 Bottle 330ml from King&Godfree. Tasty amber, malty with a good hop balance. Aromas of grain and nuts. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and average length. Palate is oily, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

Drank on tap. Lovely rich colour and nice foamy head. It boasts some citrusy herbaceous notes. Its a quality session pub pale ale thats easy to knock back...one after another.

eczematic (1321) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - MAR 1, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 probably the best of the bottled 4 pines beers, im happy to have it when the little creatures use by date is soon. heavy high alpha american hop aroma, slightly dirty somehow though, whether from yeast or hops not sure. some maltiness and caramel and decent bitterness, long lasting hop aftertaste and very dry finish - too dry - but with lots of diacetyl instead of body.

Sevenlee (1515) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - FEB 9, 2012
Pours an amber colour. Aroma is a bit of pine, grapefruit with some caramel. Taste is also fruity and malty with some toffee leading to a medium bitter finish. I think itís way too carbinated so mouthfeel is too fizzy which is better suited to a Witbier not a Pale Ale. Overall not bad.

Golden colour with a slight reddish tinge. Minimal head. Slightly cloudy. Sweet fruit aroma. Slightly bitter malt flavour, definite fruit. Nice.
