2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
