3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear brownish amber pour with a creamy beige head that lasts a while and leaves a lot of lace. Quite hoppy on the nose with lots of citrus and tropical fruits as well as some caramel. Flavour is pretty similar; orange, apricot, passionfruit, lychee and caramel notes all stand out. Light, slightly creamy mouthfeel with moderate carbonation and a long bitter finish. Pretty good Australian APA but slightly unbalanced: could be a little more full-bodied and the fruitiness tends to overshadow everything else. Having said that it’s still a nice brew and very easy to drink.

Pours a dark amber colour with big head and an aroma similar to murrays pale ale. Flavour is also very similar it tastes like a tweaked recipes. This is a very nice beer i enjoyed it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Quite a nice looking beer... Nice off white head, although that settles to a thin line quite quickly. Aroma seems a little muddled... I get some lychee, grass, pine, pawpaw...sort of like a fruit salad. But I also get some fusels.... Palate is a little thin, but nice mouthfeel. Bitterness is a little harsh, but not all that bad...
Carbonation is nice, and overall, pretty good.

Found this American Pale in my local bottlo, and really enjoyed it. New release as they are new owners. I had it before and thought it needed some tweaking. Nice pour of a copper/amber body with off white head that slowly dissipates, First thing that hits you is the citrus aroma of the hops, and there are plenty in this. The body is still light, but nicely balanced. Easy drinking for what smells more like an IPA.
