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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

Dark orange body with thin head. Nice hoppy aroma which carries through to the taste with a faint hint of smoke in the aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beautiful unfiltered dark orange. Nose is a bit muted, but citric hops slwly make their way to the top. In the mouth it’s a little more lively. Resonablt full bodied for a sub 5% beer. Medium length citrus hop finish .Not so complex. Good easy drinking. WIth maybe a few more IBUs and a piney hop to offset the citrus this could be a real champ.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A bit murky in the glass (rusty apricot) but authentic for the style and holds a consistent. albeit thin, head. Nose is lean and shows herbal hops and only the faintest touch of malt. Palate is similar; lean and linear with dry herbal hops and decent bitterness. I like what it is trying to do but needs a bit more oopmh to get going.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
30ml bottle. Murky and muddy copper dust colour with a tight knit small head. Heavy fruity hop aromas that are inviting and sweet. Very hoppy flavour that hits the mouth full tilt and envelopes all parts. Smooth and enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark copperish brown with smallish tan coloured head. Nice lacing as it falls away. Aromas are a little subdued to me though US hop aromas do come through. Grapefruit, lychee and perhaps some passionfruit. Some malt sweetness is also apparent in the background. Nice but not as apparent as I would like. Flavours are initially caramel sweetness and some of the fruit. Hop bitterness comes through on the end and whilst not overly assertive it is certainly there never the less. Not too bad but for me some more up front hop aromas would be good.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 330ml bottle on 16/5/2010. Has a fantastic, powerful aroma - stonefruits, passionfruit and some peach. Tastes extremely big for a beer which is only 4.7%. Lots of different flavours are evident. Sweet, fruity and malty, with a long, very assertive hop kick, which is almost peppery. Would probably be even better it the finish was just a touch more subdued. However, this is an excellent APA.
