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.

KeefOz (1537) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - SEP 28, 2016
Poured a translucent orangey-gold colour with a big off-white orange tinted frothy head that retained well and laced well. Carbonation low and fine; A few sediment particles settled out of this unfiltered beer. Aroma of sweet caramel, sweet citrus and earthy notes. Taste of sweet malt followed by sweet citrus; low bitterness increases as it warms and becomes a bit grapefruity. Light body. Smooth with a slightly dry, sweet citrus finish.

varanid99 (1006) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 7, 2016
Cloudy orange pour with a massive frothy pale orange head. Marmaladey, malty, grassy aromas. Taste is sweet malt, orange, and a bit of bitterness, nothing too complicated but pretty drinkable

Nice malt back bone. Balanced bitterness for an APA. Hints of pine and fruit. Good aroma. Good session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Brenhophead (695) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 9, 2011
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.

jonno (2489) - JAPAN - AUG 5, 2010
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.

Stew41 (1933) - Phuket, THAILAND - JUL 17, 2010
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.
