Its all about the hops. In this case Australian Galaxy hops. Used in the kettle, the fermenter and in maturation to give a big hit of enticing citrus and passion fruit flavours but without too much bitterness to slow you down.

Better than average but not great, had at Beer Cartel. Nice aroma and classic Australian pale ale flavours, more of a golden ale to be honest. Reminded me slightly of the Pacific Ale by Stone & Wood, a bit thin and very passionfruit & grapefruity. Drinkable.

Bought in a 355ml can from Dan Murphy’s. Packaging and name gave me the impression it was some el cheapo trying to cash in on the craft beer market. However the initial pouring showed this was a serious beer. Beautifully cloudy and golden with a nice creamy and bubbly head showed lots of promise. Hints of fruitiness in the aroma. Classic pale ale flavours, leaning towards dry rather than sweet, lively, medium bodied. Very pleasant. Only disappointment was the finish. Astringent would probably be a bit harsh, but would have liked that flavour to hang around for a bit longer. Overall, a good example of the type of Pale Ale that’s available in Australia at the moment. I’d buy it again.

From a 355ml can on 4/7/2013 (labelled ’The Pale Ale’). Pours a quite cloudy light straw with a medium head - a very odd looking beer. Has a lovely light fruity aroma, with some citrus and passionfruit. There’s lots of passionfruit and more sweet citrus in the flavour, with a slightly dry, relatively firm finish. Has quite lively carbonation and a medium body. This is a very nice beer - quite similar to a Knappstein Reserve Lager, which is a good thing. I’m quite liking this brewery’s work so far.

Can from DM. Very pale, cloudy and thin looking.... nice head though. Almost no malt, maybe a little straw. Definitely Galaxy hops in there with citrus and a little passion fruit, but the beer pleasant as it is, is sadly unbalanced. Quite spritzy and a little thin with a tropical character in the finish.

355ml can from Dan Murphy’s. There is a big fluffy white head above a hazy cloudy looking amber beer. Nice passionfruit hop aroma which is pleasant in the nose. Fruity and zingy in the mouth and the favour is a mix of rockmelon and passionfruit.

From can and called "The Pale Ale". Pours a cloudy pale straw color with a decent head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma of citrus and fruit with bit of malt in the background. Taste of citrus with a bit of malt sweetness and grain. Decent bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly moderate body, crisp and refreshing. nice balance. Enjoyable beer, better than I expected.

On tap. Pours a cloudy yellow colour with a creamy white head. Aroma fruity, grapefruit and slightly hoppy. Taste is also fruity, grapefruit, citrus and a light bitterness in the finish. Not bad.

Tap. Very pale yellow, white head. Light malts, some tropical fruit, indistinct weedy bitterness, a little funk that seemed out place.
