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.

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.

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

ALLOVATE (2475) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 8, 2014
Into a tulip, chilled. Brilliant, medium gold. Highly effervescent with a sudsy and loose white head of foam. Hefty and raw pine-needle, forest-floor nose; very clean with hints of tree bark, vine clippings, eucalypt, camphor and elderflower. Dry; parchingly dry in fact. Clean and streamlined with a very raw and rough flavour profile like the nose. Pine-wood, gritty palest malt, haybales, dusty herbs. Moderately bitter finish, floral and herbal with a touch of spice. Spritzy to lively in carbonation and on the light side in body. There is only a light hint of fruit in the linger, citric, and almost distant. Very quaffable. Leaves you parched and in need of more. Not a bad drop at all. (33cL can, BB 26/12/14, Dan Murphy’s Cannington)

sm89walt (1780) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 7, 2014
355ml can. Poured a hazy golden yellow with a fine and slowly fading white head. Aromas of piney, near resinous hops balanced by juicy passionfruit, peach and tangerine. Light to medium body, medium carbonation and firmly textured that’s crisp, clean and refreshing. Finishes with a lingering pithy pink grapefruit bitterness. Good intensity to start and fine length but falls a little short on the back end. Good as a summer sessioner.

Bif (1561) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 6, 2013
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.

Maris (1023) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2013
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.
