COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This quenching brew is crafted in the American west-coast style. It sports a beautiful soft citrus hop aroma which gives way to a round, honeyed-fruit flavor. The finish is crisp and refreshing.

Found this at a new restaurant. The aroma was a great balance of hops and malt. Taste was the same great mix. Very enjoyable.

Sevenlee (1197) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - APR 11, 2014
Pours a hazy amber colour with a creamy white head. Aroma is malt, citrus, caramel and some hops. Taste is light sweet and a little thin leading to a light bitter finish. OK.

M_Sack (280) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 3, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy orange/copper, thin cream head and medium lacing. Typical but subtle APA aromas of tropical fruit, spicy hops and a touch of caramel. Unusual sourness to open, with mid palate pine resin and barely detectable malt, finishing with a long, dry, bitter pine. Edging towards an IPA in my book, missing the great balance between fruity hops and malt as opposed to resinous hops in this beer.

hawthorne00 (2257) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle. Just hazy amber with a white head. Aroma of oranges, kumquats, peaches, light spicy toffee. Light bodied. Citrus is zestier than suggested by a sniff and there’s less sweetness too. Getting on towards thin really. Lots of citrus, light stone and tropical notes, dry modestly bitter finish. Refreshing, perhaps overclean for me.

floydian1 (826) - FNQ, Australia, - JAN 17, 2014
360ml bottle from DM’s. Amber beer with huge white head that laces well. Nose has tropical fruits (pineapple, lychee, melon) with pines and oranges on top of a honey malt base. Flavours are similar with citrussy hops notes to the fore and a decent resinous bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. OK for an APA but rather expensive Down Under.
