2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap in a tulip glass at The Local Taphouse ST Kilda on 18/03/13. Pours golden brown with a white head that didnít hold. It was just bland, nice hop aroma with hints of peach but really disappointing taste. Almost no malt flavours, surprising giving itís deep colour and almost no traditional hop profile... 9 hops? Really? Also a slightly sulphuresque yeast element. Iím hoping this beer just didnít travel well....

Bottle. Amber with an inch of white head thatís never less than a coat. Complex hop aroma with grapefruit, orange, flowers, tropical fruits and spices. Some bread and caramel too. Light, creamy texture, highish carbonation. Sweet with caramel, bread, peaches, oranges. Spices, pine and grapefruit lead into a fairly bitter finish. Like this a lot but bet itís better in situ.

Very haze tangerine color with nice foam.
Hops and tropical fruits on aroma and taste, with a nice bitter hoppy aftertaste. Very nice beer.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale color with excessive cream production, very citrus and hop in aroma, the taste is bitter and dry, with grapefruit notes, P.A./I.P.A. is not my favorite style, overly hoppy, with very astringent aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is dark transparent copper with a yellowish white fluffy head. Nose is very soft and sugary, caramel and brown sugar, light toasted grain and some syrupy resinous citrus. Taste is very sweet, lost of caramel, very sugary, lightly toasted grain mid palate moving to a syrupy citrus hop in the finish. Heavy body, low carb, not on point with pale ale.

330ml bottle. Looks very inviting when poured with a deep golden honey amber colour and a crisp tan head, followed by lots of floral hop aromas. Very smooth in the mouth and on the paste, almost creamy.

On tap at local taphouse. Pours an orange copper with a fluffy white head. Aromas of apricot, peach and citrus. Malt driven with fruity notes at the back end. Different to any other APA that Iíve had. I like this a lot.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl Bottle at La Dolce Vita, Dublin. Pours copper colour with fairly thick white head - plenty of lacing. Aroma is pine resin, wood, earthiness, spice, slight citrus, grapefruit. Taste is big on the pine resin and earthy notes, grapefruit bitterness is there too, fairly robust caramel malt profile is prominent too. Mouthfeel is a bit rough, as is the bitter bite (sticks around long into the aftertaste). A good, hoppy, USA-inspired ale; plenty of positives here but Christ almighty it's expensive for what it is. A good couple of quid more expensive than other (better) beers in a similar style, so would certainly drink again as long as it's not my round!
