A-- Poured a clear dark gold color with a fluffy white one finger head that took its time in dropping to film. Decent head retention. No bubbles on the sides of the glass and just a bit of lacing. S-- Grapefruit and lemon hop smell with just a small amount of a biscuit background. Crisp and fresh smell. T-- Lemon citrus followed by grapefruit. Malt is a hearty biscuit like taste. M-- Not a lot of bite to this, more aromatic and kind of floral perfume like finish. Not a big hop driven finish and flavor dies off pretty quickly. D-- Low ABV at 4.8% so quite drinkable and refreshing, just not enough of a WOW factor to keep a Pale Ale fan interested. Good stepping stone from lagers to Pale Ales. After a while would want something bigger and bolder in the Pale Ale department.

Drank it straight from the bottle. Fair head after pouring and fairly bubbly giving me the burps. Yeasty with bubblegummy character and fruity. Due to the hoppiness a full flavour with oily afters.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2013 I got a lot of grapefruit and the slightest hint of passionfruit with some honeyed malt underlying it as I swirled this round my glass. I was very impressed with the aroma and looking forward to the first sip, but unfortunately I found it a little flat and watery on tasting. The passionfruit is more prominent on the tongue but the malt just about disappears altogether leaving a pretty short finish. A tad disappointing for a Bridge Road beer. (8-3-5-2-11 = 2.9) Second go - don’t know why, but I got a lot more malt on my second tasting and found this to be a really well-balanced pale. Followed it with the Sierra Nevada PA, and I thought it held it’s own.

330ml Bottle. lovely tropical fruit aromas. subtle caramel malt flavours with a great hop bitter flavour, that lingers for some time.

Pale brown pour with a healthy cloud of sediment. Hoppy aroma profile with both local and Pacific Northwest characters that don’t overpower each other: passionfruit, citrus, mango, and a pineyness that seems to cut through as it warms. Light toasty malt beneath, but this is a hop show. Bitterness is medium; a touch less than its Little Creatures/Sierra Nevada brethren. Well attenuated and nicely carbonated. A contender for the best pale ale in the country. Very nice!

allanbowers (93) - melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 20, 2011
This pours with almost no head at all. It is a caramel colour and has hints of caramel in the taste. This is not too hoppy for a pale ale however it has a bitter after taste.

Maris (1308) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 12, 2011
From a 330ml bottle on 12/7/2011. Pours a slightly cloudy golden, with a big head. Has a nice fruity aroma (esp passionfruit) with some yeast and bubblegum notes. Flavour wise, it’s a little less involving - just a bit of fairly non-deScript fruity sweetness, followed by a quite decent hop kick. Not a bad drop.
