Poors cloudy gold with a strong white head. Smooth, almost rubbery aroma. Taste is rubbery, hoppy and a little bit of peach or passionfruit. Nothing special.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - MAY 18, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2008 RE-RATE: Bottle (330ml). Poured a muddy orange copper with a large, dense, frothy, off-white head which lasted very well. Aroma was of sweet fruity hops with mangos, canned peaches, pineapple and some toffee malts. Flavor was a good hop bitterness with toffee malts, mangos, apricots, rock melon and some resin/passionfruit in the finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, a dry mouthfeel and a good finish.

Muggus69 (1199) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 5, 2008
330ml bottle served chilled. Dense creamy white head atop a hazy copper body. Typically citrusy nose, a touch of pine and unripe rockmelon that seems a bit more uncommon with an underlying, carboardy yeasty element that often seems to crop up in Aussie-made APAs. Moderate carbonation, medium body, slight drying grittiness possibly due to the cloudiness. Big hop presence on the body; unripe rockmelon, grapefruit zest, pinecones, with some underlying toffee. Lingering bitter finish, slightly gritty on the tongue. Not a bad APA, bit similiar to other Aussie clones though.

Wonderful pineapple aromas. Good clarity and a medium lasting head. The ale is medium bodied. Flavour is where the beauty lies. It is citrusy, with the balance favouring hops more than malt and a moderately bitter aftertaste. This beer is an excellent example of a hop driven American style Pale Ale.

Linc (737) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2007
These guys are starting to get a bit of consistency. Slightly aged bottle, with buttery malt and a little paper, but a decent grapefruit presence and a crisp dry finish. OK, balanced beer.

winkle (476) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 11, 2007
Bottled: Looks good, citrus and pineapple aromas. Palate is ok, flavours seem citrus centric but ok, lingering bitter finish. OKish but needs the volume knob turned up louder.

Hoppy, citrussy nose with lemon and mandarin. Pours cloudy orange with a good head. Flavour has grassy notes, and, while not living up to the nose, is dry, floral hoppy and fresh. A pretty good APA and one of the best I’ve had from a vic micro outside Grand Ridge.

ChrisTurner (206) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 14, 2007
Bottle -- Poured with a thick white head that lasted more or less to the bottom of the glass. A cloudy amber colour with lots of bubbles. A clear citrus aroma. The flavour is quite sweet with a pleasantly bitter edge and a nicely bitter aftertaste. Yet another great beer from Beechworth.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2006
Pours a cloudy copper colour, fluffy white head. Big nose of passionfruit (all cascade armoa) and caramel malts. The bittering is very very solid, and the floral citrussy cascade/amarillo comes through very well. The malts obviosly take back seat, but there is some nice sweetness in there too. The finish is also very bitter. Overall, its not too far from LCPA, but there are enough complexity to make it an decent alternative.
