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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
