Pours a hazy yellow. Fruit hop aroma with a hint of lemon. Light to medium carbonation with a grape/citrus flavour that is balanced by a sightly dry finish A very drinkable pale ale with less hoppy astringency than some. Like this a lot.

Tap. This is a great APA. Aromas of grass, and grain. Flavour is long-lasting, and predominantly bitter. Velvety in the palate, and medium-bodied. Amber colour, with a creamy long-lasting head.

Pours a cloudy amber with a rich head that leaves a discreet lacing down the glass. The aroma is a nice hop forward profile of tropical fruits, pine needles and citrus. The palate is soft with a firm malt base, the taste is like a fruit salad on a summer day with lots of undefined fruity flavours swirling on the tongue leading to a medium bitter finish.

Definitely more tropical fruit than lower citrus. Ping of caramel in the malt. Almost bubbly in the nose but not carbonated by any means. Bit of golden ale early but very fruit salad in mouth. Sugary midway through leading into tasty finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours brilliant copper colour, with a strong tightly packed head. A slight chill haze is present and adds to the depth of the copper hue. On the nose smells of ripe melons and passionfruit and apricots can be detected, indicating the high hop profile of this ale. The pallet is very rounded and quite full, with some up front malt and tropical fruit flavors, light carbonation, and very leasent lingering bitterness.

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!

Rangi (580) - NEW ZEALAND - AUG 24, 2012
Poors a murky off yellow colour but what a nice fruity aromatic beer with sweet fruits and citrus to balance. Lively on the tongue and thirst quenching very different from the usual pale ale and another I will be buying for the up coming BBqs this summer.

Very hoppy aroma, which is reflected in the initial flavour. Mild finishing hops makes this easy to drink. Golden colour with medium carbonation. I want more of this
