3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Really overcarbonated bottle, it’s been in the fridge undisturbed for a week and frothed out everywhere on opening. Now my kitchen table smells like pineapple. Big amarillo aroma, something not quite right in flavour. A little inky newspaper in the finish. Another aussie APA that you’d only want one or two of; unbalanced and overly sweet.

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

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle from DM’s. Hazy golden beneath an ample cream-white head that lingers and laces nicely. Citrus hops dominate the nose (oranges, passionfruit and pineapple particularly) with background caramel malt base. Good balance of malt and hops on the tongue making for a refreshing easy drinking uncomplicated APA. Moderately bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. Well crafted.

Sweet fruity aroma, cloudy gold in colour with a thin white head. A very pleasant surprise, crisp hops flavour not a strong malt taste. I like it and will definitely be drinking it again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy brown colour with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, passionfruit and other fruits with some hops. Taste is light to medium sweet of fruit leading to a modest finish. OK.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the brewery. Always inflates the score slightly. Copper/gold with white head and decent lacing. Classic passionfruit and grapefruit aromas as well as a malt caramel back note. Citrus flavours dominate, however there is a good malty caramel backbone to add a touch of sweetness and good balance. Good lingering bitterness.

Bottle from Cafe Sydney.
Citrus hop aroma, pleasant. Slightly yellow pale appearance, quite a thin head. Tastes of dry citrus hops as expected, well rounded though.
Overall a nice drinking pale ale, a good take on the dry citrus pale ale.
