I was beginning to wonder when Bridge Rd would really really nail one and they have with this. Lovely citrus hop aroma leads in to a nice mix of tropical fruits - passionfruit and mango predominantly. Balance is good and there is a nice balanced bittering finish.
Very reminiscent of the Knappstein Lager which is not a bad thing at all!!

Had this on tap at the Wheatsheaf, Adleaide througha hopinator stuffed with an experimantal Australian hop. the aroma was big, herbal and fruity hop character with some quite complex floral notes too. A clean, quite pale in colour beer with the added hop hit from the hopinator. Nicely done!

330mL bottle 2012 harvest, pours a clear almost straw colour but the aroma is amazing.. smells like fresh cut grapefruit/mandarin/orange wow. Those aroma’s really flow through to the flavour and they all mingle well, very low level of pale malt flavour and this makes the hops shine! i see so much potential for this hop.

Deep brushy aromas of citrusy hops and a nice caramel malt background. Smells a dead ringer for Sierra Nevada PA. Flavor is really well balanced caramelly malt and citrusy hops. A little watery on the back, but a really solid beer. Immediately ordered another round for my colleagues and we’d run the bar out of it (and were quite dissapointed -which is the true test)

Beautifully yellow clear with big white sturdy head. Smells like lemons with some grassy notes. Very fresh and light. Tastes a bit healthy. Very good pale with low bitterness and sweetness. Very delicate

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a thich white head that sticks around. Moderate carbonation. The nose is amazing, with a huge whack of passionfruit, papaya, melon and pepper. The taste is dominated by passionfruit, but a note of pine resin comes through too with moderate bitterness, before some lemon, spice and malt. Quite a clean finish, but leaves a light fruity aftertaste. Excellent Aussie pale ale.

Bottle from Slowbeer. Hazy amber, lasting, frothy head, aromas of passionfruit, fresh cut grass, lemon zest, good bitterness, resin/pine, some malt sweetness to balance it all out. A very good pale.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a pale yellow with solid head, plenty of carbonation. Fruits on the nose such as passionfruit, lychee. Fairly tasty with plenty of flavour, with light bitterness and body. Easy to do down, was hoping for a little more but all up its a pretty solid beer and is certainly very sessionable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy golden orange with a nice off white head. Nose has herbacious hops that bring masses of citrus and tropical fruit. I’d say nelson sauvin or galaxy varieties. Palate translates well. A heap of tropical fruit: mango, passionfruit. A touch of dry grainy aussie malt pops up, but is very feint. Certainly not enough to offend, almost a little bit biscuity. Finishes with green grassy hops and medium bitterness. Really good! Practically oozes fresh hops.
