3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled on 25/2/15
Pale amber body, bit of haze, small white foam.
Hops drive the nose; tropical fruits, papaya/paw paw in particular, some citrus, some grass, some piney/woody spice, some biscuity malt in there too.
Full bodied, bit of chewiness, medium carbonation.
Malt comes through well on the body - biscuity, lightly toasted nuts & pale caramels - hops translate well also - more of that ripe paw paw thing going on, orange, & lime, grass & pine. Moderately high bitterness, lingering hop spice.
Solid APA, has a certain homebrewed charm to it, which works well.

On tap at Hop Factory, Newcastle. A nice crisp Aussie pale ale with citrus punch from the late dry hopping. Wish this beer made it North more often.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, handwritten date is appreciated - 3 weeks old and half of that was a my place. Clear pale amber with a white head. Aroma of kumquats, lime, mango, grass, a little caramel, pine. Light bodied, getting towards watery. OTOH, it’s very soft in the mouth. Carbonation is gentle. Bright fruity flavours - citrus and supporting tropical - a little pine in a bitter finish that creeps up a bit. Agreeable low-key beer that hits the spot pretty well.
