3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a perfect amber with thin white head. Smells incredibly refreshing and full of American pale ale yeast and hops. The taste is crisp with a sting bitterness at the back of the palate. A good all round American pale ale, especially for Oceania. If you like this beer and haven’t tried little creatures pale ale (from fremantl, western Australia) I would strongly recommend that you give it a go.

A wonderful burnt orange colour with a thin but steadfast ivory head. Melon on the nose and a sweet biscuity malt aroma. Nice and hoppy, pine and grass flavours - sweet toffee to help balance it. Medium to light body, nice and crisp finish with good carbonation.

Poured from bottle. Answer in color with a large head. Slight fruity aroma and purely hoppy taste resembling cardboard

resiny and hoppy despite the fact that I don’t think this is very fresh. Seems older than the ipa and lager with hints of cardboard. Still pretty good, which keeps me curious...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Beer Deluxe, Melbourne
Pale copper beer, creamy white head.
Hoppy nose; melon, papaya, citrus, nice touch of light caramel biscuity malt.
Med-full body, moderate carbonation, some sticky resiny texture there.
Plenty to enjoy here - tropical fruity, fragrant hops, backed up by biscuity toasty malts. Bitterness somewhat restrained, hops seem to accentuate malt sweetness.
What you would come to expect from a good NZPA - good stuff!

Flaska från Craftbeer/Galatea via SBs privatimport. En karamellig, lätt kådig pale ale med IPA kvalitéer i både kropp och humling. Mycket kolaremmar. Humlen är inte superfärsk men fortfarande fräsch med fina granskott och citrussmaker. Riktigt snygg och välbalanserad.

Light bodied example of an excellent pale ale. Citrus and spice forward floral hoppiness that opens into a moderately bitter palate. A great example. Highly recommend, this is the beer that got me into craft beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On keg at the Bow Bar.
Appearance - not particularly pale. More a deep amber. Decent head.
Nose - a bit elusive. Citrus and pine. Resin. Dried fruits.
Taste - toffee and red fruits. Definitely raisins on the end.
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry finish.
Overall - tastes stronger and more complex than the ABV. It’s hard to put this in the pale ale category.

It was a big hoppy drop, a touch too much hop component for me (15 different varieties is a lot of flavour to deal with) it was good, but a bit unwieldy.
