Bottle- Pours a deep golden color with a decent head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of malt sweetness and a bit of citrus and spice. Taste of Caramel sweetness with a touch of spice and bit of fruit in the background. Mild bitteriness and a clean finish. Fairly medium body, smooth and easy. Decent drinker but could use a bit more character.

Pours dark orange, quite hazy, small head, just a thin layer of foam. Aroma has some hop aroma, I also feel a bit of pure honey - that feels maybe a bit out of place but really honey-like. Hint about a stronger malt body? Taste is quite malty but hops are coming nicely out at the end. Not too thin, not too heavy - I have to say that this is actually not bad at all. Good session beer.

Light golden brown, no head. Sweet hop nose. Front is light and hoppy with clear crisp finish. Delightful for a hot day.

From a bottle. Pours a cloudy copper colour, tiny white head, well carbonated, sharp and fruity. It’s pretty good stuff.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2014 Lovely grassy hops scent, nice medium bodied beer with a lasting bitterness on finish. Excellent bang for buck compared to what else is available at same price.

Light orange, nutty aroma. Biscuit malt, citrus hops, candy, burnt toast, bitter finish. hmm original attempt for an APA from this Australian brewer, but still quite mild overall.

Bottle. Deep gold with orange tinge. Attractive off white head. Muted aromas of citrus, slight pine needles and malt. Underwhelming. Very dry mouthfeel. A bit of lemon blossom but largely flavourless.

Not too bad, for me, if they could fine tune the flavor some, that would vastly improve the beer. Poured at a good temperature with a thick, stable, off-white head and some lace. Color is a clear honey amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is fresh beer with malt and mild hop and toffee. Flavor’s like nose, but some harsh mineral qualities and medicinal show up. Body and carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor and unfortunately the bad flavors tend to linger.

(Bottle) Slightly hazy pale golden amber with thin head. Pleasant aroma - fruity and grassy. Light body, very well carbonated, although a little brusque. The taste is dominated by hops, in a rather odd way. There is quite a bit of bitterness in the finish, and hops are present throughout that taste profile, however they are not terribly exciting somehow. There’s some pleasant light malt and some refreshing citrusy notes. Maybe my palate is jaded today; I felt I should have liked this more, but somehow it didn’t excite, but it is very drinkable.
