330ml bottle. I was a bit disillusioned with Gage Roads recent offerings but this one hits the mark. Deep copper brown colour with a beige foam cap. Aroma is packed full of bready malty hops,along with caramel and toffee.Strong flavour that sits well in the mouth. Good finish and well balanced .

Clear honey coloured body with short head. Figs and apricots in the aroma and the taste, low in carbonation and medium body. Pick the dry hopping. Drinkable.

hawthorne00 (2399) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 23, 2010
Bottle. Darkish amber with a medium light beige head. Aroma of toffee, peaches, grapefruit, a suggestion of pine. Sweet and a bit watery. Lots of rather plain toffee in the taste, decent bitterness with little in the way of the aromatics suggested in the nose. I like a substantial IPA, but this overdoes it and the malt is bland. Mediocre.

ALLOVATE (2381) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 1, 2010
Poured into a tulip it produces a sparkling orange-copper. Not much life visible, it fails to raise a head, the carbonation is minute and sparse. Relatively alluring aroma of caramelised orange and fig with a hint of caramel and Kaffir lime leaves. A little short on life in the mouth though there is harmony between the biscuity sweet malt start, tangy through to raspy hop back that drops off weedy and piney in the swallow. Light bodied, becomes oddly doughy in mouthfeel quickly yet the sprightly carbonation keeps it bouncing across the palate. Not too bad, but not exactly a mile off it’s green labelled brother IPA. An odd inclusion for these guys. Sessionable as a plus!!! (33cL, BB 29/09/11, BWS)

First off great packaging a good looking beer. Beautiful burnt amber with good carbonation. Nose is medium strength tropical fruit. In the mouth the malt has that slight macro taste but a good reasonably bracing bitter finish finishes off nicely. A bit of tinkering with this and this could become a real go to.

Bottle 330ml. Nice and malty. Aromas of caramel, butter, and honey. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and good length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a thin head.
