3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light on colour but lacking nothing in taste. Complex flavours eventually give way to a long, lingeringly luscious, bitter finish.

4.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2014 I enjoyed this a lot. Low in malt, great hops. Alcohol doesn’t come through... dangerous! Not complex but very drinkable. Would have this again... and again! 7 Jun 2014 - this batch more complex - more malty but well balanced - the kaffir lime comes through. Bloody fantastic.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Not sure what the go is with this - whether or not it’s fresh or just not that good in my opinion. Very marmaladey and peachy. A muddled palate which resembles what you would find in a cheap beer. Carbonation is very spritzy and doesn’t help any transition with flavours. Not my kind of pale at all but I can see the approachability it has

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden amber, with a moderate off-white head, which lasts well and leaves decent lacing. The grapefruit peel is particularyl noticeable in the aroma, with lemongrass and grainy malt supporting it. Grapefruit peel and lemongrass introduce it, providing zest and a touch of sweetness up front. Grainy cereal malt in the mid-palate is absolutely swamped by kaffir lime leaf, which is the dominant flavour through the finish. This is quite an unusual beer, to say the least. It does sort of work, although the kaffir lime leaf gives the finish a very odd feel, but the actual beer is not really a noticeable presence, merely a vehicle for the exotic ingredients.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Slowbeer. Bright orange/amber, subtle hints of lemon, lime, grapefruit on top of a solid resiny bitterness. Quite light on the palate, bordering on watery compared to other APA/IPAs, but flavour and aroma more than makes up for it. An interesting and enjoyable beer.
