1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can. An average if slightly below average IPA? that drinks more like a pale ale. Very mild grapefruit up front with a fair hop aroma. Very thin and watery mouth feel, very average, over priced beer at best! Which seems to be the norm with the beers sampled from Golden Road. I had hoped for more...oh well.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured a clouded golden amber colour with a two-finger white frothy head that retained well and laced quite well. Carbonation low and medium sized. Aroma of moderately strong grapefruits with a hint of sweet tropical fruits plus an underlying malt sweetness. Taste of a light sweet caramel maltiness followed by a tart/citrus/grapefruit bitterness; not over-powering and quite nice. Light body. Smooth with an oily mouthfeel and a lingering nice moderate grapefruit bitterness on the finish. A good example of an IPA but nothing to differentiate it from many others.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy orangey hue with a pale, off white head. Citrus, grapefruit and pine on the nose. Wheaty, pine, slightly citrusy with a bitter back end. Medium bodied with ample carbonation. Decent ipa, nothing stands out particularly.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Murky golden color with thin white head. Slight floral notes from the hops. Crisp medium finish. This beer is complex enough to be desirable but the hops arenít very overwhelming, so you could easily drink a few of these on a hot day.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 355ml can on 26/5/2015. Pours a slightly cloudy golden with a bright white medium head. Has a pleasant troical/stone fruit hop aroma. Flavour wise, thereís lots of peach, apricot and passionfruit. Thereís not a lot of malt evident, and itís not particularly sweet, with the grapefruity bitterness ultimately holding sway. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Solid.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Brilliantly clear liquid gold with a fluffy head of cloud-white. Hop aroma is very mild -- I struggle to pick up much of it at all. Maybe a little lime peel, but itís faint. More apparent is an earthy honey note, as well as rose petals. The flavor has none of the bright, West Coast-style flavors the brewery describes; instead the beer exhibits soft, floral bitterness. The orange blossom honey picked up in the nose is here as well, adding a sweetness to the front of the flavor thatís completely eradicated at the swallow. Very dry, balanced finish. Body is a velvety medium; CO2 is mild. A good IPA to have several of -- what this one lacks in zippy hop flavor, it makes up for in drinkability.
