KeefOz (1561) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - OCT 13, 2016
Tasted 9/Oct/2016. Draught at Potters Hotel, Nulkaba. Poured a hazy mid-amber with 5mm of white foam that diminished quickly to a collar that laced OK. Carbonation nil. Aroma nice, fresh and sweet with moderate to strong pine, grapefruit and malt. Taste of nice strong pine and a hint of grapefruit; quite hoppy; nice bitterness. Light body. Smooth, crisp and fresh with a lingering nice low to moderate bitterness on the finish.

Muggus69 (2142) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - DEC 29, 2014
Draught at Potters Attractive pale amber beer with solid head. Good hop nose; typical American fair with a good measure of grapefruit, grass and woody spice with underlying biscuity malt. Full bodied, a touch of slickness to the texture. Offers a good light caramel backbone with ample notes of hoppy citrus and pine like spice. Firm bitterness, well balanced. Excellent apa, one of the best in Oz

I had this on tap at the brewery. Aroma was fruity and so was the taste with a hint of toffee.

Cloudy pale tan. Aroma shows a little yeast and a fair bit of orangey hop. Fresh and yeasty, but the hop character is fruity, tasty and w moderate bitterness. Decent brew.

A-- Pain in the butt getting the plastic champaign style cork off. Attractive smoke came from the bottle though. Poured a dark honey color with tints of orange in the sides. Very big and well retained light brown head. Almost a good three fingers worth head. Shows a lot of carbonation and small bubbles on the side. Very nice lacing to this. S-- Orange, lemon, some grapefruit but a whole lot of citrus. Some honey in this I also think. Very crisp and light smelling but refreshing. T-- Very hop forward. Quite aggressive. Lots of grapefruit taste followed by lemon. No real malt taste to this. All about hops in this. M-- Well carbonated, creamy and filling in the mouth. Lots of bitterness to this but finishes dry and clean with a touch of bitterness. D-- It is aggressive I will say that much. Nice beer but needs a bit of malt. As a 330 or 355 ML would be excellent but as a 750 would be a bit much to finish.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a nice amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma is fruity with some toffee, hops and spices. Taste is also fruity with some passionfruit, grapefruit and notes of toffee, biscuit and citrus. Sweet fruity after taste with a ballsy bitter finish. Great job.

Draft at the brewery. Pours a bright deep amber with nice slightly off white head. Plenty of lacing as it falls away. Big american hop aromas with plenty of citrus and bubblegum coming through. Flavour of some light caramel up front and a good resiny hop bitterness near the finish. More malt came through as it warmed. Fullish mouthfeel. Nice beer.
