I also assume that this is the "Star of India Pale Ale". Orange color, citrusy scent. Was hoppy with a bit of citrus taste. Mild for an IPA, but good. My favorite of their beers.

Thereís not a lot on the nose, but it looks good - deep clear amber with a lasting white head and lively carbonation. Taste is driven by some nice hops flavours with citrus, pine and herbal tones coming through. Maybe a bit thinner than other West Coast APAs, but itís refreshing and sessionable. Will be back for more.

Dervock (443) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle - pours amber with a frothy head. Soft fruity aroma mainly pineapple, some malt. Sweet malt taste up front, then a lingering hoppy finish. Balance mouthfeel.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 7, 2003
Very pale amber color with a foamy head. Aroma is of carmelized malt and hops override it. A nice caramel flavor as well with a nip of hops. Totally drinkable...nothing incredible.

DeliriumT (354) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2012
Fresh dry hop aroma mixed with a faint caramel smell. Flavour is slightly blander than expected but refreshing light hop bitterness and very subtle sweetness

M_Sack (354) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 18, 2013
Orange/amber with white frothy head. Aromas of melon and citrus. Similar flavours with elements of grass and bread like malt. An ok beer but nothing too exciting.

Niksko (315) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 11, 2013
330ml bottle.
Pours a clear golden with a finger of fine off white head.
Nose is lovely and fruity. Nose is dominated by mandarin and toffee, with light pineapple, orange and a hint of passionfruit. Theres a slightly sweet, earthy character too.
Flavour is pretty unusual for an American Pale Ale. The classic elements of the pine and citrus flavours are there, along with a bit of bitterness. However thereís also a fairly forward caramel and toffee component (like a scotch ale), as well as a little spiciness from the Motueka and a very subtle biscuit note on the finish.
Body is medium, and the beer lingers after youíve swallowed.
Pretty interesting. Definitely not a traditional American Pale.

Beer #3 in a flight. The most lemon Iíve had in a beer that didnít have a slice dropped it. Also had a touch of hops and a touch of pine, but none of it was very heavy. Perfect to drink when cleaning the house, though donít use pine sol -- the aroma would overpower the beer.
