4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Wow, what a great surprise! Poured this at a good temperature with a colossal, foamy, frothy, fluffy, cream-colored, head that lasts and last and loads of lace. Color is a slightly hazy amber with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is mainly a resin hop with a bit of citrus, malt, bread dough. Flavorís like nose, tang in front, fairly dry, bitter not too strong for malt. Body is perfect, chewy; carbonation spot on. Finish is like flavor, incredibly drinkable, wish I had more. Looking forward to getting some around Perth - and hell wherever I can get it. Bravo to these guys!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2014 I?ve had this one alot the month I?ve been here in Australia. Pours a perfectly cloudy copper colour with a soapy white head. Looks so deliciuos! Citrus, passionfruit and grapes in the aroma, somewhat a bit faint, but still pleasant. Flavour has deep malty notes of biscuits, wood and some spruce, together with some tropical notes from the hops. Refreshing mouthfeel, medium carbonation and a medium body. A very nice and accessible beer here, I have more of this one.

Bottle, poured into tulip glass. Lightly hazy light orange, diminutive white head. Aroma is dryish orange rind, caramel, and touches of spice and wood. Taste is sweet, big hoppy bitterness on the out. Mid bodied, mid carbonated. Goes down well.

Probably one of the best mainstream pale ales out there, hasnít changed too much over time. Lots of floral and resinous notes. Easy drinking.

Best beer in Australia but still miles from Belgian perfection. I can actually enjoy drinking this for the flavours and tastes, not just the alcohol and water.

Pours a quite clear golden colour with a nice head, head dissipates rather quickly. Most of the hop aroma has faded over time, but it is not totally gone. Taste is nicely balanced on the bitter side. Overall, a great pale ale.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma citrus, freshly mown grass & light toast. Taste is toasted bread up front, transitioning to grapefruit. Peppery on the tongue. Good refreshing beer for the hot Australian summer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Australiaís jump into the highly hopped pale ales seems to fall a bit short of what it could be in this example. Pours a medium golden with a bit of amber highlights, limited foam. Aromas of light citrus, grapefruit, upfront along with a few non-distinct tropical notes. Displays a modest and neutral malt character. As an american pale ale, this beer could use a lot more hop character, especially in the finish which tails off slightly watery. An average at best american pale ale, however it is a step in the right direction for pale ales in Australia.

Citrussy and hoppy all in one blast. Quite refreshing and crisp, would be perfect for a warm summers day.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(33cl from Tight; BBD: Feb 21st 2014) Pours semi clear golden with white head. Good retention and lace. Aroma is subdued, faded hops with hints of citrus fruits. Oily texture, medium bodied, soft carbonation and slightly dry finish. Flavour has a moderate bitterness. Ok, but most likely too old as the aroma is nothing like the galaxy driven pale ales Iíve brewed myself.
