Pours thick, dense orange. Floral aroma. Mandarin also. Hoppy on the tongue but with nice orange finish. Has bitterness in finish but not overtly strong. Has American west coast feel. Nice flavours.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 5.4% ABV. Consumed on one leg, naturally. Amber with a large off-white head that collapses. Smells very English - bread crust, mild citrus, pine needles, peach. Firm bread with shiny crusts, more berries than peach with a fine dry and moderately bitter finish. I liked this a lot.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
500ml bottle into shaker. 5.4%. Listening to ’Station to Station’ as Bowie remembrance. Caramel, bitter fruit nose. Slightly hazy golden/bronze beer with solid white head. Steady fine carbonation. ’Golden years’,indeed! Surprisingly flat mouthfeel with subtle pine and grapefruit finish that lingers a while. Great beer, brilliant music.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle - says 5.4% ABV, 45 IBU). Slightly hazy amber brown with big persistent light tan head. Pleasant distinctive aroma; mainly pine, but with citrus notes and caramel hints. Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation, maybe a shade too much. Taste is hops all the way, although not in an overwhelming way, just the flavour is hop driven from nice herbal and spicey notes at the start to some decent hoppy bitterness in the finish. In the mid palate there’s some balancing caramel toffee. Nice hop driven pale ale.

Draught (middy) at Buckley’s in Sydney on October 14, 2015.
Hazy golden color, off-white to yellow head. Hoppy, citrus, fruity, fresh taste. Citrus, a bit bitter aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, sort of high CO2, medium bitterness. Citrus hoppy scent. Really well balanced, highly drinkable!

On tap at The Happy Wombat. Wow, huge hop punch, don’t even think about it if you’re afraid of IBU’s. Thick resin finish, great stuff.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Best After 11/Feb/15. Poured a hazy orangey amber with a one- to two-finger off white foamy head that retained very well and laced OK. Carbonation high and fine. Aroma very nice and moderately strong of sweet floral hops, citrus, fruits. Taste slightly sweet malt followed by floral, citrus and fruity hops; hops dominated. Light body. Crisp, very flavoursome and with a moderately bitter finish. One to sip and enjoy. Very good!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From 500 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange-amber with a small but lasting white head. Moderate carbonation. Aromas of pine needles, orange zest, lemon and flowers. Taste is sweet malt at the front before a fairly restrained but noticeable lemon and pine resin bitterness washes in. Collapses a little at the end into a light tropical fruit finish. Gentle peppery aftertaste. Not bad at all.
