4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Another stunner from this great brewery. Cloudy orange pour with a tenacious and lively beige head. Nose of pineapple, lemon and orange zest, peppery/spicy Nelson Sauvin hops. Also some toasted malt in there, well balanced with the hops. Taste is sort of an international trifecta... hop level of a great American pale ale, the great hop profile of Nelson from down under, and a biscuity malt profile from the UK. Cheers!

Bottle at home from Cellar Balckrock. Subtle aroma peach, citrus, tangerine. Lots of peach, citrus and tangerine flavour. Its quite highly carbonated and light bodied but has plenty of flavour. Nice fruity carbonated punch on finish. This is nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Golden hue with thick creamy white head that lingered. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, orange, rosemary, grassy. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness initially with nice bitter following and clean finish. Overall this is a decent brew.

Bottle. Massive head that took a long time to dissipate.Yellow and slightly cloudy. Hoppy at first then a bitter finish creeps in. That head which had to be ploughed through spoilt this one. Apart from that it was fairly average.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy amber with a head that took some time to get under control. Left some lacing but not much. This beer is a citrus bomb, almost like citrus skins. There is some biscuitiness hidden in there. If you like citrus then this will be for you, but if you like a pale ale with a hop balance then maybe not.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - pours hazy golden orange with a frothy white head. Lot of fruit on the aroma, caramel malt and hop resin. Some fruit on the taste, even bitterness, taste doesn’t fulfil the promise of the aroma.

Hazy golden honey pour with a small eggshell crown. This one is all about thick, sweet, earthy, and tropical fruit. A bit cloying compared to the style. Meh.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle, a gusher, loads of foam and ended up with less than half a pint. Head is foamy, body is hazy golden brown. Aroma has caramel malts with grassy and piney hop, with hints of the Nelson passion fruit flavours. Not overly hoppy. Finish is very bitter but pleasant. Carbonation soft. Decent enough, but would have to try again a different bottle

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2014 Sampled on draft at the Gordon Ramsay Pub in Las Vegas this beer poured a dark amber color with a small foamy off white head that faded quickly and left good lacing. The aroma was dry, spritzy citrus and perfume. The flavor was dry and bitter - noticeably lacing in malt and had perfumey hops and a bit of Windex. Medium length dry and bitter perfume finish. Medium body. Meh.

Golden colour, but a little cloudy. Small to medium head. Medium malt alternate. Excellent all round pale ale.
