An American style hop driven ale. Strong hopping leads to a pungent floral and citrus aroma, with a pleasant late bitterness.

Yeah, its a pale ale - good quality in most respects with worthwhile aroma and creamy body. Certainly drinkable, but I couldnít help thinking there are lots of good pale ales and most better value.

Light amber color with apples, peach and caramel in the nose. Nice caramel backbone with nice apple and citrus notes. Moderately bitter finish. Nice.

Orange pour with thin white head. Tropical fruit and caramel aromas. Taste is malty, passionfruit, but a bum note to it, seems flat and the finish is a bit off. Could be a dud bottle, will re rate one day

monoroc (49) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - NOV 7, 2014
Pours cloudy golden color with a small head. Big fruity hop aroma. Medium malt body and a rather floral / piney taste with a prominent bitter finish. Good carbonation. A stronger malt body would make this beer a winner.

A nice American pale ale, a reliably good moobrew beer but not exceptional. 330 ml bottle in Hobart.

330ml bottle. Poured a light deep gold colour with a large frothy head which slowly disappeared leaving minimal lacing. Aroma is very floral with some citrus and honey notes. It most reminds me of Wollemi Wilderness Honey. Initial sweet, piney taste gives way to lingering bitterness. Medium, smooth body. Not my cup of tea.

Fruity aroma. Cloudy golden colour with too much head. Fruity up front with rough ftertaste. Light body with high carbonation.

From a bottle. Big fruity hop aroma, cloudy amber with a thin lasting head, rich bitter citrus flavours. I like it a lot.

VinegarStroke (345) - Napa, California, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle: very light haze, light copper honey with medium head and no lace. Light citrus and hops and sweet malt. Off dry, not sour and low bitterness. Hollow and short. Pretty simple and short. Clean. Just lack personality.

I have to say that I feel a bit bad rating this beer 3 out of 5 but after my second questionable four pack in less than six months Iím a little disappointed . Iím not sure if I have ended up with two batches that have sat on the shelf for to long or if itís a quality control issue. I have not been able to find best before details on any of the samples I have, itís possible the shops selling them rubbed them off but itís ridiculous for a brewery to sell an APA for 20 - 22 buck a four pack without this info. Ok so I have had this beer when it was an extremely well balanced session pale ale, pours well with a nice head and just a little lacing and gives a good citrusy nose (not a dry hop nose but good). Itís not a hop bomb but it does balance the hops and malt very well and I could drink these all day long, the typical Centennial and Cascade characters (citrus and grapefruit) normally shine through on the pallet with the late bitterness you would expect from Centennial. In the questionable batches the hops have been virtually non existent. On the plus side, in these samples i can vouch for the malt character and itís pretty good, way to sweet and difficult to drink much of at all but like I said when itís good itís very good. For the price they are charging for this beer I expect way more. I will still buy again but if I get another bad batch I will be switched off for good I think.
