VinegarStroke (261) - 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.

Rosslew (180) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 1, 2014
Pours with lovely fluffy head that has good lacing. Grapefruit smell. Nice but not strong. Bit darker than most pale ales but in keeping with American style. Gentle in the hops. Nice bitter finish with hint of orange. Gets better the longer you drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(30-Dec-2013) Sweet fruit hop aroma. Cloudy light brown amber colour, suds lacing and ok head. Prominent hop and light sweet malt flavour. Big hop finish and a bitter aftertaste.

Jado (487) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - OCT 7, 2013
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a clear orange-amber with a small but lasting white head and generous carbonation. Aroma is peach, lemon, flowers, spice and passionfruit with a hint of malt sweetness coming through. The taste starts off with peach and apple, before a zesty grapefruit bitterness kicks in. Medium bodied. Mostly clean finish but leaves a pleasant citrus aftertaste. Good Aussie pale that dances on the border of being an IPA.

mattyhennessy (253) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2013
Darker in colour than most pale ales. Off white head. More hoppy than most APAís. Citrus flavours are present, particularly grapefruit and lemon. Quite standard body with a medium carbonation. A solid pale ale. But not the greatest.

downender (6134) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle. Golden with a slight white head. Aroma of grapefruit and tropical fruits, with a touch of malt sweetness. Flavour had a lot more fruit, plenty of biscuity malts and culminated in a dryish finish. Good.
