COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A well balanced, malty ale brewed with pride of ringwood and citra hops, then dry hopped with distinctive Tasmanian Galaxy hops. It’s medium bodied and just bitter enough. It’s made for drinking. Just drinking.

Lacks vibrant bright palate. Medium length. Very malty palate. More English style than American. Good Australian beer.

Crisp copper coloured body with a nice bronze glow and a perfect, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of fresh earthy and grapefruity hops with a nice malt smell and a hint of grass and hay. Medium-bodied; Good balance of malt and hops with some pleasant light resinous and grassy notes with a very mild caramelised sugar sweetness. Aftertaste shows some herbal and grassy notes with a solid and smooth malt backbone. Overall, a nice and relatively light APA with some nice herbal and grassy flavours, but not a horrible amount of hops, which is fine. I sampled this tall (australian styled) 65 cL bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 09-June-2012 for US$8.50 sampled at home in Washington on 17-June-2013.

Very strong floral aroma with a decently bitter hop bite. Interesting carbonation with a slight funk. Pretty good overall.

Barreras (1031) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Pours a light copper color with aroma of floral hops and malt. Taste is clean with a mild hops taste. This beer has a taste of nature with a taste of the aroma of freshly mowed grass left on the palate. A good pale ale with a complex taste.

brokensail (11284) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Pours a clear amber color with a finger or two of off-white head. The nose starts off with a citrus fruitiness and a touch of melon. There’s a nice bit of melon and some floral perfume notes. After the hops fade away, it’s all bread. The flavor is mostly bread with a lot of straw, grass, and floral hops. A light citrus note to it and minimal bitterness. Easy enough to drink, but not terribly good.

Definitely the best Australian beer I have had to date, by quite a fair amount. Very enjoyable, very easy to drink, and definitely one to enjoy again. This is really just on the cusp of being an IPA not an APA but due to the moderate alcohol (ABV), I could have more than one of these...

blipp (6249) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Hoppy flowery aroma, with lighter pale malty notes. The flavor has floral hops, husky pale malts, and some lightly sweet crystal-ish malts. Not bad.

JoeMcPhee (8534) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2012
Tap at Blind Tiger. Pale amber pour. The aroma is a little bit salty with a touch of autolysis there. A softly hippy component along with some pale malt as well. A little bit of light black pepper and a little bit of lingering biscuit flavour. It's okay - but it's seen better days. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
