5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
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...

Pretty solid "IPA" a little less hoppy than a west coast but goes down great.

In bottle onya Craigo! Pours a dark golden colour with a decent beige head. Big hop aroma of pineapple, passion fruit, pine and barley. Wonderful juicy hop flavour of bubblegum, passion fruit, caramel and barley. Mid carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Nicely bitter and very tasty.

8.99 at bevmo. nice little diddy, but a little pricey for an every dayer. ill get a couple more though while its fresh, cause it is a good beer. has proper carbonation, but not much of a head. as for the aroma and flavor, i mean cmon. citra, galaxy, and whatever the hell pride of ringwood is, and it is good, make a delicious and super fruity and sweet flavor profile. its not all that bitter, but its a good beer overall.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle from Bevmo. Pours a translucent copper-reddish color with a small beige head that dissipates to a fine film. The aroma is moderate in strength with musty citrus, pine, barley and a bit of sweet caramel. The taste is pleasantly biter with pine, oranges and grapefruit set in caramel malt base that has fair complexity and some nuttiness. The palate was medium with lively carbonation. The finish was long with lingering biter-sweet walnuts. Overall: Wow--quite possibly the best Aussie beer that Iíve ever had.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on 9/2/2011. This American Pale Ale pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel, fruity and sweet, with a touch of hops. A medium bodied American Pale Ale. The malts are toffee, caramel, fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy, floral and melon. Nice carbonation. Good balance. A touch of tea. A touch of sweetness. Very nice drinkable beer. Definitely NOT either an American or English Pale Ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
