3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Light orange. This bottle had a huge head that didn't dissipate due to over carbonation. I'll give it the benefit of the doubt. Citrus is the predominant aroma, however it is relatively subdued. Delicious malt body with a gentle sweetness backed by a strong citrus hop element. More English than American which is a welcome change.

Pours a copper colour with a small white head. Medium/high carbonation. Citrus and pine aromas. Some pineapple and passionfruit flavours also, balanced with a slightly complex malt profile. It is distinguishable that this beer uses US and NZ hops. Mild bitterness, making this pleasant

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2014 Re-visited and rated up as my palate has taken a small step up in sophistication. Nice promising aroma, full bodied, high bitterness and reminiscent of tainted Chevron Ecuadorian rainforest water acridness. Quite satisfying. The beer that is. Screw Chevron.

Cask at The Local Taphouse, Melbourne. Cloudy golden. Lychee and pineapple up front. Fairly sweet with medium body and soft mouthfeel. Plenty of tropical fruit. Long salty bitterness. Pleasant!

Spicy hops aroma, malt flavours, smooth, refreshing with a mild bitterness. I like it, drink it cold.

Bit of orange look and has that in taste. Not great in head retention but looks clear in the glass. Not heavy in taste or overtly hoppy. Can taste the citrus late. Unlike its label it doesn't pack a big punch. Would be good to drink with fish meal.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light copper colour with a small white head that lays a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma of american hops; passion fruit, grapes and some grass. Flavour is really piney at first, then some light caramel and some light citric tones. Quite a lot of peach also. Some sourness in there aswell, but not that much. Quite bitter aftertaste. Medium body with a sticky carbonation anf a really dry palate. A good beer indeed.
