COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nirvana Pale Ale is a hybrid of an American Pale Ale combined with the classic English Pale Ale style to produce a New World Pale Ale. A brilliant golden colour, our pale ale has a fresh citrusy/spicey aroma and flavour, balanced with biscuity/toffee flavours from the malt and finishes full bodied with a complex character and bitterness of selected caramalts are used as well as generous quantities of New Zealand grown Cascade and Hallertau hops.

Bottle -- Cloudy deep orange with a large, fluffy white head with good retention and lacing. Delicious fruity hop aroma. Equally delicious flavour, with a citrussy sourness at the end. There’s something more IPA than APA about it. A beautiful beer that I’ll certainly be buying more of.

motelpogo (6968) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 23, 2014
bottled. light golden with a thin white head; aroma hints at tropical fruit, white grape; light bitterness, slight tart citrus swamped by caramel; would be an ok session beer but i found it over-carbonated after a few sips

On tap at Salamander Shores. Pours golden with a lasting tightly bubbled head, present fruity hops aroma, very smooth with a mild bitterness that grows on you with each sip. A great beer.

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2013
Interesting hop, a little melon and a little orchard fruit but not really either. There is a light hop character and s veneer of balancing pale malt.

Cloudy amber beer, decent white head. Fairly neutral palate, a little crispy. Mild creamy malt. Mild hop. Fresh citrus. Well balanced in it’s mildness! Decent but could do with more ooomph!

A-- Poured a golden wheat color, a little bit of haze to this. Fairly carbonated in the pour. A good 1 finger off white head that kept its head for a good amount of time with a bit of lacing. S-- Mostly grapefruit and citrus smell. Hops are soft and the malt and fruit are bigger. More acidic smelling than others. T-- Large acidic taste. Grapefruit and lemon. Hops do not jump out and grab you like others. Much more malt driven but get a feel of the hops in the taste. M-- Good lively carbonation. Closer to a EPA than an APA but has aspects of an APA. Nice mouthfeel and balanced well with the hops and malt. Very clean finishing and with a bit of a bite at the end. Could be a bigger hop taste to this though. D-- Very drinkable.

Bottle and tap- nice citrus hop aroma. Golden honey in colour, medium bodied and a good refreshing hop bitterness on the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

birraiolo (217) - ITALY - APR 26, 2012
Bevuta in bottiglia. Color oro carico con schiuma media fine e non molto persistente. Prumi erbacei e agrumati, al palato si presenta con una carbonazione molto alta lasciando un leggero pizzicore sulla lingua che in qualche modo copre tutto il resto.

cardofab (229) - Teramo- ITALY, ITALY - MAR 26, 2012
Color Oro, ampia schiuma non compatta, al naso è fruttata (mango, frutti tropicali), al palato è di corpo medio, discretamente luppolata, un pò erbacea con lievi tonalità caramellate. Finale delicatamente amara. Buona.

Sevenlee (1403) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - FEB 7, 2012
Slightly cloudy golden colour with white head. Aroma is citrusy fruit, sweet malt, hops and spices. Taste is also malty with citrusy fruit and some biscuity notes leading to a great bitter finish. Ultra soft mouth feel. Quite nice.
