"pours slightly darker than many pales. big aroma of pine and biscuity malts. good balance in the fairly aggressive flavor. quite bitter for a low ibu beer (40). not my favorite pale, especially for the coin, but pretty good."

Rosslew (289) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 14, 2014
Pours with very heavy foam. Be careful on the start. Aroma of orange peel, grapefruit, possibly apricot. Tart bitterness in taste but it very fruity. No issues in mouthfeel and citrus right to the end. Big fan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
