Good solid easily drinkable beer. Not extreme in any way but well balanced all around. Just slightly fruity, crisp and refreshing.

Looks Ok with little to no head. Moderate fruity aroma- There’s guavas in there! Superbly balanced in the mouth and all works well. A good ale.

It has a really nice, dusty aroma of grapefruits, rockmelon, musk stick and a hint of dust. The hops are prominent but very smooth in the mouth. The main letdown is that it’s a little watery and a little short.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2014 Bottle. Lightly hazed orange amber with a short head. Has a strong orange marmalade Cascade hop aroma with softer touches of pine resin, spice mix, celery seed, leafy greens and grapefruit softened slightly by a faint yeast note. Medium body, semi-sweet with moderate bitterness. Creamy and fluffy carbonation delivers juicy hop oils across the tongue in a velvet soft washing. Exceptionally clean with salivating juiciness brought on by nectary hops and Maris Otter-like malt (a guess but it has that pastry and cherry and toast character that I love in that malt). Lovely stuff beginning to end. ParrotDog is proving themselves adept at making clean, soft, characterful beers.

A body that wasn’t, even from a lighter ABV I expected a little more from this beer. The Hops are well expressed and a bit of an "Orangie" note is the prevailing aroma. The saving grace really, a session beer aimed at being a top end session beer. I think it falls short in a few ways.

The head is good, the body brown. It smells sweet, hoppy, aromatic, bit dry. The taste is hoparomatic, dry, bitter, flowery.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Nose is very marmaladey and doughy. Loads of honey. Sweet tasting with heavy honey and light grass. Very sweet and one dimensional. Not my kind of pale

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours golden orange with a short, white head. Aroma of lime, passionfruit, honey and a light mango sweetness. Flavours are quite acidic - lots of lemon, lime, passionfruit, kiwifruit and a whack of honey malt. Really sweet, lots of bitterness too. Weird balance, average beer without being shit.
