Maris (989) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2010
From a 500ml bottle on 21/12/2010. Pours golden, with just a tiny bit of sediment evident. Has a pleasant and quite strong aroma of floral and citrus hops, and a little honey. Starts off with sweet fruit (apricots), along with some biscuity malt and some honey. Has a very solid and quite dry hop finish, with a lingering grapefruit like aftertaste. A very nice APA, and impressive for something which is only 4.5%. Classy packaging too.

davidm (1928) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 2, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2010 Tap at the local taphouse. Great beer. Aromas of grass, flowers, caramel, and a hint of citrus. Taste has a long, bitter finish. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Yellow, with a frothy head.

bmeup (520) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - SEP 27, 2010
Amber gold, thin off white head. Sweet fruity apricot/peach/citrus aromas. Lots of citrus taste and quite a hoppy bitterness that has some pleasing pepper and zing to it. Little thin but lenghty finish. Hoppy & different, like it.

mkel07 (3387) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2010
500ml bottle. Wow. Big creamy head atop a dense golden body with large bubbles making up and settling quickly. Bursting with big juicy hop aroma that are floral, piney and oh so good. Flavour is robust with a citrus aftertaste and tangy fruitiness that lingers.

jonno (2322) - JAPAN - JUL 30, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2010 A pretty decent APA by way of Kiwi hops, which seem to have a rough round the edges quality - more so than your ’3 cs’. Nose was pineapple and pine through a garden shed and the mouth was similar.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2010
Bottle. Lovely honey-gold hue. Aroma of lychee, mushroom, lemon rind, earthy hop. Forthcoming aroma. Thin body with light carbonation. Nice lemony-dry flavors with floral accents and a crisp hop bitterness in the finish. Decent session beer.

Oakes (12552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 22, 2010
Golden - a little bit dull. Thin head. The aroma is a little bit medicinal and a tiny bit citrusy. A light bit of bitterness. This has a hint of herbal hop. Fairly dry, crisp and slightly lemony finish.

Palate: medium to full body, slightly creamy texture, average carbonation, and short bitter finish. Overall: Very hoppy, fills the mouth. Aftertaste is pleasantly yeasty.
