COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Intensly hoppy pale ale, bursting with the scents of Aussie and American hops. Brewed with the addition of wattle seeds and smashing any ideas that low abv, means low flavour, and will drink like a beer twice its strength. Your new favourite!

TedE (397) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 26, 2015
330 ml bottle into schooner glass. Very active out of the bottle, we got a live one here! Calms down to reveal a murky orange beer with high carbonation and a solid white head. Faint fruity hop nose. Taste is bitter and grainy (is that the wattle?). Finish is an increasingly intense bitterness. Itís good, itís interesting. Hard to believe itís only 4%.

Niksko (442) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 20, 2015
Pours cloudy golden with a fine off white head. Nose is tangy grapefruity, lime, lemon peel, a little straw. Flavor is more of the same, limey, lemony, a little grapefruit, finish is more lemon pith, a bit of caramel on the side of the mouth. Thereís a little bit of carbonic acid bite to this, and the body is surprisingly full for such a low ABV and pretty high carbonation beer. Tasty, not overly complex, enough body so that you donít think youíre drinking a 4% beer. I like this.

floydian1 (1138) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 26, 2014
330ml bottle with expiry 9/2/16. Pours clear golden with an ample sized sustainable foamy white head. Citrus and pine hops dominate the nose with similar notes on the tongue before a substantial lingering dry hop bitterness at the finish. Certainly packs a lot of hoppy flavours for an ABV of 4%. Refined light-medium bodied palate with a lively mouthfeel. An excellent quaffable American style pale ale.

Brenhophead (640) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 2, 2014
330mL bottle. Pours golden with a sudsey white head and nice carbonation. Very nice floral/berry aroma and it has lots of resinous/citrus hoppy flavour for such a low strength beer. Nice one.

maneliquor (3409) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle from Mane. Gusher. A fairly citric and grass driven pale. Not as sessionable as I would have expected being a 4% brew. Not bad but nothing I would revisit

Hop_Hedonist (308) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 16, 2014
Tap at Sail & Anchor. Love the style - low malt - hop dominant - light body = refreshing - bitter finish which lingers very pleasantly - good flavour for 4% - fantastic quaffer on a warm day like today. Btw, this is NOT a pale lager as stated by some moron above - itís an APA through and through and true to style.

Davros (2229) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2014
Pours gold with a large white head. Nose shows floral and fruity hops along with a grassy notes and some soft sweet clean malt. Bitter flavorus with very little supporting malt. Some grainy, cereal-like notes. More grassy and spicy hops.

Sevenlee (1538) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - OCT 12, 2014
Pours a clear amble colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, citrus and hops. Taste is light to medium sweet leading to a surprisingly hoppy finish. Very good session beer and quite surprising.
