3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle from Zesty Edibles at Gympie. Poured a nice coppery colour unfortunately with very little aroma. Disappointing in that respect. However, was nice and hoppy with a nice bitter finish but I was hoping the Sauvin Hops would show forth a little more on the citrus taste side. Unfortunately no but still a good beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2013
330 ml bottle bought at YATA in Grand Century Place, Mong Kok.
Clear amber colour; Half finger head and off white foam which last for 30 seconds; Good sticky lacing with notable slight carbonation; Fragrant aroma of sweet ale malt, with fresh grapefruit, orange blossoms, citrus, molasses, canned fruits, pine trees and faint grass; Mid to light sweet taste of ale malt, with grapefruit, citrus, pine, strong liquorices, strong lime and grass; Mid to light body, quite thin but slick palate; Mouth Feel is strong, soft-blow bitterness dominates, with moderate grapefruit took the backseat. Moderately malty and good piney in a rather thin but solid background; Hoppiness is fragrant grapefruits, orange blossoms, pine and lime in nose and taste, and a really strong but soft, un-German bitterness for a lasting finish; Quite dry after taste, limey and bitter to mouth.
Comments: A solid APA, and I was expecting more with the advertised American and NZ hops, but it wasn’t to be: fruity taste and aroma is modest, not mind blowing, and its body is a little thin. Still, it has a pretty sharp bitterness, and good piney nose and taste. Overhyped but still worth a try.
