4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a clear golden colour with sizable white head that dissipates to a small white covering that laces the glass quite nicely. Aromas are pine, citrus, sweet malt. Flavors are grapefruit, pine, medium bitterness, bit of malty sweetness. Overall a very smooth flavorful beer.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Amber coloured with orange marmalade and toffee flavours, a creamy mouthfeel followed by a bitter pine and orange finish. Excellent!

A perfect example of the Aussies doing American Pale Ale well. Beautiful hop profile, hoppy but not overly aggressive with a good malt backbone.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden amber color with a white top that leav s some lace. Aroma is a big burst of citrus, pine needles & grapefruit. Taste is much of the same with a present but very smooth bitterness that balances very well with the malts.

This not only has fantastically fruity, citrusy, flowery hops, but also has a deep malty character and a long bitter finish that leaves you ready for the next mouthful. I took my time.

Lovely still, not quite as fruity as the original american hops based APA. Similar pine & skunk depth though and shovels of citrus flavours.

Great fruity aroma - not quite as intense flavour - great bitterness - well balanced - solid APA but needs more personality.
