Can from Rehills, Newcastle. Cloudy amber coloured with a thick white head. It has an orange, tropical fruit and pine flavour followed by a smooth, zesty fruity orange, malty and toffee finish. Excellent!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Bakgården Både &, Kristiansand. Unclear, dark orange body with a thin, lacing tan head. A bit weird aroma, fruit, malt and ashtray. Flavor is sweet malt, some caramel, general fruitiness and quite bitter. God balanced body and mostly bitter aftertaste. Decent, quite general IPA, but seems to miss some freshness. Might be a bit old?

Back in the day 22oz bottle. Pours out a hazy golden topped with a white head. Nose is orange tropical fruit notes some pine and a biscuit malt. Taste is more of the nice hop mix and light malt.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Into a tulip, chilled. Settles a burnished orange and hazy with a lot of proteins caught in suspension. In fact it looks like a fresh squeezed fruit in the fact that it is completely still. Head is little more than a sheet of white atop. Aroma of nettles, pine, eucalypt and kaffir lime leaves. Yeasty on the palate. Bready and sweet with licks of diacetyl butterscotch and biscuity malts. Medium bodied and heavy in the finish with a rough, chunky hop profile that is assertively bitter and acrid, and reminiscent of a over-hopped home brew. Grassy, weedy and herbal with ill malt and yeast tones. This one does nothing for me so I do hope this was just a dud can. This would be below average ten years ago. Ugh!!! (12fl.Oz can, unknown date stamp, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 ml can.
Pours cloudy orange color with a large, lasting head. Malts and resin on the nose, mild pine notes, orange, tropical fruits and hops. Sweet orange and pineapple on the flavor, mild grapefruit notes, citrus and resinous hops, some malt backbone. Probably not very fresh anymore, hops feel a bit muted, otherwise decent.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from Mitsuya. Simple malt-forward nose without many hops. Slightly infected on the palate, but not overly so. The infection kind of melds with the beer and brings out a bright tangy overripe citrus flavor. Sweet and tangy but feels a tad heavy. Infected but still not terrible.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Really enjoyable if you want something more complex than a pale, but not over the top like a hoppy West coaster.
Aroma of pine cones, slight molasses. Low carbonation, nice balance of bitterness, not very malt. Very easy and pleasing beverage!

12 oz can from Hippo Beers. Hazy orange brown, lot of sediment. Boiled sweet hop aroma. Bitter tropical fruit & hop flavour. Very sharp with bitter lime aftertaste. Too bitter and unbalanced.

A thoroughly decent pale ale - well balanced - super easy drinker - could do with more hop flavour but overall an above average brew - sessionable.
