Pours a dark amber colour. Wonderful thick and creamy white head that hangs around for a while. Very light aroma, almost not present at all. Flavour of hops and light fruit. Has quite a creamy texture in the mouth, and leaves a bitter aftertaste.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2015 I think I was a bit harsh on this one the first time, much better than the first one. Decent hop flavour, nice bit of malt, good stuff.

Massive citrus hops aroma, quite a surprise.
Pours amber, flat head.
Taste medium bitterness,
Being tasting so many average beers its good to get one above the average.
Oily Texture, It’s an abrupt finish, but enjoyable while it lasted.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle- Pours a a rich amber color with a good head that fades to nice lacing. Aroma of citrus and pine with some malt sweetness in the background. Taste of mild pine with an easy malt sweetness and bit of spice. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Medium body, smooth with a bit of character. Nicely balanced. A quality Pale Ale, good for a few. Worth checking out.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
One I’ve tried a few times with differing results. Definitely comes across as one that’s better quaffed fresh at the brewery as the hops don’t quite pull off what they set out to achieve.
5 on 5 for appearance. Radiant and shimmering, fiery copper body with minute flecks of proteins in suspension. Very fine, intermittent carbonation holds steady a two-finger, dense and satiny smooth, off-white crown that manages some solid lace-work. Sticky, sweet toffee and cereal-like toasted malts dominate the aroma with a grassy and citrus fruit edge. Quite grainy, dry and cereal-like on first sip. Citrus is reserved to the bitter side, like under-ripe oranges and lime zest. Assertively bitter, herbal, dry and grassy finish to it drops off without a trace. Yeasty also, mildly sulphurous but nothing too alarming. Shows good balance, a light body and moderate carbonation. Easily knock back a few without too much effort.

Pour a clear amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma is cirtus hops. Taste is also citrus, light fruits leading to a modest bitter finish. Slightly watery. Overall, not bad.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours nicely with a solid white head and a rich copper tone. Not a strong head retention. Nice aroma and strong orange-like taste on top of mouth. Seems more like American pale ale.
