Draught at Platform Bar, Brisbane. Pours amber with a small white head. Aroma of biscuit, caramel and hop notes of citrus, peach and apricot. The flavour is caramel malt, citrus and stone fruit. Medium bodied with a dry and bitter finish. A good APA.

Toffee and biscuits and a underlying grippy grain with a bit of citrus. Long on the palate with plenty of depth. Nice ABV balance. An excellent small batch brew.

330ml bottle b/b 10 Apr 09. Mid bronze good head with huge bubbles. Nice earthy hop aroma with good marmalade touches. Nothing much to begin with in the mouth but grows with a nice biscuit cara malt backing and a good weigh in towards the end with the dry, raw almost cone hop feel. Nice late hop charastics with more than the normal american cascade traits. Could do a few pints of this quite nicely

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear, good looking, amber body although a poor head. I notice caramel more in the aroma than the promised hops. Taste is a little better but not a lot of body or big on flavours, an american pale ale but not one of my favourites.

Dark amber in colour, creamy white head. Big green hop aroma, floral hop flavours, dissapointed in the short mouthfeel.

330ml bottle, BB 19 Aug 08, served chilled. Pours a slightly hazy reddish copper body with white foam. Fragrant hops on the nose, particularly fruity, grapefruit sharpness, peach skins, earthy spice, some toffee malt in the background. Moderately low carbonation, leanish body, slight creaminess about the texture, drying towards a lingering bitter finish. Unripe peach on the body, sharp grapefruit certainly cutting through, hint of tropical fruitiness blending with a faint nutty maltiness. Citrus lingering. Hop dominated APA, one of the better Aussie examples.
