3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (330ml). Poured copper with a creamy, white head which was average lasting. Good fruity hop aroma with passionfruit and grapefruit, back up by sweet biscuity malts, creamy caramel and roasted nuts. Flavor delivered a decent hop bitterness (fruity) with more passionfruit and grapefruit followed by biscuity malts, caramel, some earthy notes and a roasted nutty finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, a dry/creamy mouthfeel and a good finish. This was a great pale ale and my favriote from the Wicked elf brewery, it seemed perfectly in-between and APA and an EPA.

Quite good beer, pour is a bit lacklustre with little head, colour is a nice dark copper though. Nose is a mix of toffee and peachy stonefruit. Flavour is very clean with a mix of toffee, bread, stonefruit some slight citrus and metallic notes.
Overall a well crafted beer. good mouthfeel and a nice finish.

Aghhh...what Steve said (again!). Restrained and elegant style compared to most APA beers but regardless well made and enjoyable to drink. Nose shows mild hops, some grapefruit and a rusty metal hint. Hoppy again in the mouth, but the softer fruit notes given way to a slightly abrasive bitter / metallic character. But, well within the boundaries of the style. Well worth a look.
