3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good beer. Plenty of hops on the nose... cascade I believe. Nice bitter feel in the mouth with some caramel malt for good measure. Very enjoyable but not sensational... apparently I only just missed trying it on tap, something which I was assured was better.

First impression on opening, getting hit by cascade. Looks great in the glass; deep amber with creamy, persitant off white head. Cascade and caramel. Didn’t notice the ABV. Good body, i really liked this one.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Vibrant caramel pour with a reasonably sized head that receded rather quickly.
Cascade hops are very prominent in the aroma, very green, citrusy and grassy. Malt is definitely not forgotten, quite sweet and clean, with some hints of caramel, and unfortunately, some grainy notes.
Flavour is hop dominator (that’s what my notes say, perhaps the alcohol is hitting?), again very green, with some of the citrus coming through. Quite a pronounced hoppy bitterness (almost metallic at times, actually) but the finish really seems to be lacking, almost watery.
Good carbonation but a little light on for body.

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.
