I didnít realise this is such a good beer. Drank out of the stubby, pour into a glass next time. Nice aroma of citrus hop, well-balanced even sweet taste. nice, mild pine bitter finish. Reminds me of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale

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, Itís an abrupt finish, but enjoyable while it lasted.

Not bad, not bad. At first I was a little skeptical as the head was modest and aroma a bit funky. Poured at a good temperature with a smallish, cream-colored, thick, short lived head and some lace. Color is a clear honey amber with bubble trails. Aroma is malt, barn yard, funk. Flavor is way better with resiny hop in front, then tang, then a nice dose of sweet to balance. This beer grows on me the more I drink it, esp. if I ignore whiffing it. Body is very good; ditto carbonation. Finish is like flavor, of average length, no off qualities, super drinkable. Bravo!

First impression on opening, getting hit by cascade. Looks great in the glass; deep amber with creamy, persitant off white head. Cascade and caramel. Didnít notice the ABV. Good body, i really liked this one.

Great Copper to amber colour with beige head. Looks and smells enticing. Sweet citrus cascade hop aromas really spicey and delicious mmmmmmmm. Some caramel and coffee at the start then the citrus hops then a well rounded bitterness. All works well together and crafted extremely well. A top effort.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2012 330mL bottle pours golden with a creamy lasting head and an amazing sweet lemon/lime aroma. This is my re-rate of this beer and iím so glad i decided to try it again because its blowing me away. The sweet citrus flavours are backed by some quality malts. The best before on this bottle is 3.1.12 so iím guessing its only 1-2 months old.

Bottle. Good APA. Aromas of grass, and roasted malt. Taste has a sweet start, with bitterness taking over for a long finish. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Orange, with a frothy white head.

A brew that exceeded my expectations. Looked good, smelled good, and tasted better than good. Will definitely try other beers from this brewer.
