3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can (curiously from WA - looks like they have a presence there too). Amber with an inch of off-white head. aroma of bread crusts, peach, flowers, mango and other ripe tropical fruit. Sweet with toffee and bread but the stone and tropical fruit don’t disappear at all, and there’s a lightening orange, pepper and floral note that comes through towards the moderately bitter finish. A very satisfying drop - rather ESB-like with deft Australian hop accents.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
With malty caramel, toffee and citrusy hop aromas, the Young Henry’s Hop Ale pours with a nice Amber colour. However, the finish is thick and long which spoils it for me a bit. Overall though a good beer.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber in colour with a thick and long lasting off white head. Smells quite sweet, toffee and stone fruit with a very faint pine scent in the background. This is way more malt driven than i expected, the toffee aroma presents well in the taste also, with pine and grassy hop flavours balancing the malt. It doesn’t taste bad but something in the balance is a little off and there seems to be a lingering perfume aftertaste. Mouthfeel is thick enough and adequately carbonated but the aftertaste almost spoils any of the pleasent mouthfeel post drinking.

From a can. Pours deep amber with a thin tan head. Aroma is resin, earthy, citrus and a bit of grass. Body is medium with low carbonation. Taste has a heavy malt back bone. Lots of caramel, honey and dried nuts accompanied by resinous and citrus hops. Nice beer

Pours copper with a large head.
Malty aroma, lots of caramel and resinous hops with a hint of booze. Very sweet-smelling.
Sweet flavours too, heaps of caramel, some piny and resinous hops.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On a hand pump at Keg and Brew Surry Hills. It pours a hazy amber/orange colour with a thin, white head. It is low on carbonation as could be expected. The aroma is of malt and oranges. It has a complex taste of malt and mild bitterness from the hops that only slightly registers on the palate. An average beer, but nothing special.

Can from the brewery. had this on day one so super fresh. It isn’t a bad beer by any shout. Reminds me of Creatures IPA with it’s distinct sweetness which is more a citric fruit sweetness. Fairly juicy and mildly zesty. Very fruit driven and I like it. Solid stuff

On tap at Scratch Bar August 2013. Good beer with golden amber colour. Not overly hoppy and not too boozy which is sometimes a good thing.

Growlers from the brewery
Dark amber orange color. Off white head that falls to zilch.
Nose is mostly toffee and bread. Muddled hop nose. Some peach, orange, and mango. Odd nose.
Taste is odd as well. Grassy, with notes of lemon and big caramel malt body.
Medium feel medium chewy body. Well hidden alcohol but just a muddled beer all around
