Aroma is mostly fruity. Taste is also very fruity but quite hop driven. Some lingering sweetness. Dredd (953) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - NOV 13, 2016
Nice light pine aroma, copper pour with thin white head. Easy drinking flavor with some citrus notes, biscuit malt and balanced bitter finish. wrlangin (226) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 5, 2016
Draft at Hop and Pickle on Southbank in Brisbane. Deep ruby color. Very little aroma. Flavours are more robust than expected and are a nice balance of citrus and pine. A pleasant surprise.

Aroma: High hops, pine, resin, citrus, fruity.
Appearance: Brilliant, amber body. Medium, off-white head, fair retention.
Flavour: Medium-high citrus, fruity. Medium resin, but not heavy. Medium-light bitterness. Medium-light balancing maltiness. Dry finish with lingering resin.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Hop forward, but not overpowering or excessively bitter. Color is slightly too dark for a pale ale, and head retention can be better. Maltiness balances the beer, but it lacks a bit of bitterness, making the beer not as crisp as it should be.
330 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Brendan!
18B. American Pale Ale. danjs5 (259) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2016 A favourite. From a bottle. Very drinkable and pleasant beer. A hit of bitter coal tar, pine nuts, sweet pineapple and citris. Sweet flavours with malt layer. Enjoyably complex, yet smooth and fruity. Aromas of fruit and hops. Amazing beer.

(Bottle from BWS Broadbeach) A bright clear copper pour with an average white head and some lace. Aroma is lightly sweet honeyed malt, floral, pine, pale stone fruits, grapefruit peels, a bit musty and skunky. Flavour has lightly to moderately sweet malts, dark honey or light caramel character, biscuit, pine, grapefruit pith, floral, wet grass and green onion, skunky. Slightly toasted, herbal spicy oniony finish is dry and lightly bitter. Light to medium bodied, active carbonation. A decent enough pale ale, a touch malty and not that bright a hop profile but it’s rather dry and thus drinkable. mcberko (18429) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 8, 2016
On tap at 4 Pines, pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out biscuity malt and light floral notes. Flavour brings out biscuity malt and floral hops. Dry and well-balanced but forgettable. Decent. Gonzin (187) - ARGENTINA - APR 19, 2016
Probada en botella de 330 ml en Port Douglas, Australia. Buena Pale Ale con pronunciado sabor a pino, malta y cítricos.

Tastes kind of like my sister.... someone relatable that i spend a lot of time with, but if i spend too much time with her it just starts getting weird. tomgorm (47) - maroubra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 15, 2016
Light carbonation and fine head with a deep clear ruby-gold. Pine and citrus aromas are strongest, some musty notes present. Mild bittnerness. Nice
