Coppery red under a tight 10mm beige cap. Fruity notes of apricot, sweet raisin and feint pine. Very pleasant bitterness and malt balance. This is a very good APA.

Uma cerveja saborosa, de forte amargor mas que enriquece o paladar. Cor dourada para avermelhado e aroma envolvente.

macca147 (45) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2017
On tap. Pint. Pours a deep amber, with a minimal white head. Moderate to strong carbonation. Aroma: Mild citrus, pine, and biscuity malt aromas. Not particularly an aromatic brew. Taste: Quite hoppy for a pale ale. Mild citrus and biscuity malt flavours followed by a bitterness that lingers on he palate. A nice brew, and a great easy drinking beer, but there is nothing captivating about this beer. A good pale ale, and would work well with pub food, but not great as a stand alone beer.

Bottle from the brewery 330 ML Brilliant orange amber color, thin, off white head that falls to a small collar. Nose is soft grapefruit, citrus, pine and caramel malt. taste is mostly grapefruit and citrus. Some backing cereal and caramel. Prickly carbonation. medium hop bite and a sharp metallic taste in the back. Nothing that screams out buy me over and over again

Poured from bottle. Light copper color, thin head dissipates quickly. Lots of grapefruit on the nose, a touch of cooked caramel. Mix of flavors - citrus, spice, and sweetness from the malt, but I taste them each individually, they dont combine. Like a sauce you taste too soon, before all the flavors marry.

wrlangin (221) - 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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AtronSeige (1472) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - OCT 26, 2016
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.

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.

neongolden (1385) - Linkping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2016
(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 its rather dry and thus drinkable.
