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.
Tap at the Birmingham Hotel, Melbourne. Poured a crystal clear light amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is malt, light citrus, woody hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a crisp woody resin hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Served cold in a cold bar. Standard stuff. sccp1910 (250) - BRAZIL - MAR 10, 2017
Uma cerveja saborosa, de forte amargor mas que enriquece o paladar. Cor dourada para avermelhado e aroma envolvente. macca147 (153) - 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. fletchfighters (1519) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 6, 2017
Bottle from the brewery
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.

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 don’t combine. Like a sauce you taste too soon, before all the flavors marry.

Aroma is mostly fruity. Taste is also very fruity but quite hop driven. Some lingering sweetness. Dredd (932) - 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 (224) - 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!

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.
