3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Quite tasty. Copperr body with a thin white head. Very nice aroma of floral hops, grapefruit, and some caramel sweetness. Smooth and surprisingly sweet. The malty sweetness introduces itself first and fades slowly to a mildly bitter finish with grapefruit and a hint of pine. A delicious, easy to drink beer.
From Oct 2005
Poured a clear gold with a very good head that persisted.
The smell was at first, all hops but then I noticed some malt there as well
The taste is a nice balance of malt and hops with a grapefruity note. A lot of flavour for an APA and that's a good thing because I know I'll buy this one again. TedE (1480) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2017
355ml can into pint glass. Pours a golden bronze with an enormous white head. Medium carbonation with tiny bubbles. Nose has cardboard, pepper, wood shavings, doughnuts, dark fruit, dark chocolate. There’s a lot going on. Quite light in texture with a cleansing taste. Finish is subtly bitter with a herbal/mint edge to it. Nice understated APA, easy drinking. madquacker (1166) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - DEC 25, 2016
Deep brownish hue with a couple of fingers of a foaming head. Nutty and grainy and all round great on a hot day. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - AUG 17, 2016
on draft at brewery, light and clean. High drinkability, some light hoppy flavors, very clean and has appeal to the masses. ogre71 (359) - Utah, USA - MAR 31, 2016
Big Sky Brewing got it right with this one. Its good has lots of smooth matly flavor not overly hoppy, would reccommend.

Can 0,33l. Pours bright golden colour with a white head of large bubbles. Aroma of citrud and spruce on the nose, quite highly carbonated, malty/biscuity background that is well balanced with piney hops.

Hop malt aroma. Clear Amber colour fair head and lacing. Malt hop Curtis flavour. Smooth palate. Pyobon (1496) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2015
(Can) Clear amber with small off-white head. Nice aroma - lemon, grapefruit and pine. Medium body, slightly sticky, with frothy carbonation. At the start the taste matches the aroma - citrus and pine, with some sweetness, although not particularly malty. Some hop bitterness develops at the end. Pleasant easy drinking but somehow not quite balanced.
