beardfear (87) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 20, 2011
Pale brown pour with a healthy cloud of sediment. Hoppy aroma profile with both local and Pacific Northwest characters that dont overpower each other: passionfruit, citrus, mango, and a pineyness that seems to cut through as it warms. Light toasty malt beneath, but this is a hop show. Bitterness is medium; a touch less than its Little Creatures/Sierra Nevada brethren. Well attenuated and nicely carbonated. A contender for the best pale ale in the country. Very nice!

allanbowers (93) - melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 20, 2011
This pours with almost no head at all. It is a caramel colour and has hints of caramel in the taste. This is not too hoppy for a pale ale however it has a bitter after taste.

Maris (1408) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 12, 2011
From a 330ml bottle on 12/7/2011. Pours a slightly cloudy golden, with a big head. Has a nice fruity aroma (esp passionfruit) with some yeast and bubblegum notes. Flavour wise, its a little less involving - just a bit of fairly non-descript fruity sweetness, followed by a quite decent hop kick. Not a bad drop.

ndon (857) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2010 overly sweet with a slight tinny flavour. tropical fruits and citrus come through with a light bitterness at the finish. a lot better than their english pale ale, though

davidm (2069) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 22, 2009
Tap. This is a great APA. Aromas of grass, and grain. Flavour is long-lasting, and predominantly bitter. Velvety in the palate, and medium-bodied. Amber colour, with a creamy long-lasting head.

mickmac (484) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2009
Bottle. Pours with a small average white head over a cloudy red gold body. Aroma of grapefruit and passionfruit. Subdued/modest piney-citrus taste. A full bodied-oily mouthfeel.

donfardz64 (538) - Wellington, New Zealand, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 14, 2009
Pours hazy golden, white head. Nice fresh hop aroma - citrusy lemon.
The flavour follows suit with a clean body and zesty hops. A very to-style APA: tasty and refreshing.

hawthorne00 (3598) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 20, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2015 [11/09] Bottle. Pretty cloudy pour with visible sediment. Orange, large off-white head that fades. Grassy hops and cantaloupe nose with some dusty sweetshop aromas. Big late-hopping attack, followed by fruits. Not quite enough malt for balance and slightly bubbly mouthfeel. Could use a little more bitterness at the end, too. But nice stuff - it seems like an expression of the style rather than something thats been tinkered about with to get a result. [3.3]

[12/11] Growler. Nice aromatic hops, but less to back it up. Mango, guava, oranges, again dusty, again could use a little more bitterness. Refreshing.

[12/15] Bottle, from their Advent calendar. Melon, mandarins, mango, spices. Not sure theres any more bitterness than before but its cleaner and maybe a little drier at the end - which kind of comes to the same thing. [3.5]
