330ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium chestnut, with a smallish off-white head, which lasts fairly well but does not leave much lacing. The main notes in the aroma are biscuit and charry malt, with some mild resin hops. Fruity and resin hops introduce it, with some lime playing around the edges. Biscuit and burnt caramel malt in the mid-palate, with a touch of resin in the finish. This is a fairly simple pale ale, nice enough, but nothing too exciting.
From bottle @ Yarra Valley Beer Festival, 2017
Pale gold body, reasonably clean.
Not overtly aromatic - citrus, touch of pine, cereal malts.
Medium body, carbonation perhaps a touch high.
Restrained overall flavour - citrus, stonefruit, pine hop, toasty sort of malt - nothing really stands out - except maybe the bitterness, pretty high in comparison.
Entry level offering, easy drinking, not much else. crazymorton (29) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 23, 2015
A great gateway beer i feel. my hop tolerance is much higher so i like it hoppy. but could easily session this Dervock (1506) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 1, 2015
TBottle - pours ruby with a massive head, exploded out of the bottle! Aroma is soapy, grassy and slightly licorice. Taste is slightly sweet with a dry but not overly bitter finish. Palate is pretty smooth and creamy. Soupoftoday (86) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 13, 2014
Not very hoppy for a ’boutique’ pale ale. Slight tropical fruit/galaxy hop profile that is quickly diminished by a strong/dirty bitterness. I don’t know why they would bother releasing this to the public. Tastes like a home brewed pale ale that still needs work. Avoid Danev76 (505) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2014
Nice fruity aroma. Cloudy amber colour with excellent head. Very bitter flavour with a smooth finish. Heavy body with low to medium carbonation.

Not that pale with minimal head retention, citrus nose and biscuit malty palate. Not as "hoppy" as my local beer seller guy led me to believe, but a beer I would drink again donniemillan (102) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 5, 2014
It pours a dark very cloudy brown orange, not much head or carbonation, very strong hops flavour without too much bitterness, combined with the low carbonation makes it a very smooth drink. Rosslew (320) - AUSTRALIA - APR 5, 2014
Certainly fits the bill for an American Pale Ale. Light floral aroma. Looks orange and that taste comes through early. Bit malty. Definitely resin in finish that lingers. Nice Sunday Summer beer.

Not bad aroma. Bitter with caramel. Afraid I’m driving it from the bottle. Drinkable. Low carbonation. mattyhennessy (377) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - JAN 28, 2014
Pours a cloudy brown with a white head. moderate carbonation with a strong malty flavour balanced well with consistent bitterness. Hints of citrus, overpowered slightly by the caramel and toffee flavours. A nice easy pale ale
