Pours a cloudy orange-gold color with a decent amount of foamy head that takes a while to disappear. Smells heavily of citrus and passionfruit and a tiny bit yeasty. The taste is fairly sweet with a nice hoppy bite at the end. There's also a hint of passionfruit in the flavor. The mouthfeel is very creamy and thick, especially for a pale ale. Overall, it's a very drinkable beer, and wouldn't mind having more of it.

3.45/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a murky amber orange in colour with a firm white head that persists.

Very strong fruity hop aromas mix with some yeast and bread notes - greapefruit, melon and other tropical notes. Yeast aroma increases with time. Very nice.

Palate is fruity with some maltiness on the finish. Bitterness is a little tough, throwing it out of balance somewhat.

A little thin on the body which is masked by an overly carbonated mouthfeel. Far too many bubbles in this.

Great aroma, ok palate, crap mouthfeel. Out of whack bitterness and carbonation reduce the drinkability of what could be a good drop.

3.83/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4.5

Cloudy, unfiltered, yellow-orange coloured body, with a huge yellowish head of coarse-bubbled solid foam. Looks extremely carbonated, with a huge froth of head and lots of streaming carbonation.

Lightly aromatic fruit notes on the nose, hints of guava and starfruit. It's a tangy sweet-and-savoury character. Hints of grain cut through as well, giving a nice bread character to it. It's quite subdued, but quite pleasant.

Taste is pretty subdued as well, with a crisp but short hop bitterness and a grainy, organic character on the back palate. The more I drink it though, the more I feel it's really nicely balanced. Great mix of grainy malt and fragrant hops. Mouthfeel is overcarbonated, though, leaving it too prickly and frothy.

But overall, this is a very nice, if not extreme, pale ale. Refreshing and clean, smooth and tasty. Exceptionally drinkable.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

Cloudy orange hue with a decent head woth reasonable retention. Big pungent grapefruity hops aromas, with an accompanying very bitter taste. Quite a bit of caramel-like maltiness, but it does not seem to integrate with the hops, as if there is a separate layer of malt sweetness trying to make up for the bitterness, rather than the flavours coming together. The bitterness gives a good lingering finish. The mouthfeel is good with a just enough carbonation (for my taste anyway). Overall, a bruiser of a beer with lots of hops, but a bit of a simpleton. Not one I'll come back to I'm afraid.

Dark golden, almost orange colour. Pours with very little head. Leaves very little lacing.
The citrusy hop smell is definantly there but personally, I think it could be hopped up a little bit more. A bit of the malt also comes through on the nose.
Very malty taste with only a slight hop bitterness.

Overall I found this beer a little bit unbalanced. Still a nice beer but with a few slight changes could be a great beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

The beer pours dark gold and the head has a strange greyish hue.
The smell is potent Melon fruits and flowery hops: Great
The taste refects the smell The bottle staes it has a strong mlt profile and packed with hops.It does all of that.
This can be added to the list of wonderful Pale Ales that are available to us.
Will we be spoilt for choice?
