Pours amber with a massive head.
Nose shows stonefruit in abundance, big nectarine and peach notes! Also kumquat marmalade. Pretty nice, quite unusual. Underneath is some faint caramel.
Very similar flavours in the way of fruity hops, however the malt becomes more expressive too with soft bready characters accompanying the heavy-handed crystal malt. The finish is a bit unpleasant, with a harsh, metallic bitterness I've often found in beers using new-world hops for bittering - I wouldn't be surprised if Galaxy was used for this purpose, not just for aroma/flavour.
Body seems a bit syrupy.
Overly sweet (think orange and nectarine cordial) but pretty decent.

I have to admit im always apprehensive about these Australian muscle car brew's but being a Holden fan im keen to see if they can improve on their Ford GT offerings anyway back to the brew it is 5.3% ABV and 32.7 CBU and it pours a nice orange,honey hue with average carbonation that leaves behind a one finger head that slowly fades to leave islands of frothy head just skimming across the top and sporadic clingy lacing,i must admit the smell is abit of a let down with feint aromas of orange zest,very light toffee and some stonefruit hoppy bitterness,the mouthfeel is light-medium bodied and averagely carbonated just enough to let the flavours of citrus,passionfruit,very light toffee and i mean light but just enough to be there as a perfect balancer followed by some lychee and of course a tinge of sticky piney hops right at the finish which makes this brew a beautiful symphony of biiter and sweet,overall after my past few offerings from this brewery this is a massive step up and im stoked but not amazed as i know they are capable of producing some beautiful drops and hopefully this brew is a sign of things to come,keep it up Brewboys i will buy this again for sure.

Possibly the first growler ever filled by Brewboys.

Sweet, fruity, floral hop aroma with notes of tropical fruit. The malt is very soft and not all that crisp and it just falls a little limp.

Like the aroma the flavour is flat and a touch limp. The hop flavour is good, the malt very soft and the bitterness just not quite firm enough.

Clear, golden colour with a small, white head.

Medium body with moderately-low carbonation. Silky.

A reasonable APA. Plenty of flavour it just a pity that it falls flat.

Serving type: growler
