3.45/5  rDev -4.2%

Bottle: Good brown bottle, old country-style label.

Appearance: Pours a pleasant amber colour, with a filmy white head of tiny bubbles, that dissipate pretty quickly.

Aroma: Nose has some pleasant citrus characters, but it's all a bit muted. a bit of wood bark, and something slightly astringent

Taste: Pleasant light fruit characters with a soft sweetness like light caramel. It's smooth enough, but quite light in flavour

Aftertaste: Lingers quite nicely, similar taste

Mouth feel: Medium body and carbonation. A bit too much carbonation for the style.

Overall: A nicely presented pale ale, but it is a bit too 'standard' to warrant the high price of $75 a case (2012). Not really enough going on, but for a good sessional beer, it would be very nice indeed if it was around the $55 a case mark.

3.38/5  rDev -6.1%

Pours a pleasant amber colour, with a filmy white head of tiny bubbles, that dissipate pretty quickly to nothingness. Good body. Looks reasonable, but the lack of head is a bit disappointing.

Nose has some pleasant citrus characters, but it's all a bit muted. a bit of wood bark, and something slightly astringent. It's not terrible, but it's not particularly exciting.

Taste is similar. Pleasant light fruit characters with a soft sweetness that comes over a bit like mildly watered-down caramel. Not a lot of anything on the palate, to be honest. It's smooth enough, but pretty bland. Feel is round and smooth.

It's not a bad beer, and it has its good points, but there seems to be a lot missing on it for an APA.

4.08/5  rDev +13.3%

Pours a translucent golden colour. Head is fluffy and just off-white. Good head retention.

Tropical fruits are all through the aroma, typical of the Nelson Sauvin hops used. There is also a slight malt note.

The citric, tropical fruits are abundant in the flavour as well with mango, passionfruit and grapefruit all there. Quite a heavy dose of bitterness for the style but it works well enough. A nice lingering bitterness.

A medium body works well here but this is a high carbonation level which is a little too high and is fairly prickly.

A very good beer. Certainly not a Pale Ale for the sake of a Pale Ale. An unusual hop choice, nice bitterness and a sessionable ABV makes this a drinkable beer.
