3.6/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

This pours a cloudy dark golden colour with a tight slightly off whited head.

Lots of hops on the nose. Some pine resin notes but also tropical fruit - paw paw and mango.

Simialr flavours are there but they don't come through on the palate as well. There is a little bit of sweetness. Would like a bit more bitterness.

Medium bodied.

Loved the nose but could do with a touch more flavour and a little less sweetness.

Pours dark amber with a large, fading head.
Nose shows citrus fruit along with peach, green apple and fruit sherbet. Lovely.
Flavours are not as fruity, instead focussing on nutty and toasty malt. Finish is a bit weak, needs more bitterness.
Could use more carbonation.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a see through golden hue with nice carbonation that leaves behind a two finger frothy head and heaps of lacing,the smell is white grapes,boiled candy and passionfruit,the mouthfeel is very light bodied and has tastes of white grapes,pale malts,a touch of caramel and finished with a light grapefruit bitterness and overall this brew is not very impressive but easy enough to drink cheers.

L - amber, cloudy, pours a white fizzy head . Reasonable retention

S - bit of a mix - slightly roasted biscuity malts, butterscotch, honey, and (to a lesser extent) fruits (apple, kiwi fruit)

T - well balanced - moderate bitterness (which doesn't really show til the end), fruity spikes (think grapefruit, kiwi fruit). Bready malts, more noticable than other pale ales, slight caramel tinge.

M - light to medium bodied, slippery texture (high carbonate content in water?), slightly tart finish, medium carbonation

O - quite a well rounded , sessionable beer. Im taking marks off the overall score due to the cost - $9 for a 500ml bottle (local beer as well) - its way too much. It you see it for half this price, increase the score.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

I had a 330ml bottle.
Appearance: pours cloudy golden to Amber colour with small head but good lacing remains as the beer is well carbonated.
Aroma: a real stand out. Strong passionfruit and grapefruit citrus aroma present. Very nice.
Flavour: very bright carbonation. Nice stringent bitterness to the finish but not overpowering, more than expected however based on brewer's notes on the bottle which states "no harsh bitterness." Good depth to the malt flavours. Very nice.
Overall: nice beer support by great aromas and well balanced flavour and finish.
