3.34/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Hazy dark amber color with a small white head. Fair head retention.

Light aroma. Touches of citrus but there isn't really much here.

Slightly sweet malt. Very light bitterness. Mild citrus. Disappointing.

Medium body with moderately high carbonation. Okay.

A decent pale ale but a pale imitation of an IPA.

Taste off against their Pale.
IPA wins but really neither are winners.
Moderate hop addition to Pale but still all bread on nose, and somewhat stale hops only come on thru the taste.

2.13/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2

Format: a standard 330mL brown bottle with a reasonable semi-macro label.

Appearance: pours out a clear dark amber-gold with visible chunky carbonation. A haif-finger white head drops away fairly quickly to a thin ring.

Aroma: smells of bitter. Not bitter citrus hops, or pine hops - just a really awkward bitterness.

Taste: bleugh! That awkward bitterness fug is even stronger here - quite hard to drink. A lot of breweries forget that strong hops should still have some flavour - this is a good (or bad?) example.

Aftertaste: lingering awkwardness. This is a really hard beer to drink.

Mouth feel: a light- to-moderate feel with a chunky carbonation that feels a bit awkward. I wonder if it would be better if the flavours were better.

Overall: I was quite a fan of Red Island's Quiet Deeds Pale Ale, however their IPA falls way short. Very little flavour other than an awful bitterness that has no flavour. Add to that a price of around AU$80 a case of 24 x 330mL, and this is one I will be steering clear of for good.
