Fairly clear, dark straw colour with a creamy white head. Good head retention.

Moderate citrus hop aroma with additional notes of passionfruit and mango.

I get soft, creamy malt and NZ citrus hops in the flavour. There could be a bit more hop bitterness and character.

Medium-light body with moderately-low carbonation. Silky.

A tasty, well balanced APA.

600ml bottle into my mug. 8months out from its best by date and consistently kept cold per recommendations.

Appearance- A golden body with heavy carbonation and moderate lacing. Slightly cloudy from bottle yeast. And a decent head. Smell- A set of weak ripe sweet fruits for the hops and a beady grain malt to it. Taste- A weak disjointed ale with a hop start and not bitterness into a bready malt finish. No citrus or any fruit indicated in the nose. Mouthfeel- A weak thin body with a slickness akin to a lager with an appropriate amount of carbonation. Drinkability- No thank you would not refuse a free pint but this would be low on my list. Not an APA or EPA more like an aquard child torn between two recipes and styles.

Summary- Pass on it

Golden honey body with a dense, off-white head. Bland bready malt aroma with light fruit and conventional hops. Taste is like a light-end pale ale. Some buttery malts and vague, slightly astringent hops. Light-medium, with a creamy feel, and a little soapy. Meh, not bad, but meh.
