Billed as "Australian Pale Ale" at Map Room's 19th anniversary.

Super murky orange, opaque and looking like carrot juice from a blender. Thin cap of white foam on top.

Dank citrusy hop aroma, orange peel and light tropical notes, resiny and almost vegetal.

More hop greenery in the flavor, moderate bitterness and citrusy notes. Medium bodied, somewhat malty in the middle with a lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Solid IPA, interesting hop character. Overly yeasty, chunky appearance (likely due to not being settled) but otherwise great.

Served in a shaker pint glass at the brewpub.

Good to see a new beer here, even though I'm not privy to much information about it. Must be too new... Anyway, it pours a cloudy light-amber-gold (kinda reminds me of fresh pineapple juice) topped by a half-finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose is a veritable panoply of fruits: mango, pineapple, watermelon, cantaloupe, grapefruit, mandarin orange, and a bit of kiwi. Some light grass and even lighter pine resin are in there too, but the fruit salad is the main olfactory event here. Very nice, if you ask me. The taste holds notes of orange peel, lemon rind, light honeydew, grass, flowers, pine resin, light balsa, and wax. Honestly, I wish the fruitiness would have carried over more, but it's not too bad in the end. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fairly dry finish. Overall, a very solid brew, a welcome addition to the MF repertoire.
