Looks nice with light copper colour
Smells of fruity ale
Good first initial taste however the after taste is very hoppy almost like an oil
Feels very smooth with light carbonation

Overall a decent beer

330ml bottle poured into a pint glass.

Hazy golden color as a showcase, the pour builds up thick frothy white head that withstands with pretty good retention before gradually subsiding to a long-lasting bubble sheet on the surface and leaving some lacing on the glass-side.

Obviously fruity hop in the aroma, it yields notes of citrus, pineapple, green apple, peach, as well as floral and grass. Malt is there too with its husky grain and bread.

The taste is of course led by hop with notes of citrus, pineapple, peach, floral, and grass. Hop runs in good harmony and balance with malt that lends its bread, husk, and some sweet biscuit. Also, hop wraps up again in the finish and moderately lasting in the aftertaste with some bitter kick.

The body is between light to medium with smooth mouthfeel and good lively carbonation, the feeling is crisp and refreshing with a dry finish. Good APA from Australia that is presented in crisp and quite intense fashion.

Lemony and copper with a slight haze, lots of fine bubbles and 2 fingers of off white head.

Smells of wet dog, pineapple candy, fruity peaches, and overall a light bouquet.

Tastes of grainy, dog food malt, and a wonderfully balanced fruit plate, bouquet of flowers. Hints of pine bitterness.

Medium, light and refreshing body, moderate, smooth but foamy and powdery carbonation.

Got in Rimping today, and now drinking it in Chiang Mai. Excited to finally have this brew from Australia. Drank May 8th, 2017.

L: Pours an attractive orange/copper colour with lots of suspended sediment. A half finger of pale head reduces to a thin cap with rings of lacing.

S: Drinking this cold so the nose is light to say the least. New world hops and wet hay.

T: Sweet malts. Understated hops. Gentle bitterness. Doesn't taste like an American pale ale (no citrus/tropical fruit/pine, not bitter). More like a less austere version of an English pale ale. Suggested style therefore is 'Ozzie pale ale'.

F: Smooth. Gentle carbonation.

O: Excellent session pale ale. I'd definitely drink this if it was available in a pub near me. Would like to try it on draught...but I will need to be in Australia for that.
