6-pack in cans. This is a wonderful APA, with a nice malt backbone (a touch of Munich) and flavorful hops. Cascades aren’t the only hop - there’s a bit of pine and a slightly bitter ending. All told, quite good.

BeErikS (32) - TAIWAN - JUL 25, 2015
Pours deep gold to light Amber with a large, creamy, off white head with good retention. Slightly opaque. Sweet, toasty, caramel malt notes up front give way to slight spicy herbal esters and fruity (orange and pear?) and herbal notes. Malt dominates the initial swig but crisp, herbal hops balance out with a pleasantly dry, slightly astringent aftertaste. Fruity hops linger. Moderate carbonation and a moderate to light mouthfeel with an almost watery finish, which is my sole and mild criticism: mouthfeel is a bit lacking. This is a classic example of a great APA, highly recommend.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3056) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 13, 2015
Can from Ezo Beer served in a shaker pint. It pours a light copper with a dense head of foam. The nose is herbal hobs, parsley, dank, resinous and a bit of sweet caramel malts. The taste is lightly bitter piney/herbal hops with enough malt sweetness to deliver a well balanced pale ale. Satisfying.

lusikka (7102) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2015
355 ml can. Pours a copper amber colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of sweet toffee, bread and citrus. Flavour is rather sweet with toffee, herbal bitterness, citrus and mango jam. Medium bodied and quite soft carbonation. Probably not as fresh as it should be.

djd07 (6056) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 16, 2015
Can. Pours a cloudy orange with thick white head. The aroma is bready malt and grain. Thin mouth, honey malt, toast, crisp finish, decent.

12oz can from tj’s Medford. Orange color w/fat white head. Dominant hop aroma followed by malty medium mouthfeel, then a solid hop bitterness. Good beer.

Ragnampiza (751) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - MAY 24, 2015
355 ml can from Les Vignerons. Dark gold, perfectly clear, with a huge, fluffy, forever lasting off white head. Looks great. On the nose soapy/old hop notes, crystal and pale malts, light graininess, a hint of resinous pine needles and bubblegum. Rather big astringency, slightly harsh bitterness, way more malty than hoppy. Subtle fruity reminiscence in the aftertaste, but it’s all about the malts presence. Average to lively carbonation, light to medium body, creamy texture. I’m sure this is way better fresh, but in these conditions it’s barely drinkable.

erickok (4300) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAY 2, 2015
Golden shiny body and very stable head. Good stuff, hoppy, super fresh. Light drinkable palate yet quite bitter, just how I like it. Typical American fermentation. Good stuff! (33cl can from Beer City)

77ships (5403) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2015
Shared with Kraddel. 355 ml. can sampled @ “Land van de zatte apen” tasting. Purchased @ Caigny. Bottled on 24/09/2014 – rather old now. Hazy orange, little white. Weird bitter hay taste, dust, sugar, mushy,… Taste is bitter floral, papier-mâché, dull light herbal, weak pine, malty sweet, sugar,… Light bitterness. Below average, might be the age.
