Coppery red under a tight 10mm beige cap. Fruity notes of apricot, sweet raisin and feint pine. Very pleasant bitterness and malt balance. This is a very good APA.

DylansDad (449) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 15, 2015
Sweeter end of citrus, a bit of floral shot through with lime on a brass/ caramel malt and lemon coming through at the end. Caramel increases as it warms.Light body. Good stuff.

Burnt orange with small head. Slight grapefruit and peach aromas. Full bodies with some malt to chew on and plenty of tropical fruit at the front. Short lived bitterness that isn’t unpleasant. Solid pale.

Not a good beer. Terrible after-taste. As someone else mentioned, loses carbonation.

A bit on the dark side, but plenty of citrus tartness and hop bitterness to go around. Malts shine clean throughout.
