Bottle pour. X marks the spot! This APA is superb. Great citrus aroma coupled with a smoothed out mellow carmel malt balance. My new go to!

On tap at the brewery. It poured a golden/yellow color with a white head. The aroma was of lemon, pine, grass and some sweet malts. The taste was of biscuits, malts, citrus, and some pine and resinous bitterness. Very nice.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a slightly hazy very pale yellow color with a small fluffy white head that left good lacing. The aroma was dryish and bitter with vague fruity hops and a touch of herbal hops. The flavor was thin and bitter with sharp fruity and floral hosp with a faint tangy undertone. Medium length finish. Light body. Meh.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The mouthfeel is similar to a session IPA but a little lighter. Spruce hops, a little citrus, medium bitterness. A perfect session beer with plenty of flavor. Would go great with some buffalo wings.

"another brew, another winner from Alesmith. Bright floral hops on the nose and a nice balance between bitter hops and floral (and a slightly sweet fruity malt) in the flavor. not sure what i think of bottle conditioning a pale, though. the carbonation was a little high and tight but it went down smooth. classsic PA look, but for the yeast on the bottom. nice finish. quite good, not quite the best among the best pales...don’t worry Alpha King or Hop Trip..."

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From backlog. Bomber. Pours a mostly clear pale yellow-orange color with a big fizzy head that fades quickly. Big lemony aroma, somewhat musty. Hints of pine and malt. Taste is lemon zest and very light pine. Fizzy carbonation and lemony taste make it seem like a Belgian blonde. Overall, it’s decent and unique but I probably won’t buy again.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Bishops Arms, Helsingborg. Aroma is very hoppy with sides of grass and hay, and it smells very nice. Pours a hazy pale orange colour with a medium white head. Taste has some subtle hops, with a fresh taste of citrus and some grass. Overall one of the better APA I’ve ever had, definitely worth a tryl
