3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
APA by Amager in collaboration with Three Floyds. Very thick and frothy (hops-enhanced), thickly membranous lacing, irregular, off-white head over a lightly hazy, deep warm orange coloured beer turning into a misty amber with sediment added. Lovely and lively aroma of mandarins, fresh orange peel, lychee, pink grapefruit, biscuit, bell pepper, sweet paprika, marmelade, unripe mango, cantaloupe, vanilla sugar, lightly toasted bread, redcurrant, subtle hints of dry earth, wormwood, pine, tonic water and barbecued chicken. Crisp onset, lots of citrus freshness (mandarin) with sweetish (mango, pineapple) and sourish (gooseberry, starfruit) components well balanced against each other and remaining sufficiently ’clean’, spritzy and initially slightly numbing, minerally carbonation, supple caramelly and biscuity malt body, sweetish but not (too) sweet, very lightly toasted to support a growing hop character, spicy, citrusy and floral, but remaining primarily aromatic as it should be in an APA; the bitterness as such is long-stretched and cleverly dosed, but gentle and mellow, so that juicy maltiness and the initial fruitiness remain equally important. Clean, very aromatic, utterly elegant, completely flawless, light and smooth and extremely quenching, this is an exemplary APA by all standards, the high quality standard of both breweries is undeniable here. The only thing that is out of line here, is the name, because this is a sunny beer in more than one respect rather than ’arctic’... Glad I bought this.

This beer did very little for me. A lot of exotic fruits and citrus, but I think this is a pale APA (pun intended).

Lots of tropical fruit, passion fruit, mango, pineapple, guava, yeah, lots. Perfect malt/hop balance for an APA, super high drinkability despite the alcohol and IBU. A top APA by any measure

I wasn’t that thrilled with this. Pours a rich amber color. Has an aroma and flavor profile that struck me as a bit English--caramel and fruit, with some dull hop effects and an unpleasant astringency. I see now on the ingredient list that it uses a UK-ale yeast. I totally get that. On tap at Ørsted Ølbar, Copenhagen.

Hazy orange color with off-white stable and creamy head. Aroma of citrus, pineapple, hops. Very nice aroma. Taste is sweet with short lightly bitter finish. Very good beer, where everything is balance. Only negative think is, that the taste good be stronger.
