2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Cloudy golden colour with a white head. Hoppy, pine, grape, cat piss, hint of plastic. Bitter. Feels rather thin and one dimensional with s sharp bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fresh bottle. Aroma of orange, mandarin, bread, pine, rye?
Pours out a murky almost brown colour with an off white head. Not great looking.
Taste is softly bitter and medium sweet with notes of mandarin, bread, pine. Not that bitter for a Amager brew. Medium body, very easy drinking, soft carbonation, fruity and mildly bitter finish. If you expect the usual more intense bitterness you’ll be dissapointed. This is all about hop flavours, not bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Solid enough, although by no means the the best from Amager. Fairly mellow hops, little carbonation.

0,5l bottle from Beergium, best before 11/16 so not the freshest batch. Pours golden colour with moderate head. Aroma of malts, citrus, fruits, slight caramel. Pleasant to drink.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Prohibition WInes. Pours a hazy golden amber with a foaming white head. Aroma of malt and yeast. The taste has tropical fruit - lime, orange and grapefruit along with lots of pibe resin. Very tasty but a little strong for this style of beer. Dry and bitter finish and a very mouthfilling palate.

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer did very little for me. A lot of exotic fruits and citrus, but I think this is a pale APA (pun intended).

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A light orange beer, a head is quite big and blond. Aroma has lots of tropical notes, mangos, grapefruits, some pine. Taste has mangos, mandarin, grapefruits. Citrusfruits in the taste are quite unique. Medium bitterness. Medium bodied, fresh. Interesting and very good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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
