ACHops (1328) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 22, 2013
22 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy orange with creamy head that starts fluffy and fades slowly and laces well. Aroma is sweet pale malts with significant citrus notes. Taste is clean bitter malt with juicy orange and grapefruit hop notes on the finish. This isn’t a mild, bland pale ale but rather an aggressively hop forward one. Not real balanced, but I don’t think that’s the point here. Simple and delicious.

Kaunis vaalea olut vaahtoaa kohtalaisesti. Tuoksu ja maku tasapainossa ja varsinkin suutuntuma. Ok.

Gehbe (173) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - AUG 3, 2016
Somewhat cloudy light amber with a nice beige head. Nose of pine, grapefruit, malt, spice, mint. Fairly dry taste with a mellow yet crispy bitterness slightly ahead of sweetness and sourness, very crisp finish. Lovely light palate. My favourite APA so far.

kaserov (103) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 29, 2016
Aroma mínimo pero agradable. Color dorado, más bien oscuro. Ligera capa de espuma que no se desvanece, consistente. Sin mucho rastro de carbonatación. Sabor intenso. Se nota que está lupulada pese a que mi nariz no lo capte. Intensa pero fácil de beber, a la vez con muchos matices. Cada trago es, de alguna manera, diferente. Muy recomendable para beber en cualquier momento.

BrettGT (152) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2016
Bottle. Aroma of honey, toffee, herbs, orange, grass, spice. Pours clear copper with a dense white head. Taste is medium to lightly bitter and sweet. I’m surprised by the unique taste of this one - it has a basil note to it in the taste which at first was weird but actually is pretty good. Otherwise it has bready, herbal, grassy and toffee flavours. Medium body, pretty easy drinking, medium soft carbonation and a grassy herbal finish. I got this fresh for just 2,5 euro - certainly a well deserved, iconic go-to ale.

bunget (816) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2016
Bottle. Deep golden body, big beige head with decent retention. Aroma of caramel malt, herbs, hints of orange jam, basil, honey. Taste of orange zest, grapefruit, caramel and a touch of pine. Classy!

bartlebier (3347) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 18, 2016
About a 6-pack of 12oz bottles every year since 2010-2016; also served during What’s Brewing 101 and sampled at tastings 2016. (This rating based on Bier&Co/Bierlinie import bb02/2017.) - Bref: This quintessential APA’s sweet & zesty aromas and appearance are marked by delicate nuances, its taste is straightforward and of an uncouth simplicity - natural carbonation in league with UK ESB’s tealeafiness makes this extremely moreish and addictive. - Easy parallels drawn to the US character are entirely coincidental. - Ap: lovely orangeat copper, impressive organically dented head. Ar: lemon candy, ice tea granules, flower petals, Thai basil, caramels. T: mainly dry grapefruit and lemon candy and sorbet with a classical zesty bitterness stopping short of pine. A tealeaf dryness (flowery Orange Pekoe, Lady Grey) and delicate carbonation crown this beer’s straightforward appeal for me. Simple layer of toasted malt biscuit with a caramel edge does the job. Lingering orange rind and pith bitterness, quenching and drying. - In league with Fuller’s ESB in terms of classic Anglo-American ales. Is it the whole cone hops that make this beer feel so natural? Can easily cut through a 6 pack of this classic when nearer to the source.

PotjeBier (2651) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2016
12 oz bottle @ a friend’s. Clear golden to orange color. Rocky off white head. Aroma’s: fruit, ale-yeast. Fruit, some herbal hops and light malt retronasal. Flavor is moderate bitter with light sweetness. Medium bodied. Long, moderate bitter finish. I’d like to retry this fresh from draft, if I ever make it back San Fran.
