3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, dated 30 Sept 05. Interesting pour: a somewhat cloudy, burnished brass body, with a thin but creamy head. Smell upon opening is a bit of skunk, but that clears away quickly. Taste is definitely on the hoppy side, with graprefruit and pine from those Northwest lupulins. The malts don’t seem to be able to stand up to this, and the fact that this is lighter in color that other APA’s I’ve known would confirm this. However, if this is the same recipe they used back in 1975, it would have indeed been a beer ahead of its time. Some say it’s overcarbonated, but I find this to my taste.

Bottiglia da 355 ml. Color dorato con riflessi arancioni, schiuma bianca fine di scarsa persistenza. Al naso un agrumato fresco che sfuma su un leggero caramello. Al palato un inizio morbido che lascia spazio ad un intenso caramello, finale abbastanza secco e duraturo.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very hazy orangey-golden color, topped with a nice and generous white foamy head.
The pleasant aroma of citrusy hops is easily picked up.
The taste is bittery, not too much, and finishes with a slight fruity feel. The aftertaste is lasting with slight and immediate metalic feel.
Very nice ale, drinkable and tasty.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden amber pour. Very carbonated. Aroma of hops and apple juice with some grass. Very bitter taste - more bitter somehow with the carbonation, followed by watery grassy taste. Not as good as I remember - lots of hoppy bitterness but not much else.
