22 ounce bottle purchased at the Davis Food Co-Op. Aroma is very malt-forward with lots of chewiness and some caramel hints. Some Honey Nut Cheerios are also in there. Where are the hops? Transparent dark golden body with a creamy off-yellow head present. Starts with grassy hoppiness and some more chewy toastiness and some more cereal notes. Herbal, lightly spicy hop bitterness to finish. This is decent for the style, but nothing to write home about.

355ml bottle at home. Pours a hazy orange colour with a big foamy white head which leaves lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, hops, citrus and slight malty. Taste is sweet with a very hoppy bitter ending with notes of grapefruit, hops an citrus. Texture is watery with low carbonation.

355 ml fles. @home (Erm). Smaakt bijna als een IPA. Doch een IPA is nog bitterder enheeft meer alcohol.

355ml bottle as a gift: Underwhelming really, if it didnít look so good when I poured it then it would probably have been the worst beer of the four Iíve tried from the brewery. There was nice biscuit malts with a sweet backing & a few earthy flavours beside all the bitterness that helped the beer down. On its own this would have been a nice enough offering but I was expecting a little more from the brewery based on a couple of others Iíve had from them in the past; enjoyable but not great.

12 FL OZ Bottle. Beautifully designed a cartoon style beer label. Immediately got my attention. Poured in a glass presents pretty orange and hazy color. Medium carbonation produced a nicely formed frotty head with a good lacing. Head is diminishing but leaves a small crown until a last sip. First aroma that appears is a hoppy, citrus smell. Light malt, seems like honey to me. Grapefruit aroma, on the beginning mixed with a pine, stays most of the time. Unfortunately at the end came nasty sweet corn aroma that ruined my all impresion about this beer, that is why I decreased a score for an aroma. Quite thin in a mouthfeel. Medium body. Soft. Goes through a palate very fast. Bit spicy. Very pleasant, bitter finish. Moderate bitter flavor, light sweet.

Bottled. Almost clear orange golden, small lacy white head. Aroma is sweet malts, some citrus, grassy hops. Taste also starts sweet with some honey before a very good hoppy bitterness, nice and balanced. Medium body, watery texture, medium carbonation.

Hamirubi (369) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - OCT 15, 2015
35.5cl bottle at home (15 X 2015). Amber to orange coloured pale ale, a bit cloudy but vivid, and a most beautiful, tick and creamy white collar. Grassy and malt flavours with some dust welcome the taste. The mouthfeel is quite round and medium bodied. This lovely hopped Anderson Valley Poleeko Pale Ale has keen features of pinewood, herbs and mango. There is some malty dust in the taste too. The ending has that lovely American bitterness, not too long and not that sharp. A great drinker, a genuine American pale ale (APA), and far more fuller bodied than expected.

Pours a golden colour. Aromas of bubblegum and sweet malts. A bit of hop presence but this is mostly about the grains and the malts. Nice. But not overly exciting

Een mooi, troebel oranje gekleurd bier met een stevige kraag. De geuren van vruchten zoals citroen, mango en zure appelen komen al vrij bij het openmaken van de fles. Een subtiele bitterheid zit in de smaak, tezamen met het fruitige, zoals grapefruit. Lekkere, rustige bittere nasmaak. A nice, cloudy, orange beer with a firm layer of foam. The aromaís from lemon, mango and sour apples are picked up by the nose, as soon as the bottle has been opened. It has a subtile bitter taste, together the fruity bit. Like a grapefruit. A calm, nice bitter aftertaste.
