Zymurgeist2 (1271) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Bottle to pint glass. Overt tropical fruit - starfruit and passion fruit. Clear orange with off-white head that looks a little soapy. Taste is overt dank and pine, with restrained fruits in support. A moderate malt backing with the moderate bitterness makes this a thoroughly enjoyable pale ale.

mathieuc (2086) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2015
Thanks to Tommy for that bottle! Pours a clear golden with a small white head that disappears ub an instant and leave spotty lacing. Nose is of slight onion but primarily orange juice. Taste is moderately bitter and lightly sweet, offers oranges again with some light garlic/onion. Juicy hop juice, really. Body is medium, carbonation moderately high and mouthfeel a little sticky. Overall a fine pale ale, I’d drink that again!

The pour is a copper gold with a medium white head. Notes of topical fruit, citrus, tangerine, peach on the nose. Taste is sweet tropical fruit, citrus, yeast and malt fill the mouth as well. A medium bodied brew, good crisp mouth feel and carbonation. Finish is sweet tropical fruit, citrus, with some yeast notes and a bit of very ripe peach on the end as it warms up, mild bitterness for balance and light dry finish. Overall a very well made and tasty brew. good stuff

Draught at Antenna America. Lovely hop profile with plenty of tropical flavors, honey, pine, lemon, sharp bitter finish. Great stuff, these guys once again nailed an outstanding hoppy brew.

malrubius (2071) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JUL 1, 2015
Bottle from Meditrina. Bright golden/copper with lasting head and some lace. Citrus pine and spice aroma with toasted grainy honey. Medium peach sweetness with lots of grainy biscuity malts and assertive resin pine and citrus bitterness that lingers. Medium body. Well made.

chinchill (2913) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 1, 2015
Undated 12 oz bottle. Pours clear golden with ample visible carbonation. It is topped by a tall, thick, semi-durable white head that leaves plenty of sticky lacing on the gless. . The flavor is a bit better than the aroma, with typical hop strength for style. Excellent lively but smooth feel with a near medium body and medium-high carbonation.

Terminus (3342) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUN 30, 2015
bottle-bottled in early June Pours bright orange hue with a small soapy white head around the rim of the snifter. Nose is lots of fresh modern hops-some green onion, cheese, slightly catty, and some juniper-ish notes as well. Flavors exhibit very nice floral hops- very little in terms of bitterness lots of very dry flowery notes with a touch of pale lite crackery malt. The more this warms the more I like it. I drank the first bottle in 15 minutes! I never drink beer that fast, but his is very easy to just slam. A very solid contender in the APA market.

tillmac62 (404) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - JUN 30, 2015
Pours a clear amber with a touch of garnet. Outstanding head volume and retention, world class lacing. Outstanding nose of citrus, onion and dank hops over a mild biscuit. Heavy light body with a smooth texture and a fair amount of oily slickness. Superbly carbonated with a nice effervescent middle and a prickly finish. Outstanding flavor profile that is reasonably intense, slightly complex and well balanced. It begins with a blend of hop flavor that is tropical (mango) that flows into a general citrus flavor. As these subside, a dank and onion flavor arrive. The middle is slightly bitter with a subdued rind like character. Underneath the bitterness is a balancing mild biscuit sweetness. The finish is a slow fade of the previous flavors.

robertjm (792) - Albany, California, USA - JUN 30, 2015
Strong aroma of apricot and peach. Small white head. Bright golden body. Thin mouthfeel. Flavors of grass and hay. Hop character not the typical pine/resin/grapefruit we’re usually experiencing from a Pacific Coast brew, yet not like a British beer either. Reminds me of lithia water, which has a high concentration of lithium salts. (If you’ve ever been to Ashland, OR you know what I’m talking about!!)

gyllenbock (5728) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2015
On tap at Taproom Malmö. A bit hazy amber with a white head. Aroma of grapefruit, malt and fruit. More fruit and grapefruit in the taste. On the sweet side and with a medium bitterness. Fresh and easy to enjoy.
