Jacamus (11) - Beverley, East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2014
Seriously solids APA. Aroma is lush tropical fruits, hint of pine and fresh grassy hop. Aroma is a hazy orange. In the mouth it zings, sweet caramel gets crushed by hop power. That tropical mango washes the palate like a smoothie and then a nice rounded bitterness finishes it off. Yummy.

beerfest5 (1141) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 22, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours a bright yellow gold, medium white head, no lacing. Big citrus and grapefruit aroma, some biscuit malt too. Taste is hoppier than most pale ales, long bitter finish. A very good example of the style.

visionthing (2617) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2014
33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet Storo. Pours slightly hazy amber with an off-white head. Hoppy aroma with pine, citrus, notes of tropical fruits and hints of malt and caramel. Moderate sweet with lovely hoppy flavours and a fairly strong, but pleasant bitterness. Medium +body and fairly average carbonation. Quite delicious!

MayumiH (58) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle at home with some roasted pistachio nuts, repeatedly listening to "Don’t you find" by Jamie T. Okay..I love this beer. I really like how Beavertown brew beer. Dry, hoppy, malty, fruity, sweet-ish. Perfectly carbonated. Love it :P

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
2014-07-04. Hazy dark orange body small white head. 3+ Aroma of pithy orange citrus, light yeast. 7+ Flavour is fairly bitter up front, good amount of orange and citrus from the hops. Lingering bitterness and citrus oils in the finish and aftertaste. Average plus bodied palate, modest carbonation. Quite tasty. Bottle from Alesela, Glasgow.

ciaranc (800) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 19, 2014
330ml can from Drinkstore. Cloudy orange-amber, enormous rocky white head, not sure whats going on with the pour. Resiny pine nose, spruce, lots of pith, orange zest, quite full-on aroma. Smells a bit like hot-break material. Flavour is a biscuity caramel, together with some fruity, zesty hops. Very nice. Light enough with a smooth mouthfeel, carbonation is nice and mellow. Finish is quite sweet. Pleasant, except for that strange note in the aroma, which doesnt appear in the taste. Wonder if the batch has an issue, must re-rate.
