COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pale Hops unite the best from the American and British traditions in ale brewing. With a complex malt profile and a solid foundation of floor malted Maris Otter barley malt, this beer is intensely spiced with some of the most expressive American hops.

Light amber in color with a pungent aroma of grape fruit, hay and oranges leading to a smooth palate with light breadiness and slight sweetness balancing the hops bitterness, which lingers in the back of the mouth.

Ingredients: Maris Otter Pale malt, Wheat malt, German and British caramel malt, Belgian Special B dark caramel malt, Amarillo, Centennial, Simcoe and Chinook hops. American yeast. 40 IBU.

Habanero (2173) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2013
Bottled. Pours hazy and pale amber with a large off-white head. Aroma of citrus, peach and caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and solid bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft to average carb. An excellent pale ale.

RexTalionis (2133) - FINLAND - JUL 8, 2013
Draught. Pours hazy amber with a small off-white head. Light fruityness in aroma, feels almost tropical at some times. Also a bit of hay and grapefruit is present. Fresh grassy notes appears later on. Subtle grassy bitterness in taste, bit of mild soap and floral notes too. Refreshing and has a nice bitter afterpunch to offer. Soft and no sign of harshness, nice one.

Holmen1 (2003) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2013
Fra fat på Mikkeler & Friends mai-13: fin ravfarge med litt skum, deilig og frisk humlearoma med citrus og andre sydfrukter. God smak med balanse, middels munnfylde og tørr ettersmak. Et 0,25 glass varer bare så alt for kort.

NosirIwont (1894) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - APR 21, 2013
Bottle. 5.5%. Best before 28.02.15. Pours a hazy deep amber with a big, fluffy off-white/yellowish head. Good lacing. Sweet citrus aroma, almost candy-like, with a twist of malt. Resin and a faint note of chamomile. Very nice. Tart, bitter hop flavour. Feels a bit watery. Light resin, malt and fruity notes as it warms. Further warming brings out a light anise-like note. Finish is a bit dry, tart and rather bitter. Lingering light notes of grass and apple. Overall pretty good, especially the aroma. Flavour could be a bit more powerful though, and the watery feel is a drawback. 21.04.13.

brnandersen (1668) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 9, 2013
Sample from 33 cl. bottle. Hazy, amber-golden colour with a small, white head. Fruity aroma with citrus, grapefruit and orange zest. Pale and bready malts. Taste is light sweet. Medium body, average carbonation. Finishes bitter with citrus, pines and grapefruits. Very refreshing.

Ktwse (1481) - SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2013
Pours hazy amber with low white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, light tropical fruit, grass. Taste is fruit rather than malt sweet with a light but present hoppy bitterness. Body is light and slick with soft carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tide (1469) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle at bar. Deep amber color, white head. Bitter taste with grapefruit, floral hops, pine, tropical fruits and resin. Bitter finish with grapefruit and mango. Excellent APA, and really close to IPA.
