Rated 5.4.2013. Slightly hazy amber color, good off-white head. Fresh piney, pine needles aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Piney, pine needles hoppyness, pale malty. Quite good bitterness for pale ale, could call it even a session IPA.

Bottle from supermarket. Dark amber color, white head. Bitter taste with grapefruit, hops, fruits, a bit of pine and metallic aroma. Bitter finish with grapefruit and hops. Very nice APA, although the bitterness is a bit overwhelming compared to the light body.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Golden, hazy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and some tropical fruitiness, light grapefruit - piney hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty and dryish flavor, light caramel and light tropical fruitiness, some piney - light grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty and dryish, light fruitiness, piney - some grapefruit hoppyness. OK dry and well hopped APA - considering the bitterness the body is way too thin.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep dark orange copperish hazy beer with almsot no head at all. Aroma is sweet sugary caramel and sweet tropical fruits - mango and orange. A really nice aroma. Taste is mostly bitter, little fruity and it comes out a bit watery in the end. Mouthfeel is thin and kind of stinging, and the finish is pretty long, dry and bitter. The aroma was promising but the balance is off with the watery body and heavy bitterness. Not bad though.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Yellow to orange looks with minimal head but leaves some lacing on the sides. Sweet scent has tropical fruits and some sweet berries, maybe some strawberry? Light mouth feel, main taste is sweeter with malts and at the end the hops kick in with some tropical fruits and citrus. Maybe needs some balancing out but overall pretty decent APA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Body has a hazy dark orange color. The head disappears almost immediately and laces heavily on the glass. Nose is pretty earthy and herbal, with hints of pine needles, herbs, earth and some floral notes. Taste is fairly bitter with some malty sweetness rolling around. The finish is dry and bitter. Carbonation is pretty lively.
