3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. A color of reddish copper, little white head. The aroma contains citrus fruitiness, some floral elements and exotic notes and a fairly noticeable malt background. Taste is initially very light sweet, later bitter and drier. Aromatic, citrus and grapefruit-flavoured hoppiness is prominent but also malts feature with a hint of caramel. The palate is delightfully smooth, medium bodied and perfectly balanced. Very rich, balanced and drinkable APA from Beer Hunter’s.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle, many thanks to Finn for this beer gift. A rocky off-white head that receded steadily over an unclear orange coloured body. Good lacework to the glassware. Fruity nose, mandarin and pale malts. Flavour of tropical fruits leading to a dry bitter ending with citrus peels. Natural soft carbonated. Smooth in the mouth. Pleasant to drink (Tromsø 02.08.2014).

Hazy brown body with a small white head. Faint aroma with hops, grass and some floral notes. Quite bitter but rounded taste. Slick and tingly mouthfeel, mild carbonation. Pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, thanks oh6gdx! Cloudy amber, rich firm head. Pleasant aroma of tangerines and mango. Sweet with medium body and soft mouthfeel. Sugar and doughy malt, plenty of tropical fruits. Long bitter finish. A beer with many things done right, yet the immense sweetness gets in the way.

330 ml bottle. Hazy amber colour, thin off-white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, pine and citrus. The flavour is malty, with sweet exotic fruits and a dryish, piney-hoppy finish. Very nice.

Im a hop lover but this beer was somewhat too sharply bitter and therefore not very enjoyable.
