3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle from Bellwoods, kept in fridge. Light gold coat with dense small bubble head and fine carb. Open and lightly grassy aroma plays into sweet-bitter grassy taste and lemon, manages to stay a little creamy and drinkable in spite of the definite herbal leafy dryness. Nice mineral on the finish, a bit of tea. It is what it says.

On draught at Bar Hop. Hazy gold, average white head. Lovely citrus and light pine aroma, a little sweet, but juicy and appealing. Taste follows, only light bitterness, very crisp, mild alcohol, light fresh grain. Average body, solid carbonation, quickish finish. Solid drinking APA.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours orange, clear with a frothy white head that sticks around and lots of lacing. Nose is onion, maybe garlic and some grapefruit. Aromas are grapefruit, onion, with a spicy finish. No malt sweetness. Taste is pretty heavy on the bitterness. Body is medium, with some silky quality to it. Lively carbonation with an acidic bite. Great way to get the summit profile.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(650mL bomber from the brewery, bottled Feb 12 2013, consumed 11 days later) Poured a slightly hazy light yellow gold with a huge persistent head of white foam, no lace. Aroma dank, grassy, citrus and tropical fruit, great hoppy nose. Flavour hop-forward as well, tropical fruit, grassy, juicy citrus over very light crackery malt, almost no sweetness. Fades into a dry, moderately bitter grapefruit pith finish from the hops. Body is fairly light, carb was soft after that massive head, very dry overall. Hop-forward and quenching with little malt character, I think this is exactly what an APA should be. Needs more summer weather!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Citrus, white grape, tropical aromas. Cloudy light yellow with a pretty long lasting white head. Mildly bitter upfront, tropical fruits/grape and a piney/earthy bitter finish. More of the catty or oniony aromas/tastes as it warms. The hop is front and center here, a bit of light sweetness from the malt. A tad watery body, quite light. Great APA.
