2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is dark transparent copper with a yellowish white fluffy head. Nose is very soft and sugary, caramel and brown sugar, light toasted grain and some syrupy resinous citrus. Taste is very sweet, lost of caramel, very sugary, lightly toasted grain mid palate moving to a syrupy citrus hop in the finish. Heavy body, low carb, not on point with pale ale.

330ml bottle. Looks very inviting when poured with a deep golden honey amber colour and a crisp tan head, followed by lots of floral hop aromas. Very smooth in the mouth and on the paste, almost creamy.

On tap at local taphouse. Pours an orange copper with a fluffy white head. Aromas of apricot, peach and citrus. Malt driven with fruity notes at the back end. Different to any other APA that I’ve had. I like this a lot.

Pours an orange copper with white froth. Flavour is sweet but mellow on bittering hops. The aroma is damp and hoppy

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl Bottle at La Dolce Vita, Dublin. Pours copper colour with fairly thick white head - plenty of lacing. Aroma is pine resin, wood, earthiness, spice, slight citrus, grapefruit. Taste is big on the pine resin and earthy notes, grapefruit bitterness is there too, fairly robust caramel malt profile is prominent too. Mouthfeel is a bit rough, as is the bitter bite (sticks around long into the aftertaste). A good, hoppy, USA-inspired ale; plenty of positives here but Christ almighty it's expensive for what it is. A good couple of quid more expensive than other (better) beers in a similar style, so would certainly drink again as long as it's not my round!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber, copper pour with a frothy off white head and lace. Flecks of yeast floating around the glass. Aroma: Citrus, grapefruit and brown sugar are the dominant aromas. Hops, malt and a woody aroma is present but subdued.
Smooth with medium carbonation leaving a tingle on your tongue. AFO is a lot more prevelant on the nose than palate. Initially slightly bitter, turns to sweet. Gets more hoppy as it warms.
AFO is a great session beer.

color arancio/ambra con abbondante schiuma di buona persistenza.aroma intenso, amaro ,agrumato e tropicale.si sente un eccessivo uso di malto caramellato e cerali.anche in bocca divido tra il piacevole carattere tropicale/resinoso e leggermente speziato, e il meno piacevole caramello e malto tostato usato in maniera troppo esagerata.carbonazione medio alta.un po pesante per una APA.mi trovo in difficolta a recensire da riprovare!

Molto equilibrata. Aroma luppolato. Al palato si presenta agrumata ( pompelmo sopratutto) e luppolata (ma nella giusta misura). Le note fruttate del finale equilibrano tutto. Ottima.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Really delicious hoppy brew. Pours out a light amber with golden hues and a finger of foamy off white head. Sweet and fruity hop forward nose. Light grainy malt notes and citrus zest. Sweet flavor with a hint of grapefruit and lemon rind. Great hop character and flavor with medium bitterness. Overall, a well balanced beer.
