ComradeK (978) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium gold, with a large off-white head, which lasts reasonably well, and leaves decent lacing. Pineapple, resin and grapefruit hops mix with caramel malt to create the aroma. Peppery and resin hops up front lead into smooth, slightly sweet caramel in the mid-palate. Spicy and grapefruit hops give it a nicely bitter finish. A pleasant pale ale indeed.

jmgreenuk (4016) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Poured a slightly hazy medium amber with a frothy white head and a few bubbles. The aroma is big citrus fruit hop, pine needles. The flavour is medium bitter with a light malt, hop spice bitter palate and long fruity bitter finish. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Really enjoyed this one. Very refreshing indeed and lots going on. For an APA is this is very good indeed and if Three Floyds had brewed it, people would be saying it was a whale i’m sure!

mt_hall (102) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Bottled. Copper coloured with some haze and a thick head of fine foam. Tropical fruit aromas and some pine too. Sweet tropical fruit in the mouth too, obviously hoppy, but the bitterness and dry finish aren’t overly astringent. Easy to drink and tasty, but a little simple.

Splitenz (329) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2014
A lovely drinking mans pale ale. Lovely hoppy character with citrus and pine hand in hamd, yet the nothing clashes or competes fornyour attention. A real thirst quencher this, so be careful.

wimpyjoe (3484) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2014
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Deep golden with a small creamy head. It has a fuller bodied tropical fruit aroma and taste, so much so the nose is very sugary. Slightly soured.
