Bottle. Pours a cloudy bronze, light carbonation and lingering head. Nose is fruity, pine, lemon, lime, and something tropical, passion fruit maybe. Taste is lemon, peach, pineapple, with a buzzy carbonation, and slight biscuity malt and bitter finish. Absolutely delicious.

jamestulloch (1328) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 8, 2013
Aroma: Sweet caramel and freshly cut lime.

Appearance: Hazy amber body with a medium white head that holds well. Light carbonation. Great lacing.

Taste: Very sharp and bitter. Taste is of leafy hops, lime and pine.

Palate: Medium body with a foamy mouthfeel. Average carbonation fizz.

Overall: Definitely on for the hop heads - very bitter and aggressive. Easily the bitterest APA I’ve tried to date.

Copper color, gloriously creamy looking white head. Really excellent appearance. The nose is mostly juicy hops, grapefruit etc. The taste light sweet. Pleasant bready malts present. The mouthfeel’s light-medium. Overall nice work.

olio (6139) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 1, 2013
50 cl bottle.
Pours hazy copper color with a medium sized head. Aroma of mandarin, some tangy citrus fruits, pine needles, hops and caramel notes. Flavor of resiny hops, caramel malts, citrus fruits and mild goose berries on the finish. Mild bitter palate. Decent but a bit boring.
