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.

jmgreenuk (4771) - 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!

mjs (4696) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 25, 2013
(Cask at Gallows Bird Real Ale Festival ’13) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head small and white. Aroma had fruitiness, sweetness and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A good but a bit unbalanced beer.

wimpyjoe (4334) - 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.

allmyvinyl (3951) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 6, 2013
500ml bottle at home. Hazy orange yellow pour. Massive white head, high carbonation. Tropical fruit and grapefruit aromas. Taste has a decent bitterness, but the palate is a tad thin. Good though.

Pours clear dark orange with a bubbly head. Aroma of grassy hops, hints of malts and fruits. Taste is smooth with hints of grassy hops, grapefruit, lemon and fruity notes. Finish is slightly hoppy with hints of lemon, sweetness and fruits. Okay, quite balanced and hoppy APA.
