Pale golden, just slightly hazy. Aroma of pine and grapefruit. Some sweeet malt in the flavor to balance the fruity hops.

Kauge (252) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 26, 2014
Bottle from a local shop (€ 1.96 - damn overpriced). BB June 2015. Slightly hazy amber colour; head white and brief. Nose caramelly and herbal (Amarillo and Cascade, really?!?), kind of like rhubarb custard (kissell). Taste caramel and pale malts with autumn fruit sweetness and some dank pilsnery biterness to follow. Body light to medium, palate near watery, carbonation quite lively, finish malty and herbal with faint bitterness. The caramelly sweetness does not make it an easy drinker in my opinion - there’s a certain heaviness to it despite the watery palate and light body. Among the weaker APA-s I’ve had.

A very light head, clear amber colour. Has a somewhat watery taste of hops, with a hint of caramel after the initial taste. Ok beer, but nothing too special.

dseiko (13) - ESTONIA - SEP 7, 2014
Really nice hoppy smell. The bad grade is based on mediocre foam and too light taste. After the smell I was going for more

Quite nice, golden and great color, nice foamy head. Aroma of pilsner and light fruitiness, with some lack of bitterness in the taste and aftertaste.

belgis (159) - LATVIA - JAN 18, 2014
It’s winter at the moment but drinking American ale in winter is not good idea it seems very plae almost tasteless. If I would try it in summer to refresh myself or after sauna would be my favorite. Not this time. Long lasting foam was great, but thats it. Was hoping to feel some of thos citra and amarillo, but very far far away.
