4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: hazy light amber with a medium sized white head. OK lacing.
Aroma: fresh american hops, citrus, pineapple, hints of pine and grass. Aroma isn’t very intense, but is very refreshing and pleasant.
Taste: typical american pale ale, but just a bit more maltier I guess. Decent bitterness, mildly fruity, some resin notes, slightly earthy finish. Dry.
Mouthfeel: medium to low carbonation, medium bodied.
Overall: an everyday pale ale. Very tasty and refreshing but doesn’t knock your socks off.

Fra keg på Brewdog Nottingham 26 Jan 14. Mørk aprikosfarget. Uklar. Lavt skum som etterlater en ok lacing. God ferskenaroma. Smaken er aprikos & svisker med innslag av sitron. Litt tørr ettersmak. Bra men litt ensformig.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draught at Man in the Moon, Stockholm, 20 Feb 2014) Pale amber colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of citrus, crystal malt, apricots and floral hops. Malty, hoppy taste with citrus, apricots, toast, a touch of rye bread and a fresh floral bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Slightly sharp malt profile, balanced by a fresh and tasty hop character. Nice one.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Excellent pale ale. Strong pineapple aroma, pours a hazy copper with a thin off white head. Soft carbonation with an oily mouth feel. Taste is bang on, heavy on the citrus and pine, with some firm bitterness to finish it off. Had this been labelled and IPA I would still have been happy!
