American Pale Ale; Big juicy American hops, plenty of malt character, sneaky bit of NZ in there too.

Keg @ CBC Covent Garden - pours a nice, mostly opaque orange body. Fruity orange-y aroma, quite lively. Taste is dry, hoppy and fruity. Orange peels, some citrus. Solid bitterness, though not too flowery. The "sneaky bit of NZ" is easily noticeable and much appreciated: good tropical fruit hints. Somewhat malty and refreshing aftertaste. Quite full-bodied too.

0,33 ml bottle at sauna. Nice golden and quite clear. Very refreshing aroma, dry and herbal hops. Taste is also quite light, full of light hp flavours, a bit of resins but they are also very light, almost not there. Malt base is there but you barely notice it, great beer for a hot day (or hot place). Good water. Feels lighter and with lower abv than it actually is. Well done.

(Note: I got a bit carried away and just poured it, forgetting to check the bottle which advised leaving the yeast in the bottom.) Golden-amber beer with a frothy head and a light, orange/citrus aroma. Flavour is initially sharp and bitter but it mellows out with a sweet citrus flavour to balance it out. Somewhat floral in the mouth as well. Quite tasty.

GBZ59 (1137) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - JUL 21, 2014
Grifo en L´Espumossa (Barcelona). Vaso Shaker. Color naranja profundo y apariencia nublada. Esponjosa espuma blanca y cremosa corona con bastante buena retención. Intensas notas de pino, resinas, fruta tropical –pomelo y piña- y aromas de maltas moderadamente tostadas. Sabores herbales, de granos dulces y picantes al primer sorbo que son barridos por agudos toques de piel cítrica y resinas. Cuerpo medio y carbonatación moderadamente alta. Textura densa. El amargor lo inunda todo aunque las maltas – como sutiles trazos de galleta- afloran en el intermedio para frenarlo. Final seco y sensación reseca en el retrogusto. Buena cerveza aunque peligrosamente cerca de resultar desequilibrada. On-tap @ L´Espumossa (Barcelona). Shaker glass. Dark orange color, cloudy appearance. White foam & creamy crown showing fairly good retention. Intense pine, resinous, tropical fruit –grapefruit & pineapple- notes & mild toasted malt aromas. Herbal, sweet grain & spicy flavors at first sip are blown up by sharp citric zest & resinous touches. Medium body. Moderately high carbonation. Dense texture. Bitterness flows all over but malts –as subtle biscuit hues- arise in the middle to tie it. Dry finish & dried aftertaste. Nice beer but dangerously close of being unbalanced.

Beersiveknown (3074) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle at home from Redmonds
mid hazy amber with thin white lacing. Pithy orange hops on nose, fairly prickly carbonation, big lupulin bitter hit, full bodied, slightly chalky and plenty of grapefruit pithiness. Punchy but more brash than balanced, like some of the less enjoyable kernels.

Jur (326) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2014

agent_persik (413) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 16, 2014
Hazy orange color, medium white head. Aroma of malt, tropical fruits, citrus, pine, resin, caramel and hops. Taste has similar notes - dry sweet with nice bitterness. Medium body, soft carbonation. Nice juicy APA, well balanced.
