hens (736) - Tallinn, Estonia, ESTONIA - SEP 9, 2014
0.33L bottle. Hazy amber, medium fluffy hat, stays. Compost heap, silo, barn smell. Gentle mouth...impressive. Flavours are mixed very pleasantly. Rotten egg taste is lightly, rotten veggies, light lemon peel, some herbs and mouldy bread, garlic, soy and strong grass in finish. Enjoyable bitter end. Damn good beer. Taste, flavours and aroma, aftertaste and feelings are very right place.

Bottle from Deliciously Different. Thanks Bob! Hazy amber colour, creamy white foam. Very fruity hoppy character with bitter hoppy finish. Aroma of pineapple and grapefruit. Very complex. Very good APA!

robinvboyer (4170) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2014
Hazy orange pour, with a huge white head. Intoxicating aroma of ripe oranges, lemons, and grapefruit. Loads of citrus zest and apricots, and other stone fruit. Wow! Mouth feel is soft but pleasant, and the finish is low to medium on the bitterness, with a just juicy citrus closing. Excellent beer!

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2013
Bottle. Lovely fresh and subtle peachy aroma, soft tangy bitterness, with a short dry finish, just slightly tart. Loads of gorgeous citrus on the tongue, impressive stuff

Bottle from Craven Arms, Birmingham. Tried half without sediment, then poured the rest of the bottle - sediment and all. Liked it both ways. Juicy. Fragrant.

beholder (58) - Poznań, POLAND - MAR 4, 2014
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.

imdownthepub (13370) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2014
Bottled, 330ml from The Real Ale Store, Newark, Notts. Slightly hazed gold amber with white head. Perfectly presented APA with juicy hops to the fore, the body of the beer itself just has a hint of caramellisation, giving it some depth, but remains crisp on the palate. The hops deliver juicy, tropical fruit notes, rich but refreshing. Good stuff.

jamestulloch (3486) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 16, 2013
Aroma: Lemon and biscuit with subtle mango notes. Quite floral.

Appearance: Hazy golden body with a medium white head. Light carbonation. Great lacing.

Taste: Grapefruit and lemon with a hint of kiwi fruit and mango. Sharp, bitter and very drinkable.

Palate: Medium body with an oily texture. Light carbonation.

Overall: Bright and zesty with a tropical fruit hint thanks to the addition of New Zealand hops.
