beerbrat99 (132) - Shanghai, - JAN 30, 2008
Can poured into pint glass. Copper color with white head. Low foam and lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, bubblegum, orange and slight juniper. The taste is full of citrus, candied barley and some woodiness. The finish is perhaps a bit sweet and cloying. A nice IPA and can’t wait to take some camping this summer.

aleigator (496) - GERMANY - AUG 31, 2015
Pours a clean orange color, with a big, bubbly head, which stays around for minutes. Smells of a leafy dankness, amped up by juicy orange and biscuity malts. Develops a pleasant lemon note, which sets itself on top of the flavor foundation of the beer. Exhibits a medium carbonation with a very creamy mouthfeel, leading to a distinct bitterness, wrapped up by cakey malts, still resulting in a very refreshing, easy drinking beer. Tastes of dough bread with a whiff of earth, completed by zappy lemon peel. The flavors develop a nice sweetness right before the swallow, resulting in a luscious grapefruit and orange savor, balanced by now pungent lemons. Reveals a short period of an aqueous quality during the finish, soon joined by lemon infused grass, which creates a very long lasting bitterness on the tongue. While its beginning is almost similar to the Caldera Pale Ale, this beer creates a more distinct hop bite towards its finish, which evokes a nice depth of flavors, as the malts now have found a worthy antagonist. It reverses basically the roles, now the malts accentuate the hops, while it was the other way round in the APA version. Nontheless, malts put up a good fight, lending a lot of character to the beer, creating a challenging, hop defined beer, which is composed in a very intriguing and clean way.

Llauna a La Cervecita del Poblenou (BCN). Bona aparença, color caramel i una bona escuma, aroma un pèl massa maltós per l’estil. En paladar al principi predomina en excés la dolçor dels malts, però mica en mica s’obre cami el llúpol fins a aconseguir un bon resultat final

tomekk1978 (933) - Ząbki, POLAND - AUG 20, 2015
Aromat: dominują cytrusy , owoce tropikalne i żywica. Do tego tradycyjny amerykański słód herbatnikowy, może nieco opiekany i alkohol. Były także lekkie oznaki utlenienia.

Wygląd: barwa głęboko złota, zmętniona. Piana w kolorze ecru, drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, obfita i trwała. Ładnie oblepia szkło. Wzorowo.

Smak: lekka słodycz, złamana kwaskowością i duża doza owoców - ananas, mango, cytrusy. Do tego nieco słodowych ciastek. Goryczka w okolicach średniej, lekko drażniąca i dość długa, ale dobrze zbalansowana. Średnia do krągłej pełnia, umiarkowane do wysokiego wysycenie i słodowo- kwaskowa końcówka. Alkohol dobrze ukryty.

Acid303 (495) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - AUG 7, 2015
35.5cl can, served in tulip. Dark orange colour with medium white head. Very earthy on the nose with a slight touch of caramel. Taste is similar with pine and tropical fruits added, actually quite balanced and better tasting than expected. Moderately dry on the palate, some toasty notes. Medium mouthfeel, good carbonation. Nice beer.
