Can. Light golden color. Not the juicy type of pale ale I normally like, more of a spicy, bitter aroma and body, yet I still quite enjoyed this one. Itís too sticky (and sweet) to say itís refreshing, but itís flavorful without being hard to drink. And thereís something unique in there I liked.

Yields an amber-copper color, with a froth, stable, white head. Smells of very distinct, cakey malts, mingled up with ripe oranges and a note of white lime zest. Unusual sweet on the nose, with almost more malts than hops, topped of by a whiff of melted caramel. Has a higher, lively carbonation, which adds a refreshing metallic note during the ending, enhancing the beers refreshing appearance. Despite that, the beer drinks still very smooth and pleasant. Tastes of freshed squeezed lime, blending into dough bread and sweet, ripe orange. Orange turns more prominent during drinking, enhanced by toffee and more bready malts, tied together by honey, until a hoppy bitterness kicks in, adding a lime defined dryness to the palate. This dry aspect grows stronger during the finish, replacing a good part of the bitterness, while bready malts remain visible on the palate. Nice and refreshing, while a tad too malty to let the hops stand out from the overall taste.

12 oz. can, pours a clear golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out perfumey floral notes and wheaty notes. Flavour is fresh, with wheaty notes, floral hops, and light citrus. Nothing special, but clean and refreshing. Solid stuff.

35.5cl can, served in Shaker glass. Hazy golden/orange colour with medium white frothy head. Earthy hops along with caramel and fruity notes on the nose. The flavour is very herbal and piney to a lesser extent, quite surprising. The caramel and the fruits almost vanish, even though it is obvious that the malts play an important roll to achieve this effect. Nice dry finish. Medium body, good carbonation. A good atypical APA overall.

Canned. Pours hazy deep golden with an average off-white head. Aroma of citrus, flovery notes, a little pine and breaddy notes. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and decent bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A nice APA. 🌟🌟🌟

6-pack in cans. This is a wonderful APA, with a nice malt backbone (a touch of Munich) and flavorful hops. Cascades arenít the only hop - thereís a bit of pine and a slightly bitter ending. All told, quite good.

BeErikS (33) - TAIWAN - JUL 25, 2015
Pours deep gold to light Amber with a large, creamy, off white head with good retention. Slightly opaque. Sweet, toasty, caramel malt notes up front give way to slight spicy herbal esters and fruity (orange and pear?) and herbal notes. Malt dominates the initial swig but crisp, herbal hops balance out with a pleasantly dry, slightly astringent aftertaste. Fruity hops linger. Moderate carbonation and a moderate to light mouthfeel with an almost watery finish, which is my sole and mild criticism: mouthfeel is a bit lacking. This is a classic example of a great APA, highly recommend.

Can from Ezo Beer served in a shaker pint. It pours a light copper with a dense head of foam. The nose is herbal hobs, parsley, dank, resinous and a bit of sweet caramel malts. The taste is lightly bitter piney/herbal hops with enough malt sweetness to deliver a well balanced pale ale. Satisfying.

lusikka (7492) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2015
355 ml can. Pours a copper amber colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of sweet toffee, bread and citrus. Flavour is rather sweet with toffee, herbal bitterness, citrus and mango jam. Medium bodied and quite soft carbonation. Probably not as fresh as it should be.
