Pretty pale yellow, small layer of white bubbles. Rustic dried grapefruit aroma, pleasant woody nose like Pride of Ringwood. Very clean lemony malt, melon and pollen hops, brisk and nicely balanced.

Bottled at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Clear deep golden, rich firm head. Peachy hoppy nose. Sweet with some butter, plenty of paper, mango and peach. Very fruity with sweet crystallic malt an marked late bitterness. Too sweet, fruity and clean to be great.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle . A clear pale golden color pour with a small white head that quickly fades, medium carbonation . Aroma is light floral hops and a hint of citrus . Flavor is much the same as the aroma , a little malt up front with a citrusy hop profile, lightly yeasty , well balanced for a APA but lite on the bittreness . Light body with a clean , but slightly oily mouthfeel . A slightly hoppy peppery finish . Quite sessionable and a pretty good try .

Pours nice golden/bronze. Aroma not overly hoppy, but above average. For my taste, not as bitter as I like in an APA, but again, decent. Like previous rater noted, background hint of toasted malt.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewpub. Golden orange color, minimal head. Earthy, soapy hop aroma. Mild soapy bitterness with a smooth malt backbone. Fresh and enjoyable. Medium bodied. Light fruitiness and toasty malt nuances. Pretty good, but hardly world class stuff.

Bottle. Pours a pale clear amber with a lace of off-white head that accumulates at the edge of the glass. Very little lacing. Floral hops aroma with a rich malty, spicy body. Light bodied, very mild, some spiciness in the finish. A bit soapy, hint of toast. Thin.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle. Rather clear, light gold pour, slight head. Smell has a bit of hoppiness, not much. Makes me wary that this is going for the megabrew market. However, the taste does redeem it. Peppery hop up front, almost German in character, with some citrus to the back. Goes down nice and fizzy, like a bar keg draft. Actually tastes nice cold, too. Sharper hops in the finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden pour with some head. Aroma has a slight impression of hops and some sweet malt. Flavor is light citrus, a bit of poop, and some maltiness. It’s ok.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours to a golden lager-type color with thin skim of a white head that lingered shortly and left little lacing. Aroma was faint lemony citrus with just a hint of hops. Mouthfeel was a slight tingle-slight skunk mix, and the taste was a continuation of the citrus fruit found in the nose. Rounded off to a finish that was dry, a shade bitter and a little skunky.
Not much to this one.
