Keg& bottles, regular.Dry hopped for extra aroma, this pale ale has a light malt base with just the right mouthfeel to allow the hop character to predominate. Grapefruit like bitterness is full and lasting and is balanced by a zesty citrus burst of aroma from two late additions of cascade hops.

fall_ep78 (44) - DENMARK - JUL 4, 2014
En let jævnt kedelig oplevelse, der på trods af den lovende aroma skuffer smags og synsmæssigt, da den på disse fronter minder aller mest om en pilsner - øv!

trotwood (51) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle. Blurred lemon aroma. Later on, apparent sweet apple. Sweet and watery (only 10.5°P - too little for AIPA). Decent but rather unpleasant bitterness. Unpleasant aftertaste. Overall, weak and not balanced.

Bottle-500ml. Nice, hoppy beer. Drinkable, but not so eager to repeat. Has a little metal taste in it, hardly noticable.From the hops maybe?

clear golden colour, moderate sized creamy off-white head;aroma of grape, citruses, slight earthy notes, caramel and tropical fruits; taste is dominated by citrusy-grassy hops with some maltyness in the background; really good pale ale

DanK720 (4) - IRELAND - MAY 30, 2014 does not count
Quite a bitter beer which, in my opinion, is too fizzy. It has a weakish flavour and doesn’t compare to other pale ales. Have had much better, rather unimpressed.

Kauge (1451) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 28, 2014
Bottle from Tallinna Kaubamaja food department (€ 2,15). Pours gold (not exactly pale), near clear with some tiny bits floating. Head is off-white and short lasting, though doesn’t disappear completely. Aroma is malty, bitter of citrusy hops, floral, resinous and rather sweet, as in honey-like. Taste is more straightforward than aroma, less sweet with notes of pine and ripe lemon bitterness. A bit watery. Medium body and carbonation; dry and a bit sticky mouthfeel; finish is faintly bitter. Overall a slightly lagerish APA - would have expected a more light-bodied and less full beverage. Good for warm autumn evenings if nothing better at sight.
