UPDATED: JUL 11, 2013 Was very happy when I found this new (well, new to me) beer at my favorite bottle shop today for two reasons: "New" and an APA. I still have dozens of Belgian Ales and other Belgian beer at home, but my mouth screamed loud out for another style than this for days now. This one comes with a clear amber colour, low head and medium body. Nose of fresh hops and spices. Taste of aromatic hops, pink and white pepper, thyme, herbs, spices like coriander, grass and light honey. Quite bitter and very dry finish. After I had some other beers of this brewery earlier in the year and they all were around average and boring, this one quite surprised me. Very refreshing, easy to drink and just great.

(bottle) Slightly hazy, golden colour with a mid-sized, slightly off-white foamy head. Herbal, slightly grassy and subtle fruity hoppy aroma with a slightly buttery malty background. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a modest carbonation. Buttery and doughy malt upfront with mainly herbal and grassy hops; dry and moderately bitter finish with a lasting herbal and grassy hoppy aftertaste. Not bad but I missed the fruit character. 29.VI.13

Bortle 0.5l. Medium white head. Color orange, light amber. Aroma citrus, flowers. In flavour sweet body, grapefruit, with some spiceness, orange. Full of hops(probably cascade). This beer is almost same as sierra nevada pa, but snpa is sweeter and balanced. Overall this is very good beer, great as summer refreshment.

Aroma di luppolo evidente ma non aggressivo e non molto fruttato. Al gusto ha corpo leggero e facilmente bevibile. Predomina fortemente il luppolo che lascia sul finale una nota amara persistente e piacevole.
