COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Tap. Pours cloudy amber with creamy, white head. Aroma is cereal and bread malts, light fruit, floral notes, and light grassy. Flavor is sweet malts forward with the same supporting notes found in the aroma; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

northropfrye (1944) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 17, 2013
A bit under-rated I think. Amber body, with off white head, nice lacing. Vibrant hoppy aroma. Bitter taste, lots of flavour. A really solid APA in my books.

pivnizub (8574) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 11, 2013
Bottle: A bit unclear, golden to deep golden, medium-sized loose and stable off-white head, moderate fruity nose with distinctive herbal-lemony hops, some barley detectable; moderate to solid dry bitter flavour, still presenting a shy, subdued sweetness, light to medium bodied; dry fruity-hoppy finish, dominated by flavours of oranges and grapefruits.Guinness? Who needs Guinness…

harrisoni (12648) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2013
500ml bottle from Terre de Boissons. Clear gold thick white head. Sherberty hop aroma. Tasty slightly soapy hoppy beer. It’s fine, just a bit soapy is all. Hops are fine and sherberty if not exactly flavourful. Fine.

mzaar (1365) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2013
På fat. Detta är en välhumlad, men från sötma väl balanserad APA. Något tunn kropp för ett högre smakbetyg. I doften inslag av citron, gröna äpplen, fläder och persika. Grape, lime, persika och karamell i smaken. Något kolsyrig munkänsla.

McTapps (2965) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2013
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.

MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUN 30, 2013
(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
