Aroma is a little light but otherwise this is a solid APA. Good orange color with lots of bubbles and a solid head. Aroma is bread with some spicey citrus notes. Taste is mild toffee with some citrus. Nice bittering effect at the end.

12 oz. bottle..Poured hazy amber color with small white head. Sweet malty aroma. Tasted more like an amber ale rather than pale ale, had a sweet malty grain taste with a bitter dry aftertaste. Overall a good beer and would purchase again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber with a slight haze and a medium sized, foamy head. Aroma is kind of a musty, floral scent. Flavor is earthy perfume and a bitter backbone with a smooth finish. A little different from most APA’s but not bad.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light orange color, HUGE stationary head (I think this one got a double shot of the CO2) that remained for the entire brew, some lacing. Aroma is apples, pears, and a cheerio like aroma. Sweet malt and citrus are the dominating flavors although a little spice is also present. Decent carbonation, thin bodied. A solid APA.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
I found this APA to be a bit thin in mouthfeel for my tastes, but it had a rather pleasant floral quality that I enjoyed and found to be somewhat unique among APAs.
The appearance of this beer was ugly. Head was nice, white, fluffy, and plentiful. However, the body of this beer was an inconsistent color from top to bottom (sort of gold on bottom, sort of rust on top). Aroma was hoppy, but rather rosey floral more than it was piney, citrus, or grassy. Flavor was pretty decent...a perfume-y floral taste with a mild amount of bitterness. Mouthfeel was a bit thin I thought.
It seems like everyone in the world makes an IPA/APA/DIPA, and as a result, there are many bad ones. This beer is not one of those, and offers a somewhat unique floral character that makes it worth recommending.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy orange-amber color. Strange aroma; it’s not strong, with grass, manure, ripe apples. Smooth mouthfeel, good and strong toffee flavor, and strong hopping too. Good, but something’s odd.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of Skyview. Hazy, amber golden with an off-white head. Malty nose with a light whiff of aroma hops. Fairly light-bodied with a subdued malt base - slightly biscuity. Very dry with some peachy notes, The finish is quite hoppy. 171107

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. A hazy orange-amber beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet with a weird fruit note and a light touch of yeast. The flavor is sweet with light notes of alcohol, and spices - especially coriander, and some notes of peaches. The body is watery. I guessed this as a Belgian style - though a boring one - not hoppy enough to be an APA.
