COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We utilize two types of American hops in such a way that we put the flavor of these hops center stage and let their bitterness fade into the background. The hop-forward character of this Pale Ale shines through in the unique, tropical fruit flavor of two American hop varieties. Enjoy this offering with a fresh approach to how a Pale Ale expresses its inner hoppiness.

12 oz. can. Pours a medium, well retained, tiny bubbled, off white head, with extensive lacing, over a clear light amber (SRM 8) body.....nose is light toffee/caramel, cereal malts, light herbs, slight fruit notes, balance to the hops, no esters.....taste is moderately sweet to start with toffee/caramel notes, light floral tones, finishing with a moderate slightly fruity lingering bitterness, balanced, no esters....mouth feel, light body, slight astringency, carbonation makes a finishing tingle and light acid. This is a pleasant, not particularly complex, nicely balanced beer. It needs more hop complexity in both aroma and flavor, as well as a slight increase in bitterness to really be an APA. BJCP 6/3/12/4/6

Aroma is mild caramel malt, the very slightest grapefruit, and some rose petal. Taste is mostly caramel malts with some floral notes. Very unremarkable.

c0fein (193) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2014
355ml can from Systembolaget Passagen

Good looking golden colour with a white large head. Aroma of fruits and herbs and a bit pungent too. Flavour of veggies, herbs and some grapefruit. Could be more fruity and fresh, now a bit pungent and featureless.

CarlJonas (212) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUL 3, 2014
Cloudy, orange liquid. Cloying orange squash aroma. The taste is pretty bitter but the orange squash is still there. Some caramel in the finish. Medium to light body. "Get crazy" they say, well you would have to be to buy any more of this beer, especially considering the retail price here in Sweden.

mikeyo1 (182) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUL 3, 2014
Can @ home. Pours hazy light amber with a white medium sized head. Dry bready aroma with some frutiness,artificial fanta orange, grass, light funkiness and yeast (!). Taste is slighly sugar sweet with bread, tangerine, grass, orange and an unbalanced grape-like moderate bitterness. Drinkable but quite bland, with almost no malt complexity.
