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.

justsayswell (172) - Mission, Kansas, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Bought this over Christmas in Wichita KS. Brother in law said that this brewery wasn’t that great so I picked up their APA, because if they can’t get that right then there’s no point in continuing. Can to glass. Pours copper with a quickly receding off-white head. Lots of lacing. Nose is different. Caramel, pine, peach pits. Taste is caramel malt, piney hops, peach skin, faint orange. Palate is medium. Finish is slightly sweet with a touch of stone fruit and citrus. Not bad.

Saeglopur (1053) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JAN 4, 2015
355 ml bottle from Systembolaget Passagen, Stockholm.
Clear, amber body, with a medium, creamy, white head.
Light aroma of citrus, flowers, orange, some strange medicine notes.
Light taste of citrus, orange, pine, some sweet malts.
Light mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes light, quite bitter, a bit dry, citric.

Pretty bland. Light, characterless and with some unpleasant notes in the nose. One of the most boring APAs from a craft brewery I’ve had so far.

Aroma of lemon and grapefruit. The flavour however is weak and fine. Some flavours of citrus but that is it. A little low carbonation too.

HIGHB4LL (835) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 5, 2014
12 oz. can from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: finger slightly off-white head, golden color, clear, ok lacing. Aroma: caramel, grass and hay, floral. Palate: medium-light body, average-soft carbonation, bitter finish, sticky texture. Taste: slight sweet caramel into bitter hay taste that lingers and is pretty strong. Overall, not very drinkable, unique, but nothing great.

Jyrsa (235) - - DEC 4, 2014
Pours cloudy and golden with a frothy head. Nose has mandarin and barnyard. Mouth has a strange mandarin-like taste that I’d categorize as an error. Salty and slightly bitter taste. Medium fizzy body with a bitter finish. Someone might understand this beer but I don’t.

Vighals (1983) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - NOV 27, 2014
Noe tåkete lys brun med høyt kremete hvitt skum som ligger helt ut. Sydhavsfrukter, fersken og et snev av røde bær. Bittersøt smak av humle og frukter. Bitterheten er lang og kraftig

AirForceHops (4530) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 26, 2014
12 oz. can purchased from the Beer Store, Nashua. Wanted a simple after dinner brew, whoa, underwhelming. Hazy gold with almost no aroma, when warm a trace of citrus.

No can date yet even fresh I bet this is a garbage. The flavor is weak biscuit malt, spent grain and dead citrus. Hop flavor doesn’t really show. This is hop forward?? Extremely thin watery body, the thinnest brew I’ve sampled in a while. I was looking for something light but with some flavor. This is just a failure on multiple levels.
