felixll (31) - Rosemère, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2016
Blonde très légèrement trouble, col blanc ephémère. Nez de houblons américains, mais plutôt ténu pour le style. En bouche c’est très bien balancé: une douceur maltée estompée par une belle amertume. Texture gouleyante et carbonation moyenne. Très bonne bière, aussi rafraichissante qu’agréable.

Alengrin (4262) - BELGIUM - MAY 20, 2016
Swedish APA, with blue label (other than shown here) but it must be the same beer. Light gusher, usually not a good sign in general, but particularly not for an APA. Thick, frothy, beaten egg-like, dense and fluffy head on top of a hazy pale orange blonde beer with a good deal of ’fine’ fizz piercing through; turns a cloudy ochre with deposit. Aroma of delicate American hoppiness mingled with some yeastiness; I get hoppy blood orange, yellow grapefruit, pine resin, marihuana, some sweet tropical flowers and some toasted onion on the one hand, but all in a soft, somewhat restrained, delicate kind of way, and yeasty and malty notes of bread dough, gooseberry, apricot, biscuit and even faint banana on the other hand. Spritzy, crisp, refreshing onset, fruity with both sweetish and sourish impressions tightly connected to each other (ripe peach, yellow raspberry, granadilla, apple peel), lively carbonation but not in a coarse way, extending far back over a background of supple, bready, biscuity malts providing a slick, lightly oily mouthfeel and into the finish, where hoppiness builds to spicy, leafy and aromatic (retronasal citrus and pine), drying and softly bittering and only laying on top of the juicy maltiness rather than deeply penetrating it as would be the case in a (modern) IPA - so in that sense a succesful APA. The lingering spicy, even peppery and grapefruity hop bitterness does however stay for quite a while, but so does a very pleasant yeast breadiness deep down. I was a bit worried about the yeastiness of this beer and the gushing, but it turns out alright; this is an accomplished APA, notably less clean and a lot yeastier than your average ’actual’ American example of the style, but a very pleasant and aromatic thirst quencher nonetheless, the yeasty character of which works better with the delicate New World hop character than I expected. Enjoyed this quite a lot.

IlGagario (109) - Modena, ITALY - MAR 16, 2016
In bottiglia, a casa. Colore oro scarico/ocra scuro. Testa cremosa, di bassa persistenza. Olfatto citrico di limone, arancia, resina e luppolo floreale. Carbonazione media, frizzante. Aroma un po’ scarico di luppolo, resina, alcool e più distanti gli agrumi. Gusto amaro, corto, leggermente piccante, etilico e poco incisivo, secco ed asciutto. Corpo medio, trama da watery a oleosa. Finale crespo, leggermente saponato. Alcool presente, scorrevolezza discreta. Sensazione generale non molto gratificante e povera di emozioni, seppure la birra sia di buona fattura, denoti una buona amarezza e una discreta solidità. Il “tropical feel”, promesso in etichetta, è annacquato. Non credo la riproverò.

Vili (245) - FINLAND - FEB 11, 2016
33cl bottle. Clear, golde npour with thin white head, little to no lacing. Aromas of fresh citrus, pine and leather. Taste is sharply bitter, almost dry, and sour. Fresh palate, little carbonation. Aftertaste is short but kick-in-the face bitter, with nice lemony finish. Good stuff.
