Ampolla 65cl. APA molt ben feta i molt ben equilibrada. No es excessivament amarga sense perdre la personalitat d’ American Pale Ale.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Release 36, bottled on 10/31/12--Pours slightly cloudy amber with a foamy off-white head. Nose is a bit of nail polish, grassy/herbal/onion hops, and a dry, bready malt backbone. Taste starts off with the hops, herbal and grassy, then transitions into a big bready malt base. Finishes with herbal/garlic hops and big waves of breadiness. Pretty thick and creamy in the mouth. This is a fairly fresh bottle, but man I don’t get the appeal of it. Too sweet, too sharp, and too malty. Bleh.

This poured a dark amber to red color with a beige head. Aroma was of light piney hops, caramel and toasted malt. Flavor was moderately bitter, some nuttyness and caramel notes, but not much hop flavor too. Meh.
