3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ampolla 65cl. APA molt ben feta i molt ben equilibrada. No es excessivament amarga sense perdre la personalitat d’ American Pale Ale.

Light brown. Clear. Super fluffy complex sticky white head. Smooth body but the end edge could be more pleasant.

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
