Too sweet toffee malt swamped my palate then herbal resiny hops tried to fight their way through - reasonable bitterness at the end - not refreshing or satisfying - needs vibrancy - heavy, thick on the tongue and boring. Not hip.

Can 12 fl. oz. Pours golden-orange with medium white head and some lacing. As expected in an APA, this one features a nose of tropical fruits and pine, along with malts. Taste is way too sweet for my taste. Freshness may have been an issue here (not sure about date of caning), but anyway not as drinkable and enjoyable as I would have hope.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aromat mało intensywny, cytrusy z naciskiem na grejpfruta, może leciutkie mango, zbożowość. W smaku bardzo wytrawne, lekka słodowość, potężna goryczka o zalegającym, grejpfrutowym finiszu. Pod koniec zaczyna być bardziej przystępne. Bomba chmielowa rozwalająca kubki smakowe. Stylowo ok, ale dla mnie za ciężkie.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazy, yellow beer with a medium and white head. The nose is fresh of citrusfruits, also some tropical fruits, lemon, oranges, mangos, some pine needles. Taste has citrusfruits, grapefruits, strong bitterness, sourness of lemon, pine needles. The end is dry and piney. Medium bodied, fresh and should be. Strongly hopped, citrusfruity APA, very good.

Can from Craftissimo at home. Hazy deep golden pour thin dense head and some lacing. Aroma is a bit bready and yeasty with a slightly dank pilsner-type smell. Taste is very crisp and very dry with some floral hops. Would be great for the beach.

Pours light golden with fluffy white head. Aroma is very estery with lemon citrus notes. Flavor is very unique. It starts out sweet, gets bitter, and then finishes sweet again. The bitter hops move like one giant wave over the palate. I have never tasted a pale ale that has quite the same flavor profile.

A golden ale with a thin white head. In aroma, nice biscuit malt with smooth floral hops, balanced. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with light floral and grassy hop, ok. On tap at Empire Brewfest 2014.
