12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a golden copper color. The head is a two finger white shade, with a foamy texture and decent retention. Nice lacing is left behind on the glass. S: Actually, Iím mildly impressed here. Thereís a decent (if not explosive) hit of mango and melon on the nose, with some of the crackery malts coming through after it sits in the glass slightly. This is actually a lot better than I remembered. T: Hops hit the palate first, but without any bitterness - just some nice tropical flavors. Toffee-esque malts come through on the finish, maybe slightly too assertively. Slight piny hints right after the swallow, too. Itís exactly what a good pale ale should be: balanced, easy to drink, satisfying, and refreshing. M: Thereís a very crisp bite which helps to mitigate some of the thick-feeling maltiness and semi-sweet finish. Itís carbonated enough to help make it drinkable. O: This must have been reformulated somewhere along the way, because I donít remember this being so good. It wonít blow the mind, but it will make a great everyday go-to beer.

Rofi (95) - POLAND - JUL 22, 2015
W aromacie průżno szukać amerykańskich chmieli. Jest słodko - kwiaty, żůłte owoce i biszkopt. Piana słaba, lejsing nie występuje. Barwa jasno pomarańczowa. W smaku jakiś dramat się odbywa - biszkopt ze stęchlizną. After taste nieszlachetna goryczka, taka po mocnej herbacie, ktůra trochę odstała.

janubio (528) - SPAIN - JUL 14, 2015
Clear amber colour, qietha small head that does not hold for too long, minimal head. Smell of hops, reminds me of the Burton-Upon-Trent sulfate water beers. Some caramel, and tropical fruits. Medium to full body, sticky and creamy. Taste of hops, caramel, it keeps reminding me of the Burton beers.

bartholos (100) - GERMANY - JUL 8, 2015
Bottle. Amber colored with a white frothy head. The aroma in the nose is abundant of hoppy notes of grapefruit and passion fruit as well as somewhat grassy and roasty. The strongly hop dominated aroma and flavor is very well balanced by a malty sweetness, not to sweet, just right. Form the middle till the finish, however, it gets a nice medium bitterness. Flavor is also strong of citrus and passion fruit. The mouthfeel is very smooth with medium carbonation while the body is medium as well. Great beer, well balanced and full of aroma.

typickylev (10) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 7, 2015
Bottle. Clear amber colour with a nice white head. Aroma is malty, citrus, grass. Taste is malt, very easy on hops, citrus, even some hint of grapes., though Iím not sure whether itís an off-flavour or not. Drinkable refreshing beer.
