4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of the best looking beers I’ve seen in a while, very stable head, creamy, red glowing. This translates to a great smooth body, mouth feel that is so creamy it’s almost not a pale ale any more. Certainly not pale are the used malts, rather biscuit, toasty and caramel. Very nice indeed. Hop aroma is perhaps somewhat dimmed, helped by the darker hop varieties used which are piney rather than floral, but the taste gets back with a lovely bitterness and long dry ending. Prototypical American fermentation, great and not (too) clean as it’s far from boring. I really enjoyed this beer, very well made and great recipe. Not necessarily extreme, but super smooth and tasty. Yum! (Bottle from Saveur Bière)

PL: Butelka 355ml kupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg. Przelana do kieliszka daje ładną klarowną bursztynową barwę, średnią jasną pianę i nieco lejsingu. Aromaty mocno chmielowe, świeże, cytrynowe, ziołowe. W smaku cytrusowe chmiele z miłą goryczką w posmaku. Średnie nasycenie i średnie ciało, nieco gęste - lepkie. Podsumowując bardzo fajny american pale ale.

Bottle from Bierkompass, bought in January 2015.
Clear light amber with a medium head. Light aroma and taste of malt, grapefruit, some hay and caramel. Not that hoppy and with a low bitterness. A bit tired?

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Finally getting around to rating this. Poured into a shaker, deep orange in colour with a bright head that lasts and gives good lacing. Aromas of citrus, bitter hops and a slight maltiness. Taste is bitter-sweet, leaning strongly to the bitter side. Finishes clean and crisp with just enough lingering bitterness. This is a constant in my beer fridge, I could drink this all day long. Really good, emminently sessionable beer.

Bottle. Copper amber clear. Caramels, citrus, some peachyness on nose. Med light bodied, bit light on the malts. Hoppy though, bitter with a slight piney finish. Ok drink. Feels like a honest baseline US ipa/pale ale.

Flaska. Härliga toner av fotbira o lagård. Smaken något tunn med en bra balanserad efterbeska. En hyfsad pale ale.
