Sniff of chlorine And citrus. Cloudy golden color; lovely. Nice head, good lace. Smoky aroma. Ashy feel with an ashy finish. Not bad but with a dark unfiltered vibe. Dried leaves. Decent and very dry.

Flaske: Orangegul øl med et fint skumhoved. Duft af humle og græs. Smagen er forholdsvis mild med et fint humlebid. Meget drikbar lawn mower beer, men heller ikke mere.

Hmmm, somehow my rating got nuked. No matter. Pours a brilliant orange with a fluffy lasting and sticky head. Nose is straight up floral and citrusy cascades. A kiss of sweetness in the nose as well. on taste, very clean. Nice bitterness that fades with a bit of sweetness from the backing malts to remind you APA not IPA. Finishes dry. Nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz. Deep gold to orange, small white head. Just a little hazy. Bright citrusy nose with lemons and oranges with a little dry hop grass. Just a little malt in the nose. Taste is primarily cascade hops and maybe some caramel malt. Mouthfeel is light and carbonated buzz. finishes dry and clean cut. nice example of an APA.

12oz bottled June 10, 2010. Pours hazy gold with a one finger foamy head that quickly diminishes to a light cap, leaves a few spots of lacing. Aroma is floral and earthy hops, some citrus, yeast, mild overall strength. Flavor features a good amount of citrus bitterness, some earthy hops, a bit musty, mild malt sweetness in the middle, good bitterness toward the end and finishes dry. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a bit oily, low carbonation. Nice, hoppy, refreshing Pale Ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Papat444. Pours a elegant copper with a finger of snow white head. Aroma is floral hops, something earthy, something sweet all at once that I can’t quite put my finger on, pretty subtle even for the style. Taste is deliciously refreshing, a bit of that earthiness, lemony hop bite and caramel sweetness. A higly refreshing and enjoyable APA.
