3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent, not great like I’ve come to expect from this company. Grapefruit/pine nose, hazy dark gold pour. Palate is a bit low on the maltiness, but not quite enough hoppiness either, it is dry, it is drinkable.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
OK for a pale ale. The finish is a bit too dry and not hoppy enough for my liking. Very, very dry finish. Aroma is bland.

The dry hopping provides a nice aroma....citrus and earth. Pours cloudy with quite a bit of lacing. It isn’t refreshing enough for me to think of it as a good pale, but it isn’t bold enough for me to think IPA. It is somewhere in between the two....

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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

nice pale ale. pours golden with a half inch head or so. light aroma, sweet light citrus and apple with grassy hops. carbonated and refreshing, pretty clean but still nicely hopped. Roasted malt and apple flavors with citrus hints and a bitter hop finish.

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.
