gunnar (6128) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 23, 2015
On tap at Hlemmur Square, pours pale straw colored with a small creamy white head. Aroma is weak dry citrus. Taste is light dry, oranges and with a sharp edge at the finish, spritzy fresh mouthfeel.

mcberko (8520) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
On tap at Hlemmur Square, pours a clear blonde with a small white head. Nose brings out lots of biscuity malt upfront, with very slight dry hop accents. Flavour reveals a nice balance of floral hops and dry biscuity malt. Hoppy and dry, with a nice biscuity finish. Nothing special but well-made.

larsga (6525) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 14, 2015
Medium white head. Clear yellow body with little particles. Resiny gooseberry and flowers aroma with wooden pea notes. Dry-sweet resiny spicy taste with nothing much else. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dry salty mineraly peas aftertaste with wooden rubbery notes. Nice, drinkable. A letdown after the aroma, but still not bad. (0.33l bottle, from Vinbudin Kringlan, Reykjavik.)

BeerandBlues2 (10541) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Can at Micro Bar. Pours lightly hazy orange with a large, creamy white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is citrus, pine and earthy hops, pear esters, and light biscuit malt. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, fruity esters, light malt and a dry finish, somewhat soapy. Medium body and carbonation, and peppery palate.

Travlr (14773) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Can at Micro Bar. Hazy yellow, thick fluffy white head. Nice floral perfume aroma. Taste is bitter fresh hay. Nice.

Rammer (324) - Moscow, RUSSIA - DEC 28, 2014
Good APA. A little watery. Pleasant citrus flavor and light bitterness on the finish

lbianchi66 (61) - FRANCE - NOV 9, 2014
Belle robe orangée, avec une mousse épaisse et solide. Saveurs herbales, d’agrumes (surtout pamplemousse). Léger goût de levure. Arrière-goût mentholé. Convient très biens aux amateurs de bières bien houblonnées.

Reimer96 (1451) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 15, 2014
Pours a lightly hazy golden orange with a frothy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, nettles and light pale malts. Taste is caramel, pale malts, grapefruit, pine, resin and for the most part a nice smooth bitterness that gets a bit astringent in the finish... Otherwise a great American pale. Nice dry finish too.

visionthing (3315) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2014
50cl on tap at Micro bar, Reykjavik. Clear golden with a white head. Fruity and slightly yeasty aroma with hints of pine, citrus and herbal notes. Moderate sweet with nice fruity flavours and a decent bitterness. Nice APA!

I actually think this is a great pale ale with loads of flavour. IPA fans wouldn’t like this more refreshing beer.
