3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (11/12) courtesy of Papsoe (thanks!), shared with ozujsko.
My first APA. And I recognized it as such before I knew it was set as one here. Hmm... Poured a nice orange colour, with a medium-big fluffy white head and lively carbonation. The nose is malt, green apples, lime, and some yeast. Nice. A pleasant, if maybe too subdued and one dimenstional taste. Lime, herbal hops, yes, somewhat "piney", with a bitter hoppy aftertaste, a touch of caramel. Amarillo dominates, obviously, but is never even close to being harsh or aggresive. The beer could’ve, however, used a better malty backbone. A lack of one can really be felt, and the beer got boring soon enough.

A powerful goden ale. Full of taste, a fruitiness coupled with the pine aroma of the hops. Well worth trying!

Orange øl med klar bitterhed.
Minder om den engelske Bitter.
Svær at huske, da jeg fik 15 forskellige den aften.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2006 Bottle. Mikkeller has not lived in vain, for they have made the amarillo hop famous, GB is trying to replicate and it is good but get a life.
