brewskis (123) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - FEB 17, 2013
UPDATED: APR 11, 2014 Pours a cloudy bright orange color with a finger and a half of a white head that dissipates to a nice thick lacing. Nice carbonation coming off the glass. How a pale ale should look. Smells of tons of floral notes, some resinous, dank qualities, grapefruit, a soapy quality to it, some juicy fruits like pineapple. Do get some bread and grain as well from the malt. Taste starts with some resinous, yet juicy qualities from the hops such as grapefruit, just tons of floral, almost a perfume-like flavor. Then the middle brings some balance with wheat notes, grain, and carmel. Get some qualities here that may suggest some to say it is "watered down," but I disagree. The finish is more of the prominent floral qualities of the hops, as well as some pine, grass, pineapple, grapefruit, carmel. Crisp, light body with a creamy and thin mouthfeel. This is not on the Alpha King or Zombiedust level for apa’s, but it is definitely a quality, hoppy pale ale that I would gladly have anytime I can get my hands on some.

Pours a cloudy golden orange with thick eggshell color head. Light lacing left throughout. There’s a tropical fruit, pine, and floral aroma. Sweet and tart that finished mildly bitter. Has a citrus, tea, earthy, pine, and tropical fruit flavor. Medium body that was dry and bitter on the palate.

Mainuh_man (243) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2014
16oz can. Pours clear pale with a frothy white head. Aroma is dominated by floral and resiny hops. Flavor has only a bit of a, and is again dominated by hops, resiny, piney and herbal. F labor falls off towards the end, leaving a relatively mild, dry hop bitterness. Light body with a thin mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, some nice hop aromas, but otherwise, nothing noteworthy. Not enough malt character to balance things out.

skortila (4622) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2014
Canned. 10cl sample. Thanks Menno. The aroma has citrus, some grass and is somewhat herbal. Clear, golden coloured beer with a medium, white head. The taste is light-moderate bitter, has grass, citrus, unions. Refreshing, nice, but a bit too herbal/veggie for me,

An excellent any time beverage. Pairs well with all meals. Sufficiently complex taste.
