This apa by berlin craft beer pioneer "heidenpeter's" has become my benchmark for american pale ales. It's just perfect in every way and i'll never get tired of it. A true masterpiece.

Pours a bright orange color, with a beautiful, giant head. Features an intriguing nose of juicy lemon, together with ripe orange, balanced by a rich, grassy dankness and subtle, bready malts. The aromas exhibit a pleasant, utmost fruity sweetness, coated up by lemon zest and resin. Reminding me of Alpine Brewings Pure Hoppiness, with a herbal, short peak to it. Has an almost smooth mouthfeel to it, while the beer remains easy drinkable. Tastes extremely fruity, unbelievable full in taste for its lower abv. Integrates beautifully a bitter, fresh pressed fruit juice beginning, immediately joined by ripe orange. Beer turns quite sweet then, without revealing any flaws, supported by a slighty metallic carbonation, adding to the biscuity malts. Prickly, tongue tingling, sour lime, with a convincing load of grass, embeded by glazed malts, marks the finish of the beer. Incredibly well composed pale ale, featuring american hops in its best way possible. Unleashes a fantastic, versatile range of flavors: ripe orange with a biscuity malt support, and a convincing dankness among lime, as its counterpart.

GlasgowTAD (376) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - FEB 19, 2015
Bottle from Beerhunter111 via Euroswap - cheers! Pours a dark golden with a foamy, large white head which recedes rapidly. Aroma is oranges, slight piney hops and some freshly cut grass. Taste is citrus fruit, followed by some herbs and piney flavours. Medium bodied. Good body for a pale but would consider it thin if it were to be an IPA.

MichaelAwesome (5287) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 10, 2015
Gut, sehr gut, aber nicht außerordentlich. Sehr süffig, fein zu trinken, wundervoll eingehopft in leichten Zitrusfrüchten und angenehmen Hopfen, dazu knackig im Abschluss und feine Perlung. Keine Raketenwissenschaft, aber eine runde, hervorragende Sachen.

McTapps (5319) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - FEB 10, 2015
Bottle from Culchiem - many thanks! The beer has got a hazy golden-orange colour with a steady head and medium body. Wonderful aroma of hops, mandarinas and pine. Taste of intense hops, ripe mild citrus fruits, mandarinas, pine, spruce, mild herbs, light barley, peaches and light spices. Very well-balanced beer, enjoyed it a lot. Like the other beers from Heidenpeters (which I tried) this one is just delicious and superb.

DrDrood (37) - GERMANY - JAN 18, 2015
Bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit reichlich Schaumbildung beim Einschenken. Ein ordentlicher Duft von Honig, Aprikosen, Malz und etwas Hefe, strömt einem aus dem Glas entgegen. Im Antrunk dann weniger honiglastig, dafür neben den Aprikosen leichte Zitrusnoten. Vom Körper und den Bittereinheiten sehr ausgewogen und süffig. Sehr schönes Bier!

Ungstrup (29992) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2014
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of straw, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, straw, and caramel, leading to a bitter finish.
