4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2014 Hazy in appearance with an excellent, juicy hop aroma. The flavor is very much what a great APA is supposed to be, great hoppiness mixed with a good maltiness and a juiciness that balances the dryness. Overall this was slightly more bitter than other APAs, giving this a bit of uniqueness to complement the rest, making this among the best APAs.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. My first Kissmeyer Beer, so expectations are pretty high! :-) Pours a deep bronze body with a coppery hue, crowned by a big bubbly white head. Aroma is fresh strawberries, overripe melon and hints of peaches, syrup and nuts. Very original and nice; like a combination of a brown and pale ale. Taste is earthy nougat-like tones, red berries and wet leaves. Hints of sweet biscuits. Hard to discern and rate really, as the flavors are blended very well. Smooth in mouthfeel, but somehow not very refreshing. This doesn’t strike me at all as an archetypical west coast APA. All in all a nice beer, but it lacks the winning edge and vanishes a bit in its own subtility. Still solid craftsmanship on display here.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Nettbutikk. Cloudy amber colored. Low greyish-blond head. Nutty, marzipan-like aroma. A distant whiff of fruity hops. Medium body strength. Strange sweet flavor, like artificial sweetener. Malt-accented, with peppery caramel and nuts. Restrained fruity bitterness. Malty finish with a vague fruity bitterness. A decent beverage, but not a (West Coast) Pale Ale in my book.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Large bubbly beige like head that mostly lasted. Fair display of lacework. Cloudy golden/amber color. Aroma of preach, passion fruit, pineapple, light toffee. Quite hoppy fruity aroma and mouthful. The aroma is right up there with Sierra Nevada in my opinion, but the body is a bit too thin. Light to medium bodied with an average carbonation and light oily dry texture. Light to moderated bitter and sweet flavor. Gets a little bit of that liquorish like finis from the hops.
