3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2014 0.33l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a blurry golden one with a small slowly fading and light islandy bubbly off-white top. It has quite a fruity aroma this, lot’s of american hops, green sticky pine cones, peaches and apricots. Not bad at all. Quite full-bodied with a average carbonation level. Light sweet and woody in the flavor. Actually a bit drymouthing. I get a grassy bitterness with barch and old dry pine cones. Long bitter taste and a dry mouthfeel in the finish and aftertaste - almost like chewing on green not right red currents. 18.10.2012 6-4-6-3-13 (3.2)
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. Crystal clear lovely golden I the glass with a small all sidesticking just off-white top. Light hoppy on the nose, some fruits. Nice and inviting. Really hoppy fresh on the flavor. It’s almost lively on the carbonation and the mouthfeel is light oily. Near stingy on the tongue due to the carbonation I’m pair with all the fresh bitter hops. Really good and easy to like. 03.05.2013 6-4-7-4-14

Bottle pour. Part of a Pick 6 Pack for $1.50 / bottle. This pale ale is getting pretty close to an india version on the hop continuum scale - a big plus in my mind.

awesome citrus aroma, lighter color and good amount of carbonation. taste is pretty light to start, mostly citrus. Finish is long and pleasantly bitter. Extremely refreshing beer. Not overpowering, not piney like a lot of IPA are, this APA is awesome.

Bottle from ck1 - thanks bro! Pours a pale orange with a bit of a foamy white head. Nice lacing. Aroma has pine and grapefruit, more sweet than citrusy. Taste is of pine, citrus and some sweet maltiness. Somewhat light but with a lot of nice flavors and quite dry. Finishes citrusy. Anecdotally reminds me of their Daytime IPA, or my memory of it. Very nice and well balanced between sweet and hoppy. Easy drinker.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Poured a clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy spruce hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

12 oz bottle pours a clear golden color with decent white head and some lacing. Aroma is full of citrus and piney hops with some caramel malts present as well. Taste is bitter with a long finish. Body is medium with average carbonation. More aggressive than most pale ales, but I like ’em this way. This made me think of my favorite in this style: Alpha King.

Pours white with a big white head. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, pine. Taste is similar; citrus, pine, some bready maltiness. There’s a nice bitterness here as well. This is more aggressive than most other Pale Ales I’ve had, in a good sort fo way. Smooth and drinkable, but bigger than other pales.
