A nicely hopped pale ale brewed with 4 American hops, dry hopped with Cascade and Willamette.
Ale in American Pale Ale style. Orange-coppery in colour. On the nose, it features a delicate note of chestnut honey surmounted by the citrus taste of mandarin and bitter orange deriving from the American hoppers used in this beer. Just a slight herb note in the end. In the mouth, clear citrus notes accompany the moderate body and the final dryness tempts another sip. 12.5°

Bottle from De Bierkoning. Hazy amber with a creamy head. Potent hoppy nose, promising plenty of citrus. Quite bitter in the mouth as well with more of the same. Good for a low strength beer.

AshtonMcCobb (5381) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2012
75cl bottle. Pours cloudy amber with a lovely creamy head. The nose has grapefruit and pine. The taste has more grapefruit with a touch of malt on the end. The palate is medium bodied with a creamy texture and a bitter finish. Overall, it seems a bit too bitter at first but you get used to it.

dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle @ zzt. Aroma is fruity and flowery hops, slight bready malt note. Flavour is mild bitterness, a bit sweaty with long lingering malt and hop bitterness. Okay, but nothing special.

Clear gold/amber color with nice white head,lacing glass. Smooth aroma: hops, tropical fruits, caramel and malts. Semi dry, bitter, herbal and hoppy taste, with a bit malty sweetness in the background. Notes of tropical fruits, herbs, grass, grapefruits, oranges and tangerines. Medium body with medium carbonation. Good APA. Flavor could be more intense.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2008
My Bottom Line:
Earthy hop resins surround the mild malt sweetness in this smooth and moderately bitter American-style Pale Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A pillowy head of foam slowly sinks into the hazy blond orange.
-Some caramel undertones are felt.
-The handpump serving imparts a very smooth mouthfeel.
-I am used to enjoying more hop aromatics from the style, so the politely citrusy nose was a little too subdued for my tastes.
-The resinous hop bitterness is lengthy but never overbearing.

On cask at the brewpub.

Draught Small head, very fast gone over (cold) hazy pale-orange beer. Nutty nose, slighly oxydized malts, followed after some time by UK-like hops; further caramel. Very nice lightly bitter in the British way, but with a strange retronasal flavour, very outspokenly reminiscent of peanut butter. Not really light body; good carbonation. Strange, but certainly not bad - makes a good ’quaffing’ ale.
