3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home, bought at De Bierkoning, shared with Dutchdrebus. Hazy almost pale orange color, medium sized white head that disappears fully within a couple of seconds. Aroma of malts, some hops, a bit oxidised so I guess itís a bit old. Taste malts, lightly hops, lightly bitter. Nothing fruity really, and again a bit old. Or maybe it has been in the store in the light for too long. So all things considered: I think itís a decent APA when itís fresh, but now itís not that good. Too bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg at White Horse. It pours orange=amber, with a thin white head. The nose is sweet malt, orange, boiled sweets and maybe a touch of sweaty sock. The taste is very light, hay, orange, citrus pith, lemony soap, spice, straw and faint tropical fruit. Light body and moderate carbonation. Easy drinking, but relatively unexciting.
