3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Mikkeller Bar, july 19th 2012. Hazy orange body with a creamy offwhite head. Hoppy aroma of several exotic fruits and a matching malt presence. Taste follows, with peach, pineapple, grapefruit and a light pine note, combined with caramel. Good bitter and fruity aftertaste. One of the most refreshing apa’s I’ve had in a long time.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33 l bottle from Bierkompass. Amber color. Floral and citrusy aroma with dark caramel, some nuts and hint of menthol. Bitter, nutty, caramelly, floral and citrusy flavor with somewhat rough and mentholy bitterness in finish. Rounded palate. Fairly good and fresh APA, although a bit rough and too caramelly.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Hazy amber colour, small off-white foamy head, which is quite long lasting and leaves some lace. ARoma is sweet zestyness, some fruityness as well as some sweet malts and mild toffeeish notes. Flavour is fruity and floral with a quite big zestyness. Mild maltyness as well. Pleasantly balanced APA!

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l, at Kahdet Kasvot, 20120811) The beer poured amber and cloudy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had mango, peach and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were peach, fruitiness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter. A very good fruity aroma but the taste was too musty.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rather thick, yellowish to cream head over foxy orange beer; some lace. Fruity C-hops, grapes, passion fruit, lytchee, citrus... Bit of ureum/hessian sacks aromas. Bitter, fruity with pure citrus/-marmalade retronasal. Fruity hops utterly dominating the flavour. Very lively carbonation, quite (hopoily) slick, medium bodied; Maybe a tad too slick. It gets a kind of alcoholic fruitdrink character, this way, if on the bitter side; Refreshing, no doubt.

Bottle @ home. Aroma is lovely orange and citrussy hops, touch of grapefruit and lychee. Flavour is a big bold hop bitterness, sharp and fresh, again with loads of citrussy and orange notes. Subtle malt note. Great pale ale.
