berlinoise2go (586) - NORWAY - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle from Vinmonopolet (Storo), Oslo. Slightly hazy reddish amber colour. Half-inch offwhite head, reduces quite quickly, but leaves a steady ring with some lacing. Aroma of citrussy hops, grapefruit, sweat, pine, almonds, hint of caramel. Medium body, fizzy-soft carbonation. Dry, fruity-bitter taste with a mild acidity and a ’background’ sweetness. Lasting, pleasantly bitter aftertaste.

Abrakarl (249) - SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2013
Nice apa smell but not totally fresh smell. Nice and Well made but nothing spectacular for a hoppy beer.

Abio (1519) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2013
Dark yellow coloured beer. A good sized head. Very grassy, citrus hopped beer. The bitterness holds a long time.

bigaddie (74) - - MAY 22, 2013
Complex odor of sweet and citrusy. Lots happening in the aroma yet revealing a papaya and tropical fruit dominance. While it pours a good head, it has quite a cloudy look. Very good all round flavor to this palate of the beer makes this a very drinkable, flavorful and complete, in a sense, beer. Could have been bolder on the hops but it excellently fits the bill of a pale ale. While I would certainly have this beer again, it feels a little missing in complexity. Yet, with a full palate it does a respectful job. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mcberko (5357) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2013
On tap at Brewdog Birmingham, pours a cloudy faded orange with an off-white head. Aroma of citrusy tropical fruits (mangos, grapefruits, etc.) and citrus hops. Flavour is quite bizarre for a pale ale – extremely fruity, full of stone fruits, especially peaches, citrus hops and pale biscuity malts. Quite a fuzzy, zesty note at the end, kind of like kiwi. Medium-bodied, more towards the hops. Decent, unorthodox beer.

AndySnow (2469) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 22, 2013
Bottle. Hazy golden colour with a white head. Sweet aroma of hops and fruit. Flavour is fruits, flowery, hops.

rosenbergh (6084) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 7, 2013
330 ml bottle. (Forår/Sommer 2012). BB 13/03/14. From bierkompass.de.
Cloudy (w/o yeast) ambery golden colour with a small to average sized white head. Fruit, fruit tea, sugary sweetness, caramel malt and hops in the aroma. The flavour is pleasantly hoppy with mild bitterness and lots of fruitiness. Balancing maltiness. Not as sweet as the aroma suggested. Very drinkable.
