Dark yellow coloured beer. A good sized head. Very grassy, citrus hopped beer. The bitterness holds a long time.

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 (13502) - 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.

rosenbergh (9999) - Tampere, 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.

ej (1225) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - MAR 31, 2013
Golden and hazy, little to no head but a small film of foam forms when giving it a swirl. Mellow aroma of citrus, bread and corn. Taste is also pretty mellow, some melons, mild citrus and subdued maltiness.

Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew. Pours a clear deep orange body with a small white head. Nose is mild malty peach tones with hints of watery apricot and straw. Taste is sweet malts, peaches, hints of grass and red berries. Medium carbonation and body. A bit boring, but OK.
