The Owl Farm, Brooklyn tap: Pours opaque orange-red with a creamy thick head. Aroma is mango, passionfruit, of course, and some nice grapefruity hops. Taste is a little sweet. It is not all that bitter. Kind of mellow beer, but in a way that the complexity is preserved. Very pleasant.

3oz sample at Expo Cerveza Mexico 2014. Clear amber orange. Earthy, floral aroma of caramel, pine resin, citrus zest and grapefruit. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Sweet and moderately bitter with a light sourness. Palate gets less complex towards the finish and a touch too sweet and too sour.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 BOTTLE 33CL from ivodoni1. Some fruity hops, tropical fruit, but also a heavy meaty feel to it. The flavour is dry, with little fruit and lots of bitterness, accompanied by light acidity. Seems like it had some yeast problems to it.

Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl.
Appearance - bright amber with a nice lacy head.
Nose - earthy toffee with eventually some strawberry syrup.
Taste - malty and fruity. Wholemeal bread and strawberry jam.
Palate - medium bodied with a crunchy texture and a long dry finish.
Overall - quite conflicting. Easy drinking yet challenging in parts. Tasty but sometimes hard going. Interesting.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Fermentoren. Pours hazy amber with an off white head. Aroma is quite fruity and has a nice hoppy bitterness as well. I sense the tropical mango/passion thing, also some pine, weak resin and some sweeter malts in the background, taste is fresh hop forward with lots of fruity notes as well. You get the tropical stuff along with the pine/resin here as well. Very bitter and fresh - almost minty. Nice and very drinkable apa!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at fermentoren Aarhus. Pours a nice orange amber wwith a white head. Aroma has hay, grainy malts, and of course lots of fruits like citrus, unripe mango and ripe pineapple.
Taste has the usual funky fruitcharacter that these fruit pale ales tend to have. Unripe mango and orange, bitter orange peel, and a pretty prominent, and slightly watery malt character. A summer treat for sure.
