4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle purchase in Cedar Rapids. Pours a golden orange. Cloudy with a soft effervescence. Massive white foamy head that open up slowly. Excellent aroma. Citrusy hops. The mango and passionfruit come through a little although the hops are features. The fruit gives the aroma a clean dimension. Love it. The taste is mild by American Pale Ale standards. Somewhat like a hoppy session saison. Passionfruit mutes the malt. Finish is somewhat dry. Soft almost watery mouthfeel. This is not a problem unless you really want to bracket this beer with the pale ales. It seems to me more like a hybrid, and so I tend to be more forgiving. No hint of alcohol in taste or aroma although we are getting into higher values. So what’s not to like about this beer? Not much, unless you were expecting something else.

On tap at The :Local Beer Bar in Eureka, CA. Came in the glass orange with a big while head and excellent lacing. Nose is a huge blast of mango. Tropical fruit seems to abound. Medium plus body and a smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is very much tropical fruit and there is a light bitterness in the mango finish. Superb. Loved this one.

Aroma: mango, passion fruit, lime, herbs; Appearance: pale golden, minimal head; Taste: intense sourness, medium bitterness, slight sweetness; Palate: soft carbonation, bitter finish, light body, slick texture
Very clear and sour for a pale ale. Fruits and hops do great job here. Ultra refreshing. My first beer with a full 28min soundtrack (free streaming of the Alone EP on Soundcloud).

750 ml bottle from backlog notes. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have quite a bit of fruit, tropical, citrus, pale and toasted malt, some mild to moderate bitterness, decent beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
"A nice, fairly unique fruity hoppy offering from Mikkeller. Somewhere between a pale and an ipa, with a sturdy malt background and enough passionfruit and mango in both the nose and flavor to take notice. Both of those fruits play quite nicely with the fairly aggressive hops, and the finished product is very good for an apa."

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.
