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.

Smalle (157) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 19, 2014
Aroma: hoppy, citrus. The taste is very interesting, the fruit is definitely there (passion fruit & mango), but it’s not overpowering. Quite sweet on the first taste, but becomes a bit dryer in the finish. Very good

Tap at the Orsted Ølbar, Copenhagen. Poured a hazy amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is light grassy hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a big refreshing yeast citrus grass hop palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

obe83 (62) - Livorno, ITALY - NOV 30, 2014
apa stupenda brassata con mango e frutto della passione. si ritrovano questi frutti tropicali gia nella parte visiva. un bell aranciato con un dito di schiuma che si rifa per compattezza e persistenza. È però al naso che i frutti inseriti in ricetta che esplodono. tutta la dolcezza è sprigionata e riportata anche in ingresso in bocca ben bilanciato dall amaricatura dei luppoli amaricani. corpo e carbonatazione top per una beva di una facilità preoccupante (per il fegato)!

hayduke (3470) - Eureka, California, USA - OCT 25, 2014
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.

"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."
