Previously known as Northern Star.

Ultra-pale, ultra hoppy, ultra sexy, ultra modern golden ale showcasing Northern Hemisphere hops to impart a pronounced floral and citric quality to the beer, with honey and elderflower in the nose. This beer had been so anticipated that in less than two weeks of release it had won a beer festival and sold out. Not wanting to disappoint its many fans, we have rebrewed it and keep it on permanently.

Aroma is straight elderflower, with some other fruit and grass if you dwell into it for too long. Head is good and light, like the beer itself (it actually looks too pale to be interesting! Surprise!). There is a good bitterness in the flavour, accompanied by tropical fruit and a very citrusy overtone. No overt maltiness, but some very slight sweetness balances the beer out. In general, a very light, refreshing, hoppy beer. In a way not unusual, but does deliver what it promises.

Smell of honey, hops, fruit. Hazy golden colour, very high white head. Aroma of fruit, dry hops, grass. Some honey in finish. Very dry palate, very light body, very flat carbon. One of the smoothest ales Iíve had. Extremely light, yet not watery. Very nice.

Knelson24 (10) - SPAIN - AUG 30, 2016
Is this the APA Iíve been looking for? Nice bright flavor, citrusy, clean with a light finish. Very drinkable, noticeably hoppy. This is a solid and well balanced beer in my opinion, Iíd definitely buy it when I see it.

GoufCustom (1617) - HONG KONG - JUL 17, 2016

330 ml can bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.

Looks: Translucent golden honey colour with a cloud of misty yeast particles; Two finger head with crumpety white foam which lasts for 4 minutes; Beautiful sticky lacing and very slight carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant Ale malt, with strong passion fruits, canned peaches, pineapples, honey, strong floral, sugar, bread, strong yeast, lemon and light grass.

Taste: Close to light sweet Ale malt, with wheaty tartness, light grapefruits, citrus, yellow fruits, floral, light molasses, biscuits, strong yeast, light lemon, fair bitter hops and grass.

Body: Mid to light body. Thin but creamy palate.

Mouth Feel: Solid maltyness in a slightly watery yet very smooth background with notable wheaty tartness. Low-fi grapefruit and citrus echo the floral and pretty light sweetness. Yeasty with light lemon to round. Light and refreshing!

Hoppiness: Strong passion fruits, canned peaches, pineapples, strong floral, lemon and light grass in nose. Light grapefruits, citrus, yellow fruits, floral, light lemon and grass in taste; Bitterness is close to medium for a lasting, fairly astringent grassy finish.

After Taste: Fairly dry. Smooth and light bitter to mouth.

Comments: This is pretty much in the mould of Session IPA with very nice tropical fruity aroma, yet taste is light touch of malt and hops with smooth palate and relaxing impression on all fronts. Pretty well-made already but stronger hop taste and variety will be ever better. Easy going chill-out material!

lello4ever (679) - ITALY - JUL 13, 2016
Dorata, lievemente velata, schiuma molto sottile. Al naso sentori erbacei, fruttati ed agrumati. Carbonazione elevata. Leggera, floreale. Note agrumate, pompelmo. Malto nascosto a favore di una discreta amarezza, specie sul finale.
