3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is slightly hazed dark orangish amber with a light tan head. Nose is very hoppy and oiliy. Doughy butery note underneath it all. Taste is same with a light lingering bitterness if the finish. Hops are strong, bitterness is kept in check, falls off slightly in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: The smell is mainly citric, ripe oranges, but also some soap associations.
Appearance: The beer is clear amber, has a high off-white head that leaves good lacing.
Taste: The taste has much malt, bread, toffee, some lemon juice and peel. Slightly chemical.
Palate: Medium high carbonation, rather soft and somewhat oily, a dry finish.
Overall: Seem to have been brewed properly, but does not respond 100% to mine nose and tongue.
Note: Cask at De Klomp. Reviewed 2011-05-07.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled, rated 2011-07-07) Clear copper with a smallish, lasting head. Caramely-malty, grapefruity and exotic-fruity, perfumy nose. Nutty-hoppy flavor with grapefruit, and some stuffiness. Almost medium body, balanced CO2. An easy and quite nice APA. Slightly stuffy, and closer to British, than US hoppiness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy amber, moderate cream colored, small-bubbled head. Nose is rather hoppy, lots of grapefruit bitterness with some earth and a bit of stale warehouse/cardboard. High attenuation accents flavors of tea leaves and grassy hop, moderately dank with misplaced bubblegum/sugar mid palate. Bit oily for the moderate body, but refreshingly bitter throughout.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught (handbottled, thanks Kike!). Hazy deep golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is spruce, fruity and grassy notes aslong with some sweet maltyness as well. Flavour is crisp maltyness meeting a rather fruity and floral sweetness. Balanced, but rather bitter for being an APA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Poured dark orange in colour with off-white head. Fruity and slightly grassy aroma. Flavour is quite bitter at first with some yeasty notes as well. The taste evens out more in the end, yet quite grassy bitterness mostly in aftertaste. Felt like quite heavy to drink.
