4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
An American pale from Norway? Hmm. Pour produced an amber-orange-brown body with large foamy peaks in the white head. Citrus, yeast, hop, malts and caramel nose. Taste was mid- body, notes of lemon(citrus), balanced and hoppier then most pale ales, very nice. Not surprising from this brewer.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Turbid orangy deep coppery pour with 2-finger, creamy off-white head. Aroma of heavy hops, tropical fruit, pepper, slight yeasty funk, and some floral spice. Tastes on the dry, hoppy end, very floral and spicy, with a solid caramel malt base, tons o complexity, and more fruit as ti warms. This one is outstanding!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Body pours a glowing pumpkin color; the head is tall, rocky and white. Aroma is a big juicy blend of caramelized sugars, and plump oily hops. A wonderful blend of old English Pale Ale tradition and Alpha hops. Really, this is my kind of IPA! Luscious usage of the hops… really adds a realistic character of fresh grapefruit and tangerine, a very well rounded beer. There is a mustiness on the finish to add some realism… palate is chewy yet soft… finish is dry, spicy, and plump.
A wonderful Pale Ale… really great stuff!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good sized frothy white head of dense creamy bubbles. Nice hoppy aroma with some light zesty citrus, some play doh and irish spring soap. Quite the potent aroma. Color is a hazy dark orange. Flavor is quite floral again with a bit of soft bready malts in the back ground. Very different. Sharp, zesty citrus and lemon. Minimal dryness and bitterness in the main body of flavor. Little bitterness at the finish. Lingering zippy citrus. A decent pale ale and better than expected. Or shall I say very different but good. Big thanks to etowneraser for this brew.

Cloudy orange, moderate head with good lacing and retention. Aroma is grapefruit, floral, caramel, various fruits. Flavor brings this, medium bodied and moderate bitterness. Enjoyable APA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light floral hop scent with some hints of caramel malt in the aroma. Mahogany colored body with a nice off-white head. The palate is full and leads to a really easy to drink brew that is nicely balanced between hops and malt. Hoppier than most pale ales--this is very solid.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2007 yeasty for a pale ale. caramel aroma. nice hops, pretty good aroma. sweet. taste is pretty bitter, but actually not too bad. not too good by american pale ale standards though. not much more going on than bitterness although there is an interestingly strong malt backbone. good body. not sure what this beer is exactly.

16.9 oz bottle. Clear tea with a frothy white head. Bready fresh oranges. Quite bitter with a limey edge. Touch of orange marmalade. Oily mineral finish, light carb. A hoppy pale for sure.
