Can, BBE 12/2015. Beautiful hazy amber colour with a smooth white head, some yeast particles on the bottom of the glass. Aroma is cramel malts, piney hops and yeast. Flavour is caramel malts, piney and fruity hops. Quite soft and smooth mouthfeel. Not so very bitter, could be more. Completely different beer than last summer which was also different than a year before.

Hazy, dark orange colour. Frothy white head. Mild, yet pleasant aroma with citrus hops. Refreshing citrus-like hops and a bit of caramel malt in the taste. Medium body. Well-balanced palate with medium carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A bargain! Heavily hopped taste. Hints of grape and slight caramels touch. With just slightly more aromatic, perfumy or citric overtones the taste would have been a 10 in my book.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Great bargain for its price here in Finland! I really enjoy this APA with a strong hoppy aroma. I think it is quite well balanced too. Even though it might get mixed to any market beers here, for me it works almost as well as some more expensive import beers. I am comparing more to IPA beers, as I have not had so many APA’s. Maybe slightly too bitter aftertaste at least from a can.
