An old school APA with aromas of grapefruit and honey dominating, though I get a little apricot as well. It’s predominantly bitter hops in the mouth with a strong malt structure. Like getting into a time machine and going back to the early days of US new wave brewing.

Aromas of mild malt and citrus hops. Big hop flavor is balanced with a smooth malt taste. Good dry hop finish and aftertaste.

Light straw color, bright white head. Good staying power to the head. Looks nice in the glass. nose is grain, pine, citrus, Juicy nose. Taste is burnt caramel, metal, hop water, or maybe better is bong water, and roasted grain. Feel is a bit rough. Not real pleasing. not very good at all.

AnG_BrgNor (532) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 15, 2016
Bottle. Cloudy golden with small short lasting head. Hops and grains in tha aroma. The taste is medium bitter and is dominated by grains with some hops in the background, There is something about it I dont quite like so much, something metalic/acid in the taste. I dont know if its old, the bottle is marked Aug 10 15 - 8 months ago....

Frax (60) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 9, 2016
Bottle from Shaw’s, packaged 12/11/15. Poured into a pint glass clear gold, lightly carbonated. Thin white head, moderate lacing. Nutty aroma, lightly hopped, could be sessionable but ABV is higher than it seems. According to the ratings this should be terrible, but seems pretty decent to me.
