3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy deep gold with a white head. Malty aromas strong with some citrus, probably grapefruit, and a hint of yeast. The flavour is very bitter with peppery hop and roasted malt, which moves through to a watery grapefruit and lemon character. Clean on the palate, with a pepper and burnt malt aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber, no head; aroma of honey, treacle; taste is initially honey, bready malt, then a zesty, peppery bitterness takes over; odd, but nice enough.

Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear light amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is light malt hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a watery light woody resin palate. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation. Served cool and it was refreshing, but a little light all round.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I was puzzled as to how a beer with a great aroma poured like a maelstrom of all head and little beer, and delivered so little taste. Think I may have had a duff beer though as sediment and somewhat cloudy donít jog my memory in ways to describe APA.

500ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clear light orange with a small white head. Nose is biscuit malts with small notes of citrus and pine. Sweet start with minimal bitterness and a very washed out finish. Light thin mouth with soft carbonation. Easy drinking but not much of interest.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Sparkling amber body with a short head. Medium body, lightly sweet, moderately bitter across the middle seems to become starchy / popcorn like / husky in the back. Light yeast powder residue left in the finish. Acidic hop oils prick the tongue, itís lively and all but overly bitter for itís sweetness, leaving the mouth parched, and a unpleasant pine resin astringency lingers in the finish. Hops have some nice juiciness (lemon balm and orange pulp and such), but itís overrun by the strong bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2015 Surprisingly restrained for an "American" brew. The low alcohol content is probably its best feature as it allows one to partake to a degree that would leave you leg less with some of their other/stronger beers.
