Hazy brown with scummy head. Highly carbonated aroma. Sweet and citrusy, with an underlay of hoppy bitterness. Short palatte, a bit astringent on the end.

Better than expected given the cheap price and low scores. Pours clear and golden amber with creamy white head. Aroma is pine, citrus, caramel, with a metallic edge. Some Cascade in there, but short of the better APAs. Malty, quite sweet, but thin and lacking body for the ABV. Much better when it warms up a little and the aromas start coming through stronger.

A real nasty flavour. Definitely unlike any APA I’ve ever tasted. All round a very poor ale, with delusions of grandeur.

oh6gdx (23913) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 18, 2015
Bottled. Ambery golden colour with a small head. Aroma is fruity, floral, some mild rubbery and grainy notes. Flavour is fruity, floral, some earthy and herbal notes along with mild grains and some cooked vegetables as well. APA yes, but feels kind of half hearted and cheap.

ianwelby (867) - SCOTLAND - APR 17, 2015
Lively and clear amber beer with a thick foamy head. Light hoppy citrus smell. Flavour is a touch underwhelming to be honest. It starts off promising: hop, light fruits (apple, perhaps) along with the zesty citrus but it kind of peters out into nothingness. It’s not watery as such, just the taste doesn’t hang about for long.

nihtila (2284) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 27, 2015
16.1.2015. Aroma of raisin caramel, somehow impure. Taste is similar, sweetish. Something tastes artificial.

christhoel (286) - chesterfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Amber to gold with white head. Some hoppiness on the nose when opening, nicely fresh. This leads to a fairly sweetish, fruity beer, peach and avocado notes perhaps, some sweetish pear

A nice, crisp, hoppy American pale and great value as sainsbury's do the import leg work.
