3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice amber pour, thin white head. Aroma reveals lots of hops in this offering. Bittering hops overwhelm the flavor, though. I like to taste the malts more. Decent finish. Overall, I’d have another.

Geproefd in Bottles in Puerto Plata, uit de fles geschonken. De kleur is helder blond, de geur is niets speciaals. Voor mij heeft het een iets te bittere smaak.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 ml bottle from SuperAlko in Tallinn (€ 2.99). Half a year until BB. Near clear amber colour, head off-white, not big, retention and lacing okay. Nose is quite a boring bouquet of Caramel malts and the floral, grapefruity, yet a bit spicy-piney Cascade hops. Taste very similar, starts with moderate fruity sweetness, continuing with a rather disappointingly mild resinous bitterness. The initial airy fruitiness builds into a more full caramelly effect later on. Aftertaste a bit too malty and stale, maybe it’s just been standing on the shelf too long. Body medium, carbonation active but pleasantly soft. I imagine it’s great when fresh and in hot Californian weather… Will most def review a more fresh bottle in the future.

Bottle. Rounded pleasant fruity hops in the aroma. Light hops in the flavour on a medium malty backbone. Slightly bitter finish. (At home, 23.01.2015)

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bittering Hops: Magnum, Perle.
Finishing Hops: Cascade.
Malts: 2-row Pale, Caramel.
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 01.23.14.
A: See through orange. 1/2 finger head.
S: Grapefruit. Not as strong as other APAs.
T: Pine, biscuit.
M: Crisp. Nice and bubbly on the tongue.
O: This is definitely a softer APA in terms of hops than others, but that is an unfair comparison since it is from an earlier time than more current hop-heavy APAs. It is a very well balanced, easy drinking beer. This is a classic, a standard, and a piece of craft beer history that you can drink today. Amazing!
