A 4.5% pale ale with spicy, grassy aromas and a taste of grapefruit and apricot. Undercurrent is part pale, part oats and part caramel barley. Her swirls of bold, bready and nutty malt whirl into a concoction of spicy, citrus, floral hops. Mystery lurks in those cascade and palisade hops. Her silky, creamy body will pull you under.

From Festival de las Naciones. In Duvel glass. At lunch back home, with breaded steaks and fried potatoes. Perfect aroma, taste in the same level, and low ABV. What more can be asked?

Cimbasso (404) - - SEP 16, 2015
Pours a hazy gold/ orange with a small white head. Gentle aromas of resinous hops, and a taste typical of American-style IPAs. Grapefruit, pine resin and apricots are all there in the taste. There is an underlying slightly metallic thinness from the oats as well as some maltiness from the barley. Dry finish. A nicely balanced beer, but a little thin in the mouth.

Piwo złote, w kierunku pomarańczowego. Mętne. Obfita dość trwała piana. W aromacie owoce i cytrusy: pomarańcze, brzoskwinia, grapefruit oraz trawiastość. W smaku podobne, dodatkowo dochodzą herbatniki. Gorczkowe z kontrą słodową. W odczuciu piwo pełne, wysycenie średnie.

Brew_Cat (55) - Athens, GREECE - SEP 6, 2015
Pours dark orange with average creamy diminishing white head. Good lacing, almost clear, medium body with somehow sticky texture. Lively carbonation. Average malts, mostly bread, cereal and cookies, average hops floral and citrus, with hints of apricots and maybe exotic fruits here and there, somewhat spicy. Very balanced regarding sweetness and bitterness, interesting palate. Not your average ale, if I may say. Really good one!

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange colour with a foamy white head. Aroma of orange, lemon, some grapefruit, biscuit, maybe oats, slight yeast and grassy, floral hops. Taste of orange, lemon, biscuit, grapefruit, some caramel, subtle pine and grassy, floral hops. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A bittersweet, fruity finish with a lingering floral hop bitterness. A pleasant, hoppy APA with a sweet, biscuity malt backbone. Good.

Tap at Hopsmiths. Nice, soft and citrusy. Aroma is biscuity malt and lemon, bit grainy. Taste is good, quite easy drinking and light, but with a little thickness to it. Nice.
