3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a hazy golden amber color. The head is a two finger white shade with a frothy-looking texture. It doesnít have the best retention in the world, either.
S: There are some decent tropical qualities on the nose. I also note touches of grass, pine, and grapefruit. Aromatically, itís hardly explosive, just oh-so-pleasant.
T: Itís initially mildly bitter, with notes of piny hops and a bit of mango. I particularly enjoy the midtaste and its subtle fruit esters. The finish sees a return of piny bitterness. What it lacks in excitement it makes up for in drinkability.
M: I think itís a hair too fizzy and sharp on the back end - otherwise, I have little to complain about here, as the light, dry texture makes it eminently drinkable.
O: Very easy to like. Granted, itís not a fresh bottle, but beggars canít be choosers, really. This really works well as simple refreshment.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Barely any head whatsoever to this one, disappears quick. Definitely pick up the pine and citrus aroma. Good beer, nothing too special.

I donít remember where I had this but think it was a pub in ÷rebro. Fresh smell with gras and flowers and hops. Light fruity taste with citrus. Easy to drink and fresh, not a ton of hops but still nice.

On tap at Murray Cheese Bar. Strikingly light yellowy colour with a long lasting white head. Spritzy lemony hop lavour, decent level of bitterness. hint of funky brett - bit confused as to whether this is the right beer, but the menu and website seem to suggest it was this beer and the barman definitely said it was going to be bretty.

I feel this is better than the Southern tier Gemini. This is my 3rd live over the last 2 weekís or so, but have nor sat and rated until now. Aroma Is hops, pine, oak, floral notes. Look is medium yellow, medium white head, lacing lasting well into drinking. Taste is vegetable, hops, slightly salty aftertaste. Feel is lively and crisp. Not bad.

A nice bright APA on the edge of an IPA but with enough malty backbone to fit the style. Big citrus aroma and a juicy finish.

bottle - Pours hazy yellow with a half inch white head. Itís very bubbly. The aroma has citrus and pine notes. It tastes mildly bitter with resin and citrus hop character. Itís medium bodied and overall and okay beer. I wasnít impressed though so the 99% style rating here surprises me. Maybe I had an old bottle?

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beautiful appearance, this pours out a hazy copper with a tan head that sticks around for ever. Good smells here, citrus hops dominate. Flavors of intense citrus and crisp yeasty malt. Hops used to produce delicious flavors rather than bitterness, that only comes into play a little bit in the aftertaste. Mouth feel is a little too dry for my taste, otherwise a nice balance between thick and thin, fizzy and refreshing. All in an outstanding APA.
