3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle dated 05/05/15.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking bronzed golden color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds leaving some messy sticky lacing.
The smell had some light sweet citrus to a sly bitterness surrounding a slight tropical fruitiness.
The taste takes the previously mentioned aromas to town and allow a nice bittersweet citrus aftertaste leading into a semi-sweet to bitter citrus finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a dry bitter texture running along my tongue.
Overall, this was a pretty good APA that I could have again. It hits all the marks for the style and for me.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Before launching into a discourse about pale gold coloured ales with white heads, evident carbonation and so forth, but the star of the show makes itself known as soon as the the lid was ripped from the bottle. Ah, aroma in spadefuls! Pineapple, pine resin, lemon curd, passionfruit and guava. It wafts from the bottle as if under the strict control of a cartoon, directly into the olfactory receptors in my conk. It’s gorgeous! The flavour is pretty good as well with a nice tangy citrus bitterness of tangerine and kumquat. Delish. A triumph.

Bottle from Sake Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Spicy, herbal nose, a bit f yeast and tropical fruit. Dark gold straw color, with fat-bubbled lace. Herbal, hoppy flavors, some light malt, bit of citrus, and a dryish bitter finish. Thin-medium body, and feels a bit heavier than it should for the style. Very pleasant session stuff.
