An innovative and fresh session ale in the American style, brewed with the modern hop variety Citra. Pale Ale is a shining amber example of Jessica Heidrich’s signature "Love and Hops" - easy to drink and rich with plenty of hop aromas and character. Aroma and taste - Large aroma and citrusy scent from the Citra hops with hints of elderflower, gooseberry and rhubarb reminiscent of a Sauvignon Blanc wine. Well-balanced and complex taste with distinct citrus floral bitterness. Long, fresh and aromatic bitter finish. Ingredients: Pale ale malt and Citra hops

Bottle at the flat in Stockholm. Pours clear gold with a small, frothy white head. Dry, lightly spicy citrus on the nose. Medium sweet flavor with toasted white bread, dry orange, modest grass. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Moderately resinous at the end, with more grass, a bit of toasted pine, medium sweet toasty bread. The bitterness at times is just a touch too grassy and abrasive. Otherwise, it’s a very acceptable APA.

Litet skum på en ljusorange öl. Doftar persika, ananas, citrus och blomster. Mycket bra. Beskan trivs väl ihop med sötman, men där finns också en viss tunnhet i smaken som gör att ölen inte riktigt lyfter. Fruktigheten dominerar.

Beer has nice color and smell. Taste starts strong but is missing something. Finish is a strong hop and has a lingering bitterness.

Really good beer. Wonderful fragrance. Tastes wonderful too but unfortunately a bit weak. The aftertaste is also good but can not keep still for too long. This beer I would buy again. Would that every one double IPA it would get the highest score.

mjs (4976) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 30, 2012
(Draught at Järnet, 20120626) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized, dense and white. Aroma had fruitiness and grain. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, malts, citricness, grain and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity, bitter and harsh. Quite mild for an APA but clean. Also the presence of grain in both the taste and the aroma was bit unpleasant.
