Saeglopur (251) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle from saveur-biere.com. Beautiful red copper, clear body, with a medium, creamy, white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, peach, red berries, caramel. Tastes of grapefruit, pine, peach, caramel, some black tea. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a medium carbonation and it finishes bitter, with lemon zest, pine and some peach. Very good. Easy to drink, with some nice hop bite and a good balance between bitter hops and caramelic malts. The hop bill could be a bit more complex maybe, but overall a really enjoyable APA.

maltman53 (268) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Pours copper-red with lasting lace. Sweet malty nose and citrusy hops. Huge caramel malt mash bill, almost like a slice of sticky toffee pudding. Overall, a great example of style if your PA style is maximum malt.

allmyvinyl (2740) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 22, 2014
Keg at Brewdog AGM 2014. Pretty much what you’d expect - clear amber, thin white head. Aromas of grapefruit and caramel. Bitter taste. Solid.

TET (1542) - FINLAND - JUN 20, 2014
An orange brown beer with a dense, medium and blond head. The nose has some tropical fruits, peaches, caramell and some pine needles. Taste has pine needles, dryer than aroma, only hint of fruits, wood, medium bitterness. Medium bodied, easy to drink. More aromatic fruits would be needed, now only the bitterness is dominating.

Piotr (26) - POLAND - JUN 4, 2014
Poured dark copper colour, the aroma isn’t very intensive, some hoppes and fruits, a bit flat, nicely balanced with rather rich body. Very drinkable and enjoyable, a bitter aftertaste which is very nice. Deserves the score!

wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 29, 2014
355ml bottle into a shaker glass; served cold. Aroma: Caramel with a touch of vanilla oak. Malt-forward, just a touch of resin-y hops. Appearance: Barely translucent amber body. Not a lot of visible carbonation. Thin off-white head. Moderate+ lacing. Taste: Caramel malt for sure. Bready, with just enough hop bitterness to round out the flavor profile. Palate: Moderate+ body, a little thick. Finish is long and ends on gentle bitterness towards the rear of the palate. Overall: Similar flavors to Stone Brewing Co.’s Levitation Ale, but the body is more thick, and the flavors are more malt-forward and less bitter. A nice pale ale!

jstonerock24 (106) - Englewood, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Aroma is of caramel malts and light citrus hops. Flavor is pretty bold for a pale ale. Reminiscent of a lighter IPA. Stone does it again with a fantastic beer.

chucklemation (405) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Pours a dark copper with a foamy white head. Has a light malt aroma. Flavor is sweet malts and low bitterness. Has a light to medium mouth feel. The malts are a tad too sweet, and there isn’t much else to this. It’s okay, but not something I would return to.
