4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled: Cobber coloured. Decent head, that has a medium lasting. Aroma is hoppy but not as much as other examples from this mighty brewery. Seems a little more balanced. Flavour is smooth and hoppy and gives a pleasant felling on the tongue. I very much like the balanced bitterness in the end. Yet another great beer from Herbjones in sunny ca. Many thanks.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at the South Beach Bar & Grille, South Beach, SD 19/04/14.
Had this many times in years gone by, time to catch up with a rating!
Clear dark amber with a moderate off white come light beige covering.
Nose is floral hops, light perfume, caramel malt, orange, toasted malt.
Taste comprises caramel malt, perfumed tones, subtle hoppage, orange rind, straw.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
A well made easy drinking APA which would suit those just starting to acquire a taste for hoppy beers. I used to think this was hoppy when I first had it 10 or so years ago, how my palate has changed - decent enough none the less.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer rocks.
Wonderful aroma of rich malt and lively hops. Alcohol, caramel, toffee, vanilla and a unique hop spiciness are evident in the nose as well.
A beautiful, sparkling, deep amber hue. Large, white, creamy head with excellent lacing. Mostly diminishing... eventually.
The flavor is superb. Creamy rich malt. Slightly sweet up front. Medium bitter on the backside. Very well balanced. Notes of toffee, honey and caramel. Medium-bodied. Lively carbonation with a creamy mouthfeel. Nice, dry, crisp finish. Excellent pale ale. If I lived in Southern California, not many days would go by when I woudn’t enjoy one of these beautys. Reminds me a bit of Rogue’s Dead Guy Ale. If you enjoy this beer, you will certainly enjoy the Rogue as well.

355ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
Sweet caramelly aroma. Bright orange, floaty bits, Watery palate. Toffe and some walnut papers at first.. But after the first sip it’s just sweet water with some hint of hops. Another uninteresting APA.
