SinH4 (1590) - Garching, GERMANY - SEP 10, 2015
Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is fruity-hoppy, with mango and citrus fruit. Taste is clean citrus, some pines, some hints of fruit tartness, a bit grassy, and some lemongrass. The body is a bit biscuity. Thirst-quenching bitterness in the finish. Refreshing and clean, one of these beers that make you want to take another sip immediately. Not bad, a benchmark modern APA.

King_Alex_II (910) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 12, 2015
Pale golden color with porous white foam head. The smell is hoppy. The taste is bitter hoppy,but has a surprising dry tart part, that comes quickly and stays as an aftertaste. This beer is a little special,yet keeps the character of the style. Very good indeed.
