3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Clear and bright golden-orange with a nice finger or so of creamy white head that leaves some lovely lacing. Very pleasant aroma of apricot cookies and clementine peel. Flavour starts sweet, with honey and biscuit notes, before moving into a mild and fruity bitterness, with notes of sweet citrus and stonefruit (esp. plum and apricot). Very good!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
First off, enormous thanks to Mario from Dva Tona (cvitko1) for hosting this huge, most generous and quality tasting. Shared with him, 1rice & Soki.
Clear golden body with a fine head. The aroma starts off promising immediately, citrus fruits & peach on the creamy malty backbone, light brown sugar notes, quite pleasant. The citric hoppiness owns the taste, with some vague peach kicking in here & there, the maltiness stays back and lets the hop rule, which was definitely a good decision. Medium grapeseed bitterness, vague fishy note at one point. A superb rendition of the style. Not, perhaps, Dark Star APA level. Are the English better at making APAs than Americans? Who knows... but they are definitely capable of making some kickass ones.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Single from the LCBO. Pours a light golden colour with an amber hue and not filtered to the max. White foamy head, decent retention and some lacing. Grainy malt with the citrus hops and mild pine needles. Expecting more of a punch from the taste, but no. Good dryness, but not much flavour. Very light hops, malts. More on the fizzy side, like a grapefruit club soda water drink. Maybe they forgot to add flavours to mine. I don’t know. Still decent overall.

Bottle, shared with TylerDurden. Bright orange-gold, lively white head. Very fresh tropical fruit hop aroma with green leafy undertones. Lightly caramel malts, grapefruit, nettles, and a subtle licorice note that kept creeping in. Very drinkable, tasty brew.
