3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful clear golden-light orange colour, with a one finger white head. Aroma is citrussy floral hops. Taste is sweet on the tongue with a fairly long bitter finsih. Nice oily texture which mixes well with the foamy head. Nice beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
shared with Konfuzzi. Aromas and taste of earthy, herbal hops with that spring onion hint of freshly harvested hop cones, quite rare in this intensity. Wonderful mouthfeel, light and full. An APA with an outstanding hop profile quite off the beaten path of tropical/fruity hops.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ein schlankes und frisches Pale Ale. Hat eine schöne Aromatik die mich ein wenig an Obstkuchen erinnert. Könnte ein wenig mehr Malzkörper vertragen, aber für einen Grillnachmittag bestimmt perfekt.

2014-12-11. Very lightly hazy bright orange body with a large creamy off-white head. 4+ Aroma has a lightly dusty quality to the malt, caramel tinged pale malt, modest hops. Flavour is moderately bitter throughout, pleasant sweet orange citrus notes, which grows as it warms up. Average plus bodied palate with good carbonation. 3+ Solid. A bit too cold at first. Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden color, medium to big sized off-white head. Wonderful grassy, piney aroma. Medium bitterness, a bit too light. Watery texture, lively carbonation. Great aroma, but taste is kind of disappointing.

Tao@Pudel and bottled previously. Fruity and citrusy. Poured pale golden with thin head. Medium bodied with pleasant carbonation. Quite close to a perfect APA. I still can’t get used to carbonation. As in most of the cases it is quite different when compared to stored bottled version. Next one to be bottled for comparison.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Amber in colour, capped by a frothy white head.
An explosion of citrus on the nose, accompanied by pine.
Slightly sticky mouthfeel. Very nice balance of hops and caramel malts in the tastes. Some sweet biscuits too.
Overall, a beautifully balanced beer, that is right up my alley.
