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 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle: BBD 18 Aug 16. Poured at home into an Arrogant Bastard Ale badged US straight sided 16oz glass (didn’t fit) on 20 Nov 15. Slight haze to the mid-golden body, on top an impressive foam blanket of tight white bubbles. Hops all the way here, yet not overly bitter at first, it does progress towards real bitterness in the finish though. Some fruit esters within both the nose and taste with mild citrus notes in the background.

Dorada anaranjada. Nebulosa. No mucha espuma blanca. Aroma lupulado, citrico. Muy agradable en boca, con base acaramelada y rico tono frutal con notas citricas y de uvas. Cuerpo moderado y bien de gas. Equlibrada, refrescante y bebible.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from CBB, Osaka.
L: pours a slightly hazy bright gold with a massive soapy foamy white head that settles after a few minutes.
S: a very citrusy aroma, orange, lemon, pineapple and grapefruit. Quite IPA in the hop aroma.
T: not so strong on the citrus flavours, it has a Pilsner-type vibe with a light spice, biscuity malt, but with a bitter floral kick.
F: it’s quite light and refreshing, a smooth peppery start that ends up with a nice bitter hop wash.
O: very decent effort, the spicy flourishes added something, but a stronger malt presence would’ve made it top notch for me. Very sessionable feel.

Bottle shared at a friend’s house. Pours golden with medium off-white head. Medium body, slightly sticky texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. Aromas and tastes of exotic fruits, pineapple, apricot, pine, grass, caramel, biscuit, citrus, and hints of lemon. A very fine example of APA.

Poir pale golden with a light head that retreats to the side of the glass. The aroma is of pine and slightly of apple skin Tiste is hoppy as you would expect but has a creamy aftertaste.
