American Pale Ale
Golden in colour Chiron offers a superb balance of tart hops, juicy malt and tangy fruit while the lingering finish offers a hint of apricots and tangerines before a biscuity malt and hoppy finish.

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.

bastarda (116) - Freiburg, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2014
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.

bochi (2) - Münster, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2014 does not count
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.

jercraigs (8070) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2014
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

christhoel (195) - chesterfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2014
A clear yellow colored beer, with a white head. The aroma of hops with citrus and some sweet. The taste is bitter, dry with some fruity sweet. The aftertaste is very dry with some fruits.

HammerTroll (590) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 2, 2014
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.

Senka (564) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 1, 2014
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.

Alvar 11/2014. Well balanced APA. Maybe not the hoppiest one, still very enjoyable.

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.
