Medium malty colour and with a wonderful tarty hop taste, full of citrusy fruits. Wonderfully balanced, not too strong, and could imagine drinking a lot of them! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Spab (2261) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2014
500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear golden orange with large, lasting white head. Aroma is quite biscuity with lemon and other tropical fruit. Flavour has big biscuity malt with solid lemon and grapefruit zest. Modest bitterness in finish. Carbonation on the lively side. Nice APA.

mR_fr0g (2413) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle at the campsite in deal Kent. Aroma is wet grass, light citrus lemon, chalk and light pine needles. Flavour is nice clean base malt, grassy citrus hop and a nice crisp finish. Palate is medium light bodied with moderately high carbonation. Really well integrated and balanced malt / hops. Super drinkable. Superb.

martjoobolut (565) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 8, 2014
0,5L bottle. Shared by suurjuust, thanks! Pours golden with off-white head. The head stays. Aroma is heavy citrus, malt, and slight cat piss. Flavor is citrus, grapefruit, lemon, malt. Finish is grapefruit and dry bitter. Overall: decent citrusy beer, but not really exciting.

A very good hoppy pale ale, pale colour with a nice head. Aroma is very refreshing bitter with flowery herbal hints.

hangunder (212) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2014
Smells quite nice, grapefruit and pine upfront with a hint of sweet malt. Hazy golden color, fairly long lasting white head for an APA. Interesting flavors, upfront some tropical fruit juicyness comes through, followed by a fruity/piney finish with a bit of biscuity malt. Finish is on the bitter side for an APA. Medium bodied and average carbonation. A good beer, but the hop profile doesn’t appeal to me personally. Well balanced.

matis (72) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle. Clear, golden colour. Fruity, zesty, bready aroma. Dry marmelade in taste. Lot of grassy notes too but it’s nice corelated with citruses. Moderate bitterness with some old, flat hops recognizable. Sessional, drinkable APA.

suurjuust (964) - ESTONIA - JUL 5, 2014
Golden beer, medium white head. Nose is flowery hops, malt, fruit, citrus. Hoppy-grassy flavor with fruit and citrus. Dry finish, lingering hops and fruits. Crisp mouthfeel. Nice albeit simple brew.

BeerSkull (1234) - SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2014
Aroma and taste of mainly hops, fruit, flowers and sweet figs. Aftertaste of dry hops.

Keg. Golden beer with a thick cream head. Nose is mango and lemon. Slight smokiness and cream. There?s a light smokiness in the mouth and warm fruits. Lovely stuff.
