Light and refreshing. Everything about this beer is subtle and restrained, undemanding. Subtle citric hops on a subtle biscuit malt. Not my cup of tea, but I can certainly understand how it would be somebody else’s cup of meat.

About one of the best American Pale Ale’s I’ve had. It is a truly brilliant balance of hops and aroma’s of fruit. Very nice texture and a lovely ale.

Lele (196) - Padova, ITALY - MAR 15, 2015
ASPETTO: bel biondo oro limpido, con schiuma bianca, fine e persistente, che si attacca bene al bicchiere. AROMA: veramente interessante e appagante, che apre lo stomaco e stimola l’appetito. Molto luppolo, insieme a del resinoso e a dell’erbaceo. Aroma decisamente pulito. GUSTO: Si ripropongono i sentori presenti nell’aroma. Il luppolo le fa da padrona, con tutti i suoi aromi avvolgenti, senza mai essere molto amara. Il retrogusto è amarognolo e persistente. Carbonizzazione media e corpo tra il medio e il leggero. CONCLUSIONE: le APA non sono decisamente il mio stile preferito, ma devo riconoscere che questa birra è veramente ben fatta, un equilibrio di freschezza, pulizie ed eleganza. Fa sicuramente il suo sporco lavoro di dissetare e lascia un bel ricordo di sé.

23.4.2014. Golden colour, thick white head. Aroma is refreshing with some citrus, malts and tangerine. Flavour has citrus, tangerine and hops, some pine. Finish has malts and slight bitterness. Not very strong but very fruity, refreshing and tasty golden apa.

teorn88 (3489) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2015
Keg at CBC Clerkenwell, London. It pours a rich straw/golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is big on fruity zingy hops, light malty caramel, grass and tangerine. Taste is medium bitter and lightly sweet and dry, with more notes of citrus, tangerine, biscuit, grass and tropical fruits. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, tasty and refreshing, nice pale ale

VictorStr (1542) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2015
Aromen fruktig, annars tyckte jag sen var lite trött, kanske gammalt fat? Beska i smaken, vissa citrustoner, lätt i kroppen.

Delicious American pale ale with a creamy head. Apricot, citrus and floral notes with biscuity malts. Light carbonation. Tastes like morning dew should.

Turboninja (148) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle@Ohranjyvä, Tampere, Finland. Medium aroma with fresh bisquity fruits. Light orange color with ligh/medium natural white head. Medium taste with dry peach, earth and pine. A hint of vax and sourness. Semi-balanced. Medium/narrow taste spectrum and short aftertaste. Medium/light body, watery, medium carbonation. Overall nice British-style APA except watery palate and a bit waxy flavor.
