3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 500 ml bottle at Il Maltese. Pale gold, slightly hazy, with a tiny, bubbly, moderately persistent white head. A true tropical fruit explosion, intense, powerful and quite fresh. Very hoppy, notes of mint, bubblegum, pine needles, quite leafy and "green", if that makes any sense. Slightly astringent, moderately bitter but very clean, tasty and aromatic. Tiny malt backbone, tropical fruity aftertaste. Soft carbonation, light to medium body, creamy texture. Lovely.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light hazy straw yellow coloured beer with quite delicate head on top but lots of nice lacing. Aroma has lots of tropical fruits from the Nelson Sauvin hops. There is citrus and grapefruit too. Nicely fresh aroma. Taste starts with citrus and grapefruit. Then sweeter tropical fruits kick in. Not that bitter so pretty nice fresh APA. Medium body with medium carbonation. Excellent fresh American Pale Ale. Or one could say, South Pacific Pale Ale.

Citrus fruits and Mangos in the taste. Fine carbonation, golden pale color and superb hoppy bitterness.

Bottle from Cambridge Wine Merchants (Mill Road). Straw colour, clear. Impressive but short-lived white head. Decent fruity aroma: citrus, pineapple, lemon drops. Well-balanced taste: bitter but not too much so. Turns to a luscious lemony sour-bitter at the end. Nice touch. Just the right amount of carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours slightly cloudy golden with a little white head. The aroma features floral and fruity notes with a touch of honeyed maltiness - a bit more subdued in hoppiness than I expected. Taste is fairly well balanced between pale maltiness and fruity hoppiness. The palate is light to medium bodied, slick and average in carbonation. Nice but would have enjoyed a sharper hop bite.

Great aroma, and the hops really do give it nice delicate tropical fruit flavours - almost tastes like a punch at the start. The body is pretty full for a light bottled APA.

bottle, thanks mowbeer, seemed like a good bottle to walk around bamberg with. fresh and zesty aroma - pine and grapefruit nectar; fair old whack of bitterness, hints of fruit tella; very drinkable

Pours a hazy orange yellow with a thin off white head. Aroma of citrus and pepper. Taste is sweet with notes of apricot And orange. Just enough bitterness to round out the sweetness. Finish is dry and crisp.
