12 oz bottle. Thanks Tim! The pour is a clear amberish gold with a decent white head and some phenomenal lacing. The aroma is huge on a mild hoppiness and a great piney resin and beautifully done hop profile. The flavor is huge on the hops and delightful on the resin with a great light skunkiness. The mouth feel is just great. There is a light body and a medium carbonation and a lingering piney bitter hoppy aftertaste. Pretty damn good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Big thanks to FlavioSP. 33 cl. bottle @ Borefts 2014. Drank about half. Amber, orange, little white head. Lots of rich pine rein in the nose, sharp, almost touch bark; Thick oily resin taste, nicely bitter, great balance, bitter grapefruit, lots, good malt body but no heavy; Substantial body, every easy to drink. Amazing, one could drink a lot of this. Also the label is spectacular on top.

@ Mikkeller. Fantastisk aroma, väldigt fruktig. Bra blanserad humlig beska i smaken. Fin fyllighet och lagom kolsyrad. Gul/orange grumlig.

"well...now FFF makes 2 of the top 3 or 4 pale ales out there. i’d love a head to head with alpha king. admittedly i’m a citra sucker and this beer showcases the hop well, but has more complexity than most any other single hop beer i;ve had. i could drink these all day. citrus anyone?"

Not my "cup of tea" as it is a strong IPA tasting brew. I like a few IPAs but this is not one. My friend loves it, so different strokes. The citrus taste, especially the grapefruit, is off putting.

So, I was making my way to Zmajska’s prerelease, when I chanced upon the Nova Runda guys & Iznogud having a tasting at Ro&Do, and NR’s Marko invited me to try something... Something really, really special. This. Enormous thanks guys (especially Iznogud who brought it I guess). Dark amber/orange. Fresh, "chewy", pungent aroma, gummibears & very very light alcohol (?!), perfumey and sweetish. Damn attractive. Drier interesting silky taste, creamy/yoghurty peachy taste, notes of orange, slightly salty (?), fine bitterness, lovely. Medium bodied, just right. Mild, enjoyable bitter aftertaste. Damn well executed APA, extremely glad to have tried it!

Aromas of orange soda, cardamom, lemon and lime zest. However, lots of lupulin and earthy notes on the long, rich palate. Lush hops, and a great cereal background to showcase them.

Tap @ Mikkeller bar.

Okay, slight hoppiness on nose, citrus, grapefruit, stone fruits and pine. Not in your face hoppiness at all, but more so balanced hoppiness. Taste does not live up to the nose, malt body is quite easy and a nice foundation. Expected more, would say Surly Furious, Omnipollo Mazarin and Arctic Sunstone are way better pale ales.

Tap på Mikkeller Stockholm. Dimmig ljus bärnstensfärgad vätska med ljust skum. Mycket Välbalanserad Apa men hypen gjorde att jag förväntade mig mer.

Tap @ Mikkeller Bar. Pours orange with a small white head and beautiful lacings. Aroma is honey, grapefruit, peach and thyme. Taste is just pulsating with grapefruit. Lovely beer, perfectly rounded and balanced. Medium bitterness and carb. Goes right to the top of my APA-list...right next to Amager's and a Three Floyd's Arctic Sunstone. - with thirst, Niklas
