mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - OCT 8, 2012
Pours a clear gold with a modest but long-lived head and a bitter, herbal hop aroma. Lightly astringent, pleasantly bitter flavour - malt unobtrusive. Herbal, those lovely white wine Nelson Sauvin notes, light pineapple. Decent body & carbonation. Very sessionable - yum!

330ml bottle from Dronfield Beer Stop - Deep golden body with loose lacing white head. Nose and taste ticks all the boxes with the floral, citrus, grapefruit, orange hints with a lingering dry bitterness. Quite refreshing really.

Pours clear copper with a big foamy head. A sweet grapefruit and bitter citrus aroma. A very bitter beer. Just right after an apple pie.

DeanF (2195) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 26, 2016
Really big bleach white head and clear golden body. Aroma of hops, hops, and more hops, but just a single hop profile, no layering. Flavour is the same single hop profile with a bit of a weaker finish. Drinkable, solid, but middling.

Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Fresh nose, with tropical fruit, light stinky hopping, and pale malts. Clear medium gold color. Flavors of citrus, light mango, resin, and small bittering, with a dryish finish. Medium body. Balanced and very drinkable.

Scotchy (23) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 12, 2016
A perfect example of the Aussies doing American Pale Ale well. Beautiful hop profile, hoppy but not overly aggressive with a good malt backbone.
