Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2013
Bottled. The aroma has notes of amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of hops, spices, malt, caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, spices, hops, and lemons, leading to a bitter finish.

Draft at Fork and Brewer, paired with Asian noodles. Hazy golden color, thick fluffy white head with giid retention and solid lacing. Aroma of stonefruit. Taste is sweet and malty with a bit of pine at the finish.

bluevegie (3042) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 6, 2010
Tried on tap at Cookie. Slightly murky amber golden body with lasting head. Hops don’t dominate the aroma though they try. Resinous and grassy in the taste, good length.

TimE (2977) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 25, 2011
medium amber color. Apples and oranges, soft hoppy nose. Not so American. Medium body. Dry somewhat bitter mouth. Decent, but lack malt backbone and seems more like a crowd pleaser than a pale ale that is trying to take it to the next level.

maneliquor (2787) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2011 Pours a hazy amber orange with a very small tan head. Aromas of marmalade, citrus, honey. Was expecting a little more on the nose but it’s still a nice aroma. Has some nice pine and eartchy hops. Good balance of citrus in there too. Good beer overrall. Super easy drinking

Beersiveknown (2473) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAR 23, 2014
bottle at home from dicey o’reillys, BBE june 2013
hazy pale amber with fluffy white head. lovely lemon pith and herbal hops on the nose, subdued now perhaps but i reckon would be lovely fresh. medium bodied, fairly dry bitterness, some gooseberry nelson sauvin character and perhaps motueka too. Lovely stuff and wish i’d tried it when i had the chance in NZ.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 6, 2010
Draught. Plenty of bitterness with this, and that hop flavour really comes through. This will please the hop lovers.

hawthorne00 (2258) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2010
Bottle. Clear copper with a large off white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, light caramel, nectarine, a little cleaning fluid. Taste is only slightly sweet with more fruit than caramel before piney bitterness. Aromatic bitter finish is not dry. There’s not a riot of flavours here - just a few good ones speaking out in ringing tones.
