14/20 hoppy, mango and passion fruit, smooth, very good but I guess it's like a lot of other beers.

330ml bottle. Cloudy orangey colour (maybe because the yeast fell in and apparently it’s supposed to stay in the bottle for this one) with one finger white head. Aroma: hops and some pale malts, citrus fruit, tropical fruit, mango. Taste: hoppy, tropical and citrus fruits, little bit of yeast, malt. Bitter finish. Good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Well-developed tropical fruit are accompanied by flowers and coniferous resins in this characterful New World-style Pale Ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sizeable head of foam tops the misty golden shine.
-Mouthfeel is frothy and on the dry side, which increases drinkability.
-The aroma is highly pleasant.
-This hoppy brew isn’t good because it is intense; it is good because it is chock full of bright flavors.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ BierCab. Soo thirsty, that I think this will be a good one no matter what it tastes like. It starts really good with a glowing peach orange cloudy body under a huge almost fluffy lingering white head. Fruity hoppy nose with peaches, lots of nice fruit sweetness and grass. Really inviting. Lots of citrus and grapefruit in the grassy well hopped taste. It’s light oily in the mouth and about average on the bubbles. As mentioned anything would be nice right about now, but this was actually really good. A really nice piney finish on this one - something the massive burp really revealed. Yeah, a summary delicious well hopped American pale ale on a lovely day. 11.08.2014
