Draft at the brewpub. Golden and American all the way, this is a well balanced and utterly drinkable APA ... fully flavored malt, subtle but evident citrus hop. Delicious, definitely sessionable/chuggable. (#5811, 10/9/2014)

Tap. Pours hazy butterscotch, small creamy white head, good lacing. Aroma is faint, mostly pine, some passion fruit. Flavor is light sweet, pine, leaves, biscuit, light bitter. Lacking the tropical lunch i expect from nz hops. Lightish body. Ok.

Dégustée en fût au American Flatbread à Burlington, VT. De couleur dorée et claire. Nez de houblon floral, légèrement fruité (agrumes, notes de fruits tropicaux) et herbeux avec des notes citriques et résineuses, moyen de malt pâle légèrement sucré avec des traces de pain. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture aux notes huileuses. Moyenne-légère amertume de houblon fruité (agrumes, léger de fruits tropicaux, notes d’abricots), légèrement floral aux notes citriques et herbeuses (une amertume présente en arrière-goût toute la gorgée) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de malt pâle légèrement sucré et aux notes croustillantes avec des notes de pain et de faibles traces de miel puis en finale l’amertume de houblon revient en premier plan en se faisant plus herbeuse et légèrement asséchante et aux petites bnotes résineuses. Post-goût moyen et un peu sec, moyennement amer de houblon fruité (zeste d’agrumes, notes de pelures d’abricots), herbeux et légèrement citrique avec des notes de grains de malt. (3 avril 2013)

In short: A clean and tasty grapefruity/tropical pale ale Very good.
How: Tap at brewpub.
The look: Clear orange body topped by a small white head.<b/> In long: The medium-hoppy nose is mostly tropical fruits with also some lighter herbal/coniferous notes. Taste is super crisp toasted cereals, a tiny bit of caramel+honey, juicy Ruby Red grapefruits, tropical fruits, light hops resin notes. Assertive and sharp bitterness. A very clean Pale Ale that is as tasty as it is refreshing and easy to drink. Straightforward but very well made, a superior example of what the new breed of APA can offer. People say I have a serious problem because I love to close my eyes and take my time to enjoy a nice grapefruity aroma but when I open my eyes and realize I’m not smelling a beer but I’m in fact smelling an actual grapefruit I get banned from the grocery store after throwing a fit and trashing their entire fruits section.

Pint shared two ways.
Appearance : Clear pale yellow with small foamy head. Some lacing.
Aroma : Floral and fruity hops with nice malt. Light resinous notes. Fairly restrained but well balanced.
Taste : Citrusy and fruity hops with floral notes. Finish is nicely floral with delicate fruits. Light bitterness with light malt all along.
Palate : Carbonation is a bit too aggressive
Overall : Quite good. Hopyness is a bit light for the style but not all APA needs to be packed with dry hop. Quite elegant overall. Nice malt. A bit more hops on taste than nose. Overall quite good even if not a big hop bomb (which it’s clearly not trying to be).

MartinT (7952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2012
My Bottom Line :
Tropical fruit branch out into lengthy resinous hop bitterness, while svelte honeyed malt flavors diversify this crisp New World Pale Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam tops the misty honeyed blond.
-This is drier than the average APA, which seems to let the hops express themselves even more.
-Drinkability is quite high despite the hop intensity.
-Carbonation is pretty bubbly (artificial), like all Flatbread brews.

On tap at the brewpub.

On tap at the source... Pours a mostly clear cidwray copper orange and topped with a creamy light head... Mild citrus and grains. Nothing too unique ... Grassy citrus, semi-sweet with a light bitterness. Not an overwhelming sense of the nelson portrayed in this. medium bodied or just shy of. Just ok.
