drjoeng (1325) - SINGAPORE - JUL 22, 2017
5.2%ABV. APA. Poured out pale yellow. 4SRM. Nose has fresh grapefruit, lemon zest, pine. There is a hint of umami in the nose that reminds of ramen and hence is strongly reminiscent of Mikkeller’s Ramen Beer. There is also an aroma of sweet lemon drops. Mouthfeel is watery soap. Palate has wheat flour and ramen noodles, instant noodles. There are some nice sweet flavors near the end before the hop finish which are candy like in nature. Hop flavors of bergamot lemon, lemon zest, grapefruit peel. Finish is medium with a grassy hoppy finish. Overall, a very light refreshing ride without being frivolous. A full bodied, flavorful ride.

ciocanelu (2597) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUL 9, 2017
Clear bright golden color with a bit of white foam. Aroma has sweet malt and dank, chivey hops. Taste is really well balanced with clean malt and dank hops with a light bitterness. Floral, hoppy, grassy, really fresh. Light to medium body, soft carbonation. Really nice, easy drinking pale ale.

jjsint (3203) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2017
Bottle from Thirsty, Cambridge. Drunk at home. Light lemon-yellow with a large amount of visible carbonation. Georgeous citrus and apricot aroma, with a tempering biscuit note and the slightest resinous quality. Sweet and sticky, there’s a slight bitterness creeping in toward the finish, but it’s pretty sweet for an APA. A bit of bitterness stays on the tongue after the sip. Pear drops on the aftertaste. A very nice beer.
