Smak och doft av tropisk frukt, humle, citrus. Mycket frisk, torr och lagom söt. Välbalanserad med en lätt grape- tallskottsbeska. Riktigt fin. Drucken på fat. MagnusA (5) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2013 does not count
From tap at launch party at Stearin 28/3 2013. Crisp hoppy taste of grape fruit and tropical fruits. Pale and slightly cloudy. In the aftertaste a very balanced bitterness appears. Unde (1128) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 17, 2013
Golden yellow looking beer with light head and leaves nice lacing to the glass. Very fresh scent, green grass and some citrus fruits with some sweetness as well. I was told there would be hints of kiwi in it, and I’m starting to notice it a little bit. Very refreshing APA, and ultimate beer for hanging out outside. At first quite sweet tropical fruit taste which turns into bitter feel at the end. And damn there is definitely kiwi in there! Overall very refreshing beer with sweet fruits and kiwi, damn I like this. Leighton (22027) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2013
Sampled at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013 - Day 2, Session 2. Noted as the Citra & Galaxy edition. Pours clear, bright yellow-gold with a fine, white cream head. Nice, lightly dried citrus aroma with bits of grapefruit, tangerine and pineapple. Light to medium sweet flavor with lemon rind, balancing pale malts, light minerals. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Very clean finish, mildly resinous with notes of lemon and grapefruit. Superb. _angst_ (4810) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2013

lusikka (7819) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 8, 2013
Draught @ Konttori, Tampere. Pours a cloudy bright yellow colour with a white firm head. Aroma of strong tangy citrus, mango and caramel. Flavour of crispy citrusy hops, exotic fruits, English toffee, grass and some maltiness. Medium bodied and a tangy citrusy bitter finish. Drinkability is dangerously high. Refreshing as well. Great stuff, much better than Nognes Global Pale Ale. I could drink this all day, any day. One of the best APA’s I’ve tasted. rarbring (2295) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2013

Frisk fruktig lukt med preg av lys malt, humle, barnåler, lauv, gras, kattepiss, tørka frukt. Frisk smak med preg av lys malt, humle, lauv, gras, barnåler, litt sitrus. God bitterhet som set litt. Veldig frisk og god.
Draught at Stearin, Göteborg.
Cloudy golden color with rich hop-induced foam. Aroma is near perfect with rich piney, woody and grapey hops. Mouthfeel is almost the lightest imaginable and the hops are less pronounced here. Very clean beer overall with good bitterness. Vignale (3962) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 9, 2013
Drucken på fat på Bishop Gustav. Humlad med citra och galaxy. Ljus, gul med en svag grön ton, dimmig vätska. Stor frisk humledoft med citrus i allmänhet och limezest i synnerhet. Lätt kropp, mycket torr, frisk, nästan citrussyrlig, stram men lätt efterbeska. Mycket citrus men även en liten ananas, papayatvist, gissningsvis från galaxyn. Riktigt god.
