Bottle from Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa, CA. Pours amber gold with a white head. Light pitted fruit aroma. Near med body. Flavor is very fruity with a dose of floral. Finishes rather smoothly bitter. Excellent, arguably subtle, ale. marcus (10227) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours clear golden with a modest off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a fruity pale malt flavor with a nice transition to hop bitterness. Sticks to the palate. pilsnerrogge (2948) - Finspång, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2012

A gusher. Pours a muddy orange colour with a large head. Orange marmalade, pine apple and pine on the nose. Flavour is resiny pine, honey and bitter oranges. Pretty good!
Nice top, like the color and the overall look, the taste is not really 100% what I like to sweet and not as hoppy and fresh as prefer..
I do enjoy it... Nisse666 (7421) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2012

Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - capped 750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium orange with a sticky white head that leaves a luxuriant coat of lacing. Aroma is more floral than spruce with a hint of yeast. Fresh flavor with some nice slight citrusy bittersweet notes, a hint of fruitiness - nectarines and pears, very light spiciness, reminiscent of grains of paradise. Thickish mouthfeel. Pretty solid. Vignale (3829) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2012
en fantastisk armo som är rena fruktcocktailen med mogen ananas, papaya, passionsfrukt och lichi. Smaken når inte riktigt samma höjder men även den är väldigt fruktig, söt, lite jästig som bidrar med en pepprig ton, måttlig beska som är lite gräsig. Jag tycker att den har drag av Alesmiths IPA, men den når inte riktigt ända fram. Väldigt god hur som helst. anders37 (26625) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2012

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2012 Bottle from Systembolaget. Big head and hazy yellow-orange liquid. Weird smell with yeast, green apples, cheese and some citrus hops in the background. Different flavour, citrus hops, fairly high malt sweetness and a deep yeasty aroma. Nice mouth feel but finishes dry. Interesting take on an APA. VsXsV (4438) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy orange/light amber liquid with big off-white head. Aroma is quite tropically fruity with notes of tangerine, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, pine, sweet cereal, herbal hops and marmalade candies. A bit blackberry action as well. Really nice stuff! Taste is dry and medium bitter with a nice, biscuity malt base that supports the hoppy notes (mango, tangerine) well. Some light booze. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Would have never have guessed that is 8%! My bottle says 7.0 though. Very drinkable for the ABV. Just great stuff.
