martjoobolut (4947) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 9, 2017
Bottle (thanks fatphil). Pours golden. Aroma is fruity, cucumber, citrus. Flavor is sweet and bitter, fruits, citrus, sugar, grapefuit. Finish is sugary and dry. Overall: drinkable, but clearly past it's prime.

FatPhil (16960) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 9, 2017
355ml bottle (Ales By Mail) (6:4:6:4:13=3.3)
Gold, huge persistent frothy head. Gentle sweet fruity piney hops in the aroma, some caramelly malts too. Taste shows both of those, and that they are in balance. Bitter hopping is a little soapy, but that aspect is fortunately quite brief. Nice simple thirst-quenching pale ale.

Juks (958) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 9, 2017
354 smth ml bottle, thanks FatPhil. Pours clear golden, thick off-white head stays nicely, lacing. Aroma is fruity, orange, tangerine, caramelly. Taste is caramelly, grassy hoppy, piney, orange peel. Piney finish. Medium bodied, average carbo. Well, not bad, drinkable.

cheap (6020) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2017
Well, I've passed this bottle by many times because I thot I already tasted it. But no! Here goes: Pale off yellow with an orange tint, chunks floating around. Taste is almost IPA but not quite. Seems to have quite a personality. Mild hop perfume nose. Gets more like an IPA as the session continues. Not impressive at first but finishes with a big bitter ending. Yes, now I'll say it can qualify as an IPA. Does not hide alky well and to say this is sessionable is a misnomer.

unclemike (3170) - Junction City Kansas, Kansas, USA - SEP 7, 2017
Clear light copper. Plenty of juicy and citrusy hops, some caramel malt. The flavor is pretty aggressively bitter up front, with a nice pithy grapefruit quality, fades to a slightly sweeter middle, the finishes with a lingering bitterness. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Very solid APA.

3.8
oobawa (1662) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 4, 2017
Tasty pale ale, big on West Coast pine-n-citrus hops, but offering up a gentle malt sweetness that pairs nicely with the bitter back end. Starts with a good mix of caramel and cereal grains, then takes up moderate grapefruit and orange notes before developing a sticky, resinous pinecone finish. Creamy texture remains sparkly enough to pad the IBUs on the fade. Nose lacks much oomph, but the pour's absolutely gorgeous, coming out a clear gold with a thick, lasting white head and tons of lace. Great go-to pale.

3.2
balloonbuffoon (535) - - JUL 27, 2017
12floz bottle, BBD: 12.07.2017, $1.50 unit cost, pint glass. Appears gold with sediment in suspension. Decent head creation and retention. Herb-citrus aroma carries over to the palate. Not a whole lot of malt backing, but after having BR’s Pace Car this is much better - nor is it as harshly bitter. Decent enough for a try.

3.8
MaltOne (380) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 22, 2017
Pours slightly hazy, golden amber. Nice complex hoppy aroma, hints of malt and spice. Flavor is outstanding - big malt base adds body and complexity to a complex hop mixture of resin and citrus and fruit; hints of caramel malt sweetness on behind a crisp, hop forward presence. Great juicy mouthfeel. Overall, this one is in the top of the APA list.
