3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice aromas and flavors of floral hops, bitter hops, delicious hops and HOPS. This is a pretty intensely hoppy beer but still has enough malt to balance it out. Pours a light orange color with a frothy white head. Medium bodied with a pretty bitter finish. An excellent pale ale.
Tap @brewery: gold with a bubbly white head. Pine hop aroma with a crisp hop flavor. A little hairspray in the bitter aftertaste. Solid APA caesar (7162) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2017

COD 5/17/17. Pours a clear light amber, just beyond golden, with a very subtle touch of garnet. World class head volume, lacing and retention.
Quite outstanding nose, especially for a pale ale, that is fruit based. A mixture of classic citrus and tropical aromas present in a blended fashion with just the slightest hint of spicy spruce. The base is subtly sweet. Orange is the strongest component with pineapple, tangerine, papaya more so than mango and a faint touch of stone fruit.
Heavy light body with a texture that is slightly oily. The carbonation / body balance is very good. Effervescence is moderate but prickles the tongue just enough to help flavor separation.
The flavor profile is very good but doesn’t live up to the promise of the nose. The flavors remain mostly blended with only the light spiciness of the spruce clearly separating from the nicely flavored pack. Bitterness is mild but normal for the style. Balance is world class, intensity normal while complexity is a bit of an underachiever due to poor separation. The finish is a slow fade with just a hint of zest. anstei (2254) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUL 25, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2017 Tap at Alehouse Palmhof. Pours cloudy amber with a medium head. Aroma is tropical fruit, citric fruit, passion fruit, pineapple, some resin. Body is medium, quite dense and fruity and sweet, also decently bitter. Matching carbonation. Bitter fruity palate. Quite straightforward as an APA, but almost an IPA as well. Well done, with a good balance. ehaak26 (524) - - JUL 15, 2017
Can from Beers of the World. Aroma of citrus fruit and bready malts. Bitter finish.

Pours golden yellow with a huge foamy white head. Aroma is citrus and malt. Taste is juicy citrus. A bit tangy - in a good way. Good balance. Mild bitter aftertaste. Highly drinkable. If it were a bit cheaper and more available, this could be a go to beer.

An orange beer, a head is big and blond. Aroma has mango, citrus, hint of fructose. Taste has citrus, pine, slightly vegetable notes. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Slightly unpure, good anyway. mcberko (17854) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 4, 2017
On tap at First Draft, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out light biscuity malt and light citrus hops. Flavour is well-balanced, with some citrus hops and dry biscuity malt. Ordinary, but clean and well-balanced. Good stuff. BrewsCruisen (3) - Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2017 does not count
