Light brown, hazy beer with a beige foam. Soapy and fruity (peaches) aroma. Medium to strong bitterness. Fruity, grassy and bitter flavors. Some off notes. This is okay. Unde (1088) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 3, 2014
Orange yellow looks with thin head but lots of lacing. Aroma has tropical fruits and berries with slight citrus notes. Taste has sweet tropical fruits, berries, citrus and some bitterness. Medium body with medium carbonation. A sweet tropical APA, decent brew. jerd16 (226) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2014
Pours golden with nice 2-finger head that gradually subsides. Good lacing. Nice and clear. Nice looking, resounding pale ale.
Heavily malty on the nose. Lots of caramel malt. Some herbal notes and a hint of tropical fruits. Perhaps the hop-character would be more pronounced if this was fresher (3 months old).
Initially sweet, juicy fruits. Some peach, orange. Burnt-caramel malt (a little toasty). Very fiery, punch bitter, crisp finish. Bitterness evolves and becomes a little soapy - which is unfortunate. Enjoyed it in spite of all of its character flaws. Bold beer.
