2.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cl bottle @ home. Pours a dark amber colour with semi dense head. aromas are very flat and no real noteso f anything.. maybe floral? the taste is a bit bitter, but no real hoppy feel. it is kinda boring. small notes of malts.. all in all, i don’t really like it, maybe my bottle was bad, but as that one bottle goes, it was just plain..

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
0,5 l. bottle from a supermarket. Slightly hazy golden, amber with a medium sized creamy, off-white head. Powerful aroma with pines, grasses, light grapefruits and chocolate malts with a caramel note. Medium bitterness, very nice. Medium body, with a slick texture. soft carbonated. Long, lingering bitterness. Very American styled, not much " Fanø" here... Very good APA, my kind of refreshment...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Ma che siete venuti a fa’ (Rome, Italy) and Karhisma Birroteca (Piedimonte Matese - Caserta, Italy). A pale intense orange with a generous creamy head that leaves levels on glass sip after sip and lasts long. Aroma is resinous, undoubtly yeasty (bread) and a good fruit mix in the end like citrus, orange, grapefruit, ananas or generally tropical. Something fresh and herbaceous too. Body is medium, as carbonation, good malt presence and balance; drinkability satisfies for sure, and finish grows and grows slowly, leaves the back part of tongue fizzy and seriously harsh. Persistent. This version is more hoppier than the previous and I prefer it, since its character gives a great session soul, but it’s more an IPA than APA. A very good example of the style, so different from the common european ones.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle at Det Lille Apotek. White foamy head reduced to a thin layer with a few patches. Clouded, late straw coloured body. Fresh smell of sappy fruits. Succulent flavour character of fresh fruity hops including oranges, joined by grapes and a touch of spices. Plain dry bitter finish. Perfect with my salty, fried bacon (Copenhagen, 02.11.2011).
