You have to remember this is a pretty low gravity beer. With that in mind it has a nice aroma and pretty balanced brew. With gravity not in mind its not that special a beer. But with the low ABV its pretty impressive. Dedollewaitor (16055) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 9, 2013
Bottle @ Das Meisterstuck, Berlin. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Grapefruit, citrus and bready malts. Smooth, dry and balanced. Nice. Grzesiek79 (4276) - Radom, POLAND - APR 4, 2013
Bardzo dobre piwo, znakomicie pachnace 4 chmielami (Fuggle, Cascade, Centennial, Chinook), Takze kilka slodow do tego lekko zamglone, piana srednia, i srednio utrzymuje sie na powierzchni, ale jest drobnoziarnista i mocno przywiera do szklanicy i tworzy koronki, wspanialy nad nia jest ten aromat chmielny. APA mistrzowskie, do tego znakowana butelka z numeren seryjnym i rozlewem Armitage (9) - - APR 2, 2013 does not count
In one word, pleasant. Crisp palate and inoffensive floral aroma. Just enough hops to remind you this is a serious beer.

02-APR-2013, bottle @hotel room in Berlin, from Getranke Hoffmann.
Clear golden with almost white head.
Aroma is grape fruit, pine, ginger(!), and some spice. Taste same. Even the ginger!
Medium carbonation but a thin body makes the bubbles stand out a bit too lively.
Fine little refreshing APA.

I’ve had this beer many times, both on tap and in the bottle. It has never tasted the same each time. Fortunately, this time (out of the tap), it suited my taste better than any other. It pours a beautiful golden color with a distinct citrus bouquet. No head at all, but this is likely the bar tender’s choice in the way she poured to fit as much beer in the pint as possible. An easily discernible citrus up front with an alternating citrus and less present pine at the finish. A well-balanced grain and hop concoction. An excellent example of a pale ale. A competitor for Sierra Nevada as a go to, quintessential American pale ale. vyvvy (6392) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Sampled at 4 Hand’s Lupulin Fest 2013 - A nice surprise to see this one since it’s not available in bottles around here. Pours clear golden with a white head. The aroma is very clean with fairly dry maltiness, a bit of fruit and spicy hops. It has a fairly light body that’s very crisp and has light sharp carbonation. The taste is very clean with dryish malt, bits of dough and spicy hoppiness. The adds a bit of grassiness. Quite nice and very refreshing. Hope this comes to MO as more of a regular offering. iammatt (13) - California, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Pours a clear gold with a white head that lingers with plenty of lace. Smell is pine and hay. Nice citrusy hop bite that quickly smooths out leaving behind fruit and a touch of malty sweetness. A favorite of mine, perfect session APA @ 4.9% jmikolich (1477) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - MAR 26, 2013

Strong fruity aroma with a clear gold color and small head. Strong citrusy taste. I am not usually a fan of this style but I thought this was pretty good.
