16 oz can, thanks Ryan. Lightly hazy amber-yellow; frothy white head; huge lacing. Aroma grapefruit, pineapple, musty florals, bread, pepper. Flavor is similar to aroma, and in addition there might be a hint of pine resin in here as well; finish is pretty dry. Mouthfeel is medium and closer to frothy than to fizzy. Glad that this is a well-regarded beer without being over-the-top bitter; it’s actually quite a lot better balanced and a lot less bitter than I’d expected. This is certainly no 99th percentile beer overall, but a top example in the style for sure.

Right after pour, I thought this was an IPA. Very hoppy! After it sat, that has mellowed out and is now very light and easy to drink. Inbreak (6132) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2017

Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is leafs, forest floor, rubber, pine needles, lawn, hops, soil, bark, grain. Taste is kind of strange mineraly, leafs, pine needles, soil, light malts, grain, paper, lawn, moss, citrus peel, hops. Longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Fair enough.
A nice Hoppy beer that seems to be confused between a Pale Ale & IPA. A nice hoppiness with confused palet.

Average beer, slight unpleasant after taste. Color and carbonation were fine. Would not purchase again.

Punch-in-the-nose bitterness for an APA, but I won’t complain too much because this has a big body, resinous aroma, and waves of bitiness that make it a great partner to cheeseburgers on the grill. "Stand up and fight!" I say to beers such as this. And they do.

The place we had it was dank but the beer was not to me. All in all a nice pale ale but tastes like Miller when I had it for a little longer.

Tap at the source during GLBTQ. 10oz pour. Lighter golden with a hint of orange. Lacing decent. White head. Nose is mostly pine with a little citrus soapy quality. Taste is mild with a hoppy pine characteristic. Bitterness takes over especially in the finish but not to its detriment. Overall feels straightforward but not disappointing.

Can. Good clean aroma but not at all strong or hoppy. Above average appearance, hazy orange with tiny white ring of head. Really nice flavor without becoming a hop bomb. Citrusy and refreshing. Good amount of carbonation. Great summer beer! randy1969 (47) - Marengo, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2017
