Color naranja, turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación suave. Textura oleosa. Aroma húmedo, a pomelo, naranja, pino, malta caramelizada. En boca hay mucho pomelo y pino, naranja, menos malta que en nariz pero perceptible. Final de amargor resinoso medio y duradero. Típica APA que parece IPA pero no por ello menos rica. rayaron (1886) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - JUL 22, 2017

On tap at Minneapolis airport. Pours a slightly hazy golden/orange with moderate white head that leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is as I expected, with citrus, pine, and some earthiness. Taste is bitter but not outrageously so. Body is medium with average carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. DSG (14922) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 4, 2017

Nice hoppy pale. Tall can. Clear orange with thin white head. Aroma and flavor are orange peel/grapefruit, spicy hops and a touch of floral hops. Pretty well balanced with sweetish earthy caramel malt. Moderate bitterness. balloonbuffoon (392) - - APR 21, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2017 Draft in a chalice glass. Light copper in color, resin and citrus fruit aroma. Palate is medium in body and is abrasive. This is not a balanced APA. More like an American IPA, and a mediocre one if considered as such. This beer is not for me. Edited comments, not an actual review update. Ratman197 (14974) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 3, 2017
