Sampeled with Rune&Stefan at Rating Session 25.Oct.2012.
Hazy golden body, with big, white and rocky head. Hops as well as peach, tangerine and flower notes in the aroma, Wow! Dry hops with notes of flowers, tangerines, grapefruit and nuts. Very promising from Mack Microbrewery. Thanks for sharing Rune! TorkDaDork (7) - NORWAY - DEC 21, 2012 does not count
Not what i would call an IPA. Too sweet and little hop taste. Nevertheless a very nice beer! Fruit and caramel taste. The beer is clody and felt a little too young. But there was something with it that i enjoyed alot. Good going Mack! harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle drunk at home thanks to Rune and Finn. Delivered in red tissue paper. A hazy cloudy dirty gold colour with a thick beige head. One of the thickest sediments I’ve seen in a beer in a bottle. Slightly over carbonated so needed a bit of a swirl to get rid of the excess carbonation. Aroma is yeast and citrus hops. Yep it’s a decent APA, I like the hops and the bitterness and the character added from the yeast. Best Mack beer I’ve had by far. Hope they keep making beers like this. Yes very good APA, very likeable, very drinkable and lots of character. Tangerine, satsuma fruit flavours. Good OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 26, 2012
0.33 bottle enjoyed at home. Thanks Rune, for the treat. Pours a hazed straw pale yellow, under a coarse fluffy dirty-white head. Nice smell of perfumed, tangerine-scented hops. Hint of light honeyed malts. Quite juicy in the mouth, considering the low abv. Taste is hop driven. Fruity-bitter with a note of resin and pine-needle. Lightly sweet and toasted, medium full malt body. Finishes with a nice fruity hop bite. A true all-nighter. Nice! KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 20, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Rune. Glowing gold.
Fruity, pears and peaches. The yeast belnd adds some sting and both lemon and banana flavour. A pleasant tipple.

Bottle courtesy of Rune (cheers man!), shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew. Pours a hazy straw-hued orange body with loads of floaties and a medium white head. Aroma is peaches, caramel, grass, hints of yeast and pine. Mellow, but nice. Taste is mild floral peachy tones with hints of grass and nutmeg. Faint soapy traces in the finish. Relatively full-bodied for the low ABV, and a mellow and nice session beer with quite a bit of taste, too. Not bad. Fin (10542) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2012

A freshly citrussmell comes to me at once. the foam is refreshingly white, but falls apart sooner than later. Beautiful dark, orange color. Mild, bitter and light sweetness. salty feeling. saxo (18416) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2013
