First New Holland. Tons of head out of bottle. One can never have too much head. Head is lasting a very long time. Which can be a good thing. Very smooth and hoppy, malty lemony flavor. Very good beer, terrific with my pizza. As I said Tons of head is a very very good thing:) omhper (24987) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2004
Bottled. Hazy amber, average head. Grapefruit aroma. Surprisingly soft and very hoppy - loads of Cascade here. Dryish and very drinkable with lasting intensely bitter finish. One-dimensional (which can be said about all beers in the style), but tasty and thirst quenching. rickgordon (3874) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2004
Bottled, Stockholm Beer Festival.
Hazy golden. Rich, flowery hoparoma. A bit sweetish in flavour with notes of lemon and orange. Chewy. Nice balance of rich malt and hops. Full bodied and wonderful. TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - AUG 30, 2005
Pours a medium amber with a huge white head (not sure if the bottle was shook up a bit on this one or not). Aroma of floral hops and citrus. This was a very nice APA. One of the best I’ve had. Great taste and nicely balanced malts and a dry hop finish. DrnkMcDermott (3097) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2005
Bottled. Light brown pour under a thick bumpy head. Has a pleasing APA smell, malty and a tad hoppy, with no off smells in this 4+ month old bottle. Dandy hoppy taste, with pine and pineapple at work on top of a toasty malt base. A nice peppery burn going down sums up to make this a fine drinking experience. I may be over-rating this beer, but frankly I can’t see why not.

I was pleasantly surprised with this one! Foggy tan color with a thick head, lots of lace and a nice sweet hoppy aroma. Mildly sweet and hoppy with a pleasant bitter mouthfeel. Not too bitter, blended very well with the rest of the flavor. Finish is hoppy, slightly bitter and dry. A great Pale Ale! superspak (5517) - Michigan, USA - MAR 31, 2013
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 2/15/2013. Pours moderately cloudy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with plenty of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of orange zest, grapefruit, peach, lemon zest, floral, light pine, caramel, biscuit, and light nuttiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of hop and malt notes. Taste of orange zest, grapefruit, pine, lemon zest, floral, caramel, biscuit, light nuttiness, and floral earthiness. Moderate pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, pine, floral, caramel, biscuit, and floral earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nice complexity of hop and malt flavor; with a great hop/malt flavor balance; and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, crisp, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice pale ale. Nice hop/malt balance and complexity; very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering. deusax (459) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JAN 24, 2014
Bottle @JustBeer. Aroma of light hops. Color is amber, with a thin head. Taste of earthy hops, with a strong bitterness. Nice round mouth, with light fuzz. A very nice APA overall jsmerig (1578) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Pours a hazy golden brown with a whit foamy head. Aroma of orange and citrus fruit. Taste starts slightly caramel then dries up with a bitter offset. It never gets truly bitter. It remains balanced throughout. Very smooth with a clean finish.

Great aroma. Great taste, hoppy and dry. Appearance is fair, good lacing. Palate is medium bodied. Overall, a very drinkable pale ale.
