bbertels (431) - NORWAY - NOV 19, 2016
Backlog. Draught at Druggists beer bar, Singapore. Cloudy golden, off-white head. Citra and tropical fruit in the aroma. Nice balance between hoppy variety and ripe, tropical fruit. Medium-bodied. A very good APA.

visionthing (4951) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 7, 2016
33cl bottle from Midori, Nagano. Pours slightly hazy golden with a modest pale white head.Fruity aroma dominated by citrus with notes of tropical fruits and hints of malt and grass. Moderate sweet with lovely, fresh hoppy flavours and a nice bitterness. Medium body with carbonation slightly on the soft side. Nice APA!

Dredd (844) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2016
Pour is a very cloudy amber orange with thin white head. Aroma is mainly tropical fruit. Similar tropical fruit flavour profile with a pine hop finish. Nothing bad, but nothing memorable either.

Draught at 23 Keg Nagoya in 2014, This was the best Pale Ale I tried after searching out many craft beers in Nagoya, Nagano, Osaka and Kyoto

thepatrickman (1067) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 13, 2015
On draft at When Pigs Fly in Maine. Straightforward, old school pale ale from Japan. The hop flavor is on the lighter side, playing more of a supporting role, and the malt is fresh abd light. Refreshing and very drinkable.

jc1762 (1055) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Poured into a taster showing cloudy yellow, moderate filtration, and barely any foam. The nose shows roasted corn and hints of roasted seafood. (Is this bottle off) The palate is moderately carbonated and light bodied. A bit of extremely light and barely perceivable lager-like malts on the palate. Barely any flavor and very watery. Is my bottle off?

mrjez (538) - Osaka, JAPAN - OCT 27, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2017 Pours a slightly hazy gold, the final bit clouded it up with sediment, low white head. The aroma is lovely, bright and tropical, tonnes of grapefruit, pear, a little herb touch, grassy. Tastes good too, the hops bring a lively taste, grapefruit, pine, pineapple, just a touch watery in the back half. The feel is light and spritzy, it goes down smoothly, a dry refreshing finish. A lot like a session IPA but some lingering malt pushing it to APA territory.

solidfunk (8058) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Some citrus and a little hay, but a light beer all in all. Soft carbonation. Light bitter finish. Hazy golden pour. Easy drinking. Tap at Churchkey.
