LED40 (112) - Aberdeen, - SEP 5, 2012
350ml bottle. A refreshing beer which is easy to drink, it has notes of floral hops, tropical fruits and slight caramel. This would put many ipas to shame with its hop profile which leaves a lingering pleasant taste in the mouth. Overall, its worth the hype and something to enjoy again.

the aroma is fruity and hoppy with hints of orange, pine, grapefruit, resin and spicy herbs... the taste is well-balanced, fruity and malty, with notes of swet orange, pine needles, grapefruit, key lime, resin and spicy grasses... the aftertaste is bitter and dry...

Marstonlad (832) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2017
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours cloudy golden with a medium-sized, dense and frothy head. The aroma displays solid citrusy and floral hoppiness with pale, grainy maltiness in the background. Taste is built on a combination of pale maltiness and solid citrusy hoppiness; fresh, crisp citrus fruitiness rises to the fore. Bitterness is about medium, strong enough also for hopheads but weak enough to be drinkable for everyone. The palate is light to medium bodied, smooth, average in carbonation. Benchmark for all APAs.

Im impressed. Ill be honest, I was expecting it to be great, but the balance between Hops and malt make it so pleasant. Its awesome.

avena319 (17) - Colorado, USA - MAR 19, 2017
Pours a golden color with a nice head. Aroma of slight malt with hoppy overtones. A nice crisp taste with the perfect hop complement for an American pale ale. I have enjoyed this beer for many years and keep returning to it. This is the finest American pale ale I have ever had. I just wish the clone I brew tasted as good.
