Bottle. Pours a light copper-gold, with a small white head that disappears pretty quickly. Nose is hoppy, citrus and a bit of pine, some sweet caramel malt peeks through. Taste is a base of pale malt, dry, underneath a layer of nice, crisp pine hops that hint of citrus. Finish is clean, crisp, and dry, with a light lingering bitterness. Crisp carbonation and a light body. Fantastic, drinkably delicious beer.

On tap @ Mimis. Nice amber pour with 2 fingers of tan head. Pine nose. Was a bit under impressed with the thin palate. Some caramel malt and grassy hops up front. Better than an average macro.

bottle into shaker. Great balance between earthy and light piney hops and a good cereal malt base. Very drinkable, nice smooth mouthfeel. Good stuff.

twindadplus2 (743) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 17, 2008
Slightly hazy golden brown with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt and floral hops. Flavor is caramel malt and light floral and fruity hops. Medium bodied with a smooth creamy palate and a light herbal bitterness in the finish. Not as powerfully bitter as a lot of APAs but a well balanced and easy drinking beer.

3.3
Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2008
It is warm golden with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of fruit, caramel and light citrus. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of fruity hops, melon, papaya, malt, caramel and light rubber. It is pleasant and easy to drink and it has a slightly dry, light bitterness in the finish.

3.5
merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - DEC 14, 2008
A very good standby APA. Nice looker in the glass with clear amber body and nice offwhite lacing. Very balanced, with caramel malt working well with bitter earthy hops and fruity esters.

3.3
BigSkyman007 (202) - USA - DEC 11, 2008
Beer poured a rich surprising copper color, similar to a Yuengling Lager draft. Light foamy head. Flavor mildly hoppy with a sweetness which was hard to put a finger on. Finish mildly hoppy and dry. Lageresque, but drier and sweeter.

3.3
MiP (16054) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 10, 2008
Bottle. Sweet aroma, weakly caramelly. Slightly hazy amber colour. Very small white head. The flavour is OK caramelly with a little sweetness and spicy hoppiness.

3.4
Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2008
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. Pours a clear deep golden with a small of-white head. Classic American aroma hops in the nose - some citrus accents there. Medium body, some caramel and some perfumy hop accents. Lightly bitter finish. 281108

3.2
Ungstrup (38932) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2008
Bottled. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of fruit and atoush of alcohol. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of fruit and a ligjt touch of caramel, leading to a bitter finish. A bit boring.
