3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I like the mild better than Alpha King and, as that seems to go much agaianst the wisdom of the rest of you, I'll explain. Both beers have strong hop fronts but the harder grapefruit surge of this one compares unfavorable to the sweeter lemongrass of the mild - so I guess it's probably the hop varieties I'm reacting too. Both beers have a good malt backing and this one is toasty - interesting!
Pours reddish orange gold with a small but long lasting white head. Aroma is sweet orange citrus hops. Taste follows with a rich grain malt backbone. Notable sweetness and citrus hops that leave a medium bitterness. Quite excellent.

A cool label, though I don't think the beer itself was as impressive to me. oberschlesier (235) - Kattowitz, UPPER SILESIA, - NOV 21, 2017
Zapach biszkoptowo-karmelowy, herbaciany, lekko przyprawowy, nawet nieco kwiatowy, przyjemny i zbalansowany, ale nie jest to intensywna chmielowa bomba, która powala soczystością i intensywnością. Jest grzecznie. Smak lekko karmelowy i kwiatowy, goryczka w posmaku, przez chwilę zalega, średnia do wysokiej jak na APA. Piwo ma kolor podchodzący pod bladą czerwień, nie jest zbyt mętne. Piana ładna, lacing, utrzymuje się. Wysycenie w sam raz. za niskie nie jest. Solidny klasyk, ale bez fajerwerków. vandc01 (460) - North Branch, USA - NOV 2, 2017

Very tasty randy1969 (137) - Marengo, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2017 Aromas of caramel, bready malt and floral hops. An amber color in a slightly hazy liquid. with an off-white head. The taste is glorious: a solid base of caramel malt and some subtle sweet fruit. Feels medium bodied, creamy texture with moderate, pleasant carbonation. Overall a real nice balanced pale ale.

And tap dark gold pour frothy white head Aroma and taste of grass sweet malts and a bitter Pine finish commonmac (1381) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2017
12oz bottle picked up at the brewery shared by Highendtully. Color is copper/amber with a good quality off white head. Nose is a combination of pine and bready characteristics including a slight brown butter element. Taste starts out with heavy citrus (tangerine, pineapple) before getting out of the way of the malts. Finish is a crazy amount of caramel (like a creme brulee dessert feel) that lingers well into the night. Finish also seems to incorporate an over-ripened fruit quality. Very good balance. Hard to find fault with this one. DavyK (170) - East Kilbride, SCOTLAND - SEP 15, 2017
Bottle from Binny's, Lincoln Park. It's how to do an APA: gorgeous deep orange colour and chewy, almost tangerine-like citrus comes though. Fantastic. MrBeerFanatic (1076) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 11, 2017
