COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Spawned by freewheeling, Californian hopheads, American Pale Ale is the red-headed stepchild of the classic IPA. Big and extroverted with plenty of bitterness, a great APA shows off some fruit on the nose and the kind of earthy, herbaceous complexity Pinot Noir buffs drone on about when they corner you at a fundraiser. Anyway, we had a thumb through the Tuatara atlas and discovered that us Kiwis are New World too. So we reckon its time a New Zealand APA pulled on its dockers, flashed its Backberry and generally talked louder than anyone else in the bar. Here it is!

tombutlin (259) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 5, 2015
Spruce and citrus hops to keep a hop head happy, but not too much to scare off my novice drinking buddy. Rich red colour and a body that looks good in its underwear

BB 21/10/2015. Poured a clear dark amber colour with 5mm of off-white bubbles for a head that diminished to a collar that laced OK. Carbonation low and fine. Aroma softly of semi-sweet fruit.

Vignale (3505) - Malm, SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2015
Flaska frn SB som ser ut som en drakhals med en kapsyl i form att ett drakga. Orsakade slagsml bland barnen :-). Brnstensfrgad, klar relativt lgt skum som dock lmnar en hel del rester. Trevlig fruktig doft, tropisk frukt, citrus, tallskott, mango, kolakakor. Smaken r lite jordigare med en rejl smst smak av kaksmulor, kolaremmar, rtig och jordig humle med frukten i bakgrunden. Medelstor beska. Har verlevt resen ngorlunda ven om jag hade nskat att humlen var piggare. Gott
