This is a pretty good APA. Moderate flavors of citrusy hops and caramel malts. Medium bodied, a little bitter. Overall better than expected!

Zilb (211) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - NOV 20, 2016
Cannette. Bière blonde très foncée, limite ambrée. Beau col de mousse à bonne tenue et très forte carbo. Arôme léger d’agrumes et de malt. Surpris car belle rondeur en bouche, et on sent l’alcool qui est pourtant de 5,5% ! Final sur le malt, l’alcool et une pointe d’agrume. Vraiment pas mal.

Iphonephan (6409) - McLean/Jackson Hole, Virginia, USA - NOV 8, 2016
From a 12 oz can. Pours a hazy copper with a thick off white head. Grassy nose. Flavors of tropical fruits and caramel. Pretty tasty.

Can, Lawson. Osaka, Japan. Pours medium orange amber with a medium white foam subsiding average slow. Scent is light almond and resin notes, clear peanut notes - almost peanut butter. And notes of macha. Taste is medium amber ale with flavors of vanilla and resin. Very interesting beer. Great.

colui72 (713) - HONG KONG - SEP 13, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2016 Clear golden with a small but lasting head. Aroma of sweet malts, fruit and caramel. Taste is malty, tending to sweet. Caramel and honey, some fruity hoppiness, dry finish. Not an amazing ale but fairly tasty.

JaKeAFC (1012) - ITALY - AUG 9, 2016
35 cl can. Light amber color, clear, nice stable offwhite head. Light smell of pale ale. Light malty aroma, a little caramelized, nice american style hopping, may be dry hopping, moderately biting. Taste is balanced, lightly bitter. A decent pale ale, above the average, refreshing.

SlovakSniper (5267) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2016
Robe cuivrée et mousse blanche crémeuse qui ne meurt jamais. Au nez, céréales qui ont un âge vénérable et houblons citronnés qui me semblent revivre. Au goût, voilà une pale ale américaine qui manque cruellement de punch ou qui a déjà touchée son chèque de pension. Ceci dit, bien buvable et sans aucun doute meilleur que d’autres trucs jeunes et fougueux.

thellgren (860) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 3, 2016
0.33 l can from 7-Eleven, Tokyo. Amber clear with nice head. Fruity and malty taste. Hops also, but more in the bittering way not the modern citrus like dry hopping. Reminds me Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Classic APA style. Pint draught @ The Aldgate, Shibuya, Tokyo (Real Ale version). Amber, clear, no head. At first malts and water - quite mild. Later on when it warms up it will get some bittering hops too. Not as much as in the can version, though.
