3.28/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Hazy golden colour with a small white head. Some lacing.

Mild malt aroma with a touch of citrussy hops. The hops could be more powerful but the bigger issue is a touch of chlorophenol.

Like the aroma there is some malt with some caramel notes. Moderate bitterness. Citrus and mild chlorophenol.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Fine.

A solid APA which could be quite good but the mild chlorophenol lets it down as the flavour is a touch off.

Not much info around on this beer. Not sure exactly what they were going for with this beer but I think to just call it an APA is a little too simple. A very cloudy honeyed orange with a smallish head.

After a while the nose opens up with very much herbal and lemony hop aromas but not much malt. Carbonation is quite high and a little prickly but it suits the flavour profile with is again quite lemon driven. Bitterness is quite upfront too. Slightly tart finish.

If you came to this beer looking for a traditional APA you would no doubt be disappointed but on some level I quite enjoyed this beer for what it is.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours cloudy dark amber with a small off-white head.
Nose shows some floral and light fruity hops. Some clean malt underneath. Faint lemon shows later. Pretty light on.
Even less hops in the way of flavours, although there is an aggressive bitterness. Hardly any malt shows. Big metallic character in the finish.
Carbonation could be a bit higher. Body feels pretty watery.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

This brew pours a dark hay,light orange zest hue with average carbonation that leaves behind an one finger head and sporadic lacing,the smell is not what i expected with hints of salami,pepperoni,avacados and citrusy hops,the mouthfeel is light bodied and has tastes of paw paw,orange zest,light peach and finishes with a herbal,citrus hoppy bitterness that's just bitter enough to make this brew quite smooth compared to other APA's and overall its alright without being very memorable.

A - Hazy orange with a 2cm white head that hangs around for a bit.
S - Citrusy and floral hop aromas with some nice slightly sweet bready maltiness.
T - Much like the smell; citrus fruit and floral hops up front followed by some toasted bread malt flavour.
M - Medium bodied, low to medium carbonation. Noticeable bitterness.
O - A very nice, hoppy yet well balanced APA.
