500ml bottle purchased from Slowbeer and poured into a Victory Golden Monkey tulip.
Vicious gusher, lost a third, if not half of the bottle on the kitchen bench and floor. Not a lot of fun mopping up! Eventually pours with half foam, half liquid. The liquid being a golden orange colour with white foam that despite the amount, failed to grip the glass in the 5 minutes before it almost completely dissolved. Some small sediment floating consistently throughout.
Smells kind of like green apples mixed with a floral fruity hoppiness. Different, not good, am starting to think this is infected, given the over carbonation and apple like smell.
Taste is more of the same, fruity (think summer, exotic fruits) hops are there with some green apple in the background.
Mouthfeel has some pucker at the end, a little oily early and prickly in the middle.
Disappointing, hopefully it was just a bad bottle.

A: cloudy amber, nothing out of ordinary
S: passionfruit, malt, not much floral or hops going on
T: disappointing opening - a bit of a muddled taste, not bad but hard to separate tastes, there is some stonefruit/passionfruit ever so slightly, finishes with a fairly potent bitterness
M: didn't particularly like the frothiness at the initial stages when swallowed, but gets better once settles - flattens quickly
Reminds me of Discovery Pale Ale - it is well worth drinking but the taste doesn't hit me as anything extraordinary, could have used a bit more hops in the aroma

Slightly hazy golden colour that suggests dryhopping. Small but dense and long lasting white head.
Thick and fruity hop aroma with great grapefruit, passionfruit and mandarin notes. Really lovely.
Good light malt with some sharp hop character. This is good but there are also some chlorophenols going on which reduce the enjoyability here.
Medium-light body with moderately-high carbonation. A little too fizzy.
A full flavoured APA but some technical flaws take it from great to merely decent.
