With the taste of American IPA but upon the backbone of Pale Ale, this dry and crisp ale celebrates its new found hop character in a very big way!

As the pour brings about a golden color with the signature "dry-hop" haze, the ale layers in the glass with a billowing cotton-white froth breaching the rim of the glass. Nearly Belgian-esque in its effervescence, the ale carries a lively demeanor into the first sip.

But first, its aroma is a live with all-things-citrus. Vivid notes of white grapefruit, tart orange peels, light pineapple, under-ripened mangoes and apricots all lend a complex and tangy fruit note that's much more IPA than that of pale. A supple backdrop of malt offers up a mild bread and honey medley but is largely relegated to a supporting role.

Then comes the taste- any of its light biscuit and honey malt sweetness is short-lived. As the citrus tones kick in, the malts only serve to give the fruit flavor a slightly "plumper" or "juicier" impression. But those citrus tones are tangy, tart and bursting with fruit juice flavors- giving them a fruit punch complexity. Finishing bitter and sherbet-like, its dry fruit taste winds up like dried citrus in lingering memory.

Its dry effervescence drives the ale from the tongue with ease as it ushers in a fleeting and hoppy-dry finish with mild alcohol warmth and bracing hop-derived acidity. Lightly lemony to close, glimpses of citrus remain as they echo in aftertaste.

Sloth is a sinful ale in that its hop character is so high and vibrant, yet its body so light and drinkable- irresistible not to just throw them back, beer after beer after beer after...

On-tap at Fermentoren in Copenhagen, served in a pint glass.

A- Pours a hazy apricot color with a finger of creamy off-white head, nice retention and lacing.

S- Fruity hop aroma, some citrus and tropical fruit, mild grassy bitterness.

T- Similar to the aroma with nice fruitiness, some mild grassy and piney bitterness, a bit of pale malt.

M- Medium-bodied, smooth feel, finishes a bit dry.

O- A nice pale ale, tasty and very easy to drink.

Pours gold with a fading head.
Nose shows apples, lychees, nectarine, fruit blossom and confectionery along with some wheat and biscuity malt.
Pretty hoppy, bitter flavours. Not much fruit except for some grapefruit notes. Some pine and spicy hops. Very low malt. Finishes dry with a very sharp bitterness.
Nice moderately high carbonation.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

The colour is deep yellow (6 EBC); some chill haze occurs. The two finger head is firm, uneven, off-white and compact. It leaves some lacing on the glass.

The small is hoppy, almost like an IPA: Fat citric flavours of grape fruits, lime juice and lemon peels. Some candy-like sweetness and a robust strong bitterness. Powerful and balanced, but perhaps a bit one-dimensional.

The taste is bitter with notes of lime, sweet white bread, grapefruit juice, lemon acid, ripe flowers and oily resin flavours. Medium body. The bitterness fades a bit in the aftertaste leaving room for fruity sweetness and quite a lot of alcohol. The finish got some banana notes, green hops and raw alcohol flavours.

The carbonation is medium strong, the small bubbles very sharp. The liquid is mid-smooth.

A bitter APA, a bit one-dimensional and too sharp carbonation. But not a bad beer.

500ml bottle purchased from Platinum Liquor in Bellevue Hill. Shared with Sam. This is a SMASH APA, mirroring the name by having the laziest possible recipe.

Pours a pleasant bright yellow colour, with a fair amount of haze. Head forms a solid crown of white, that settles to a small island of mounded bubbles in the centre of the glass. Lacing is minimal, but tight where it forms. Body is light and pleasant. Looks pretty decent.

Initial aroma is a little cereally, perhaps with a bit of DMS. When swirled the hops come out a little more, but so does that vegetative, sweet DMS character as well. Yep, it's definitely there. Indeed, the hops seem to vainly be masking the corn character, and the cereal grain undertones. What flavours it has are nice: some stone fruit, sweet citrus and a suggestion of passionfruit, but it's got some flaws as well.

Taste is a little better, clearer, cleaner and with a pleasant pronounced bitterness through the centre of the palate. Malt is very light, but doesn't plumb those cereal depths, so it stays pleasant enough. Some of the stone fruit characters come through around the edges, along with a hint of honeydew melon. It's quite pleasant.

Feel is fine: pretty light but clean enough.

Overall, it's not particularly exciting. But it's also drinkable, decent and relatively inoffensive. As part of a special range it's a bit disappointing, but as a beer in its own right, it's pretty good.

Bottle: Poured a cloudy dirty beige color ale with a large white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of deep floral hops with nice green and herbal touch is really powerful and quite enticing. Taste is dominated by wonderful notes of herbal and dry hops notes with some light dry caramel malt to sustain the hops profile. Body is quite full with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. The hops punch is this one is quite exquisite with minimal bitterness and loads of floral notes approaching the Heady Topper level. Great stuff and hopefully not a one-off.
