4.26/5  rDev +9.2%

16.6 oz bottle. June 2013 batch.
Poured into a SA fluted glass.
Pours a cloudy golden amber color with a medium-sized fluffy off white head.
The smells are surprisingly varied for a single hop. Fresh cut hay, citrus, wild flowers, fruit cup, bread dough with a light whiff of gin all roll together.
Flavors are hop forward with tastes of soft citrus, peppery spice and a hint of pineapple. The sweet malt backbone holds together throughout. As in the aroma, a light taste of gin sneaks in the finish.
This is a very well-rounded brew. The slick, silky liquid is really easy to gulp...almost too easy.

Appearance:
The beer pours a light amount of head. The beer itself is a clear and golden amber.

Smell:
Very aromatic and floral. The sweet pale malts mix very well with the aroma.

Taste:
Very floral to the point where it is almost too much and dominate the pallet. I can get some sweet malts but barely.

Mouthfeel:
Medium bodied with almost no carbonation.

Overall:
A pretty decent beer and worth getting at least once.

Translucent golden rod color. Swarthy white head wraps a few foamy rings around my USMC glass. Earthy moss and tobacco citrus hop aroma with light, bready malt underneath. Tastes like damp earthy citrus. Sharp bitter but not too much. Sweet malty backbone. Hops settle into damp tangerine.

Good. I'm not familiar with Styrian Aurora but I like the damp, earthy citrus I get from them.

4.04/5  rDev +3.6%

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a very light gold color, with a short foamy white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains floral hops, fruity citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out a strong burst of grassy hops bitterness. Then some fruity citrus sweetness quickly follows. The malt character is a bit on the thin side for the style but it works well for this particular beer and provides a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a very nice lighter but still very flavorful APA to drink for a long time.

Moderate head that dissipates slowly and in a rocky fashion. Some line lace, but it sticks around. The liquid has a green to hue to the otherwise cloudy, light-gold color.

Fresh, clean pale malt aroma with a good punch to the lightly grapefruit-ish hop.

Soft, lightly sweet malt start. The hop kicks in strongly, giving this beer exceptional balance without either flavor getting lost. Full body with an average carbonation level. The finish has a straight bitterness. The aftertaste lasts a long time and adds a bit of alcoholic warmth to the tongue. This is a very easy-to-drink beer.

Poured into a tulip glass from a 22 oz bottle.

A: Nice hazy orange with good head, retention, and lacing.

S: Pleasant citrusy and grassy hop aroma.

T: Moderate malt flavor balanced against the hop bitterness along with a presence of alcohol. The bitterness lingers in the back of the mouth.

Overall: A very decent pale ale with a nice unique aroma and flavor. A pleasing ale.

Straw yellow and hazy with a bright white, fine soapy cap. Good head retention with clumpy lacing. Lemony and earthy aroma, spicy hops, herbal and fruity, with mild malt and grain notes. Balanced flavour, mild malt up front with delicate lemon/herbal hops, followed by solid bitterness and mild hop spice. Slight caramel and lemon in the finish. Soft carbonation, medium bodied, good texture. I quite enjoyed this beer.

A-Pours a murky yellow. Thinner white layer of fluffed head. Light lacing.

S-Interesting nose. The Syrian Aurora hops lend a sweetened hoppiness. A bit pineappley and also a bit like a pina colada. Crackery malt.

T-I wish the flavors were stronger but its still quite appealing. Still getting that unique pineapple, sweet honeyed hoppiness, pins colada or even vanilla with a grassy finish. Pleasant malty flavors of biscuit and cracker.

M-Drinks great. Not very bitter. Lingering fruity finish.

O/D-Reminds me of their 5th Anniversary DIPA. I absolutely .loved that brew...so unique. I wouldn't be surprised if there was a dose of Syrian Aurora in that beer too. I recommend this one.
