look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Decent head with a good duration. Hazy orange color, APA like.
Delicious predominant aroma of passion fruit. Good carbonation and light body resulting in a refreshing beer with good drinkability (so not ok, that they bottled that at only 310ml!).
In its flavor, also delivers an intense citric and passion fruit flavor balanced with an elegant malt sweetness, it has a pleasant bitterness with a good duration that ends with a dry finish.
Very good beer, quite faithful to its APA style in all senses.

3.58/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Light bright clear orange with a nice white creamy foam, with a good retention.
S: Smell is of citruses, spicy, yeasty, with a massive malt backbone (grain, bread)
T: Taste is quite similar to the nose, with toasted bread, caramel malts and brown sugar. The hops arrive at the end leaving quite a long bitterness on the palate.
M: Light to medium bodied. Refreshing.
O: A good pale ale, tasty, but overall, I would have expected more fruit hops in there.

Cascade, Citra, and Amarillo. Those are the hop varieties used in this one of a kind pale ale produced in Brazil. On-tap at Hop'n Roll, on to the beer:

Lighter orange colored with brillinat yellow hues mixed in. The head retention is good quality, and the same can be said for the lace. You smell that? No, you can't. It's a delicious blend of tangerine, orange, citurs, and tropical fruits. Yum!

Fruit juice is popular in Brazil, but there's no reason to think this can't be a substitute. Way APA is well structured; enough of a malt canvas providing some toffee and caramel, but not too much that it covers up the delicate and succulent hop flavors. Say hello to orange, pine, and passionfruit. No bitterness here, just a little hop juice. It is very smooth in the mouth, medium bodied, and very easy to drink.

I knew Way APA would be a treat, but I didn't expect it to be this tasty! If you have access to this beer, buy it without thinking about it! I'm starting to think I like these guys more than I like Bodebrown, but...

(update 3/20/12: just tried a bottled version of it, and the bottled version seems like a totally different <and inferior> animal than the draft version reviewed here. You have been warned.)
