3.82/5  rDev +15.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours amber with a large light tan creamy head that dissipates slowly leaving decent lacings.

S: Balanced american hops - not to piney but rich citric, perhaps some grapefruits and pineapples. Some caramell malt in the back.

T: More malt in the taste, sweet and kind of bready. Fruity, mostly citrus - grapefruit and some oranges. There's also faint piney notes.

M: Medium carbonation as well as body. Aftertaste lingers and holds both bitterness and sweetness.

D: A kind of nice APA, not the best I've ever had but surely not the worst either.

I think that the canned version of this beer is brewed by the Danish macro brewery Harboe, but I'm not 100% sure.

The colour is pale amber; the liquid is clear. The three finger head is airy and off-white. Some lacing occurs.

The smell is fresh, bitter and hoppy with some notes of apricots, pineapples and a hint of tobacco.

The taste is a bit unbalanced. Low body, bitter-sour flavours of lime and a smoked hint. The aftertaste is bitter with rough notes of tobacco, grapefruits, French loaf and apple acid.

The carbonation is medium strong, the liquid is mid-smooth.

An unbalanced ale with tart off-flavours.

Had this bottle lying around for awhile so after much considering decided to try it.

A: Redbrown with a thin, creamy lace.

S: Hops, raspberry, fruit.

T: Hops a plenty, bread, citric notes, exotic fruit and ends with a nice touch of malt. Very nice.

M: Medium carbonation with small bubbles. An easy drink provided you like hops :)

One of the best pale ales i've had in a while. One bottle was enough tho.
If you can get your hands on it, check it out!
