4.23/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a hazy orange, with soft, quickly falling foam.

Smell is a tropical juice bomb, loads of mango and pineapple.

Taste is as juicy as the smell, tastes like carbonated multi vitamin juice. Hop bite is fairly mild and balanced. Very refreshing!

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a terrific APA, easy to drink, but quite a few layers of flavor.

From a pint can, it delivers a pungent juicy pale ale. Big fruity andfloral character. This hazy apa is a bit out of balance with some sweetness and some funkiness. I've had better from stigberget.

500ml can poured into a snifter.

Hazy deep yellow color, it tops with pretty thick foamy white head that quickly dissipates to some bubble sheet on the surface and leaves mild lacing on the glass-side.

Of course, fruity and juicy aroma led by lemon, tropical, grapefruit, orange peel, and passion fruit, then comes melon, pine, resin, grass, and some spice. Malt is hidden underneath all those fruits and juices with some breadiness.

Fruity and juicy hop in the lead with loads of tropical, lemon, grapefruit, orange peel, and passion fruit from the used of Citra and Chinook as well as pine, resin, grass, some spice, and some bitter kick. Yes, it has real bitterness. Malt plays behind with its breadiness letting the hop characters to outplay.

Rather light body with quite smooth mouthfeel and quite lively carbonation, the feeling is crisp and refreshing with a typically dry finish.

Standard NE Pale Ale, it is fresh, fruity, and juicy as it should be but nothing outstanding or groundbreaking.

From Zombier. In Teku glass. Watching House of Cards 2x05-06. From Carrefour. In Teku glass. Playing Tales Across Time. Decent pilsner. Nicely malty smell, a bit less in taste but providing a decent and refreshing experience

Poured to an oversized wine glass.

A: The body is incredible. A completely opaque, very hazy orange body with a minimal white head. The density of the body and its color is just amazing.
S: The aroma is specially hoppy, citrusy and malts still found a way to shine through on this Zipper. Very nice aroma for an APA although I was expecting it to be more fruity and less hoppy.
T: The taste begins with a tangerine like citrusy profile, growing to a more grassy tone until it reaches the hoppiness in the end of the sip. Very well balanced and still very simple.
M: The body is medium high. Carbonation is perfect. Alcohol is unnoticed. Bitterness is medium.
O: This is the first thing I've ever drank that was conceptualized by Stigbergets and friends, Lervig in this case. This beer is very nice, it has a nice drinkability for an (NE?) APA.

The liquid is opaque, the colour orange-yellow. The finger thick head sinks slowly down into a thin lid. No lacing.

The smell got strong fruity, somewhat tart, notes of peaches, apricots, lemons, mango and lemon acid. It is very juicy.

Citric hops in the thin taste. Mangos, papayas, tangerines and grapefruits. Somewhat chemical notes of malic acid. Light to medium body. The aftertaste is lighter with exotic fruit juice and elderflowers. Lemons in the tart finish.

The carbonation is light, almost flat. The small bubbles are long-lived. The liquid is smooth.

I think this one is too weak in several ways. Great hops, though.
