Pours a hazy amber colour. Smells like light malts, grapefruit, with faint floral hops. Tastes mostly bitter with grapefruit, crisp, clean, and the bitterness lingers.

Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is a bit weird, metallic and dank. Taste is better, caramel malt and a lot of walnuts on the finish. Body and carbonation are medium. Taste is quite good but the aroma is a letdown.

A: Pours a crystal clear medium amber in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and faint golden yellow highlights. The beer has a four finger tall dense foamy beige head that reduces to a medium to large sized two finger tall cap in the center surrounded by a thick film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of toasted, bready, and caramel malts with a light amount of sweetness. There are also light to moderate aromas of citrus/orange, pine, and grassy hops.

T: Upfront there are slightly stronger than moderate flavors of toasted, bready, and caramel malts with a light amount of sweetness. There is a light yeastiness towards the middle that lingers into the finish. That is followed by light to moderate flavors of citrus/orange, pine, and grassy hops which impart a light to moderate amount of assertive bitterness which slowly fades away.

M: Medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of lively carbonation.

O: Interesting hybrid Amber + APA with decent flavors and aromas of toasted malts and hops. Easy to drink and enjoyable, probably would be even better if it was super fresh but I have no way of knowing how much age this one had (I felt obligated to grab this one since I had never seen anything from the brewery).

From elcervecero. In Ikea's pint glass. After dinner. Reading Cerveriana's blog. Minigeiser. Aroma good but improveable. Taste and feel really great. Very refreshing. Leaved me craving for more. Avg 4.01

5 March 2017: In Teku glass. After dinner. New label gives excuse to repeat. Great balance (more than i remembered) between bitterness and toasted caramel nutty malts. Easy drinking. Leaves a really long aftertaste

Another fine creation from Naparbier ive just had on tap, with plenty of hops on top of malts, lemon and brown sugar, with just the right amount of sweetness. Funnily enough i am finally getting into American styles through local breweries.
