Traditional W Coast hop notes watered down to be paper thin. Gulps way too quickly + forgettably for 5.6% - think of how satisfying SNPA is. And though it’s a nice little hop blast, for these varieties to be playing citrus + evergreen, not tropical, they must be adding them one pellet at a time. The soul of an APA, the body of a micro-IPA.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Golden color with an almost fluffy head with medium retention and leaving some laces.
Delicious tropical aroma with notes of mango, pine, fresh oranges, lychees, guava and flowers.
Flavor with notes of pine, resin, some mango, lemon peel and grapefruit. Quite dry and bitter aftertaste. Its 55 IBUs are shining through its thin body.
Light body with appropriate carbonation of tiny bubbles.
Refreshing and bitter APA with a tropical nose and a pine resiny and citrusy flavor. Hop juice.

A 330ml can with a BB of Aug 2018. Acquired a while back from the Brewdog webshop.

A: Poured into a Duvel tulip. Can-conditioned. A rich, hazy amber hue with light carbonation and tons of floating sediment. Yields a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a minute or two before subsiding to a patchy surface layer. Slight lacing.

S: Aroma of intense fruity hops with hints of lemon, zesty citrus, peel, subtle tropical fruit, grass/hay, leafiness, ale yeast, mild caramel malt and faint barley sugar. Balanced and vibrant - superb.

T: Tastes of supremely fruity hops with notes of grapefruit, citrus zest, rind, tropical fruit, grass/hay, leafiness, ale yeast, earthiness, subtle caramel malt and a hint of barley sugar. Pretty dry, followed by a robust hop-driven bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with spritzy carbonation and great body. Nicely textured and balanced; moderately astringent. Aftertaste of bitter aromatic hops, grapefruit, citrus, tropical fruit, earthy yeast and mild caramel malt.

O: A tasty, hop-laden pale ale - excellent. Looks alright, while the aroma and flavour are stuffed with bitter fruity hops, earthy yeast and malt. Nice body. Very drinkable; a must-try for hop-heads. Worth sampling if you come across it.

On tap at the Spaniards. Pours a hazy honey orange with small head that left no lace. Nose is fruity overripe mango and orange. Taste is primarily hoppy citrus with enough bitterness that more rind and citrus peel evolve through the finish. Overall, another solid beer from TR.

From Miguel. Can. In Teku glass. Playing 12 Labours of Hercules + ordering beer labels. Citrusy aroma, pine dominating taste. A bit more carbonated fee than desiderable but fairly drinkable. Miss more refreshingness

Golden-pale colour, a bit cloudy, with residues.
Smell: elderflower, peach, quince.
The taste is hidden at forst behind the strong carbonation, but afterwards you can feel the herbal, citrus and elderflower aromas.
A very pleasant and refreshing American Pale Ale overall.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

L: Very hazy honey-like color, half finger white head, messy lacing, loads of carbonation.

S: Floral, hoppy, malty.

T: Hoppy, bready, some orange peel, malty.

F: Very strong carbonation makes it not the most drinkable beer in the world but still goes down pretty well. I feel this would be a great refreshing summer beer.

O: Not a standout but pretty decent APA.

Hazy yellow color with slightly off-white head. Aroma is fresh and grassy with citrus and white grapes. Taste starts hoppy and bitter up-front. Finishes hoppy with nice fruity notes and a good amount of bitterness. Body is medium, carbonation too. Really nice, easy drinking pale ale.
