Notes: Magic. Adventure. Mayhem. Fluffy bunny hugs. Bluffy hunny fugs. Sunshine farts on a skittle tart. German and English malts stalk one another in the K4 thunderdome, whilst Mosaic and Centennial hops willfully participate in the bloody sugarlust. Two malts enter, one beer leaves. It doesn’t take a team of rocket appliances to comprehend that this beer kicks ass.

Pours a mostly clear darker yellow golden color with white head. Light fruits, pineapple, mango, light citrus, some pine, and some bready notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with a nice balance between fruit, pine, and a malt backbone.

Straightforward very enjoyable classic pale ale. Well balanced. Flavour develops nicely into a rich round taste and a dry bitter citrus-rind finish. I'll have another!

Golden orange color, citrusy scent, very crisp and lively hoppy on the front, rather sparkly, and somewhat spicy lingering finish with a hint of bitter. Really liked this one.

Excellent APA from karben4. Deep orange in color, lots of crisp citrus almost orange juice flavors. Very clean finish.

Start bottling please

Super easy drinking brew from Karben4 . Clean crisp with a great easy finish. The lower ABV had me enjoying one after another. I highly recommend this beer one after another.

Had been reading about this one and was anxious to try it. Bought at Discount Milw. this morning. I had Fantasy Factory about a year ago and felt it was only average at best. This one is much better. It has a nice hop aroma and bite to it along with a nice mouth-feel as well. Will buy again. Hopefully it will become more widely available.
