A golden beer with a settling head that leaves lace on the glass.

Smell of citrus hops, smells like cascade mixed with US-05. Some low malty notes, straw.

Taste is not too bitter. The hoparomas are OK, but too low for an APA. The maltiness has straw, honey, some lemon and a bready notes. A very drinkable beer.

On tap at the Beer Temple, Amsterdam.

Pours pure gold with a sticky rocky pure white head that's here to stay and leaves sheets and rings. Nose is orange, honey-caramel, and resin all blended into one like candy - an amazingly tempting nose. Candy sweet pale malts - bits of white sugar and orange sherbet - followed by grapefruit and lemon hops to end, with flavor over IBUs. Light, crisp, slightly sticky but thin.

Contract brewed for the Beer Temple as their house brew, though I've read conflicting things on where the actual brewing is taking place.
Surprised to be the first to review this beer - this American beer bar has been open since 09/09/09, and is a magnet for tourists and expats, from the looks of it.

A hop flavor forward APA with plenty of sweetness. The malt bill is just there to pin the hops on, but the simplicity makes sense in a house brew. Drinkable for 6%, but also forgettable over the long run.
