COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg& bottles, regular.Dry hopped for extra aroma, this pale ale has a light malt base with just the right mouthfeel to allow the hop character to predominate. Grapefruit like bitterness is full and lasting and is balanced by a zesty citrus burst of aroma from two late additions of cascade hops.

hrabren (567) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 20, 2016
UPDATED: APR 20, 2016 I thought I rated this one. Bottle at Sheridan?s Irish Pub in Zagreb. Hazy golden, small white head. Elderberry, flowers, meadow. Sweet, light to medium body, medium to high carbonation. Some hoppiness in the finish, some malts also. Nice texture, but to carbonated. I remember this as a better beer while it was on tap.

JPDIPSO (5299) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2016
Golden color with a light khaki colored head. Interesting scents, with toasted malt, light coffee. raw grains and buttered noodles. BB 28 June 2017, so freshness should not be an issue. Flavors of floor malt and raw grains. Generic bitterness, akin to sucking on an aspirin. Sooo, an Irish pale/amber ale. Whoop! Not!

Jow (3185) - New York, USA - APR 6, 2016
Tap as part of flight purely for the new brewery tick. Dirty blonde beer sudsy white head. Nose is fruity and fairly malty. Tastes of odd fruits like honey dew that’s been out a bit, some bitter hops, pine sol, malt. Thin and muddy palate.

ajnepple (4657) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 31, 2016
On tap at Black Bottle Brewery. Slight hazy orange appearance with a small white head. Aroma of toasted grain and light piney, resinous hops. Similar flavor, adding bready malts and a hint of fruity esters. Medium body with a mild sweet, light bitter finish. OK.

Fules (186) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAR 19, 2016
Nagy, nagyon tartós hab, sötét borostyán szín. Malátás, amber ales illat. Malátás, kissé kesernyés ízvilág, amber ales beütéssel, pici savanyúval. Utóíze kesernyés, kis savanykássággal. Közepesen testes.

AssKicker (125) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - MAR 9, 2016
Blonde aux reflets roux, mousse et carbo corrects. En bouche, présence modérée du malt et du houblon, ce dernier étant plutôt porté sur le résineux. Tout est modéré, et ce malgré l’utilisation du dry hopping. Une bičre agréable.

DraftDodger (839) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 4, 2016
Copenhagen 4/3 2016. 50 cl bottle from Meny. Very green label with ornaments that looks a bit Gaelic. Pours clear golden yellow with white head. Settles as very thin creamy layer for foam. Only very moderate lacing. Aroma is fruity with citrus and grape fruit. Slightly metallic. Medium carbonation and slightly thick palate. Flavor of mallty sweetness. Followed by distinct bitterness. Metallic notes. Quite dry finish. A bit one-dimensional - but not terrible at all.
