A blend of pale and crystal malts and ample quantities of Cascade hops from America’s Pacific Northwest. Well balanced, medium bodied, citrusy and unfiltered; this is a California-style dry-hopped Pale Ale that is full of flavour with intense hop aromas.

Theydon_Bois (12744) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2015
Keg at the brewpub, 28/06/15. Clear amber golden with a decent off white covering. Nose is pale malt, caramel, light hop, grass. Taste comprises caramel malt, bitter orange, light bread, toasty, melon. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so APA, drinkable but lacks any discerning hop input.

Gangstergafje (284) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2015
The beer has a reddish brown appearance. Lit has a little drape of soft white foam. The smell is very sweet. It had nice hoppy smells. The taste is great. It is sour and bitter, balanced by nice sweet tastes. The sourness and the sweetness are from the citrusy hop. Everything is balanced to perfection. After you take a dip your mouth fills with a very nice sensation, I can’t really explain what it is. Try it for yourself would I say!
