COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It delivers a refreshing crisp smack around the gills. It pours a pale golden colour and the malty sweetness is well balanced by the Chinook and Centennial hops. Goes well with fish, chicken or anything off the barbeque

Joli jeu de mots, ou de sigle, puisqu’une Irish Pale Ale est aussi une IPA par les initiales. Et dans le verre, ici, c’est confirmé de superbe façon … Joli jeu de mots aussi très probablement, sur le mot « gale » qui est la tempête mais aussi une plante des marais, la myrte, dont le brasseur a très bien pu faire usage ... Niveau abv de 5 %. Couleur blond doré abricoté, à la clarté nette. Bulles moyennes, très peu nombreuses, survenant par à-coups. Mousse blanche soyeuse, fine, qui nappe à 2 mm. Arômes de pamplemousse, pointe de citron, ortie, miel de tilleul, camomille. 1ère bouche souple à la très belle entame malt/houblon, avec une une fine pointe fumée en rétro-nez. Arrière-bouche avec des agrumes et du poivre blanc. 2ème à la grande association malt/houblon. Arrière-bouche fine, complexe, à la grande amertume. 3ème avec une insertion du malt très originale. Arrière-bouche longue, magnifique. Longueur qui développe les nuances, avec du tabac blond, des tanins. Jambes fines, serrées, groupées. Levure douce, fine, belle ligne. Alcool bien, il soutient l’amertume et l’ensemble. Finale très belle. CONCLUSION : très belle ipa qui fait honneur à l’Irlande (ce qui est quand même le minimum pour une irish …). La « gale » pourra « howler » à fond les manettes !!! Et nous allons howler avec elle ...

tricksta_p (3251) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is pale malt, fruity hops, zesty citrus, grapefruit, orange. Flavour is about medium bitter with a dry finish. Medium bodied. Nicely refreshing and citrus hoppy APA, seems a bit underrated.

guzgorog (673) - FRANCE - FEB 21, 2016
Blonde dorée limpide, haute mousse blanche. Nez très fruité sur le citron et la clémentine. La bouche est plus fade, on retrouve les arômes d’agrumes en plus léger. Le corps est assez aqueux, l’amertume moyenne, la carbo excellente. Bière de soif, légère, très fraiche, fruitée et agréable.

VDuquerroux (1147) - Airvault, FRANCE - JAN 28, 2016
Bottle, 33cL. Home. Christmas gift from my parents. A golden orange to yellow beer with a big off-white foamy head ; great retention. Herbs, resin, fruits (citrus such as lime or grapefruit), tropical fruits. Medium dry lasting bitter refreshing ; sweet note which makes the fruity citrus story coming to life. Light body, medium texture, light silky, good carbonation, bitter fruity lasting finish. Overall, beautiful, wonderful fruity resinous herbal landscape, nice bitterness, light silky ; that’s it.

Fitzchivalry (1) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 9, 2015 does not count
My go to ale. Nothing fancy or flash, just a crisp tasting, flavour-some ale. Not the best out there but reasonably priced hence the high scores. 8 Degrees are one of my favourite brewers, always innovating and suprising me with some fascinating brews.
