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

My first micro brew from Ireland. These are hard to come by here. It was a crisp with grapefruit, orange, orange peel with subtle floral notes. Medium body and exactly what I was looking for. It drank very well!

Pale golden beer. Lovely and creamy caramel taste with a sharp grapefruit aftertaste.

Hints of pine and orange in the aroma. Lively carbonation accentuates the hops which are followed up nicely by the malt compexity.

Bottle shared with northropfrye in Dingle. Apricot colour body. Faint aroma of sweet fruit. Taste is subtle hoppiness. Nice.

JanLaursen (3025) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2014
Fra fad. Tåget gylden, lavt hvidt skum. Frisk, sexy og humlet næse. US-humler. Citrus, fedtede fyrnåle og en lille smule sarmsved. Mild karamel i malten, men der er humlen, der styrer. Slutter med dejlige tørre harpiks-noter. Farlig høj drinkabillity.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - FEB 23, 2012
Bottle, thanks Stephanos! Orange amber pour, thick bubbly head eventually fades with good lacing. Soft pithy orange and lemon on the nose. Somewhat juicy front, hint of caramel sweetness, lemony bitterness, hint of bready malt. Not bad at all.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUL 22, 2012
Draught- Are we sure we’re all drinking the same beer? Moderately bitter aroma of Orange, caramel and crystal malt. Fruity flavour with some earthy hoppiness, quite sweet. Firm palate. Very nice and a great session beer. I can only assume that the poorer reviews are due inconsistency issues from the new brewery, because I’ve had this s number of times on draught and have found it nothing but lovely.

garthicus (2658) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 14, 2012
Bottle. Appearance: Hazy orange, thick, proud snow white head. Aroma: Grassy hops, malty, grain, a little citrus, a little pear. Flavour: Bitter at first, quite a decent amount of hoppiness, good malty sweetness, pears again, a little light on the mouth feel but has a long enjoyable bitter finish.

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Draught at Bierhaus. Pours a nice hazy golden colour with a medium white froth that lasts. Nose of citrus, freshly cut grass with a floral hint - very appetizing. Taste is a lightly balanced malty sweetness to begin with followed by a a big hoppy bitter kick. Nice lively carbonation yet maintains a smooth mouthfeel. A very good Irish attempt at an APA.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2013 Bottle in Dingle, Ireland. Light amber colour. Sweet citrus aroma. Taste is bitter, sweet citrus fruits, strawberry. Quite nice. Tried on tap a few days later, upped the rating a bit.
