COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true pale ale. The full body and rich gold colour comes from a blend of wheat, pale ale and crystal malts. It’s floral and lime citrus nose is created by the extensive use of carefully selected New World aroma hops. The final stage of dry hopping then produces a rich berry flavour for a big refreshing, satisfying brew.

Flaska från SB. Kopparröd klar vätska med en liten krona som dock lämnar spår. Malten finns där samt lite kola och blommig. Många skriva grapefrukt, men den hittar inte jag. Svårt att identifiera specifika smaker tycker jag, men citrus blandat med något mörkare, kanske lite rostat? Behaglig beska dröjer sig kvar. Stort plus för extremt snygg etikett!

jookos (2607) - FINLAND - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle. Somewhat leafy, a bit skunky grapefruit oranges. Lightish dry bitter body. Oranges, grapefruit, pine. Well hopped, but feels a bit funky.

arsol (608) - NORWAY - JAN 25, 2014
kobberrød/brun farge. Klar og med lys beige skum som henger i glassveggen. Aroma av malt, humle, sødme og noe karamell. Frisk i smak med humlepreg. Lettdrikkelig, frisk og absolutt en god øl.

HKdIPA (298) - HONG KONG - JAN 8, 2014
Nice looking amber color with almost no head. Aroma is a faint floral smell. Thin palate with a bit of carbonation. Some bitterness. A bit of citrus hops. Taste dissipates quickly into nothing. So-so.

ruigo (1244) - PORTUGAL - DEC 10, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2013 Shared a 33cl bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Pours an almost clear copper colour with a off-white head. Aroma is hoppy, fruity, mango and lightly sweet. Average carbonation and light body. Taste is bitter at start but with a more sweet and dry finish. A bitter aftertaste. Overall, I love pale ales and this is not an exception.

Scottishchris (242) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Cask at The Cambridge Bar, Edinburgh. 5.2% rather than bottled 5.6% (according to the blackboard anyway). Pours crystal clear golden orange with good white head that lasts. Nice lacing. Nose of oranges, mango, citrus. Sweetish start, good carbonation. Slightly bitter finish, some hops. One of my favourite from Black Isle this was first time is tried it not out if a bottle. Really good, could've definitely had another.

biirusaikou (811) - - NOV 13, 2013
Herbal and citrus hops aroma. Orange juice flavor, candy, floral hops, sweet finish. A bit too dry on the ending but nice organic ale for a change, not your classic British brew.
