RichardGretton (4293) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2014
Bottle. Amber beer with a strong head. The aroma is lightly hopped, and the flavour is very well hopped with a thick floral finish. Overall a nice American pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beersiveknown (3246) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUN 21, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2014 Bottle at home from the brewery
slightly hazy burnished gold with lacing of white head. Mango pith and dusty lemons and some cattiness on the nose. Medium carbonation, digestive biscuit malt, citrus pith and slight mango with dry bitterness and lemon shortcake finish. Almost spot on, a little less carbonation and it’d be killer. One of the best Irish pales.
Keg at brewery and Folkhouse
Some fried onions and really dank hops on nose (centennial dry hop?) but that dissipates. Really fresh, carbonation lower than in bottle form so really spot on. Need more!

garthicus (2728) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 17, 2013
Appearance: golden orange, seems a little hazy. Small white head. Aroma: hoppy, some corn, grain, grass, banana, lemon peel. Flavour: Bitter grain, hoppy, grassy, a little bran, tangy with a long citrus finish. Not bad at all.
