COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle and keg: Filtered
Ingredients: Spring Blend, Cara and Crystal Malts; Simcoe, Citra and HBC hops.
This Californian Pale Ale packs a huge hoppy punch. A 21st century low amplitude, high voltage hop hit. Some people say slow is good. We believe fast is better. Being shot from a Hoppy Howitzer beats the hell out of trotting round a submissive paddock. Thatís why the internal combustion engine got mounted onto two wheels. Screw down the throttle and listen for that dull banshee howl floating back from those malted mufflers. Drink fast, live fast, sleep late and rip it up down empty streets. This pale ale is chopped, tuned and ready to roll. Fuel up and hold tight, this little thoroughbred kicks like a mule. Perfect for drinking by the bottle, case or even keg.

A beer that is easy to drink but is too light in taste and palate for my taste.

”tima cerveja da Brewdog. O Aroma realmente ť o ponto mais alto. O gosto, em algum momento fica meio enjoativo, mas n„o de uma maneira que comprometa. Curti muito!

VDuquerroux (268) - Airvault, FRANCE - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. An orange beer with brown hues. Medium white head. Light persistence. Intense fruity aroma (tropical fruits, lemon, red berries), resin. Medium dry bitter, light sour note. Light body, watery texture, lively carbonation, light bitter finish. Overall, intense fruity aroma witha light taste. Disappointed :(

Other ratebeer member said íscent of grassí. To me itís more a scent of hay. Well, dead pony > dead grass. Makes sense. Slightly bitter, not too much carbonation. Low on ABV, but itís still a beer with a bite.

Kosmokrator (477) - ITALY - AUG 2, 2014
Limpido color ambrato chiaro con saponoso cappello di schiuma bianca poco persistente. Aroma luppolato e fruttato con sentori esotici di pesca e the; gusto mediamente amaro con una vena piý dolciastra con note di malto e frutta fresca ed un finale erbaceo e asciutto. Corpo lieve, effervescenza debole, struttura un poí acquosa. Fresca, leggera e beverina, perfetta per la spiaggia!

Fantastic hop-driven lower-alc golden ale - sure, itís light bodied and so tastes watery but thatís exactly as it should be - doesnít pretend to be what itís not: a thirst quencher par excellence - and still lots of fruity/herbal flavour - yet another BrewDog winner.
