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. That’s 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.

Nice American Pale Ale, the Hops are very fruity, little herbal, maybe pine aroma? And its just about great in bitternes. Just right for the moment. Cheers ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught. Smoky amber colour, huge bubbles in the head. Sweet hoppy nose. Didn't have the huge hop attack that was promised, but the other flavours were so nice and the mouthfeel so polished that I didn't care. Apples, pine, bit of soap. Much sweeter than expected, but pretty nice.

From a 33cl bottle, pours a slightly hazy amber color with a very small off white head. Aroma of caramel malts, hops and grass. Flavors of caramel malts, toasty, hops, herbs, biscuits. A little dry feel in mouth, light body. the caramel and hops are a nice mixed here.

luttonm (2192) - Belgrade, SERBIA - SEP 16, 2013
.33l draft unexpectedly at Belgrade cafe shop Šoljica on Nikola Pasic Trg. Features single-origin teas and coffees and some Brewdog beers they import themselves. Huge development, great to see. I just hope they touch up the cafes and music a bit more. Gorgeous deep orange with creamy off white head. Rich, resiny juice, hops, Smooth ale body, good bitter. Tart fruity hop up front but mellows quickly great juiciness, bitter banana, bready yeast. Good!

Majek (323) - Ząbki, POLAND - SEP 15, 2013
Clear, golden colour and medium head. Absolutely fantastic aroma of sweet citrus (Passion fruit and mango) and some herbal. Taste is excellent too. Lots of malts and especially citrus notes. Surprisngly full body compare to 3,8% ABV. Good job!

Douberd (2220) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle, 330 ml at Sugar Hill Cafe, Arnhem. Into a Brewdog glass. ABV 3.8% Deep orange to amber colour on the body. Thin, froathy,off white head. Good retention though. Light lacing rings as I drink it. Very hoppy aroma with lots of floral notes and a bit of citrus. Very bitter taste from the beginning, heavily hopped,refreshing. Hints of cookie dough. thin body, average carbonation. Very dry on the palate. Great beer, and with that alcohol content perfect for all day drinking.

# 3376 ersma: gabs beim 2. nordbrauertreffen im ratsherrn craft beer shop vom fass. hell karamellfarben mit mittlerer verschäumung. der geruch ist intensiv nach mango, passionsfrucht und kirsche. der antrunk ist bitter und fruchtig, folgt der nase. die mitte ist bitter,aber etwas schwach auf der brust, was die aromen angeht. der abgang bringt etwas malz mit, hat aber einen eher dünnen körper. fazit: fulminanter start und dann verschwindets in der versenkung. merkwürdig. dennoch trinkbar. 11,11,8,9,-,9 - 9,35 - 15/9/13
