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.

About time I reviewed this. It’s a fall back beer for me and it’s easily available in Waitrose and Sainsburys in the UK. Nice orangey brown colour, small white head which disappears. Very tempting aroma of grapefruit, floral hoppiness and citrus orange. Taste is medium bitter with a tasty citrus middle. I really do enjoy this and the low ABV is a great bonus which means I can drink a few! Great beer.

Bottle from Sainsburys Gateshead. Pours light amber. Fruity, floral, hoppy with a surprisingly strong back for such a low ABV. One of my favourites.

Bozo_skeleton (432) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JUN 14, 2014
Blonde dorée, limpide, tres peu de carbo, petit collet. Aromes tres marques sur les houblons aromatiques, fruits exotiques en tete, citron, herbe, sève. Orange et seve se partagent le palais sur un final d’amertume caramelise. Legere sécheresse, manque un peu de rondeur.

On tap at Piwna Stopa, Poznań. Pours deep amber with a white head. Citrus aroma of American hops. Light bodied, very tasty citrus flavour and bitter aftertaste. Very good session beer.

Bottle. Beautiful deep amber white head. Powerful typical citra hop aroma. Very light body, light citrusy taste, bitter palate. Good thirst quencher. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(Flasche) Es hat eine orangene bis brozene Farbe, ist leicht trüb mit einer einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist sehr fruchtig, Johannisbeere, Quitte, etwas Zitrone, und etwas würziges. Der Geschmack ist sehr schlank, fast wässrig, etwas harzig und im Hintergrund fruchtig. Bittere gibt es nur schwach.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2014 Brons-oranjekleurig bier met kleine schuimkraag. Heerlijk fruitig aroma van meloen, perzik, beetje citrus. Lekker frisse smaak met lange bittere afdronk. Ondanks het lage alcoholpercentage is het een bier met een volle smaak. Topbrouwsel.

Fantastic summer beer - light, and extremely tasty. It goes down very easily.
