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.

12 ounce bottle
The fact that you can pick this up in grocery stores around the UK would make me envious except for the wealth on the shelves stateside. Still, it is an excellent example of how bigger is not always better. Drink one fresh and prepare to be amazed by what creative brewing can bring to the low gravity experience.

Aroma / Appearance - The bright orange base glows like the inside of a lava lamp. Fluffy white clouds of head rest atop the surface. Orange, citrus, and grapefruit are assertive, bright, and airy.

Flavor / Palate - The bitter first impression hangs around. On top builds a wave of citrus aspects. Carried along in a brilliant mouthfeel the total package amazes the unexpecting senses. Rather than a dull boring session beer this packs enough flavor to compete with something twice the ABV. You will not be disappointed (if it is fresh).

0,33L bottle. Pleasant citrus, hop aroma. Enjoyable, little bitter, medium citrus, floral, wet rag taste. End is bit bitterish, stronger flavor of spring flower blossom comes somwhere a moment. Nice beer.

Ktwse (2002) - SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2013
On tap @ Brewdog Bar Stockholm! Pours amber with off-white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, hops, light malt. Taste is hoppy light bitter with fairly abrupt finish. Body is light obviously, with soft carbonation. Very good for the ABV! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

iammarc (385) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - MAY 21, 2013
330ml can at Brew at the Bog. I could sit and drink this in the pub all night long - a true session beer. Great hop aroma and very palatable. Pity I didn't have the opportunity to taste from the tap, although can is just as good these weathers. Citrus, slight floral nose and incredibly tasty despite its relatively low ABV. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a 330ml can. Pours light golden brown, hoppy aroma with citrus, orange & grapefruit, nicely balanced with caramel and toffee malt flavours. Very pleasant session ale.

thebeertourist (4822) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle at De Paas, Den Haag. Hazy golden, solid head. Exotic fruity hoppiness, no nonsense bitterness. Light body as expected. Quite a session beer

Bottled 330ml. -from Különleges Sörök Boltja, Budapest. Clear amber coloured, small off-white head, fresh grapefruity hoppy nose. Moderate malty, fresh grapefruity and rather bitter hoppy taste with discreet hint of rose hip. Mild bitter finish. Very good beer for only 3.8%.
