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.

Copper orange with a tiny white head. Decent aroma of citrus, pineapple and pine. Light body, fruity hops, slightly pith bitter finish. Nice enough session PA.

kingvit was dead on. smell is maybe bleak, hoppy, but then the pine hits you. it’s light though, refreshing carbon. time to feel the hops come out. but there is that solid aftertaste, still bitter, buttery. look at it! great red, amber glow beautiful pony.

On draught at Brewdog Shoreditch. Small head. You smell the passion fruit from a distinance already. Lots of exotic fruits + lemon/lime. In the taste, the resin side of the hops come to the foreground more. More evidence that you don’t need a massive amount of alcohol to make a good beer.

KeefOz (1561) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2014
BB 07/04/15. Poured a hazy brown amber colour with 5mm of white foam for a head that diminished to a collar that laced OK. Carbonation high and coarse. Aroma of sweet fruity hops with citrus, grapefruit. Taste of moderate level of nice fruity hops and a touch of sweet malt. Light body. Crisp and smooth on the finish.

brewmook (1) - SCOTLAND - SEP 26, 2014 does not count
Smells nice and hoppy but not as tasty as expected. A little thin and too sharp, over carbonated.

Garlic_of_Doom (627) - SWEDEN - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle shared by Pure Evil. Thanks! Amber with a foam ring clinging to the glass. Aroma has light malt, faint mango, pineapple and pine. Taste is as above. Thin body, high carbonation, crisp and dry mouth feel. Dry, woody short aftertaste.

Holmen2 (2914) - NORWAY - SEP 24, 2014
Orange. Good beige head and lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, lime and pine shoots. Similar taste, with orange marmelade. Perhaps too much taste of lime juice. Otherwise decently balanced. Slightly waterish mouthfeel. Fine bitterness

A sessionable alternative to Punk IPA. Frickin excellent aroma, a real cleanser. Shame about the completely ludicrous and over-the-top marketing gobbledygook written all over the bottle. In the battle against corporate beer, it seems Brewdog are getting very rich indeed. Let’s hope their ’punk’ values enable them to do some good in the world.

ninecats (490) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2014
Pours somewhat hazy yellow with a fairly big white quickly dissipating foam leaving some minor lacings. Aroma is fresh tropical fruit, pine, zest, mango. Taste is quite wattery, with tropical fruits and a moderate bitterness lingering. Light body, medium carbo. High drinkability.
