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.

JorisPPattyn (7810) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 17, 2012
Yellow head, fading to transparant over very slightly hazed orange beer, well-carbonated. Very powerful nose of citrus and other exotic fruit (passion- and grapefruit especially). Very iniviting smell. Pure fruity hops; exotic fruit, citrus, hopoils galore, hence pretty bitter, in the most fruity way. Obviously light body, spritzy, but very refreshing and packed with flavour. Yet another low-alcohol gem. England did it always, now Italy, France, Netherlands and here Scotland can do it too - WTBH can’t Belgian brewers do more similar things?

mile (2880) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 13, 2012
Bottle. Dark golden, hazy, average mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and some tropical fruitiness with some citrus - herbal hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, faint caramel and light tropical fruitiness with some citrus hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dryish, light fruitiness and some citrus - herbal hoppyness. OK hoppyness wasted on watery/thin-bodied pale ale.

gnoff (7687) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2012
Draught at Ölrepubliken on November 12, 2012. During the BrewDog tap take over/week.
Clear copper color, dense yellow head. Sweet, caramel, hoppy, citrus, pine taste. Rather well balanced and tasty. Smooth yet a bit spritzy mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Pine aftertaste. Citrus, hoppy, herbal scent.
I like tasty low ABV beers and I like hoppy but not overly bitter beers, so all in all I like this beer!

danlo (1079) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2012
330ml bottle. Clear golden amber colour, foamy white head and hoppy fruity passionfruit wet blanket aroma. Immediate fizzy earthy bitterness on the tongue, hoppy and sweet, goes down smooth, leaving a back of the throat lingering dry bitterness. Fruity hop taste is nice but body is abit on the light watery side.
