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.

Bottle. Fruity hop aroma. Lots of tropical hops and dusty lemons in the flavour. Caramel malt flavour takes a back seat. A slighty thin body that is the only indication of the low ABV.

mikkopen (824) - Oulu, FINLAND - DEC 21, 2012
330 ml bottle. Amber colour, thin white head. Aroma of sweet exotic fruits, citrus and pine. The flavour is fruity, with a pine cone hoppy finish. A little thin on the palate, and lacks the malt backbone that would make it balanced and enjoyable.

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2012
Light amber. No head. Has a lot of hop aroma, citrus and papaya with light body. Touch of bitterness. The filtration hurts this beer a light, sucking a lot of life out of it and diminishing the mouthfeel. Generally a good beer though.

SarkyNorthener (1788) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2012
Bottle. Amber colour,residual head. Aroma of citrus fruits. Taste of grapefruit, hops and a little sweet. I love these hoppy beers so I think this is another good one by brewdog.

330ml bottle. Pours clear copper with medium head that disappears pretty quickly. Great fruity aroma with hints of peach and mango. Not quite as rich and complex in flavour but still lovely. Light sweetness and fruit with some mild citrus hops. Some bitterness, but perhaps not quite enough to balance it out perfectly, leaving it a little short at the end. Minor faults, good beer. I could easily drink a lot of this.

Bendrixian (1094) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 16, 2012
mostly clear with a amber colour and slight red note, with a medium head. hoppy citrus and pine cone aroma but i do a get a bit of funk or something. medium bodied brew with a quiet flavour profile. it is well hoped, finished bitter but lacks complexity.

From a bottle (330ml). A very nice aroma of hay and grass. Bitter in the end. Interesting beer from Brewdog.

Kamol (17) - POLAND - DEC 15, 2012
330ml bottle. Nice orange colour and rich hoppy smell. The taste lacks something however. It’s very unfulfilled.

Atheist_Peace (940) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 15, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours copper with an off-white head, that leaves a ton of lace down the glass. Tons of hops on the nose. Spruce with some heavy citrus but not much else going on. My first impression was of those fruit flavoured marshmallow candies. There’s a lot of upfront tropical fruit there with some pine needles. Tasty, but thin and ultimately unfulfilling.

jackl (4560) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Bottle @ Byron Burger. The pour’s light gold with a modest white head. The aroma’s of bright grapefruit, tropical citrus, sea salt. Mango fruit salad. The taste is more bright tropcial fruits. Soft pacific hop bitterness. Light mineral on the finish. Zippy, light body. Effervescent palate. Overall, a really nice beer, especially considering the spare ABV. Much better than expected.
