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. Hazy amber liquid with small to medium off - white head. Aroma of tangerine, citrus, pine, mango, biscuit and caramel. Taste is dry and light to medium bitter with notes of mango, tangerine and bread. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice, very good for the ABV.

banii (240) - Sola, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2013
En frisk humlebasert øl, hvor tropiske frukter, sitrus og litt mild amerikansk furu både preger aroma og smak. Joda, den er litt tynn i kroppen, men som et lavalkoholholdig alternativ til en IPA er dette brukanes.

jmgreenuk (5225) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - FEB 24, 2013
Draft at Brewdog, Birmingham. Poured a very slightly hazy medium amber with a broken white head and loads of broken white lace. The aroma is grassy and a little floral. The flavour, is rather strong bitter, crisp, floral, grassy and very hoppy. The palate is mellow spicy and a little dry. At 3.8% its a perfect session beer that has flavour!

mighty_meadow (286) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - FEB 24, 2013
Coppery coloured with thin white head. As soon as cap is off you are rushed by a massive hoppy aroma just urging you to take a drink. Great grapefruit(y) taste with something a bit biscuity not far behind. Also some pine and dandelion(?) Slightly dry, bitter finish, like citrus zest. Very nice beer - wish I had bought more.

morri (233) - NORWAY - FEB 23, 2013
330ml bottle from Meny. Small off-white head which lasts for a while. Amber body. Aroma is dominated by cascade hops. Taste is a little weak, could have been richer. Perhaps a higher ABV would’ve helped.

MartinT (8247) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Citrusy, wooden hoppiness provides plenty of aroma, flavor and bitterness for this slender American-style Pale Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam laces nicely atop the misty amber-hued golden.
-A mineral twang accompanies the soft-feeling large bubbles.
-This makes for a delicious lunch-time brew.
-The fruity hoppiness also emulates mango juice at times.
-I would like a bigger bottles of this.

RuneStumo (2276) - FØRRESFJORDEN, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2013
22.02.2013. 0,33l Bottle. Meny Aksdal. Golden amber yellow colour with white head. A little unclear. Sharp carbonation with aroma dominated by fresh green spruce shoots. Body is thin to medium with notes of grainy malt. A little thin at the end. Very nice sharp and firm aromatic hopping with spuce and herbs.

Desverger (2578) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 21, 2013
Bottle from Sainsburys, Lee, SE London - Orange/golden pour with a medium white/off white head. Grapefruit, pine and sweet biscuity malt most noticeable here. Sweet start followed by a bitter finish. Good stuff.

Vignale (2274) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2013
Drucken på fat på Bishop Gustav. Otroligt fruktig doft. En tropisk fruktcocktail med massor av passionsfrukt, lichie, papaya och ananas. Mycket lätt kropp, liten gräsig beska, men det är den friska fräscha fruktiga humlen som gör ölen. Ett fin våröl i vårvintersolen på uteserveringen.

haukur (1345) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - FEB 21, 2013
Huge hoppy west coast nose. Very fruity, nicely balanced, bitter but a bit light finish. Good session nonetheless
