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.

flemmingwillum (1108) - Nysted, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2013
Rating #824, flaske som jeg ikke kan huske hvor kommer fra, men måske Netto i Nysted.

Det er en ravgylden øl med et solidt og nemt formbart skum. Duften er meget blomstret og frugtigt humlet, specielt med masser af solbær. Smagen er fuldfed af humle, igen med solbær akkompagneret af smør, og afsluttende i en skarp, ren bitterhumle. Medium tyngde. Mere velsmagende og humlet end mange IPA’er og tydeligt amerikansk inspireret.

ruigo (1815) - PORTUGAL - JUL 9, 2013
33cl bottle from Auchan (Luxembourg). Pours clear orange with an average size head that turns into a nice caramel lacing. The aroma is fantastic, from hops to floral with some notes of peach, mango and grapefruit. But the flavour does not match it. Starts quite bitter turning to sweet and with a dry end and a light sweet aftertaste. Medium to low carbonation.

Can. Great crisp fresh spikey critic nose. Gentle but full of flavour and depth. Lovely crystal sparkle of deep gold with an orange edge. Very satisfying with good depth. Outstandingly refreshing. Why is that the best BrewDog beers are those that are relatively inexpensive,unassuming and fly under the radar?

mikkellund42 (675) - DENMARK - JUL 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours light hazy caramel brown with huge foamy offwhite head. Aroma is red grapefruit, dried rose leaves, (overripe) peach, caramel, malt, biscuits and cookies. Taste is initial light sweet then moderate bitter and acidic. Body is oily with sparkling carbonation. Finish is long, sweet and bitter with notes of fruit, perfume, caramel and spice. Excellent and complex beer.

Lovely, slightly sweet, surprising considering it came out of a can which can often kill all flavour. Nice strong colour, flowery aroma and a smooth after taste

Prokroustis (689) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JUL 3, 2013
Pale copper body with a white head. Very nice strong hoppy aroma with lots of grapefruit, spices, mango. Light to medium body with decent carbonation. Bitter flavour with grassy hops, some grapefruit, pineapple. Very nice, despite the low abv.

TET (2261) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUL 3, 2013
A dark orange colour a head is weak and blond. The nose is fresh and tropical, mangos, pineapples and wet pine forest. Taste is strongly bitter, but also fruitfull and tropical, lots of pine needles, mangos. Light bodied, that isn’t support the taste, but still the end is quite long and it dries to the piney. Strongly bittery, light and refreshning beer.

plaugher (288) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 2, 2013
330ml bottle into pilsener glass. Pours a hazy amber with a long lasting, pillowy head. Unexpectedly hoppy aroma with a hint of citrus. Relatively light body with a goodly amount of carbonation. A bit hoppy flavour with some btiterness on the back-end. Wouldn’t know by the taste that it was only 3.8%, as it seems on par with a middling ipa hop-punch wise. Epitome of a session beer; ’tis a shame that it is a relatively costly import in town.

On tap in Edinburgh. Definitely an enjoyable APA, though I thought the aroma was more intense than the taste, which was not as bitter as I had hoped. Still very good.
