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. Thatís 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.

daje (2761) - NORWAY - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle, shared march 16th 2013. Clear dark golden body with a small white head. Aroma of mango, orange and flowers. Taste of orange with a light crisp malt backbone and a piney finish. Bitterness is pleasing. A good beer at 3,8 for sure.

BlackHaddock (5069) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2013
330ml bottle: BBD 25 Jul 2013. Poured into a Duvel glass at home on 5 Jun 2013. Dull orange/amber body, with a slight haze within. Off-white head that started thin but stayed the distance. Citrus nose with a malty biscuit aroma as the beer warmed. The taste was also citrus in the fore with the malts arriving later: the hops re-asserting themselves towards the end of each sip. Iím not a huge ícitrusí flavoured beer man but this had something extra to offer somehow.

Boutip (5266) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle: Poured a light hazy amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of fresh floral citrus notes with lightly sweet undertones. Taste is also dominated by fresh citrus notes with light floral notes and sweet undertones with fresh fruity esters. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Nice fresh hops profile with nice mix between Simcoe and Citra hops with plenty of character with little alcohol.

McNeillR (1834) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 5, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2015 Firm light golden body, pillowy white head. Sparkly passionfruit punch on the nose, all about the hops. Initial taste of chalky pine, tightly squeezed fresh hop and slick malt backbone.The finish was a sweet enough caramel kiss off that became a bit more bitter and malty as the can warmed up.
Iíve not had many craft beers from can that have maintained a level of bitterness and balance, either they go flat and malty or are so sooped up (Modus Hoperandi being my case example) it makes little difference to your palate by the end. A really tidy effort.

3.7 Can, Nickís wifes 40th BBQ, Edinburgh

Had this many times since the launch in the summer, but usually with food and usually a spicy fucken Illegal Jacks which masks the thinness on the finish and actually is a bit of a relief. Iíve also been more accustomed to this clean, steely clementiness from Brewdog bottles. Perhaps itís something more complex, but itís quite an odd reassurance and was especially noteable in the Hoppy Loviní Christmas. This is a bit more of a grassy Hop muddle, still that gleam of Passionfruit and a tip over of bitterness. The finish is peppery sweet, cuts back onto a watery linger. Still very tidy and for a pale ale very complex.Bottle, Tesco, Batch 309

Once more with feeling. I keep going back to this, there is a glimmer to the nose that Iíve found alluring - more since I had a terrible tasting can a few weeks back - and finally getting a fresh a fupp bottle in a supermarket... A day over a week old. Nose is this flurry of passion fruit and citrus shavings. Neat, calming hop sweetness throughout and a decent peppering of bitterness. Flavours are much the same as ever, maybe a bit more appley weirdness and the crunchier malt masked a bit better. Still a bit thin and 2p coiny to finish but part the fact of the ABV and part the fact of the heightened expectation the initial satisfying tropical hop smash. Tom Waits says always keep a sapphire in your mind, I say always keep a Dead Pony in your fridge.

beikes (161) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2013
The only letdown here is the alcohol percentage. Everything else about this complex and hoppy-as-hell brew is just near perfection to me. There is cumin, oranges, limes and elderlfowers in the back of the this unsubtle and overly hoppy APA. I really, really like it! Hazy amber color with an explosive looking fluffy off-white head to match. Aroma makes your knees weak and itís goddamn alive on the palate as well. It really is good enough to drink from the bottle, or should I say light and frsh enough. But surely thatís not my recommendation. Try it in a shaker or footed pilsner to bring out the best of it. In the heat of the summer, this could be my go-to beer.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2013 I?d given up on brewdog but was persuaded to try this based on my love of all things citrussy. Glad I have, will def have a bottle of this again. Dry, pungent, fruity aroma. Taste bursting with citrus and sweet fruits. Quenching and easy to drink. Good one!
