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.

mile (3039) - 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 (7934) - 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 (1223) - 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.

Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 10, 2012
0,33l bottle from Csakajósör, Budapest. Clear, orange color with medium white head. Strong pine and resin odor. Intensive, agressive, resin, pine and a little bit grass aroma. Clear, dry, medium bitter taste. Light body, slick texture and lively carbonation with small bubbles. Dry, hoppy finish. This is a nice, delicious, small bodied, well-hopped beer. The malty flavour can’t be really felt. Intensive, "kick ass" hoppy one. Easily drinkable, light beer.

hetyu (115) - HUNGARY - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle- Pours clear golden amber, medium white head and light lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and citrus hops, light pine, dusty grains. Taste quite hoppy for such low ABV, tongue tingling, profile much like the nose, mild sweetness towards the end before nice bitter finish, dry. Light sparkling body, this one goes down quick and easy. Really tasty stuff, awesome session brew.!

downender (6391) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle from Sainsburys. Deep amber in colour with a rocky, off-white head. Aroma of orange fruit, with some sweet malts and a hint of pine. Flavour had more citrus fruit, biscuity malts and a dry, lingering finish. Good.

RichardGretton (4260) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2012
Bottle. Golden beer with a strong foamy head. The aroma is florally hopped, and the flavour is very well hopped with a deeply bitter and dry finish. Overall a nice very well hopped and dry beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BitchPls (573) - FINLAND - NOV 6, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2013 Love the fruity and hoppy aroma. Love the smooth white foam. Hazy orange colour. Very watery body. Still good bitterness. The bitterness is sharp like it tends to be in beers this ABV. It’s good.

inbirraveritas (1242) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 5, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2014 Bottled, 330 ml. Opal deep golden coloured brew with some sediments and a big creamy lasting off-white head on its top, which laces thickly. Pine-fruity nose. Aroma ruled by pine, resin and herbs underpainted by mild caramel and florals, texture is slick. Lingering and dry, grapefruity finish. Very good.
