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 @ home, 22/7 2013. Clear orange, small white head that settles quickly, okay lacing. Aroma, nice grapefruit/piney hoppy with malty background, . Taste, bitter hoppy, grapefruit lemon piney, mild malty background, . Bitter grapefruit aftertaste, that lingers for a little. Great session beer, with big taste at only 3,8%.

A sessionable alternative to Punk IPA. Frickin excellent aroma, a real cleanser. Shame about the completely ludicrous and over-the-top marketing gobbledygook written all over the bottle. In the battle against corporate beer, it seems Brewdog are getting very rich indeed. Let’s hope their ’punk’ values enable them to do some good in the world.

ninecats (161) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2014
Pours somewhat hazy yellow with a fairly big white quickly dissipating foam leaving some minor lacings. Aroma is fresh tropical fruit, pine, zest, mango. Taste is quite wattery, with tropical fruits and a moderate bitterness lingering. Light body, medium carbo. High drinkability.

Vestergaard (373) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2014
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours light, clear Golden. Aroma has lots of fruits like pear, peach and some berries. Citra hops shines through. Taste has some weak, watery malts, but lots of Nice, fruity hops. Again this slightly unripe pear, the peach and a nice, crisp bitterness, and a lively carbonation. Nice and easy drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A great beer with a great name. Very refreshing and smooth as far as an IPA goes.

MSBrindbergs (334) - Solna, SWEDEN - SEP 15, 2014
Burk från Crille, tack! Klar gulbrun vätska, tjockt vitt skum. Doftar citrus med en lätt granskogston. Lätt sötma som sköljs över av bitterhet. Den lägre alkoholhalten gör att den saknar fyllighet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

adodo (64) - Riga, LATVIA - SEP 15, 2014
Strong, hoppy aroma. Amber colour. White head. Medium bitterness but strong bitter aftertaste. Can recognise this is a good beer but bitterness is a bit too much for me.
