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. 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.

Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, - NOV 10, 2012
0,33l bottle from CsakajůsŲr, 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 canít be really felt. Intensive, "kick ass" hoppy one. Easily drinkable, light beer.

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.

Deep golden liquid, porous foam of good lacing. Fruity aroma of great amount. Bittersweet taste. Medium body. Good in spite of the stupid name

Intense hoppy aroma mild and pleasant. Thin slightly bitter with stronger bitter aftertaste but no density. Refreshing

CloakedDagger (595) - - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear golden with an off-white head. Lovely fresh hop aroma, cat pee-ish - must be the Citra. Actually even medium-bodied, some sweet malt notes but really dominated by the fresh and juicy hops without being bitter at all. A great Session IPA indeed. 130914

robto (9) - Belas, PORTUGAL - SEP 12, 2014 does not count
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2014 33cl bottle from "cerveteca" bar in Lisbon. It pours a gold color with a moderate but persistent white head. Aroma is full of hops and pines with some orange and grapefruit. Taste is hops, citrus and with a hint of malt at the end. Although there is a little sweet in the beginning, it is quickly overpowered by the strong bitterness. It is lively carbonated with a medium body and a dry finish. This is one of the most interesting beers Iíve yet tasted. Thatís a good hoppy beer with a high drinkability. Very tasty and refreshing.

adasko (317) - Poznan, POLAND - SEP 11, 2014
Strong hoppy aroma, full of grapefruit and other yellow tropical fruits. Itís slightly hazy, golden color, with small head. Taste is strictly bitter. There is no sweetness at all in it, itís dry. Has very small body, itís rather watery. Itís very drinkable, very refreshing. In overall itís good and very hoppy beer but it the same time itís so so light!

vipinvelp (2172) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 8, 2014
Opaque orange, small fading foam head. Strong hoppy aroma and likewise taste. That is all there is to it, bitterness. But good. Lasting aftertaste, bitter again. (Moscow 201409)

g_georgiou (217) - CYPRUS - SEP 6, 2014
Hazy orange body with a medium white head. Aroma is peach, grapefruit, citrus, orange, hoppy, pine. Taste is medium sweet with medium to heavy bitterness. Medium body, lively carbonation, astringent finish. For a Session IPA with only 3.8 alcohol this is quite interesting.
