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.

Maris (980) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2014
From a 330ml botttle on 20/8/2014 (batch 095). Pours a relatively clear golden with a small head. has a very pleasant floral, fruity (passionfruit, lychee) aroma with a touch of musk. Flavour wise, there’s oodles of tropical and stone fruit, melon and grassy malt. There’s a pretty firm dash of hops at the back, providing a dry finish. The body is thin and the carbonation lively. Hugely flavoursome for less than 4%, but could be a little more cohesive.

Helder amberkleurig, kleine kraag. Heerlijk hoparoma, veel fruit aks mango en lychee. Smaak is minder overtuigend. Smaakvol genoeg.

Draft - Leave fresh hop and grass. Clear gold with a decent rich white head. Easy drinking and flavorful.

Bottle. Not the best style of beer to export from Scotland half way around the world. Nice enough but would prefer to buy a local version.

Pours yellow with white head. Citrus / grapefruit notes in aroma, hoppy flavour with grapefruit coming through from hops. Not knocked out by this

DuffMan (6632) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle, shared with Robbie. Hazy golden with a lacy white head. Quite a hoppy nose, very vegetal edging toward earthy. Light malt structure makes this quite quaffable, but the hops just aren’t very bright.

HKdIPA (226) - HONG KONG - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle at Big Bite (post-co-setup!). A bit skeptical of the 3.8% but smells great - aroma is fresh piney hops with some citrus too. Taste is surprisingly full flavored and though it's clearly light in everything, it doesn't feel empty like some session IPAs and similar beers. Very crisp and refreshing. Smooth palate, a bit watery. Bitter finish. Very impressive for such a light beer - would be great for BBQ or beach.
