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.

Dark golden beer with sizable head. Aroma is strong with pine and mango. Body is thin obviously. Taste is much like the aroma, but passes quickly. Dry and bitter finish.

Vells (548) - LATVIA - APR 23, 2014
Decent maltiness, light caramel, quite intense hops, pleasantly piney. Moderate sweet with moderate bit dry bitterness in finish. Yes, it is quite simple, but for 3.8 ABV, surprisingly rich

skortila (4349) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2014
Bottled. 0, 15l sample. The aroma has pineapple, peach, some grass and I get a lot of veggie tones. Clear, golden coloured beer with a thin white head. The taste its moderate bitter, slight grainy and quite hoppy. The hoparoma is big but really not too pleasant.

wihlan (134) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 19, 2014
Flaska hemma hos föräldrarna i solen. Frisk beska och ölet har en fin kopparton. Tyvärr är kroppen något tunn skulle velat ha lite mer malt smak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Apart aroma die smaakt naar exotisch. Makkelijk drinkbaar uit de fles en zeer licht qua alcohol. Overall een mooi bier voor eens een keer wat anders.
