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.

At Brewdog Camden. Clear amber beer, tidy off white head. Light dry palate. A little crisp but turning softer. Mild minerals. Fresh hops - grass and skunk, pine towards the end. Subtle tropical fruits. Malt turns a little creamy. Dry finish. Good complexity and flavour for a light beer. Satisfying.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 28, 2012
Bottle from La Cave à Bulles, Paris, batch 273, bb 24-08-13
Hazy blond color with a darker shade, medium sized compact head. The aroma is purely hoppy, very pungent and very nice; sweat and fruits. Light mouthfeel, dry, as expected, but with a crispy malt and toffee flavor, and a very pleasant, powerful hopping, not exceeding in bitterness, yet providing quality, resins and fruits.
Excellent medium for quality hops.
