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.

Can from Mane Liquor. Super fresh, aromatic and the perfect session beer. Definitely one of the tastiest low alcohol beers I’ve ever let slide down my throat. Would drink again. And again.

Dark golden, slightly hazy, with thick head. Scent is of hops and soap. Taste is very hoppy with hints of caramel, malt and mold. Bitter after taste. Crisp carbonation.

McWorta (544) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 12, 2014
Orange/amber in colour with a frothy off white head. Aromas of light black currant and citrusy hop notes develop with light earthy-bread notes are noticeable. With a soft light texture and some sweet malt flavours supported by the citrussy hops makes it a light-medium bodied beer. A thirst quencher. The finish is medium long offering a harmonic balance of hop and malt botes.

thanatosti (868) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2014
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Gall & Gall, Doorn. Amber with a white head. Very hoppy nose with citrus, melon and mango. Good bitterness and a surprisingly thick body considering its low ABV. Nice summer beer.

Marstonlad (391) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2014
Pours amber with a medium-sized white head. The aroma is very fruity; mostly citrus, orange and some exotic notes; not much grass or even maltiness. Taste is medium bitter and overall very fruity; malts provide the background, though. Bitterness does not reach the heights of BrewDogs other pale ales. The palate is fairly light and slick with a moderate carbonation. Nice, fruity ale that is tastier than the low abv would suggest.

BillHick420 (414) - North Dakota, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2014
Pours amber wih a bubbly off white head. Right away, peach on the nose, fruitiness with pine hops. Aroma of the same, plus a mild dried fruit, sweet caramel malts.Good mouth feel.

Great golden color and thick white head. The aroma is really hoppy, exactly as I like it. The taste too, even if quite weak in alcohol and this is pretty obvious. Not enough bitterness in the aftertaste for my taste. Still a good beer, very good for the summer. Fresh

Limpida, di color giallo dorato. Forte aroma di agrume al naso, pompelmo in particolare ma anche leggere note di frutta tropicale. In bocca scivola giů bene, di corpo leggero, molto beverina.
