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): Pours an amber with a medium, slightly off white head. Aroma of grapefruit, mango and malt. Sweet malty backbone with lovely punching hop tastes, grapefruit, mango, passionfruit notes. Very good for the abv.

The smelled hyped this up for me big time. It didn’t bring my hopes crashing down to taste it but I was a wee bit dismayed. Looks and palate wise it is fine indeed, copper, white head and a medium body with mid carbonation. Huge notes of pineapple, white grapefruit and mango mixed with biscuity caramel malts hose the nose down. Mid gulp/swish I always seem to get some strange, not necessarily awful, taste of cheese slices. Not strong enough to be absolutely off putting but still present, it is affecting an otherwise very enjoyable session beer for me.

Belle robe blonde très dorée et limpide qui tire presque sur l’ambre claire.Mousse blanche, fine, peu. Bouquet d’houblons aromatiques au nez, cher à Brewdog (mais surtout cher à ses aficionados !) Nez de fleurs printanières, prairie verdoyante, agrumes, poires, passiflore, grenadille : fruits "frais". Au goût on y retrouve tout, en peut-être moins décapant.Tout est assez léger et équilibré (parfaitement).Du coup, le malt domine un peu plus que chez sa grande soeur "Punk".Très doux, très frais, petite amertume sur la fin sans trop de sécheresse ni d’astringence.Superbe "Session" !

From 33cl bottle. Nose like smell after citric fruits, honey and flowers, taste a bit fruity a light dark chocolate, but fades soon. Above average!

androman (452) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2014
33cl bottle @ home from Csak a Jó Sör, Budapest. Body is clear, amber, Head is small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing, fair lacing. Nose is tons of citrus, light caramel, Aroma is biscuit, tropical fruits, light orange peel, light steamed vegetables, decent hops. Taste is medium sweet, medium hoppy bitter Finish is fruity and hoppy bittersweet, medium duration. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation. Easy dessert beer, slightly refreshing, great flavor regarding to the ABV.

Dark gold carbonate. Taste is bittersweet and fruity but quite astonishing. Finish is more bitter than the initial taste. Good carbonation on the lips.

guzgorog (297) - FRANCE - OCT 22, 2014
Blonde dorée translucide, un peu de mousse blanche qui se fait rapidement oublier. Nez fruité intense de fruits exotiques : fruits de la passions, mangue, kiwi, mandarine, pamplemousse, léger côté floral. La bouche est sur les agrumes : pamplemousse, citron, mandarine, léger côté caramel. L’amertume est bien présente, peu de corps, peu d’alcool, peu de complexité. Une belle bière rafraichissante !

CacheManyHose (207) - HONG KONG - OCT 20, 2014
Wonderfully flavourful for a pale ale/session beer with a 3.8 ABV. Nose has lots of fruit, florals, malt, caramel/honey, a bit of yeast and spice. Taste is light-bodied but crisp and hoppy. Reminds me of the Brewdog Punk IPA with everything dialled a little down and the hoppiness dialled a lot down.

Bottle. Hazy golden pour, with a small white head. Very nice nose, hoppy with significant floral and citrus notes. Taste is hoppy, with a hint of grapes. Medium body, long medium bitter finish. Average carbonation. Quite good IPA.

I was not too pleased with this IPA. It was a bit too bitter for my taste and found too little to discover in it’s aroma. Very mediocre.
