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.

Draught at Ölrepubliken on November 12, 2012. During the BrewDog tap take over/week.
Clear copper color, dense yellow head. Sweet, caramel, hoppy, citrus, pine taste. Rather well balanced and tasty. Smooth yet a bit spritzy mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Pine aftertaste. Citrus, hoppy, herbal scent.
I like tasty low ABV beers and I like hoppy but not overly bitter beers, so all in all I like this beer!

Bijl (119) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2016
Oranje/geel, iets waas, geel.witte schuimkraag die snel zakt. Aroma: Citrus, limoen, tropisch en iets mout. Smaak: Citrus, grapefruit, fruitig, citruscake, iets pijnboom, mouten... iets kruidig. Een subtiel nabitter en iets kruidig en limoenschil op het einde.... vrij kort. Mondgevoel is redelijk zacht met aardig wat CO2 die nog voor wat aktie zorgt. Een verfrissende subtiele hoppy pale ale.... hier kun je er wel een paar van op.

Draft at Brew Dog-Birmingham, 6/1/16. Orange, beige head. Drippy lace. Clean, bitter flavor. Minimal malt back. Very clean and sessionable. Pretty dry, quick close. Could drink a ton of this.

Fules (500) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 10, 2016
Habja szinte alig. Színe gyönyörű, mély borostyán. Az illata rendkívüli, nagyon erős gyümölcsös, citrusos, almás jellegű, már-már almaborra emlékeztető. Az íze enyhén citrusos. Azonnal érezhető egy határozott gyantás keserűsség egy pici olajossággal, ami folyamatosan fennmarad a hosszú utóíze végéig. Testes, ugyanakkor gyenge sör.

younghomer (7) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2016 does not count
Punchy aroma of zest, mint, apple & hops. Fresh feeling. Citrus, lemongrass and malt dominate the taste. Appealing metallic, lemongrass and sherbert aftertaste. Dry on the palate with strong carbonation. This would be a welcome accompaniment to barbecue food. Summery and uplifting.

Lots of flavor packed into 3.8%! Beautiful hop profile and a decent body makes it super sessionable. Great brew to have around for BBQs/gatherings.
