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.

Pinball (10770) - Copenhagen, - MAY 9, 2013
25cl bottle from kvickly spinderiet, shared with Gitte. Clear dark yellow, huge offwhite slightly flufft head. strong hoppy aroma, citrussy, flowery, not sweet, lots of flowery and citrussy hops. Flavor is bitter hoppy, quite bitter, some malts, but not lots of them. Taste is a bit flattish or one dimensional probably due to the low abv, but the beer is pretty refreshing and tasty. would do great as a session beer.

Tap@ Alehouse Riga. Troebel geelbruin, mooie plakkraag. Citrusfruit in smaak en geur, grapefruitig. Goede bittere nasmaak. Helaas ook wat weinig body.

Jado (514) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - AUG 25, 2014
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a clear orange-amber with a small sudsy white head and lively carbonation. Aromas of passionfruit, lime, guava, lemon zest and rockmelon. Taste is lightly sweet at first but a burst of tropical fruit washes through along with a zesty citrus prickle. Clean finish with a lightly fruity aftertaste. Beautifully balanced and totally more-ish.

Wolfbass (903) - Firenze, ITALY - AUG 23, 2014
Mi è garbata parecchio, bella fruttata esotica al naso, e con una buona beva, calibrata e pulita.

Taboada (311) - Compostela (Galiza), - AUG 22, 2014
330 mml bottle tasted on 22/08/2014. Hazy golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma is fruity and malty but no intense. Taste is hops, fruits and malts but light. Aftertaste is light dry. Next one please!

totoro76 (15) - SPAIN - AUG 20, 2014
Es una bajo alcohol decentilla, pero me gustaba más antes,quizás por la propia cerveza o la evolución de mi gusto. El lúpulo me sabe demasiado a hierba cortada. Bien hecha, pero sin mucha gracia

Maris (983) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2014
From a 330ml botttle on 20/8/2014 (batch 095). Pours a relatively clear golden with a small head. has a very pleasant floral, fruity (passionfruit, lychee) aroma with a touch of musk. Flavour wise, there’s oodles of tropical and stone fruit, melon and grassy malt. There’s a pretty firm dash of hops at the back, providing a dry finish. The body is thin and the carbonation lively. Hugely flavoursome for less than 4%, but could be a little more cohesive.

MaartenRF10 (1586) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2014
Helder amberkleurig, kleine kraag. Heerlijk hoparoma, veel fruit aks mango en lychee. Smaak is minder overtuigend. Smaakvol genoeg.

Draft - Leave fresh hop and grass. Clear gold with a decent rich white head. Easy drinking and flavorful.
