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.

JorisPPattyn (7771) - Antwerpen, - NOV 17, 2012
Yellow head, fading to transparant over very slightly hazed orange beer, well-carbonated. Very powerful nose of citrus and other exotic fruit (passion- and grapefruit especially). Very iniviting smell. Pure fruity hops; exotic fruit, citrus, hopoils galore, hence pretty bitter, in the most fruity way. Obviously light body, spritzy, but very refreshing and packed with flavour. Yet another low-alcohol gem. England did it always, now Italy, France, Netherlands and here Scotland can do it too - WTBH can’t Belgian brewers do more similar things?

Bottle. Orange golden pour with white head. Light sweet citrus and herbal spice aromas. Flavors follow, pretty full flavor for a lower ABV beer.

wimpyjoe (3468) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. Golden-amber with a very thin head. Lots of hops, citrus and tropical fruits. A touch tangy in the palate and tasty.

SimonBeer (92) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2014
(Drinking date: 4 July 2014) Golden-amber coloured clear beer with a frothy head of foam. Delicious aroma, really intense hoppy aroma. Especially citrus (grapefruit) in the taste. However, the aromas made me think this would be a great beer, but when I tasted it, it dissapointed me. The beer is too watery, there is no intense taste. The hops are really present actually, but the body is too watery. Medium carbonation. Still good ipa. Total score 3.6!

ejr (49) - Sarpsborg, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2014
Fin oransje farge med et hvit skum som hang fint i glassveggen. Aroma av malt, gress, grapefrukt, furu og modene frukter. Smaken er søtere enn det aromaen skulle tilsi, fin bitterhet i avsluttningen og en ettersmak som sitter en liten stund.

ramboraffe (297) - SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2014
330 ml can. Hazy orange with white head. Smell is bitter citrus zest, grapefruit, pine and some sweet fruit. Taste is sweet fruity with bitter grapefruit. A bit thin watery body that does not really balance the bitterness. Dry and low carbonated.

henkjanwiegers (116) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2014
Pours a yellow-orange color with an offwhite head. Aroma of grapefruit and passion fruit. Some lime freshness and some planty taste. Taste is bitter and fruity, low on carbonation and a little sweet. The body is a little thin, but the aftertaste is longlasting. Nice and easily drinkable beer.

Toomio (162) - Joensuu, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Brewdogin valikoiman tähän asti parhaan jälkimaun jättävä olut. Paljon aromia, ei liian vahva, mutta aromin makuinen ilman katkeruutta. Ihan hyvä.

Zekada (39) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2014
Can from systembolaget. Smell is sweet with hops, citrus and flowers. It pours a bright yellow colour with a medium white head. The taste I bland and boring and it smells more than it actually tastes, with a subtle hopiness. A thin palate and a short taste. A decent beer on warm occasions. Serve well chilled

TrefwoordPunk (797) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2014
Draft at Leids bierfestival. Pours a clear golden with a white head and an aroma of oranges, other citrus fruits, hops and grapefruit (lots of it!). The taste is slight to medium sweet with lots of hops and a long bitter finish. Really nice!

NordicV (1082) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2014
Orange öl med vitt skum. Doft av grapefrukt och aprikos. I smaken tillkommer toner av blommig humle och tallbarr. Bra balanserad beska. Trevlig sessionöl.
