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. Thatís 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.

whoisghost (21) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 22, 2014
Looks fine, light golden colour, nice thick head with reasonable lacing. Smells beautiful - very floral and sweet. Tastes ok, pine with a malty/nutty after. Is reasonable thin, but to be expected - good carbonation and subtle coating.

Jacamus (7) - Beverley, East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2014 does not count
Beautiful copper in the glass. Aromas of dank mango and tropical fruit. Biscuit and nutty malt character, tempered by bitterness and that dank tropical hop note. Body is great for a low abv beer, lots of residual sugar in this. Really good low abv option on a night out.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2014
2014-06-28. Crisp dark yellow body with a small white head. 3+ Aroma is mild, pale malt, sort of floral hops. Flavour is lightly bitter throughout, floral hops and light lemon. Average to light bodied palate, soft carbonation. Quaffable but on the mild side.On tap at BrewDog, Glasgow

Iznogud (618) - CROATIA - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle, 330 ml from Za Popenít, Ljubljana. Pours golden with white head. Fruity and slightly hoppy aroma and flavor. Interesting and easy drinkable.

Dgkiz (10) - GREECE - JUL 13, 2014
Amber colour. Thick white head. The aroma hits straight away with citrus fruits, hops, mango. Hoppy taste with sweet and fruity notes. Well balanced for a low alcohol beer.

Alla spina @ la belle alliance (Milano). Brewdog delude difficilmente. Birra con vari sentori, fra agrumi e pompelmo.

Can from Mane Liquor. Super fresh, aromatic and the perfect session beer. Definitely one of the tastiest low alcohol beers Iíve 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 (553) - 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.
