COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg& bottles, regular.Dry hopped for extra aroma, this pale ale has a light malt base with just the right mouthfeel to allow the hop character to predominate. Grapefruit like bitterness is full and lasting and is balanced by a zesty citrus burst of aroma from two late additions of cascade hops.

Bottle. Golden pour, slight haze, thin white head that disperses fairly quickly. Nice malty aroma, caramel, biscuit, and a fair bit of citrus. Taste is similar, base of malt with a decent dose of bitterness.

King_Alex_II (109) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 29, 2014
Hoppy smell and taste with matching, not too aggressive bitterness with slight citrus flavors. A bit flat aftertaste with the same taste. All together a very solid IPA.

brnandersen (2031) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2014
Draught at The Shamrock Inn, Cph. Slightly hazy golden colour with a thin, white head. Fruity aroma with grasses, citrus, biscuits malts, some peach and pines. Taste is bitter. Medium body with a lively carboantion and a creamy texture. Finishes rather dry and bitter with fruits and pale malts. Would be rather good with a bit richer malt bill. Otherwise an enjoyable and straightforward Pale Ale.
