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.

PsychoGunnar (29) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 10, 2013
Lava lamp-coloured with ephemeral foam. Smells of green apples and white wine. Tastes of hops, with hints of brussel sprouts and green grapes. The aftertaste is hoppy and stays for a long time, reminiscent of cigarette smoke.

Bottle at home - but will look out for version on tap when next in those parts (Dublin) where it can be gotten. Good bitterness and clean refreshing taste

ciaranc (706) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 1, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 Pours a deep gold, nice white head. Soft hopped nose, some fresh grass and hay. Nothing overwhelming. Nice smooth english hop/pale ale style bitterness in the flavour. Finish is malty. A nicely done pale ale, nice to have one with isnt murdered with hops. Re-rated, they appear to have tweaked the receipe - way more hop forward and a pronounced biscuit malt, mouth feel as smooth as you like. Fantastic.
