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.

Flemishgael (6) - Carrigaline, IRELAND - MAY 19, 2013 does not count
Exactly how a pale ale should taste like. Very, very hoppy due to dry hopping. Floral and zesty. Poors a beautiful golden colour, a steady foamy head and has a hay yeasty aroma. Strong flavours of bread, grass, citrus and an aftertaste that his zesty and fresh. Leaves a nice and hoppy aftertaste in the mouth that is very powerful and flowery. My favourite O’Hara’s beer.

DocLock (8005) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Bottles from Wegman’s Collegeville and Capone’s. Pours clear gold with huge white frothy head. Nose is pale malt, noble hops, black pepper. Tastes hoppy, pale malty, with notes of pineapple, tangerine, and some off metallic notes in the finish. OK, but not a repeater for the Good Doctor.

kathouse (1058) - Nevada, USA - MAY 11, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2013 Mild amber in color with a good head of foam. This was a nice English style IPA with plenty of noble hop aroma. There was a small amount of citrus in the nose and taste. Well balanced and tasty. Good finish as well. Pleased with this. Note: the tap in Dublin was a better version than the bottled.
