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.

0.5L bottle, medium head with some lacing that lasts for a very long time, clear deep gold colour, aroma of frius and herbs, flavour of citrus and herbs with strong bitterness that develops to an extremely long bitter aftertaste, the effects of the dry hopping are quite noticable. Nice session ale

500ml bottle at Amundsen Bryggeri & Spiseri. Hazy golden, lightly beige head. Citrus and grassy hops to the nose. Hoppy taste with lemon and orange nicely balanced with toasted malts. Satisfying dry bitter end. Drinks well and carries fine refreshments (Oslo, 03.04.2011).

sebletitje (6326) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2011
50cl bottle @ Bull and Castle, Dublin. Thanks Dave. Dorée claire, col blanc. Une bière citronnée ayant les bonnes qualités d’une IPA avec ce petit côté irlandais. Le dry-hopping donne une bonne note herbeuse au palais avec une très bonne balance entre amertume et un profile malt qui se veut discret. Un côté fruité de citron, agrumes et pamplemousse viennent agrémenter la dégustation. Une très bonne surprise.

Sigmund (4814) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 1, 2011
500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5.2%. Dry hopped. Golden colour, big white head. Strong fruity / citrussy aroma of Cascade and Amarillo hops, some hints of stale / rotting citrus peel too. The flavour is also citrussy and zesty, with a proper bitterness in the finish. Quite good.
