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.

lusikka (6049) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 27, 2012
Draught @ O’Hara’s, Tampere.
Pours a deep copper colour with a white thick head. Aroma of sweet malts, bubblegum and grains. Flavour of grassy hops with some floral notes, hay, bubblegum-like sweetness. Medium bodied and a dry and grainy finish. Too sweet and the hop profile is a bit weird.

On tap at Revolver, Oslo. Hazy brown, smooth, refreshing, clean bitterness that lasts for a long time.

Sizzler80 (447) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 2, 2012
Dark golden pour with a white head and lacing. Dominant aromas of hops and barley with slight pine and grass. Medium carbonation. Its slightly dry and bitter from the hops. Not a huge amount to it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CanCrusher (603) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - FEB 27, 2012
Copper/orange colour, almost without head. Typical IPA smell, but not too intensive - hay, citrus (grapefruit), pine. Bitter taste and aftertaste with long duration. It doesn’t disappoint, but I’ve expected a bit more from it.

Finn (4032) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2012
Flaske 0,5l fra Vinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget. Gyldenbrun med et høyt bobleskum som varer en god stund. Fester seg litt til glasset. God fruktig aroma med innslag av bær. Myk munnfølelse. Litt oljeaktig. Smaken er dominert av bitterhet med en undertone av tørr frukt. Avslutter tørt.

laiti (5570) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2012
50 cl bottle @ O’Hara’s Freehouse. Rated on 06.05.2011
Aroma is fresh with hops, grass and citrus notes. Flavour has hay, some citrus and hints of grass. Nice and dry, although I like my APAs more hoppy.

ACD (621) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 20, 2012
Keg pint. Pours light amber with small white head- medium to low level of carbonation. Aroma of pine and slight citrus - mediocre. Taste of bitter citrus, slight floral and reasonable malt backbone - not going crazy for it to be honest. Lingering pleasant bitterness in aftertaste. A decent safe option for hopheads in ireland if nothing else is available on draught. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Defreni (2580) - Husum, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2012
Flaske: Gulorange klar øl med et fint skumhoved. Duft af blomstret humle og en smule malt. Smagen er udmærket, men for domineret af den typisk engelske blomstring der gør at øllen ikke er drikbar i større mængder for denne gane, hvilket ødelægger formålet med øllen en smule.
