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.

Bygers (868) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2012
Bottle 0,5l. Pours a clear golden beer with a white head. The aroma is of bitter hops. The flavor follows the nose with additional bitterness. The palate is sweet and bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ciaranc (985) - 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.

TET (1761) - FINLAND - OCT 6, 2012
A yellow beer with a almost medium and blond head. Aroma is fresh and fruitfull, some tropical fruits, peaches, mangos and fructose. Taste is biscuity, citrusfruits, some caramell and grapefruity sourness, quite dry and slightly herbal aftertaste. Medium bodied, slightly biting carbonation, fresh to drink. Fresh, citrusfruity and easy beer.

espenra (884) - Kurland, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2012
On tap at Naboen. Hazy light orange colour with a small white head. Aroma has floral notes as well as some hops. Some bread as well. Flavour is dry with notes of bread, hops, some grapefruit and sweet malty notes. Short aftertaste. A decent Pale Ale but nothing spectacular.

ElDesmadre (1716) - Mikołów, POLAND - SEP 19, 2012
Bottle. Light hazy golden with a medium head. Very hoppy aroma - citrus, pine, citrus, pine,... and grapefruit. Oh, some apple esters seem to be in here as well. Very nice. Dry body countered by a light oiliness of the hops. Decidedly hoppy flavour with a very bitter finish and an aftertaste of pine, citrus, earth and grass. Very tasty hop bomb from Ireland.

A tasty refreshing drink. Easy to knock back and has a decent alcohol percentage to boot ;-)
