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.

0.5 bottle. Clear, gold color and a big, white head. Fresh, fruity and floral aroma seems to come from dry hopping - relatively nice and sweet. Taste is just like the description reads - malty backbone with enough hops to let them take over the sensation. Medium body, slick texture, and average carbonation. Finish is also hoppy but again not excessively. Overall the beer is pretty good and well-balanced - something I find very important in a brew.

0.5l. Pours a fast dissapearing head. Nice smell of citrus. Extra bitter and it lasts. Nice taste addition of citrus, grapefruit comes to mind because of bitterness. Good beer if you like and can handle bitterness.

En let jævnt kedelig oplevelse, der på trods af den lovende aroma skuffer smags og synsmæssigt, da den på disse fronter minder aller mest om en pilsner - øv!

trotwood (28) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle. Blurred lemon aroma. Later on, apparent sweet apple. Sweet and watery (only 10.5°P - too little for AIPA). Decent but rather unpleasant bitterness. Unpleasant aftertaste. Overall, weak and not balanced.

Bottle-500ml. Nice, hoppy beer. Drinkable, but not so eager to repeat. Has a little metal taste in it, hardly noticable.From the hops maybe?
