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.

Bière de couleur blonde légèrement foncé est très légèrement trouble Au nez on va sentir les agrumes (citron pamplemousse ) Bouche on va sentir des notes de pamplemousse et le blond est bien présent une bonne amertume pour un taux d'alcool si bas !! Une bière légère vraiment sympa qui a du goût!

BierMeHoos (295) - Maryland, USA - JAN 14, 2015
12oz bottle. Appearance is hazy golden orange. Aroma is grapefruit, dank bud, lemony. Taste is bitter and citrusy. Palate is medium body. It's like an English IPA hopped with American style. Not a fan favorite.

teorn88 (3555) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2015
eg at Norseman Temple Bar, Dublin. It pours a light golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is quite malty and grainy, lightly hoppy, with notes of grains, bread, herbs and citrus. Taste is similarly medium malty and lightly hoppy, with more notes of biscuit, bread, dried leaves, citrus peel and grass. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, not vibrantly hoppy as some APAs but still enjoyable

CraftyBeerTour (119) - Barcelon, SPAIN - JAN 7, 2015
50cl bottle. Zesty, floral aroma followed by some sweet biscuit. Hazy dark gold capped by frothy white head, laces nicely. Rich malty aftertaste as well as refreshing hop bitterness. Carbonation is brisk in the mouth. A good pale ale.

adamnowek (557) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2014
Lots of citrus and grassy. Not super drying in terms of how your tongue feels after a sip. Pretty good.
