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.

ryanscourt (713) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2014
Flight done at Brewers Corner in Kilkenny. Samples healthy portion, 8 oz. Tasty notes as follows: Irish Stout: coffee, dry, tasty Irish Pale Ale: good pun on name, good flavor, nice hop balance Irish Red: strong alcohol flavor, finish is taste of pool water, hard to finish, biased against style in general, had in nitro as well which was more enjoyable Helles Lager: crisp, mild hop finish Natural Blonde: drinkable, koslh-esque? Leann Follain: Barrel aged flavor, enjoyable like most irish dry stouts Double IPA: Boozy, strong hop flavor, not up there with the good ones Widow Retro Pale Ale: conservative, middle of the road, not offensive but not great Amber Adventure: tastes similar to pale ale, hops present and noticeable, bitter, caramel malt Winter Star: spicy, winer holiday flavor

Erzengel (2399) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 21, 2014
Dark gold with a very fruity floral nose. The beer starts malty-floral with very fresh hoppy aroma. The mainpart is full & fresh, a bit earthy and dry. Till the end comes a nicely bitter hopped note, that fits in the floral and earthy flavour-profile. --> Nice and floral earthy IPA!! 12/12/12/12

Mam wrażenie jakbym odrobinę skunksa czuł. Do tego klimaty trawiaste. Złote, przejrzyste, praktycznie bez piany.

A very nice and easy drinker that is still a little different from most pale ales witch makes it a nice change. Aroma is dry,hoppy and sweet but malts are in the show case. A medium to lite body beer with a nice sharp finsh that is dry and a little bitter.
