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.

LazyPyro (431) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2016 500ml bottle. Very clear golden colour with a small creamy white head. Aroma is hoppy, malty, doughy/bready - not too keen on that part. Flavour is also very hoppy with a fruity bitterness, citrusy finish.

bhensonb (13732) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 13, 2015
Bottle from Dart at Stateline. Pours bright gold with a large creamy white head. Citrus aroma. Med body with a lot of carbonation that left quickly. Flavor is citrus, sort of grapefruit rind, sort of zesty, with some malt support that’s a bit different from what I usually find. Drinks easily.

Galootuk (1) - Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2015 does not count
35cl bottle. Floral aroma, sparking golden appearance. Frothy head that dissapeared after a few minutes. Medium bitter taste with a lovely floral base and a slight citrus hint. Overall a really nice beer one I would have again.

themightylazza (108) - - DEC 9, 2015
Pale golden ale, well hopped aroma, there is a grapefruit undertone to the malty palate, the finish is hopped but slightly metallic. Not unpleasant, but it doesn’t win any awards for me.

spacecube (1562) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2015
Bottle, pours hazy gold brown, small bubbly head which doesn’t last. Aroma is light medium cereal & biscuit malt, pretty hoppy, with a mixture of traditional & new world hops, orange marmalade with grapefruit. The finish is long and bitter, a bit unbalanced maybe, but I quite liked it
