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.

Draught somewhere in Dublin. Lots of hops. So much that it tasted in my mouth more like IPA than APA. Like the description says it is quite bitter.

It has a wonderful hoppy, citrus and floral smell. It is a light golden color with a medium bodied head. It has a hoppy taste with a floral dominance.

StilleStorm (716) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 28, 2013
Pours hazy amber with nice lastinh white head. Froral, fruity, citrus and malty aroma. Taste much the same with malty bitterness. Not sure about the balance in this one. Bitter, lasting finish. A sure re-rate.

On draught at the crafty fox, limerick. Great citrus smell and bursting with a strong, hoppy flavour. Packs quite a punch as well!

maxwelldeux (3664) - Everett, Washington, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear light amber color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is a little grassy, and seems stale to me. Taste is a little bitter, but tastes old and like it’s been sitting on the shelf for a long time. Meh.

Keg @ Kehoes, Dublin [200913]
Pale blonde, clear, thin white head, some lacing
Aroma - Grassy zesty hops, some light sweet malt
Taste os bitter grassy hops, bitter zest, pale sweet malt background, notice the dry hopping, not that fruity, like the sweetness offsetting the dry hop bitterness
Palate - Medium carb, light to medium body, quite stinging resinous dry bitter hops and sweet pale malt, good sharp palate. Finish as main flavour, quite dry, lingering fairly bitter tail.
Overall - Tasted fresh here, good sharp palate...overall I liked it

fdomig (371) - München, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2013
500ml bottle. Aroma is very nice hops, citrus. Appearance is golden with a nice white head. Taste us however unexciting. Bitter. A medium carbonation. A dry and bitter finish. Not very pleasant. Disappointing.
