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.

Clean barley taste with a bit of cream on the open and a clean bittered finish. Avoids being overbittered. Built very simply, but balanced well. As coarse as the style can be without taking a turn for the worse. Very carefully constructed. Buttery, actually.

Silvan7 (852) - Samarate, ITALY - JUN 30, 2015
Bottle@ home. Ambrata limpida, schiuma abbastanza fine persistente. Aroma intenso fruttato agrumato(scorza d’arancio e citrico). Erbaceo da dry hopping. Maltato di caramello e leggerissima tostatura. Amara, luppolata, poi abboccata maltata. Lieve acidità. Calda anche se non alcolica rotonda equilibrata

corkyrory66 (862) - BELGIUM - JUN 29, 2015
Ipa en dry hopping, avec du malt d’orge et du froment, d’un niveau abv de 5,2 %. Couleur doré foncé brillant, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines par centaines partout. Mousse blanche épaisse, crémeuse, qui nappe à 2 mm. Arômes d’un beau malt blanc, pointe de muscade, pointe de pois frais, lentilles, avoine. 1ère bouche souple à la très belle entame maltée, épicée. Arrière-bouche longue, qui développe l’épice. 2ème bouche assez dense, qui vient à l’équilibre. Arrière-bouche où l’épice ressort, sur une déclinaison délicate. 3ème d’une grande profondeur. Arrière-bouche longue, équilibrée. Longueur qui fléchit un peu, mais reste très agréable. Jambes bien marquées, mais courtes. Levure douce, mais très simple. Alcool correct, il œuvre aux saveurs mais sans vigueur. Finale sans vraie surprise. CONCLUSION : un très beau pale ale, situé par ratebeer comme américain, mais que nous laisserons quand même à l’Irlande, puisque c’est bien un « irish pale ale », comme dit sur l’étiquette, et le nom ne prête pas à confusion ...

puredelusion (128) - Lviv, UKRAINE - JUN 12, 2015
0,33 bottle. Pours copper color with medium, mostly lasting white head. Nice head lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits, mango, hay. Flavor is medium to high hoppy bitter, medium sweet. Aftertaste is long and hoppy bitter. Medium body, average carbonation. Pleasant and smooth.

jamaty (1160) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Ambar clara, 3 dedos de espuma. Fuerte aroma floral, con algun toque citrico. Excelente en boca, con un fantastico sabor muy lupulado y un toque final extra amargo pero que deja finalmente un regusto que pide más. Buen cuerpo, y a todas luces una gran muestra de ale, bien se clasifique como Apa o Ipa.

MiP (14442) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2015
KØ15. Good caramelly and piney hop aroma. Almost clear dark golden colour. Small stable white head. The flavour is sweetish and nicely caramelly. Has a medium to high bitterness which is held nicely in check by the sweetness. Good chalky finish. Tastes like a DIPA but perhaps with less alcohol.

Carlowxxx (50) - Carlow, IRELAND - JUN 6, 2015
bottle Exactly how a pale ale should taste like very hoppy beautiful golden color, Strong flavours of bread, grass, citrus and an aftertaste that his zesty and fresh. Leaves a nice and hoppy aftertaste in the mouth that is very powerful and flowery. My other top beer O’Hara’s beer.
