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.

Light copper color, light citrus aroma, light foam, lasting. Light taste, hoppy, citrusy. Refreshing, easy to drink but nothing special.

lello4ever (103) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2015
Bionda come una lager, questa APA ha una nota molto amara dovuta al luppolo e tende al secco. Si beve senza complimenti.

johndoughty (4133) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle. This came as a shock to me as it was far better than I had expected. In fact it was very nice. Orange appearance with a distinctive fruity flavour and a medium body. Quite original and well worth trying.

massingasetta (330) - München, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2015
A masterfully well brewed beer that has a perfect look and inviting smell of hop and malt. The first swallow brings about a really good bitterness. This beer encompasses the comfiness of Ireland in a beer. Really great beer that hits the taste buds where it should.

Ottima ipa irlandese che mantiene tutti i canoni classici con note leggermente agrumate e un erbaceo molto persistente. Ottima beverinità. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

Ok beer too have a pint or two. Tasty but bit watery, some hop/honey aftertaste and little bit of bitterness. Ok!

PorterPounder (5829) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 24, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2015 11.2. oz bottle. Hazy, dark orange pour, slight snow white head that clings to the edge of the glass. Aroma has yeasty accents, a touch of bread-like spice. Flavor has some yeasty accents, some peach and apricot fruitiness, a touch of vanilla. Mouthfeel has a decent thickness and spritz to it. Thanks to Aurelius for the trade!

Aurelius (4498) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Sweet, floral, honey malt aroma with some female sweat. Misty, reddish gold. Standard longneck, clean label. Crisp, a bit lemony, a little mineral. Hops apparent bot not very stiff. Carbonation on the lower side. Eh. Beer Stop.
