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.

spacecube (1483) - 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

Look; pale amber golden clear beer with off white modest top. Aroma; pine, fruity resin, perfume, flowers, sweetness. Taste; hops, roasted malts, mild resin, lots of fruit peels, sour peaches - leading to a nice juicy finish. Normal on palate. Really nice brew. [50cl bottle @BlåRock Tromsø]
