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.

Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is citrusy with some hints of elderflower. Taste is fruity and balanced at first and gets quite bitter at the end. Very nice, easy drinking pale ale.

Bottle shared with Linh and Scarlett whilst in Ireland. Pours a clear golden body with thin white lacing. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of bright grains, bitter crisp hop profile and spice. Not overpowering with malt, but tastes stale.

Bottle at The Gaffe, Dubrovnik. Clear golden body with a faint white head. Steady carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of lemon, underripe peach and grass. Flavour of orange pith, lemon and lime. Medium body with an oily texture. Light fizz. Crisp and hoppy - an unexpected treat.

Silvan7 (862) - 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 (885) - 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 ...

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 (1230) - 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.
