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.

Keg at the Rake. Nose is basically Lipton Ice Tea from a can! Lemon and tea. Cloudy orange flavor. Flavor is lemon, tea, rich malt. Understated and nice.

Kita (1495) - Koper, SLOVENIA - AUG 8, 2015
Bottle, 0.50l, sampled from CanCrusher. Clear deep golden color with medium soapy white head and fair lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, grass, pine and caramel. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel and honey, follows by fruity and herbal notes, while finish is moderate bitter. Medium body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Well balanced surprise from Ireland...

Nonshaugen (75) - Fetsund, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2015
Beautiful clear golden, two to three fingers slightly off-white head, quite thick, creamy foam, nice lacing. Grassy, floral hop aroma. Tremendous big, hoppy bitter taste. Grass, citrus, flowers and pine hit you immediately, but is balanced out by linguering sweet malt notes in the aftertaste. A great beer that deserves a good rating.

ciocanelu (182) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUL 28, 2015
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.
