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.

absolutely delicious, hoppy in the aroma and flavor, very reminiscent of sierra nevadas pale ale, or stones pale ale, west coast in the color and flavor. floral and citrusy with a little grapefruit. very easy to drink, and the direction this brewer should be going in, very good for irish micro brewing.

Exactly how a pale ale should taste like. Very, very hoppy due to dry hopping. Floral and zesty. Poors a beautiful golden colour, a steady foamy head and has a hay yeasty aroma. 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 favourite O’Hara’s beer.

Clear golden colour with creamy thick head. Taste is malty on the beginning, after that appears sweetness. Average carbonation. Really great beer! :)
