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.

A hoppy ale, both in aroma and taste, but some fruity sweetness to balance it out. (Bottle)

ACD (634) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 20, 2012
Keg pint. Pours light amber with small white head- medium to low level of carbonation. Aroma of pine and slight citrus - mediocre. Taste of bitter citrus, slight floral and reasonable malt backbone - not going crazy for it to be honest. Lingering pleasant bitterness in aftertaste. A decent safe option for hopheads in ireland if nothing else is available on draught. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

_BaR_ (19) - Padova, ITALY - JUN 19, 2013
Aroma di luppolo evidente ma non aggressivo e non molto fruttato. Al gusto ha corpo leggero e facilmente bevibile. Predomina fortemente il luppolo che lascia sul finale una nota amara persistente e piacevole.

På fat. Detta är en välhumlad, men från sötma väl balanserad APA. Något tunn kropp för ett högre smakbetyg. I doften inslag av citron, gröna äpplen, fläder och persika. Grape, lime, persika och karamell i smaken. Något kolsyrig munkänsla.
