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

On draught at the crafty fox, limerick. Great citrus smell and bursting with a strong, hoppy flavour. Packs quite a punch as well!

McTapps (2995) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2013 Was very happy when I found this new (well, new to me) beer at my favorite bottle shop today for two reasons: "New" and an APA. I still have dozens of Belgian Ales and other Belgian beer at home, but my mouth screamed loud out for another style than this for days now. This one comes with a clear amber colour, low head and medium body. Nose of fresh hops and spices. Taste of aromatic hops, pink and white pepper, thyme, herbs, spices like coriander, grass and light honey. Quite bitter and very dry finish. After I had some other beers of this brewery earlier in the year and they all were around average and boring, this one quite surprised me. Very refreshing, easy to drink and just great.

Majek (271) - Ząbki, POLAND - NOV 10, 2013
Clear, golden colour with low and quickly diminishing head. Intensive aroma of citrus and malts. Taste is malty on the beginning, after that appears strong and long pleasant bitterness. Moderate carbonation. Maybe it’s not outstanding beer, but really tasty.

garthicus (2594) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 20, 2011
Bottle. Appearance: Golden orange with a decent bubbly white head. Aroma: hoppy, with lemon, lime and heather. Smells great. Flavour: bitter hops, nice lemon zest, pine, quite a good amount of carbonation, would pair wonderfully with a curry, long bitter and dry finish. Very good.

ogivlado (5402) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 28, 2011
Bottled 500ml. -from Kuća Piva, Zagreb. Finally after I don’t know how much time (probably 10 or more months) I’ll rate this beer. Dark orange coloured, medium to big sized off-white head, aromatic hoppy nose with hint of caramel. Moderate malty, pleasant aromatic hoppy and very fruity with mild notes of caramel. Dry hoppy finish. Very nice beer.

CanCrusher (511) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - FEB 27, 2012
Copper/orange colour, almost without head. Typical IPA smell, but not too intensive - hay, citrus (grapefruit), pine. Bitter taste and aftertaste with long duration. It doesn’t disappoint, but I’ve expected a bit more from it.

StilleStorm (474) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 28, 2013
Pours hazy amber with nice lastinh white head. Froral, fruity, citrus and malty aroma. Taste much the same with malty bitterness. Not sure about the balance in this one. Bitter, lasting finish. A sure re-rate.

It has a wonderful hoppy, citrus and floral smell. It is a light golden color with a medium bodied head. It has a hoppy taste with a floral dominance.
