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.

Bottle. This came as a shock to me as it was far better than I had expected. In fact it was very nice. Orange appearance with a distinctive fruity flavour and a medium body. Quite original and well worth trying.

corkyrory66 (1361) - 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 ...

jamestulloch (3377) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 10, 2015
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.

McTapps (6448) - Reutlingen, 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 (697) - 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.

Erzengel (7548) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 21, 2014
Dark gold with a very fruity floral nose. The beer starts malty-floral with very fresh hoppy aroma. The mainpart is full & fresh, a bit earthy and dry. Till the end comes a nicely bitter hopped note, that fits in the floral and earthy flavour-profile. --> Nice and floral earthy IPA!! 12/12/12/12
