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.

from Mondial de la Bière 2013, Mulhouse - clear blond-bornze beer with a little foam left; a fair hoppy aroma with spicy and flowery dominance; medium-bodied, velvety and pretty tasty; light earthy and pretty bitter; long spicy hoppy finish with resiney notes - very drinkable

garthicus (2661) - 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 (5666) - 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 (610) - 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 (703) - 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.

omhper (19309) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2010
Bottled, from Bull and Castle, Dublin. Clear deep golden, rich airy head. Aroma of lychee and pear. Freshly hoppy and fairly sweet with well rounded doughy malt. Growing bitterness. Pleasantly hop aromatic, though a bit sweet to be truly drinkable.

sebletitje (6624) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2011
50cl bottle @ Bull and Castle, Dublin. Thanks Dave. Dorée claire, col blanc. Une bière citronnée ayant les bonnes qualités d’une IPA avec ce petit côté irlandais. Le dry-hopping donne une bonne note herbeuse au palais avec une très bonne balance entre amertume et un profile malt qui se veut discret. Un côté fruité de citron, agrumes et pamplemousse viennent agrémenter la dégustation. Une très bonne surprise.
