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.

pivnizub (9011) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 11, 2013
Bottle: A bit unclear, golden to deep golden, medium-sized loose and stable off-white head, moderate fruity nose with distinctive herbal-lemony hops, some barley detectable; moderate to solid dry bitter flavour, still presenting a shy, subdued sweetness, light to medium bodied; dry fruity-hoppy finish, dominated by flavours of oranges and grapefruits.Guinness? Who needs Guinness…

northropfrye (2310) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 17, 2013
A bit under-rated I think. Amber body, with off white head, nice lacing. Vibrant hoppy aroma. Bitter taste, lots of flavour. A really solid APA in my books.

sfuen03 (351) - Barcelona, SPAIN - NOV 27, 2013
Good white head; low sized bubbles. Amber color transparent liquid. Hoppy, fruity (apple), herbal aroma. Light to medium body; bitter dry finish. Taste is smooth and bitter. Not very complex but amazingly balanced. Apple hints.

kidmartinek (3742) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 19, 2014
33cl bottle. Pours a hazy gold color with a huge 10cm frothy white head. Very frothy, lasting white head. Good balanced malt and hop aroma with mild sweetness and appreciable bitterness. Flavor is tingy. Danky bittersweet, but mostly danky. This is a dank beer. Those northern irish!

Geruch leicht C-hopfigm ansonsten aber vor allem herb. Im Geschmack auch, zum ende hin leicht astringierend. Ein PA ohne massiv C-Hopfen! ;)

BobyFischer (104) - FRANCE - NOV 14, 2014
Pale Ale à l’anglaise : classique et équilibrée.Qui a sa touche d’originalité : subtiles saveurs amères et florales.Jolis arômes dus au "dry hopping" / houblonnage à cru.Plutôt sèche, amère et résineuse que fruitée/florale mais relevée par un subtil houblonnage à cru. Pas trop astingante pour autant. Réussie.

Miksu (4972) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 17, 2010
0.5 l bottle at Vihreä Haltiatar, Jyväskylä. Copper color with good head retention. Tart fruity aroma with flowery and lemony hops. Dry flowery and lemony flavor with notes of minerals. Firm bitterness, very hop-forward beer. Light bodied and drinkable. Fairly close to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

thewolf (11255) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2010
Bottle @ Republikken, Kolding.
Pours clear orange amber with a medium, staying, creamy, off-white head. Good lacings. Aroma has good, fresh hoppiness, peachy. A hint of metal. Low carbonation, a bit light but fine creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is soft, light malty, doughy, light biscuity. Fine fruity and floral hoppiness with a good, bitter bite. Quite delicious.

Sigmund (5313) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 1, 2011
500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5.2%. Dry hopped. Golden colour, big white head. Strong fruity / citrussy aroma of Cascade and Amarillo hops, some hints of stale / rotting citrus peel too. The flavour is also citrussy and zesty, with a proper bitterness in the finish. Quite good.
