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.

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 1, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 Pours a deep gold, nice white head. Soft hopped nose, some fresh grass and hay. Nothing overwhelming. Nice smooth english hop/pale ale style bitterness in the flavour. Finish is malty. A nicely done pale ale, nice to have one with isnt murdered with hops. Re-rated, they appear to have tweaked the receipe - way more hop forward and a pronounced biscuit malt, mouth feel as smooth as you like. Fantastic.

Bottle at home - but will look out for version on tap when next in those parts (Dublin) where it can be gotten. Good bitterness and clean refreshing taste

pivnizub (9444) - 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 (2814) - 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 (357) - 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 (3863) - 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 (169) - 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.

adamnowek (732) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2014
Lots of citrus and grassy. Not super drying in terms of how your tongue feels after a sip. Pretty good.
