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.

kathouse (1065) - Nevada, USA - MAY 11, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2013 Mild amber in color with a good head of foam. This was a nice English style IPA with plenty of noble hop aroma. There was a small amount of citrus in the nose and taste. Well balanced and tasty. Good finish as well. Pleased with this. Note: the tap in Dublin was a better version than the bottled.
