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.

Golden body and unstable smooth lacing. Raw hops, green, plant like yet interesting and appealing. Taste is more classic straightforward, again different than an American style ipa, for sure. (33cl bottle from a Irish import products shop in Angers)

bought at the Drink Store, Dublin by MoM .. . Pours a wicker tan , decent foam .. . sap, balsa, and week old flower aroma .. . a very decent pale ale but lacks a bit of creativity - but still a damn fine effort! .. . That’s right a maid, a maid I can bang

tomer (1787) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - APR 15, 2011
0.5L bottle, medium head with some lacing that lasts for a very long time, clear deep gold colour, aroma of frius and herbs, flavour of citrus and herbs with strong bitterness that develops to an extremely long bitter aftertaste, the effects of the dry hopping are quite noticable. Nice session ale

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 18, 2011
Bottled@Cosmic Comic Cafe, Turku. Amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is fruity and floral hoppy along with some grass and mild maltyness. Flavour is quite much the same. Quite close to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

abemorsten (2900) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2011
Shared bottle at Cardinal. Clear golxden body. Creamy tanned head that becomes a film, leaving good lacing. Invitingly hoppy, grassy and herbal on the nose with notes of citrus. Light sweet, mild bitter flavors with a distinct aromatic character containing malty notes, but also hops, especially in the bitter and dry finish. Medium body. Flatish and smooth.

DSG (6329) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 22, 2011
Bottle. Clear golden color with a small white head. Fresh aroma of floral and grapefruity hops and some biscuity malt. Nice hoppy flavor with flowers, some fruitiness and some backing malt sweetness (biscuits and bread hints), finishes moderately bitter with some citrus. Medium-bodied with a rather strong carbonation. I’d like a bit more bitterness, and the over-carbonation is a bit annoying, but the hops aroma and flavor are nice and make for a good drinkable beer.

50 cl bottle @ O’Hara’s Freehouse. Rated on 06.05.2011
Aroma is fresh with hops, grass and citrus notes. Flavour has hay, some citrus and hints of grass. Nice and dry, although I like my APAs more hoppy.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 10, 2013
Lava lamp-coloured with ephemeral foam. Smells of green apples and white wine. Tastes of hops, with hints of brussel sprouts and green grapes. The aftertaste is hoppy and stays for a long time, reminiscent of cigarette smoke.
