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.

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 (2767) - 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 (5827) - 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.

PsychoGunnar (29) - 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.

@Porec(Kroatië), Konzum, fles 0,5L
aroma: grapefruit achtig, dry hoppig, citrus,
smaken: zwaar bitter, grapefruitm citrus, dry hopping bitterheid. matige body, licht waterige ondertonen, normale co2
lekker alternatief tussen al het Kroatisch pilsgeweld.
echter wat te beperkt in vergelijking met andere Pale Ale’s

Keg @ Kehoes, Dublin [200913]
Pale blonde, clear, thin white head, some lacing
Aroma - Grassy zesty hops, some light sweet malt
Taste os bitter grassy hops, bitter zest, pale sweet malt background, notice the dry hopping, not that fruity, like the sweetness offsetting the dry hop bitterness
Palate - Medium carb, light to medium body, quite stinging resinous dry bitter hops and sweet pale malt, good sharp palate. Finish as main flavour, quite dry, lingering fairly bitter tail.
Overall - Tasted fresh here, good sharp palate...overall I liked it
