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.

A very nice and easy drinker that is still a little different from most pale ales witch makes it a nice change. Aroma is dry,hoppy and sweet but malts are in the show case. A medium to lite body beer with a nice sharp finsh that is dry and a little bitter.

ACD (568) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 20, 2012
Keg pint. Pours light amber with small white head- medium to low level of carbonation. Aroma of pine and slight citrus - mediocre. Taste of bitter citrus, slight floral and reasonable malt backbone - not going crazy for it to be honest. Lingering pleasant bitterness in aftertaste. A decent safe option for hopheads in ireland if nothing else is available on draught. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
