Draught at Porterhouse, Dublin. Hazy copper colour, small head. Quite intense bitter orange aroma. Mid sweet with solid body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Cookie-like malt mixes with salty grapefruit. Marked bitter finish. Rather hoppy, but also a bit rough.

Dogbrick (11508) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a clear amber-orange color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops and citrus. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, citrus and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a lingering citusy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

sebletitje (9313) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2011
Cask @ Bull and Castle, Dublin. Cuivre opaque, col est minime; Arôme de renfermé avec le houblon donnant des notes de citron restant dans ce style anglais avec une approche US dans l’usage du houblon Cascade. En bouche, une bière qui partage le coté pale ale avec le houblon américain, note herbeuse et épicée allant vers le pamplemousse, agrumes et citron pour un aspect finement amer. Malt reste présent quoique en retrait et donne à la bière une touche de caramel.

Svesse (7850) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2008
(Cask at GBBF, London, 6 Aug 2008) Pale yellow colour with almost no head. Fruity, grassy nose with tropical fruit. Fruity, malty taste with notes of grass, tropical fruit and some soapy, floral hops in the finish (what happened with the Cascade hops?). Fairly thin and rather boring.

SaintMatty (6809) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2008
Cask (GBBF 2008) - Light golden in colour. Faint aroma of malt and some hops. Bitter taste with a slight hint of grapefruit. Rather bland and it seems they used the cascade hops rather sparingly.

culchiem (3514) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 13, 2013
Cask at Kavanaghs. Reddish amber with no head. Aroma is flat grassy hop. Flavour is dull bitterness, that kinda turns sour. Sweetish start, sour finish, not very pleasant to be honest.
