Fantastic Californian hoppy taste. Discoverd it inGalway and then look at other places selling it elsewhere in Ireland.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2014
An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of spices, fresh hops, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and straw, leading to a bitter finish.

rgf001 (157) - München, GERMANY - AUG 23, 2014
Citrus and Pine aroma. Light amber cloudy with off white head that lingers. Grapefruit, resin, spruce, citrus and malt flavors. Resiny mouthfeel with adequate carbonation and no burning alcohol. Dry finish.

Golden in colour. Small head. Nice bitterness up front. Slight sweet middle tones with lingering bitterness. Taste like a good IPA should.

seanpg (31) - IRELAND - JUN 27, 2014
Review based on bttle and draft. Pours hazy amber. Good nose with lots of hop, not bitter and there is a residual sweetness that is sticky. It is a good IPA but not within best of style. Having said this I still buy this on a regular basis but there are so many IPA to try you cannot help but compare to others. Foam and Fury from the same brewery is outstanding.

humlelala (1038) - DENMARK - JUN 19, 2014
(50 cl bottle from Bradley’s Off-license, Cork; BBD: May 7th 2015; Lot: 084) Pours a hazy amber with little, white head and big bubbles that fade. Aroma is hoppy with notes of pine and grass. Oily texture, medium body, soft carbonation and a dry, crisp finish. Flavour is aromatically bitter. Decent.

patricks110 (1777) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 14, 2014
A nice little Ipa with a reddish amber pour and a beautiful aroma of spicy and citrus based hops. Great cara malts and toasted bready notws blend well with a hit of moderate bitterness and grapefruit. A nice brew overall.

beerfest5 (1163) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 18, 2014
Tremendous IPA. I have no problem putting this on par with Alesmith, Stone, Maine, or Hill Farmstead. Pours a deep cloudy amber into the pint glass, medium off white head that dissipates quickly, nice soapy lacing left on the glass. Big grapefruit, juicy hop cones, tropical fruit, caramel, full oily mouthfeel, ranges from hoppy bitter to caramel smooth/sweet, back to long bitter finish. Really the best Irish IPA out there.

Excellent Hoppy flavour allied to strength in depth. Had as keg in the Darkhorse Blackrock Dublin. New personal favourite !
