On tap. Brewdock. Great to see an Irish brewery using fresh hops from NZ for this brew. Dense head, descent lacing. Nice full hop kick. Really tasty!

aliquid (5) - - MAR 24, 2014 does not count
Hoppy with a long bitter finish, with NZ hops adding intense tropical fruitiness to the aroma and to the taste. Slightly oily palate with medium carbonation.

Has the kind of bitterness that I look for in an ale. Tastes like a session beer but watch out for the 6% A very good addition to the Irish Pale Ale range.

garthicus (2662) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 28, 2013
Appearance: Cloudy orange, small white head. Aroma: sweet, hoppy, grassy, vanilla, malt, a little fruity. Flavour: bitter, lots of lemon & spice, quite the fresh cut grass flavour running through it, long lemon bitter finish. It’s just a bit muddled for me... Odd.
