Canned. For me the aroma is weak. However, the taste is bitter! Bitter as hell! Taste of malt, but not significant. Alcohol is present, but warming. Full body. Alcohol and hops aftertaste. I sense dark chocolate and espresso a bit. Overall tasty. My style of a pale ale.

Has some decent citrus hops but pretty ordinary session ale. Pours an odd dark maroon for style. No head no lacing on cask. Pretty heavy consistency. Aroma has a little malt but lots of hops sting. Finishes pretty bitter. Volos.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Very citrus with a lot of grapefruit and sub-notes of pepper and pine.
Appearance: Very dark brown, almost black, with a beautiful creamy head, long lasting, with a superb lacing sticking on glass.
Taste: Attack is very hoppy, with a lot of grapefruit. Bitterness remains for a long time. We can also find notes of pepper, hop resin, conifer and grass. Hops are sharp and effective, just the way I like them. Roasted malt is also adding wood accents to it. This is an excellent and very hoppy APA, even though the color is very dark and could also be called black IPA.

Pours a deep brassy red with a nice pillowy off-white head with good retention. Immediate nose of citrus/grapefruit and hops followed by some biscuity notes and malt sweetness. Taste follows with citrus up from, but also nice roasted flavours, some dried cherries and toffee and vanilla. Not over-the-top hops, but a nicely balanced pale with a smooth bitter finish.

This ones got a kick to it. Itís got more hops than a rabbit on speed. It looks bitter, tastes bitter, and smells bitter. Itís nice, but a bit much.

Can via trade with Andrew - thanks! Dark brown pour with a spotty off-white head. Floral, citrus, and resin on the nose. Palate might be a little light given what the appearance would suggest, but not bad. Mild bitter finish. Decent brew.

473 ml can. Pours a clear reddish brown with a very long-lasting pale beige head. Smell is hops, citrus. Taste is caramel, malt, roasted hazelnut. Finish is earthy, citrusy. Light body, watery mouthfeel. Average carbonation. Somewhat disappointing, maybe was it canned 6.66 years ago?

Pours a slightly cloudy dark ruby red, beautiful head retention and lacing, alot of citrus on the nose. Taste has a hint of caramel and roasted malts, i pick up a touch of vanilla and rum, very creamy and full on the palate. Not much on the finish as far as hops, more a malty finish, but a very good pale ale.
