A blend of pale and crystal malts and ample quantities of Cascade hops from America’s Pacific Northwest. Well balanced, medium bodied, citrusy and unfiltered; this is a California-style dry-hopped Pale Ale that is full of flavour with intense hop aromas.

On tap at J.W. Sweetman, Dublin. Reddish amber, cloudy pour with a thick white head. Very aromatic. Grapefruit, pine, cat, floral, toffee. Refreshing, slightly dry and good carbonation. This is good and I am looking forward to trying the rest of their beer.

Amber, clear, dense thin white head, good lacing
Aroma of citrus resinous hops, mellow fruity malts, background of soft caramel
Taste of floral soft bit spicy hops, fresh soft resinous hops, touch of orange, nice fruity malt background, well balanced flavours - good hoppy flavour, not too bitter with the fruity malt
Palate - Soft carb, medium body, good carb for keg, smooth texture, good bitter sweet balance, quaffable. Finish as main flavour, hoppy, resinous, clean finish
Overall - Very well made beer, good flavours - easily drink a few pints of this

ciaranc (875) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 26, 2013
On draught at Sweetmans, no notes, from memory. Cloudy amber gold, thick white head. Lovely bready caramel nose, some floral and bread notes. Taste is superb, toasted malt, sweet caramel, tropical fruits, backed by a nice hop bite. Robust mouthfeel, soft carbonation, long well balanced finish. 4 quid a pint, brilliant stuff.
