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.

Gangstergafje (337) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2015
The beer has a reddish brown appearance. Lit has a little drape of soft white foam. The smell is very sweet. It had nice hoppy smells. The taste is great. It is sour and bitter, balanced by nice sweet tastes. The sourness and the sweetness are from the citrusy hop. Everything is balanced to perfection. After you take a dip your mouth fills with a very nice sensation, I can’t really explain what it is. Try it for yourself would I say!

mcberko (10077) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 29, 2015
On tap at JW Sweetman, pours a clear copper with a small off-white head. Nose is fairly light, with floral hops. Flavour is fairly bitter, with floral hops and a fairl harsh astringency on the finish. Quite a pleasant hop-forward pale. Nice.

Very good pale ale with a nice balanced aftertaste. Carbonation level is not used to mask flavours

Beczka w J.W. Sweetman, Dublin. Zapach mnie zaskoczył, bo był wyraźnie cytrusowy, grejpfrutowy. Piwo jest klarowne, czerwone. Piana drobno pęcherzykowa, kremowa, trwała i świetnie oblepiająca szklankę. W smaku czuć idealnie zbalansowaną słodycz i goryczkę. Nasycenie na średnim poziomie. Lekko karmelowa słodycz i cytrusy od chmielu wspaniale współgrają. Byłem oczarowany. Po to piwo warto tu wrócić.

Really wonderful Pale Ale from J.W. Sweetman that fulfills all requirements of an excellent Pale Ale Beer. Colour and Foam are adequate and this beer is well balanced, has a fruity body with a full dose of hop taste and aftertaste. A great beer!
