Pint from the brewpub. Dark amber in colour with thick white head. Smells hoppy. Lots of cascade (my fave hop) so far so good. Taste doesnt disappoint. Lota of bitter, citric, hoppy goodness. Really tasty beer. This brewpub really are churning out some good stuff

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask (handpull) at JWS, Dublin - first pint sold from a fresh cask. Deep orange with lasting white head. Plenty of pine in the aroma, some grapefruit, and fairly waxy orange - caramel and herb in there too. Taste gives a bigger hit of caramel (not sticky or cloying by any means), pithy grapefruit, very juicy blood-orange, loads of pine resin, some herbs. A good whack of slightly rough pithy citrus bitterness, which lingers for a while. Well balanced, lots of solid C-hop character. Good stuff - a solid APA at an incredibly sessionable ABV. Four quid a pint at all times too, so an extra point for value.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewpub. Appearance: Amber red, thick off white head. Aroma: HOPS!!!!!!! Delicious cascade hops, some cattiness, citrus, perfumy, smells great. Flavour: A little less hoppy than the aroma but still really well hopped, malty with a nice sweetness, bitter on the tongue with a medium length hoppy finish. Would LOVE to try this on cask with some dry hopping.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The head is fantastic and robust, the body is orange-red. It smells hoppy-aromatic, intensive, a bit bitter, but more fruity, a bit malty. The taste is hopintensive, a bit pellet, fruity, flowery. A hoparomatic and easy drinkable, really tasty Pale Ale from Dublin! I couldn´t stop to drink this one and the Porter as I was there ;) 15/13/13/12/-/13
