Best Irish craft beer currently around! Tried the cask, even better in its aroma.

Vir4030 (489) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2012
On tap at Magpie’s in Dalkey, Dublin. Pours a clear copper with a great head. Aroma and flavor match, mildish but with this really great grassy dry bite.

visionthing (2383) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2012
Half a pint from tap at the Porterhouse in Dublin. Clear golden with a (small) white head. Spicy aroma (cardamom?) with hops, some fruit and notes of metal. A bit metallic taste with some bitterness, not so pleasant, a bit strange. Hints of citrus in the flavour. Lightly bitter finish with hints of spices. Ok beer, but nothing special. (2011-06-11)

imdownthepub (9621) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Anchor, Birmingham. Gold with white head. This is a sharp, dry, heavily hopped beer. There is a good crisp biscuity body, light with a baked bread note. This carries a spicy, peppery hop flavour, quite intense and bitter. Really very good.

Appearance: Cloudy orange, small white head.  Aroma: wonderful hoppiness, sharp, pine, lemon rind, wow, cat piss (the good kind) lovely. Flavour: bitter hops, nice and sharp pine, tangy too with a long bitter finish. Lovely !

Sizzler80 (412) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 18, 2012
On tap in Bar 44, Swords, Co. Dublin Creamy amber pour with a solid white head. All the aromas of a great IPA there. Orange, caramel, hay, coriander and of course hops. Silky smooth on the palate with all of the above quite pronounced. The hoppy bitterness is not over powering at all. A great balance of flavours. Hurrah for Irish craft beer in Swords, long may it continue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ACD (568) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 12, 2012
Cask pint. Hazy gold colour, not much head/lacing. Very fresh citrus hop aroma, bit of pine too. Taste is light & refreshing, big citrus zing, fairly smooth maltiness, good bitter finish. Best Irish cask beer I’ve had, also a decent keg pint - stick to cask if possible though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a pretty great refreshing, lightly coloured, easy to drink Irish pale ale, It has just enough hops to keep you hooked. Well worth a try if you can find it on tap because its not in bottles yet!

suprchunk (1952) - Crestview, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Cask at Bull and Castle. Still amber colored pour. No head and no lacing. Big hop bouquet and taste. Light malt taste. Bitter but well-balanced. Good cask beer.

jredmond (5016) - Manhattan, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2011
Draft at the Salt House in Galway with Linh. Pours a clear golden body with spotty, white lacing. Aroma is light hops. Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing with notes of light citrus fruit and a subdued hop bitterness. A nice sessionable pale.
