4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Tried this on tap at the The Bull and Castle in Dublin. Perfect summer drink with it’s a lovely golden nectar colour with a thin white head. The palate is really clean with very strong flavours of grapefruit and fresh lemon peel. Recommended if you can find it. Not bottled yet .
