Cask at Brew Dock Dublin. Light golden orange pour. Hoppy resinous aroma. Smooth hoppy pine taste with bittersweet finish. A very nice beer on cask

Gangstergafje (537) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2016
The beer has a nice look. The color was a nice amber. The beer has a slight cloudiness. You can see some nice bubbles rising towards the top. The beer pours a nice amount of soft white foam. The bulk collapses, only leaving a thin drape. The smell of the beer is delicious. The smell reminds me a little of a stout. I smell some bitter roasted barley aroma’s and a hint of chocolate. There is also that familiar fruity strawberry aroma, together with a fresh hoppy sweetness. I really wonder what causes that strawberry aroma in so many Irish ales. It gives the beers a sweet, rich smell. The taste of the beer is just slightly less than the smell. There is a lovely citrusy hop flavor, with loads of lemon. There is also a hint of strawberry and roasted barley. The beer has a delicious hoppy flavor. The beer has the right amount of gas. I like it.

Ar- light malt sweetness and hints of baked bread are joined by hop tangerine, apricot and ripe pineapple, Ap- pours a lightly hazed, dark gold with nice white head. Fl- malty sweetness is quickly replaced by hop bitterness. The tropical fruits are present here but this all seems a bit disjointed and a tad worty. Mf- medium bodied, dry / hop bitter finish. Meh Ov- like the nose here but the flavor is just too all over the place. I'd bump the malt complexity and scale down on the hop bitterness. This is way more of a session IPA than a pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2016 Can from Bierhaus, Cork. Cloudy, light amber. Pine and grass hop aroma with a hint of lemon. Dry, bitter flavour. Served too cold. Better as it warmed-up.

Many thanks to Beersiveknown for this can. Great fresh floral nose with hints of malt. The beer starts fresh floral with hints of grain. Smooth, pine, fresh green hops. Mild smooth body, round and nice grainy bitter in the aftertaste. Nice brew!
