on draft at B&C. Cloudy bright gold in color, large white head that dissipated fairly quick and left nice lacing on the glass. Big floral hop notes in the aroma with some cereal, bready malts. Flavor is bitter and bright floral and fruity hops, some cheerio cereal flavor in the back end. Lovely full finish.

niquillis (812) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2013
On keg at Bull & Castle, Dublin. Pours golden with froth head. An average golden beer, maybe the keg killed the flavour. OK but boring.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2013 Cask @ The Porterhouse, Dublin. Hazy blonde, thin white head, great lacing. Lovely resinous, floral aroma, hints of summer fruits. Mellow hop, floral taste. Tastes like a packet of digestives in a glass. Nice background hop bitterness. Touch watery in the body. Flat carbonation from the cask. Bit of metallic in the finish. Doesn?t quite work, overrated. Related on keg, better.

ACD (617) - 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

Vir4030 (494) - 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.

Sizzler80 (434) - 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
