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.

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 .

Sizzler80 (459) - 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

ciaranc (875) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 3, 2012
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.

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

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Cask at Porterhouse Cork. Pours a crystal clear gold with a lasting white bubbly head. Very delicate nose of citrus, bubblegum and sea salt. Very light sweetness and a light bitterness. Very smooth and very refreshing, but retaining a nice medium body. Much more delicate and subtle then the non dry-hopped edition, but still a very nice beer.

Cask at Porterhouse Cork. Pours a hazy golden amber with a thin creamy white head. Nippy nose of citrus, fresh herby hops and a light hint of sweet berry. Taste is lightly sweet with a stronger bitterness - I got lemon, lime, raspberry and a hint of what I imagine freshly cut grass would taste like. Nice lightly carbonated, smooth lingering bitterness. Had it on draught before, and it was decent, but a very very tasty beer on cask. Delish.

Pours a pale gold with some citrus fruit flavours and slight metallic tang, maybe used fuggles? Some bitterness at the finish.

The head is ok, the body golden. It smells hoppy, citrus fresh. The taste is hoppy, intensive, aromatic, a bit citrus. Nice and tasty. 12/11/11/11/-/11
