Quite good. Smooth and easy to lose oneself in. Give it a go if you see it on tap anywhere.

omhper (19336) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2012
Bottled. Clear deep golden, rich head. Aroma of grapefruit and canteloupe. Mid dry with light-medium body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Some grapefruit and gooseberry. Low-medium bitterness. Hoppy and quite pleasant.

Keg - Stag’s Head, Dublin 2. A significant improvement on the standard fare from Smithwicks. Lighter in colour than the standard brew - and more of a taste despite the insistence of serving it very cold...micro breweries and craft beers have left this in the dust in Ireland though.

Deu (681) - Nantes, FRANCE - SEP 21, 2012
On tap in Dublin. Pours a golden color with a thick white head made of tiny bubbles. Aroma of hops. Good IPA. I Recommend it.

garthicus (2664) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle. Appearance: Pale orange, thick snow white head, tons and tons of visible carbonation. Aroma: quite hoppy (I'm surprised) with a hint of lemon zest, barley and malt in there too. Flavour: Grassy hops however with a mild lemon Flavour running through it, grassy with lots of carbonation, long bitter finish. Not bad.

Down2die (108) - IRELAND - AUG 25, 2012
bottles from gormelys centra. citrus on the nose. crisp pale flavor . nice head and lacing throughout. a decent session beer. although not overly complex and too dry for my liking. giving you a very dry aftertase that lasts. must try brew with Amarillo hops and recreate similar myself.

Kita (1048) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottled, 0.5l. Clear dark golden color with creamy white head and lively visible carbonation. Aroma of grassy hops, fruits and biscuity malt. Smooth and rich malty flavor, pretty well balanced and finished with pleasant and long hoppy aftertaste. Medium body, slick texture and soft carbonation in palate. Better than draught Smitty’s ale...

sawmill2188 (21) - Michigan, USA - JUN 29, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2012 Decent beer, nothing to write home about. Full bodied pale ale, with fine drinkability, slightly bitter. Again, nothing fancy going on with this beer.
