Bottle and keg: Filtered

Ingredients: Spring Blend, Cara and Crystal Malts; Simcoe, Citra and HBC hops.

This Californian Pale Ale packs a huge hoppy punch. A 21st century low amplitude, high voltage hop hit. Some people say slow is good. We believe fast is better. Being shot from a Hoppy Howitzer beats the hell out of trotting round a submissive paddock. That’s why the internal combustion engine got mounted onto two wheels. Screw down the throttle and listen for that dull banshee howl floating back from those malted mufflers. Drink fast, live fast, sleep late and rip it up down empty streets. This pale ale is chopped, tuned and ready to roll. Fuel up and hold tight, this little thoroughbred kicks like a mule. Perfect for drinking by the bottle, case or even keg.

Bottle from shop. Pretty good ligth beer, fresh hops, some fruit, nice balance and good complexity for a 3.8 abv beer

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2017 Пиво янтарного цвета, лёгко пьётся. Аромат хвойный с тропическими нотками. Во вкусе сразу ощущается хвойная горчинка, манго, однако все сменяется слабым едва горящим послевкусием. Типичный APA. Пиву не хватает вкуса и плотности, во вкусе ощущается водянистость, хотя для начинающих любителей крафта самое то

Amber with little white head. Aroma is bread, dough, butter cookies, some slightly exotic fruit, mango apricot. Taste is slightly stale bitter oily with some hints of fresh sour and sweet fruityness. Could have more lively carbonation. A tad watery and a bit flat. Still nice and enjoyable.

Kaum Schaum. Farbe: Blond mit leichtem Bernstein Aroma: Viel Frucht, darunter Zitrusfrüchte, Ananas, Mango und Litschi. Geschmack: wenig Malzkörper, moderat bitter, sehr leicht und fruchtig, ähnelt einem Zitroneneistee. Mittlerer Kohlensäuregehalt Erfrischendes, leichtes Sommerbier ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From the can into a halfpint glass, at home.

Aroma: Mostly piney and resinous, with a little bit of caramel thrown in for good measure. Very appealing.

Appearance: A wonderful amber-gold body with an off white head that just about lingers on the top. Exactly what a beer should look like.

Taste: Wow! This surprised me a lot. This beer tastes much stronger than the 3.8% abv would have you believe. Almost like a watered-down Punk IPA, but not in a bad way! Slightly sweet to start, then a nice (but not overpowering) bitterness sets in. I could drink this all day... A great session beer!

Palate: Rather oily on the tongue due to the resinous hops, average carbonation that isn't too harsh. Slightly bitter aftertaste.

Overall: This is a great beer, and for a low percentage option, it's rare to find something so damn tasty.

Draft at Dutch's. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale toasted malts, caramel, good hop character at 3.8%, some pine, grass, citrus, more pop than expected.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2017 2. 9. 2017, Ljubljana. Canned. Interesting aroma, but a bit toned down. Taste starts with a bit of malt sweetnes, some hoppy end is added until finish, aftertaste being the blend of both sides. Toned down, not aggressive at all. Proper session brew I'd say.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2017 Nothing pale about this ale, brown with a sparse head and a grassy aroma. It's all about the hops with a faint fruity undertone. This blurs the borders of pale ale and IPA. Who cares, it's delicious!

despite the fact that this is a very tasty and quaffable brew i can’t shake the feeling that this is literally a watered down version of punk IPA. nevertheless, it is a great session IPA with loads of bursting hop flavor. edit: the live version of this didn’t really do much to convince me that this was one of the better brewdog offerings, although the live promotional run did have a lovely pint glass to go with it!

Frisch vom Hahn bei BrewDog Berlin. Sehr fruchtig im Antrunk. Sehr gut trinkbar und erfrischend.
