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. Thats 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.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2013 Bottle from mane liquor. Lovely golden orange pour with a small white head. Nose smells fantastic! Loads of grapefruit and grassy hops. Nice hop presence. Crisp bitterness. Great balance of tropical fruits and floral hops. Just an awesome midstrength could drink gallons of the stuff. Best mid Ive ever had!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours hazy, honey-amber colored. Lacing of head. Aroma is peppery, with undertones of marmalade. Mineral water sort of palette, and surprising lack of bitterness.

Opaque yellow-brown with no head. Strong aroma of Citra hops/grapefruit. A nice graperuity pale ale flavor, but Im not really getting any of the touted hop kick. Smooth and light-bodied; could be a bit more carbonated because its bordering on a bit sticky.

Flaske kjøpt på Kiwi Hamna. Aroma sitrus, grape, humle. Utseende klar gylden med offwhite skum. Smak sitrus, grape, blåbær, humle. En bitter og smaksrik øl med fin lang humlet ettersmak. Godt øl ---

tezarak (97) - Lengnau, SWITZERLAND - FEB 11, 2017
Not my favourite BrewDog beer. Pours a semi-clear amber. Strong malt, and medium hops. Slight off (skunky) flavour. Good but doesnt quite fit my taste.

At the start, ti was absolutely delicious. The aroma is so floral, citrusy. It looks delightful and on a warm day, it would be one of the best choices. The smell and taste of hops is veyr strong. Over time however, it comes across a bit bitter especially without the % strength to back it up. It sticks to the palate a lot.

Amber bubbly with medium white head Citrus aroma Good hoppy bitterness with citrus notes but otherwise sour carbonated water However easy drinkable, could be in the warm summer day.

JuanCC (36) - Valencia, SPAIN - JAN 31, 2017
En nariz, notas inicales de maracuy y orejones, seguidas de lpulo fresco, que acaba imponindose. En boca, su suavsimo amargor y las notas saladas y ligeramente cidas le dan una bebestibilidad enorme. Una cerveza realmente agradable de beber.

simontomlinson (140) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2017
Frothy beige head left a cover on a still, copper coloured body. Fruity citrus aroma. Sharp, clean & prickly on the aft. A bit thin. Bitter tastes of citrus, mango, tropical fruits & zest followed by a slightly sweet, malty aft.

Copper colour with a sweet pale ale taste. Very nice for such a mid strength beer.

Onesimus (40) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2017
Bright clear amber orange with thin head that quickly dissipated Nose a bright grapefruit and tropical fruits Mouthfeel Clean crisp refreshing but a little thin and a lacklustre carbonation Upfront is a moderate zesty grapefruit with rather matte pithiness follow through Easy to drink but not memorable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
