COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg& bottles, regular.Dry hopped for extra aroma, this pale ale has a light malt base with just the right mouthfeel to allow the hop character to predominate. Grapefruit like bitterness is full and lasting and is balanced by a zesty citrus burst of aroma from two late additions of cascade hops.

AssKicker (270) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - MAR 9, 2016
Blonde aux reflets roux, mousse et carbo corrects. En bouche, présence modérée du malt et du houblon, ce dernier étant plutôt porté sur le résineux. Tout est modéré, et ce malgré l’utilisation du dry hopping. Une bière agréable.

DraftDodger (1170) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 4, 2016
Copenhagen 4/3 2016. 50 cl bottle from Meny. Very green label with ornaments that looks a bit Gaelic. Pours clear golden yellow with white head. Settles as very thin creamy layer for foam. Only very moderate lacing. Aroma is fruity with citrus and grape fruit. Slightly metallic. Medium carbonation and slightly thick palate. Flavor of mallty sweetness. Followed by distinct bitterness. Metallic notes. Quite dry finish. A bit one-dimensional - but not terrible at all.

nybol (1549) - DENMARK - FEB 18, 2016
Rigtig fint humlet med smagen af blomster/citrus, en god let øl til en varm sommer.

nephirem (295) - CROATIA - FEB 3, 2016
Pours a clear looking orange color with a small white head. Beautiful refreshing smell of citrus. Mouthfeel is wonderful. Starts off soft and creamy but then high carbonation hits in. It’s like the citrus aroma and bitterness comes straight from the bubbles - tingly sensation on the tongue is top notch and very refreshing. Finish is mostly dry and bitter. Overall, this is a great example of the style. Recommended!
