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.

DoctorHU (448) - UKRAINE - OCT 9, 2015
The aroma is weak, a little citrus and grassy - looks surprisingly dull. The taste is dry, with strong citrus acidity, slightly malty sweetness guessed. Hop bitterness is palpable, perhaps a little monotonous, but pleasant. The bitter aftertaste is soft and pleasant to play hop, herbaceous and resinous tones on a background of citrus.
