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.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2011
Bottle from O’Brien’s, Ashbourne, Co Meath. Poured a slightly hazy orange colour with a mid sized white head. Aroma and flavour had some notes of citrus and grassy hop. Pretty lively carbonation. Dry bitter finish. Straightforward, but perfectly drinkable and a decent take on the style. Ireland could do with more decent beer and this is a step in the right direction.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 6, 2011
This is a nice development on the Irish beer scene; a good solid medium strength ale on bottle. Moderately hoppy, clean and very drinkable. A sort of go-to beer.

Fairly clear light orange with a small foamy head. Grape fruit, caramel and some grass in the aroma. The flavour is bigger, fruity and earthy, with grapefruit and some restrained caramel. Moderately long finish. Light palate.

A yellow beer with a almost medium and blond head. Aroma is fresh and fruitfull, some tropical fruits, peaches, mangos and fructose. Taste is biscuity, citrusfruits, some caramell and grapefruity sourness, quite dry and slightly herbal aftertaste. Medium bodied, slightly biting carbonation, fresh to drink. Fresh, citrusfruity and easy beer.

kathouse (1811) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - MAY 11, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2013 Mild amber in color with a good head of foam. This was a nice English style IPA with plenty of noble hop aroma. There was a small amount of citrus in the nose and taste. Well balanced and tasty. Good finish as well. Pleased with this. Note: the tap in Dublin was a better version than the bottled.
