A marked improvement from when I had this last time. Barman said they have used different malts and will do going forward. this is well balanced with a hoppy after taste that makes you want more. I would say the best Irish pale ale on the market at the moment. their beers in general seem to have increased in flavour. The barman also told me the owner is pushing for tastes to be challanged as more people are switching towards craft beer. Its great to hear . It is a little dark for a pale ale but that would be its only flaw in my opinion estpiwo (1319) - ESTONIA - JUL 29, 2013

Served on tap at the Porterhouse Temple Bar at the Independent Irish Beer & Whiskey Festival.
Pours a nice orange color, a bit hazy, with a 1 finger head that disappears slowly.
Smells nice and hoppy with a hint or floral/citrus.
Tastes like it smells with the hops being the overwhelming character and a bit of grapefruit and bitterness.
A bit rough around the edges when compared to more smooth examples of APAs, but still goes down nice.
I think that it went well with the Porterhouse burger. I would have more of these in one session, but had to get my hands and taste buds on other beers that were available at the Festival.
Comparable to Galway Hooker Irish Pale Ale.

On cask @ Brew Dock in Dublin City.
Copper smooth pour, good white head and lace. Fruity, citrus, hops, malt, floral. Bitter and slightly dry on initial sip. Hint of caramel sweetness. Had it before the Stone Roses gig so extra Brucie bonus points for that.
Refreshing and very thirst quenching

On tap at a beer festival in Dublin. English American style IPA. Nice. I will try it again. But I still recommend it cellar (508) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 13, 2008

Draught @ Tara’s Speciality Beer House. Clear amber with medium off white head. Sweet and hoppy aroma with caramel notes. Sweet and hoppy flavor with caramel and pine notes. Ends bitter. sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2011
Cask @ Bull and Castle, Dublin.
Cuivre opaque, col est minime;
Arôme de renfermé avec le houblon donnant des notes de citron restant dans ce style anglais avec une approche US dans l’usage du houblon Cascade.
En bouche, une bière qui partage le coté pale ale avec le houblon américain, note herbeuse et épicée allant vers le pamplemousse, agrumes et citron pour un aspect finement amer. Malt reste présent quoique en retrait et donne à la bière une touche de caramel. Dogbrick (13010) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a clear amber-orange color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops and citrus. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, citrus and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a lingering citusy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.
