Once again Im left with limited words about an awesome brew this pale ale definitely sets the bar for all the rest...pours a beautiful deep amber color with a 2 finger head and lacing that just last all the way through ...the aroma is amazing... a great citrus earthy nose that no other pale ale has yet to match...this beer has set the standard of all pale ales ...taste is a little malt with hops kicking in on the back end and finishes so clean and crisp ...enough of me rambling on this one if you dont enjoy this there is serious problems with your taste buds best pale ale ever....cheers

whiskyjan (9) - Seefeld in Tirol, AUSTRIA - MAY 16, 2017 does not count
Eigentlich ein leckeres Bier, aber fr mich kein Pale Ale. Von der Farbe her vielleicht schon, aber mir fehlt so einiges an Hopfen. Fast gar nicht fruchtig, aber ein schn runder malziger (nicht zu malziger) Krper. Leckeres Kellerbier -- schlechtes Pale Ale :(...

Pours orange with a good head. Biscuit and caramel on the nose. Biscuit, pine and malt flavours go along with a little bitterness. Fine.

RW80 (2486) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2017
355ml bottle. Appearance: Clear orange body, with awhite head. Aroma: Hops, floral and berries with som cereal matls and caramel hints. Tast: Malt, cereal and camarel with some herbal hops,berries and only floral hints with a bitter finish. . Low to medium body and carbonation. Maybe not fresh enough or simpley not living up its hype.

Davros IX (300) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2017
2016 catch up - Bottle at home - I drank this straight after the Lagunitas, which in hindsight was a mistake. A gentle flavour of hops, but not a huge amount going on. Very much a pale ale and no urge to drink it again.

Bottle from M&S Hammersmith. Good standard pale ale to keep in the fridge for thirsty moments. Hoppy, fruity flavors and good looks.

vincentvega72 (650) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2017
Mooi amberkleurig bier met romige witte schuimkraag die snel inzakt tot fijn laagje. Aroma en smaken van citrus, grapefruit, licht harsig. Uiteraard wel een bittertje maar zeker niet uitgesproken bitter. Redelijk droge afdronk. Prima tussendoortje, drinkt lekker weg.
