Notes/Commercial Description:
This Californian Pale Ale packs a huge hoppy punch. A 21st century low amplitude, high voltage hop hit. Some people say slow is good. We believe fast is better. Being shot from a Hoppy Howitzer beats the hell out of trotting round a submissive paddock. That's why the internal combustion engine got mounted onto two wheels. Screw down the throttle and listen for that dull banshee howl floating back from those malted mufflers. Drink fast, live fast, sleep late and rip it up down empty streets. This pale ale is chopped, tuned and ready to roll. Fuel up and hold tight, this little thoroughbred kicks like a mule. Perfect for drinking by the bottle, case or even keg.

A 330ml bottle with a BB of July 2013. Picked up from a supermarket a little while back. Described as a Californian pale ale; no idea how they picked the moniker for this one.

Poured into a tulip pint glass. A light orange-amber hue with medium carbonation. Yields a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before reducing to a persistant surface layer. Aroma of sweet caramel malt with hoppy overtones; notes of grapefruit, orange rind, mango, pine, citrus and hints of tropical fruit. Smells lovely.

Tastes of caramel malt with a hoppy character and a clean bitter finish. Notes of grapefruit, orange, citrus, pine, mango, tropical fruit and stewed hops. Slightly sweet, though the malt seems a bit underpowered. A crisp, strident bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, dry and tingly, but rather thin and watery. Quite astringent, with an aftertaste of bitter aromatic hops and subtle malt.

Pretty good and certainly tasty. Smells great; lots of juicy hop notes mingling together in delicious harmony. The flavour seems a tad unbalanced in favour of hops - the malt could benefit from being beefed up. The body is also lacklustre; too thin and insubstantial. However, it's a solid effort for a relatively low ABV brew and it still has good drinkability. I could see this becoming a regular drinking beer if the price/availability were right. Worth sampling if you come across it.

Pours amber with a fading white head.
Nose shows lychee and passionfruit along with biscuity and bready malt.
Flavours focus on the malt; more biscuity and bready characters. Not that much of the hops show.
Too much carbonation, body feels a bit watery.
Not bad.

Bottle: Poured a light hazy amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of fresh floral citrus notes with lightly sweet undertones. Taste is also dominated by fresh citrus notes with light floral notes and sweet undertones with fresh fruity esters. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Nice fresh hops profile with nice mix between Simcoe and Citra hops with plenty of character with little alcohol.
