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.

Big thanks to Sc0pey for hand-delivering this one from across the pond! Poured from a 330 mL can into an Upland pint glass.

A: Nearly clear with some chill haze, amber in color. Forms less than a finger of white head that recedes quite quickly. Somewhat above average amount of carbonation bubbles streaming to the top.

S: Citrus (lemon and orange), tropical fruit and resinous hops. Some lightly toasted malts give it some sweetness on the nose as well. Just a bit of floral or herbal character as well.

T: As in the nose, citrus and tropical fruit hops hit the tongue first. The cracker malt backbone shows up to give just a bit of balance, followed by some spicy, melon, herbal, grassy hops. The citrus and spicy/melon hops linger into the hang - moderately bitter. The melon and spice character increases as the beer warms somewhat during the drink.

M: Medium body for style. Lots of carbonation sensation plus the hop bitterness leads to a very effervescent mouthfeel - quite unexpected, but not a bad thing. Minimal alcohol presence.

O: I'm confused...BrewDog can make a solid, tasty APA without any weird flavors, ridiculous alcohol content or advertising gimmicks? I'm kidding (kind of), but really this was a surprise. Not the best APA out there (not even close), but really quite enjoyable. I don't know what the cost on a can would have been, but if this were reasonably priced, cans would often be in my fridge. My biggest objection might be the melon/spice hop character - still not my favorite. But a minor quibble. Solid, well-done.
