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.

Ok so its all about hops. Loads of dry hops, and even better - the joy of Simcoe is the whole deal here.
Low in alcohol for the BDog guys and that makes it a great refresher.
The most flavour ever in a low alcohol craft beer.
Simcoe makes it really citrussy, fruity, tangy.
It rocks

hoppy, resinous APA, looks great in the glass and tastes even better.

This poured out with a big strong looking white head on top. The color of the beer is a slightly hazed orange color. The retention and lacing are great on this beer. The smell of the beer is hoppy, kind of tropical on the nose. The taste of the beer is really impressive. I pick up peach and pineapple flavors with a subtle sweet malt balance. The mouthfeel is easy going, light bodied and refreshing. Overall this beer is actually really good, I would enjoy this one on a very regular basis if I came across a case or two of it. Very good stuff here.

Appearance: Slightly darker than typical pale ales, some ruby colour. One finger head, recedes quickly.

Aroma: Hoppy! Flowers, herbs, honey. Authentic California Pale Ale aroma.

Taste: Mild but tasty. Hops and floral notes, some sweetness, but a dry finish.

Mouthfeel: High carbonation, sparkly even. Light bodied. Delightful!

Overall: Pretty good reinvention of the California Pale Ale from Brewdog.
