Availability: Year-round

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

330ml bottle poured into a Delerium Tremens tulip glass

Look: Dark amber with a fingers width of head which doesn't stick around for too long. Diminishes to a few odds and ends of surface foam with no apparent lacing.

Smell: Tropical fruit by the bucketload - mainly pineapple and papaya but there's a definite hoppy vibe there too, rather like Citra-based beers (eg. De Molen Citra). Overall, extremely fruity - quite unlike the other BrewDog beers I've had (Punk IPA and 5am Saint)

Taste: Take the blurb on the bottle at face value and you'd be preparing yourself for a hop bomb. Sure, there are hops there but the fruity flavours are dominant. Quite a dry and bitter finish with hop and pine resin undertones. I reckon the balance between the hops and other flavours is pretty much bang on.

Feel: Mouthfeel is a little bit insipid, although given that this is 'only' 3.8% ABV that's probably not surprising. Quite an astringent finish, although not unpleasantly so.

Overall: Colour me surprised - for all their bluster and predeliction for high-octane novelty beers, BrewDog have won themselves another convert with this. Having my tastebuds assaulted with hop bitterness isn't on my top 10 things to do, yet this works a treat. Eminently sessionable, if that's your idea of a good time, and definitely more drinkable than some of their other offerings.
