Odd that an Irish brewer would be producing an American Pale Ale, but there you are.

The color of the beer itself, and its head, is much as I would expect a pale ale to be.
There is an aroma of hops, and the minerals in the water contribute as well.
It tastes like a UK beer- full of gypsum notes, fighting with the hoppiness. Very clean and with a slightly bitter aftertaste, though. Nice!
It is properly carbonated and feels good in the mouth.
Overall, the sum of the parts add up to a very good score.

Light amber color, clean. One finger of foam, decent.
Very irish smell, good maltiness and biscuit, balanced by the hop, earthly and slightly citric.
Same for the taste, biscuit malt, grainy. Then hop. Well balanced.
Light body, good drinkability, and good aftertaste with tea and citric notes.
Pleasant.
