500ml Bottle from McCambridges of Galway, Ireland (€3.99):
Great stuff, a truly excellent beer from Galway Bay & probably the best Irish beer that I've tried to date; I really enjoyed this one. The beer got off to a great start with plenty of hops & a solid caramel sweetness helping to level things out before the tropical fruits started to appear around the middle to the beer. I found the beer to have plenty of variety with some citrus & zesty flavours featuring alongside an earthy bitterness at times but the beer was still a very easy one to drink; outstanding stuff & I can't wait to crack open their double IPA now & see if that can go one better than this.

Pours a light, gold/orange colour. Smells crisp, citrus hops, slightly grainy, and light. Tastes similar to the smell, crisp-hoppy, citrus, slightly bitter, clean grains, a bit of a dry mouthfeel, but a very easy going IPA.

golden brown with generous frothy head, aroma is malty, distinctly hoppy , flavour is full well-balanced a top-notch beer, hoppy but smooth, fresh-tasting, one of the very best, possibly the best Irish beer, and even better on tap!
