Really hoppy, quite dry. Only has New Zealand hops (Pacifica and Pacific Jade). A seriously good addition to the Irish Pale Ale lineup. Met with Chris (the brewer) nice guy- he was telling us about the Bay's expansion plans and new bottling plant.
Alex bought a Brew Dog Jackhammer, which is meant to be a seriously bitter pale ale (200+ IBUs apparently). It tasted quite tame after the Voyager.
It's available at all the Cottage Group pubs, so no need to make a special journey to the Black Sheep if the Dark Horse is your local.
Between this, Carlow's DIPA, Kindred Spirit, Equinox and Bo Bristles latest PA, it's been a fantastic week for Irish beer.
Yep, it's a tasty drop alright - lots of really waxy citrus bitterness (I got a shedload of zesty lime) - there's no doubt that Chris has chucked some hops in there!
A little bit rough and aggressive (as Andrew said, it made the beast that is Jackhammer seem like an easy drinker!), but massive step in the right direction!
