Louis Richer, the creator of this recipe provided the following comments:

Paddles Up Pale Ale comes in a 650ml bottle. Presenting a clean amber copper colour with an offwhite head that settles rather quickly, it has adequate carbonation with small bubbles.

Sniffed and tasted at room temperature, the nose perceives grapefruit aromas balanced with coffee and tobacco. Flavours of maltiness are at the forefront and at the finish with evident hoppiness in the middle. The mouthfeel is halfway to being full bodied.

Presented at chilled temperature levels, the aromas tend to be closer to vanilla and the taste of grapefruit maltiness is still detectable while the hops are less evident when chilled than in the previous case. Here the mouthfeel is close to being full bodied and definitely more consistent.

In both cases the aftertaste of lingering bitterness is there for a while, making this beer very enjoyable with mildly spiced Asian Cuisine.
