    Aroma: 8 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 8 | Flavor: 9 | Overall: 9

    284 ml, on tap at the brewpub, as a 5.0 ABV. Poured an unfiltered and hazy copper-brown coloured P A with a minimum half a finger slightly beige foamy head that had a very long retention and tons of micro bubbles. Soft carbonation. Good lacing. The aroma is sweety malts, powerful hoppy and juicy fruits, citrus. The flavour is sweety malts, dried fruits, walnuts, fruity, pineapples, oranges, grapefruits, flowery with a touch of violet and strong aromatic bitter hops. The mouthfeel is round, light sparkling and hoppy bitter. The texture is watery. This light to medium bodied APA has a lingering bitter finish. A quite impressive APA from the tiny brewpub in Cork. If the Purgatory is a temporary station, I can imagine, without a problem, drinking the PPA ,Purgatory Pale Ale, every day during this intermediate period!
