2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
I love the aroma of sweet grapes and peaches. Lots of peaches here. The flavour is disappointi ng, as there is hardly any of those fruits behind the bitterness, which is not that massive per se. It is just an empty taste before the bitter finish, and little to say about the palate. Not offensive, for sure, but lacks more complexity and more flavours.

355ml bottle from The Beer Cellar. Pours a bright golden amber colour with a decent sized white foam head. Citrus and floral hops in the aroma are good as is the piney hoppy flavour. Easy to drink and very enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bomber i got from letspour.com. Golden/orange and clear appearance. Sticky white head. Not much aroma - a little citrus notes. Taste is average - somewhat boring. Pine, a little floral and bitter, and medium hops for an IPA. Just ok - would have again if offered but wouldn’t seek it out
