3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, orange, pine, hops and citrus.
Hazy/turbid golden/amber beer with a slight/medium off-white head.
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, orange and pine; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops and citrus.
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. The aroma could have been intenser, but the flavour makes up for this. Nothing else to say really, just a decent IPA.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Absolutely outstanding session IPA! Probably the best one on the market right now! I had two of these on draft at the Fairways pub in Limerick and could have had even more had the place not closed for the night. You wouldn’t be able to tell this apart from a full-on IPA. The hop flavor was huge, big and bold, like a "normal" IPA but without all the booze. The beer poured a dark straw color with an ample white head. The head left some nice, cascading lacing around the inside of the glass. The nose was floral, spicy, balanced and very inviting. As I mentioned, the flavors were absolutely delicious! There was just enough pale, caramel malt flavor to balance the insanely fruity, dry, spicy and floral hops. Incredible IPA!
