Hazy light orange color, medium white head. Sweet malty and fruity aroma with notes of orange, biscuit and some strawberry. Taste has similar notes, it is mostly sweet with heavy hoppy bitterness in finish. Medium body and average carbonation, alcohol is well hidden. Great sweetness and bitterness balance, nice fruity IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Misty golden color with a fine thick white head that leaves an ok lacing.
Aroma: Grapefruit hoppy, rich fruity and a bit sweet malty.
Palate: Medium to full body. Slightly sweet and a nice bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Grapefruit/citrus hoppy, rich fruity and malty.
Overall impression: Tasty and balanced dipa. I would personally hoped that the hoppy notes were more dominant than the fruity notes. Definitely a beer I would drink again, but not my favourite.
