Bottled. Red-brown with a slight haze and a small, off-white head. A fresh, piney nose, with a touch of spice and citrus. Lots of peppery spice flavours, starting sweet and orangey followed by a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Very good.

Can bought from local beer shop, pours a hazy dusty brown colour with tan head. Tastes good, intense hop bitterness but the malt sweetness is there with a savoury taste at the same time. A decent IPA which I rather enjoyed!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy orangish, deep honey color with a hint of red and a rich tan head. The smell is rich, caramel, fruit, spice, over ripe vegetables, citrus. The taste is spicy, sweet rich malt, fruit, citrus ending very dry and mildly bitter. The body is medium and silky with fine carbonation. Looks and feels a bit better than it tastes though it is certainly decent.

Can - Earthy pond hops and spicy rye. Cloudy copper with a head that disappears quickly. Hoppy bitterness up front, rye spice and a bitter finish. Not bad, but the rye is overwhelmed by the bitterness.
