3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Body is orange, hazy with creamy head, about half of finger. Aroma has hints of pineapple and mango. Taste is sweet upfront with easy going but high bitterness, quickly evading. Body is medium with low-to-medium carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Yellow hazy. Leafy hops, some pepperyness, belgian yeastyness. Somewhat grainy malts. Full nice smoothbbody. Sweet pale malts, good bitters. Golden hoppy finish. Was expecting something else, this feels like a belgian green hoppy strong ale. Says bbe ’15 on bottle, but I can’t find any of the fruity hops others have found. Flavourful, nice though.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours gold with a fading head.
Nose shows floral, fruity and spicy hops along with a fair whack of sweet malt and soft wheat.
Very dry flavours, some pine and resinous hops along with grainy wheat followed by an aggressive, sharp, bitter finish.
Nice light body, carbonation could be higher though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, some caramel, light floral fruitiness with grapefruit - some piney hoppyness, faint alcohol. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, some caramel and floral tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit - some piney hoppyness, light alcohol. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and faint fruitiness, some piney - light grapefruit hoppyness and some alcohol. IPA with light floral fruitiness - too much alcohol in the finish (considering the body).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice but a bit reserved in my opinion. Pours a pale orange gold with a big foamy white head. Nose of pale malt, caramel and moderate citrus hops. Nice balance in the taste with a sweet malt, citrus fruits and a lingering medium bitterness. Overal a nice IPA

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ugnnnn. Just want to drink but here I am. Apricot beer, slight haze I think, long lasting white cap and sticky lacing. Fluffy sweet citrus, lemon and tangerine, slight tropical note - I really like the quality of tangerine. Touch earthy. Taste is tangy and tangerine based, solid bitterness and attempting to have some spice, the bitterness is really low. Then again... Ah who cares. Plum on the gurgle. Never tried that before. I like. Highly drinkable interesting and mellow and harsh and light all in one.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 500ml bottle on 23/9/2013. Pours a slightly hazy light golden with a biggish head. Has a pleasant, relatively light, fresh, fruity, hoppy aroma. There’s not much malt in evidence, but it’s very fruity, with citrus dominating with some distinct tropical in there as well (mango and pineapple). The bitterness is quite intense, with the grapefruit notes ultimately prevailing over the sweetness. The body is medium to full and the carbonation average. A very nice IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle pours a hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that retains well and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and other fruits with some light caramel and cereal grains. Taste is a bold grapefruit and herbal hop bitterness with a light caramel and grainy malt sweetness. Medium bodied with good carbonation leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate. A nice refreshing IPA that is worth tasting.
