3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml brown bottle poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is hazy orange with a medium sized beige head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange peels and peaches. Flavour of grapefruit, orange peels, peaches, wheat bread and mango. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium-light bodied, smooth texture and average carbonation. Overall a good IPA, the label describes a smoky finish, but I didn’t detect any of it. Somewhat lacking in malt presence, a little too fruity.
