This fresh, full flavour natural beer is our tribute to the classic IPAs of yester-year. The post modern twist is the addition of amazing fruity hops giving an explosion of tropical fruit flavours and a sharp bitter finish.

Not so punk anymore! This is now a nice mid-range hoppy beer - fresh and clean and well crafted, but definitely mainstream. Mild floral hops with a spash of citrus grows slightly as the taste persists. The malt is slightly chewier than classic west coast ipas. A nice brew at 5.6%.

Aroma: very fruity - tropical, citrus and grassy notes. Appearance: clear, vibrant golden with thick frothy head. Taste: again very fruity, but with some earthy hop flavours followed by sweet malts. Very well balanced IPA.

can. Poured hazy yellow with a frothy white head. Big citrus hop aroma, a hint sulphury. Medium bodied, a bit watery mouthfeel. Flavour of oranges with bitter pith, herbal hops, slight peppery note, bready pale malt, sticky tart finish.

2015 BJCP Category: 21A American IPA

AROMA: West Coast style of citrus and tropical fruit. Clean and bright nose. Low grainy malt background. A hint of grass. 10/12

APPEARANCE: Pale orange hue; slightly hazy body (chill haze). Small, white foam mostly dissipates leaving little lacing. 2/3

FLAVOR: Mostly citrusy hops throughout; especially orange and pink grapefruit. Slight grass or tea-like flavor in the background. Bitterness is too low for the style (seems like a pale ale). Clean, unobstructive, grainy malt presence. 12/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body with matching carbonation level (closer to light than medium). Texture is smooth and approaching watery. Aftertaste is almost completely clean. Seems much lighter than even 5.6% ABV. 3/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: While it smells good and tastes fine; this is better approached as a pale ale than an IPA. 6/10


DISCLAIMER: The author is a rank-pending BJCP judge.

A pretty nice simple IPA. Light color, nice hoppy aroma, and a refreshing, slightly bitter taste. Overall a decent inoffensive IPA.
