4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle from the Romsey Beer Emporium. A deep amber pour with a dense cream head; there’s a rich tropical fruit aroma fromthe moment the bottle is opened; the mouthfeel is soft and thick with some initial sweet tropical fruits, but immediately overtaken by the intensity of the hops giving a piney, grapefruit bitterness that contasts with the passion fruit body. This is definitely a great interpretation of the American IPA style. Excellent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours amber with a fading head.
Nose shows papaya, lychee and mango along with fruit confectionery notes. Pretty vibrant. Some clean malt in the background.
Similar flavours, incredibly fruity. There’s a mint note too. Not much in the way of malt, quite clean. The straightforward hop character is a little grassy.
Carbonation could be a little higher.
