Light golden color. Marmalade and grapefruit dominate the nose. Sweet maltiness hit the tounge initially. Fully bodied. Marmalde and lemon in the mouth. a bit thick and syrupy, but pretty enjoyable. Moderately bitter finish. A touch too sweet, but interesting.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is light amber bordering orange with thin head. Aroma is slightly resinous and piney but not as big as i expected based on what I read on the bottle. Flavour is the same, very balanced , bready stonefruit with a medium finish. Given the 7%abv expected a more challenging beer but could quite comfortably have a few of these compared to animals like "The Beast"

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma. aroma’s of a tropical fruit punch, with some slight pine notes coming through.
Appearance. Poured from 650ml bottle. Pours a nice cloudy orange colour, looks a little bit like a ginger beer.
Taste. Sweet Tropical flavours, i can taste Banana, Pineapple, Passionfruit and also a piney grapefruit flavour.
Overall. This beer is just like drinking a tropical fruit juice, but in beer form. however at the current price point i would not buy this beer again.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale poor with minimal head slightly cloudy. No full on hop aroma but pleasant enough. Nice smooth bitterness that slowly creeps up toward the end. Over all a tasty enough beer. May be lacking in the aroma and flavour as much as I would like but would be happy to have again regardless. Just being fussy.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Quite a solid American style IPA, although there is something fruity in there - maybe an english yeast. Not bad but maybe more in the pale ale category for hoppiness. But a very well crafted beer. Enjoying this brewery’s offerings.
