My Bottom Line:
Oranges and pine needles float within this IPA’s fluffy mouthfeel, leading to resinous bitterness, light honey and lots of pleasure.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A lofty mushroom-type head of foam settles atop the hazy orange.
-Hops are also floral around the edges.
-This is very much in the tradition of a West Coast-style IPA. And a very good one at that.
-The airy mouthfeel and fragrant hoppiness make for great drinkability.

Bottle. Aromas of grapefuit, tropical fruits, lychee and mandarin. Lots of fruity flavours, citrus and orange with a bit of bitterness. Everything you’d expect from a modern ipa but just a little bit more. Excellent.
