Our full flavoured, strong India Pale Ale. Now hopped with Amarillo, Citra and Nelson Sauvin. This beer has a pale straw-amber body, and pours with a full creamy head. Its complex flavours include mandarin orange, schnapps, pineapple, and juicy tropical fruits. It is warmingly alcoholic with a dry finish.

Pours cloudy gold with a huge, frothy head. Aroma is chock full of grapefruit and other citrus notes. Taste is a lovely sweet citrus finished with a nice bitter finish.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2015
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.

Bottle, 33cl, home, via Beer Bods as a split order with a mate. Aroma is pine and pith, mangoes, fruity yeast esters, coriander (faint) and clove. Taste is mangoes, grapefruit, lemons, citrus, peaches, tangerines, orange peel, marmalade, moderate orange tart and a full-on explosion of juice! Wow!
