Very fruity IPA, with strong grapefruit/pineapple notes and aroma. Pleasing hop bite, with some lingering bitterness. Much less astringent than a lot of IPAs, and overall its pretty well balanced. Would definitely drink again.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
IPA with Amarillo, Centennial and Simcoe. Yellowish white, stable head, hazy amber colour. Aroma of lemon zest, orange, green apple and lots of citrussy, green hops, dry-hopped. Taste begins with a subdued fruitiness, bit of caramelly malts, gradually becoming more hoppy and ending in a very green, herbal, peppery hop bitterness that sticks for quite a long time. Nice example of its style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
No head left, clear darker amber-orange beer; some lace. Fruity, citrussy nose, hop, and a bit of caramel; summer grain. Bitter, citruspeel, but in delayed action - at first nothing! A tad of lightly toasted malts, but not much. Slick, oily, if not really well-bodied. Well, OK. Certainly.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice biting IPA, but with a touch of a sweet finish. Pours clear amber with a nice robust creamy head. Aroma is complex, sweet malt, honey, toffee, caramel, no sign of the hops that are to come. Taste comes in with a nice malt flavor, hos riding the wave on to the taste buds at the finish. Enjoyable throughout.
