3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from Ales by Mail. Quite an explosive opening. Light amber pour with an off-white head. Bags of citrus fruit in the aroma with notes of apricot. Citrus burst in the flavour with a splash of vanilla and peach. Lots of tingly fruit on the tongue. Pleasant bitter finish. Nice.

Can 473ml (ABM)
Hazy orange color, big cloudy head, some lace. Gooseberry, melon jam in the nose. Medium-bodied. Lots of gooseberries, citrus, some sweetish tropical fruityness in the background. American hops showcase with strong malt base. Feels more like DIPA. Probably fresh from tap adds few points.

Golden body, white head. Aroma has lots of hops - resiny, herbal and some mellow fruits. Flavour is quite intense with caramelly bitterness and resiny hops. Finishes with some nice peachy mellowness. Quite spectre for one zip. Balanced bitterness, which turns to dry.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can from AlesByMail.co.uk. Orange to amber, moderate hazy body, with a big, creamy, white head. Very fruity aroma of citrus, orange, apricot, passion fruit, berries, resin, some pine. Taste with the same fruity aromas and a tasty malt backbone of biscuit, caramel, honey. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a medium carbonation and it finishes bitter, dry, with grapefruit, grass, some pine and many fruit notes again. A tasty, lighter bodied IPA with a wonderful fruitiness and a greatly balanced malt backbone. The dryness in the finish makes it even easier to drink. Excellent!

Crisp, quite dry, but also juicy, medium bodied, quite spritzy on the tongue, with a long dry bitter finish. Very nice.
