Clear brilliant gold under a thick Rocky white head. Lovely tangerine and bitter grassy aroma with some bitter orange peel. Crisp and dry flavor with a nice bit of orange peel and light citric bittersweetness, a touch of American floral/grassy hops, and a mild pithy but gold malty dry finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml. bottle. Bottled 12/01/2015. Pours a medium thick, well retained, off white head, with light lacing, over a slightly hazy amber (SRM 8) body......nose is heavy floral hops with citrus, primarily grapefruit, pine, tropical tones, mild toasted malts with light bread, balance to the hops.....taste is mildly sweet, with grapefruit, pine, tropical fruits, finishing with a moderately heavy, lingering hop bitterness, balance to the hops......mouth feel, medium body, light alcohol warmth, moderate carbonation making for light creaminess. This is a hop dominated IPA, with only light contributions from the malts. This is quite typical of the newer generation of IPA’s. BJCP 8/3/14/4/8

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pale honeylike hue with soft haze and very little head. Very floral aroma, a melange of rose petals and stems and lilac, with a little sweet apricot and gummy bears beneath. Clean and green. Flavor is equally verdant, grassy and stemmy, with spun sugar sweetness and a shock of alcohol, with lingering lawn clipping bitterness. Not too powerful, but it has a nice balance.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: white froth like a dog foaming at the mouth.
Orange copper color underneath. Aroma is fruity rind of honeydew. They say it is passion fruit. (I like passion fruit and once ordered a case for the holidays.)
Hoppy with a bite balanced by malt
foaminess in the mouthfeel.

5th April 2016
42nd Floor Tasting. Thanks to our host. Almost clear yellow - gold beer, residual white head. Palate is smooth, semi dry, reasonable fine carbonation. Light malts, a little creamy sweetness. Hops bring touches of pine and hop spice, citric peel and a trace of lemon. A weird bitter note emerges before the lemony citric finish. Decent despite the brief skewed bitterness.

50cl bottle shared at the early April CW tasting, London. Many thanks to Fergus. It pours a clean golden color with a medium white head. Not lasting long this foam. Aroma is tangy danky hops with grass citrus peel and tangerine. Taste has also dry crispy tangy notes of grass citrus peel tangerine and quite a decent presence of dank weed notes. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, very nice
