Huge zesty/tang both on the nose and on the tongue. Fruity, nutty then this sherbet dib-dabs flavour kicks in. Great body, excellent beer.

Clear amber color, good creamy white head. Goodm piney resiny aroma. Medium-bodied. Lots of pine needles and resin in the flavor. Decent malt profile too. Quite aggressive hoppyness.

Very light pale ale (almost like a lager) that gives a burst of aromatic hops in the mouth but is in no way over powering. A strong beer that goes down easy - your have been warned!

Not crazy about this one. Like a couple of other Dark Star IPAs I’ve tried it comes out a bit thin and sweet with tastes of honey rather like Belgian IPAs and doesn’t deliver the sharp bitterness I’d expect from the ops - particularly Citra. They’ve done better.
