4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Portsmouth brewery snifter.
The color is a bright, cloudy yellow with a light white head and some nice lacing left on the glass.
The smell is bright hops in the nose some good sweetness that reminds me of spring. There is some grassy aromas and a nice bright orange and mango aroma with smelled like there was fruit in this beer.
The flavor is biscuit dough flavor at first with a tease of citrus and a tease of pine then a smack of bitterness. There is a slight push of bitterness that takes you aback before letting of earthy pine in. Resiny citrus flavor runs deep in this beer like a vain breathing life into the back-end where more bitterness punishes briefly before letting go.
The feel of this beer is a medium which does try to be a bigger beer. The bitterness lingers a bit and makes it feel heavy but only briefly.
This beer does go down well even with a certain amount of finessing. A hop lover must try.

Bottle - 341ml. Beaytiful hazy golden body with a thin white foamy head. Some yeast chunks are visible. Lovely hoppy aroma with orange and mango hints. Its very well balanced hoppy taste carries malty, citrusy, herbal, and yeasty notes. Ends with a long, sharp, bitter finish. Top notch IPA.

Golden with nice white head. Aroma is grapefruit, green hops, mild spicy notes and some sweet citrus notes. Easy palate. Aftertaste is dry, fruity and lingering bitterness. Overall: Excellent aroma. Lacks complexity in the aftertaste besides bitterness. Easy drinking, could drink a ton of this.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy pale golden colour with minimal head. Faint aroma of tropical and citrus fruits. Passionfruit, pineapple, grapefruit and mango. Thin slick body. Taste is fairly bitter, not much in the way of malt character. Spicy hops character is present and leads into a crisp finish. Quite disappointing as I was hoping for something exceptional.

Pours a hazy medium yellow moderate head, dissipates fairly fast aromas of tropical fruit, pineapple, peach, pears. Mildly sweet to start, quickly moves into the tropical fruit flavors, bitterness lingers for quite some time.p
