Orange with a white head. Aroma and taste of fruit, hops, grape and some pine. Bitter and refreshing. Not that heavy but nicely drinkable.

Can from Ian, thanks a lot! Holy shit, what an aptly named beer. Light golden pour with a big white head. Lots of piney aroma with some sweet caramel. Very light bodied, with sticky pine hops. I don’t think I’ve drank a beer this fast since funneling them through a lawn ornament in high school.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 Oz bottle from Redmonds. Quite pale amber/gold, thin fizzy white head, doesnt last. Grassy, piney spruce hops in the aroma, a little tropical fruit and grain too. Big flavour, tropical fruits again, bittersweet hops, touches of grapefruit, mellowing to a sweet malty graininess. Light bodied and very highly carbonated. Long, bitter finish. Nice and really fresh considering the journey.

Bottle. Bright orange body. Huge juicy grapefruit aroma and flavour, just so juicy! Clean malts of medium sweetness and a finish that is bitter but not scathing, ending cleanly in a quenching way. This is an aptly named IPA-- I could definitely drink this all day in the summer sun (or anytime really, who’s kidding who).

Amazing aroma of fruity hops I can’t believe this is only 4.7 it’s awesome. Appearance is a little on the flat side hazy. Flavour is really nice not as intense as I was expecting and hinted at by the aroma but tasty.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Väldigt fruktigt och mycket humlig i aromen. Lite tunn i kroppen och en oblanserad beska.

Very citrussy. Very drinkable beer, very sharp on the palate. Would recommend to others.

Den här var en tunn sak med en stabil beska och mycket smak av grapefrukt. Slutsats: lite lätt men ändå god.

From 345 ml bottle. Pours a clear honey-gold with a small (collapsing) white head. Light to moderate carbonation. Lots of tropical fruit dominate the nose, with grapefruit, lime, melon and guava, as well as some pine needles. Taste is citrus (mainly lemon) up front before a firm, piney hop bitterness in the mid-palate. Sweet malts at the end. Really flavoursome and nicely balanced IPA. Pretty great.
