From trade with nbutler11 . Pours hazy golden amber with off white head. Aroma is rather grassy hops, sweet peach, orange, some bready notes, weak pine, citrus, some malts behind and light tropical notes. Taste is clean crispy hops, bright citrus fruits, grass, orange, peach, grapefruit, weak pine leading to a bitter end. Very straight and good!

On tap at brewpub. A smooth drinking India Pale Ale. Nice balance. Some citrus and pine flavors with malty caramel in the background. Sharp finish but lacking a bitter kick. Tasty but average.

Pours an orange color with a thick white head. Aroma is resin, floral hops, and malt. The taste is orange peel, resiny hops, pine, and a good malt backbone. Excellent IPA!

Can at cgarvieuk’s tasting. Orange amber pour, bubbly white head. Big fruit nose, mango, pineapple maybe. Tinned fruits? Very "green" hop character. Slight bready sweetness on the tongue with lots of citrus and some hints at butterscotch perhaps. Surprisingly soft hop finish. Really nice.

In can, thanks Franz. Pours a blonde colour with a fair white head. Lovely resinous hop aroma of passion fruit, pineapple and peach. Flavours similar with a nice barley backbone. Chewy mouth-feel, mild carbonation and CO2 prickle. Very nice hop and malt balance.
