3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml can. Minimally cloudy, orangey dark golden to amber colour with average to huge, frothy to macro-pored, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Cautious herbal and piney hop aroma, a woody touch of pineapple. Taste is piney hoppy, a touch of pineapple, very subtle caramel malty sweetness. Exactly what it wants to be: a weaker, reduced, still flavourfull IPA.

Can from Coppers 8 Til 8. Lovely fresh pine and grass aroma, transfers nicely into the flavour, with tasty orange notes, a flavoursome marmalade taste amd a good, dry finish, with woody/leaves characteristics. For 4.2% this is pretty good and could easily pass for a percent or so stronger.
