Have had a few bottles of this at home over the past few months. Fruity aroma. Dark orange opaque. Flavour intense, complex citrus, fruit with a nice lingering bitterness. You don?t really taste the alcohol considering abv. Really great beer and my favourite Irish DIPA at the moment.

Probably the best beer Iíve ever tried. Great aroma, taste, hoppiness. The only thing I miss about Ireland. I wish it was popular worldwide.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark orange with one finder of head. Aroma is a burst of hops with malt sweetness. Grapefruit, kiwi and mango. The simcoe is strong with this one. Tastes of a lot of bitterness up front, that segways into a nice fruit punch. The caramel sweetness of the malt really helps balance the bitterness into fruit flavours. A tasty bitter bomb just went off i my mouth, but its was thoroughly enjoyable. Galway Bays best beer by far.
