Hazy gold beer with a good suddy white head. Moderate carbonation. Sweetish pineapple, lightly spiced orange. Traces of mango and peach. Nice flavour - just a little more carbonation would have been good. Finishes slightly dry.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a pale amber color; hazy with just a hint of bubbles. Putting my nose into the glass, I was rewarded with a huge blast of lovely, citrusy hops. The hops carried beautifully to the palate, which was very hoppy, which led nicely to a bracingly bitter finish. Overall, this was a great, hoppy IPA. The hops were extremely prevalent, but the beer was exceptionally balanced. I believe I could drink this one all day long.
