4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Darker side of gold with thin head, medium to full body with above average carbonation. Good well balanced aroma, comprised of a mellow malt backbone of sweet caramel malt, off set with bags of tropical fruits and a minor hint of earthiness. Good mouthfeel and small but pleasant malt character, but the true star here is the tangy fully loaded hops. The taste is bulging with tropical fruit (pineapple, mango) combined well with citrus (lemon, lime) all leading to sweet sticky bitterness.

Keg at CPK tap takeover. Pours a dark orange color with a nice creamy white head. Aroma is definitely hop-forward with a big malty presence nonetheless. NIce grapefruit and toffee notes in the nose. SOme light spiciness too. Taste is big and balanced, with nice grassy and piney hop presence and caramely malty presence. MEdium to full bodied with nice carbonation. Overall, definitely a very well brewed and balanced beer.

Cask Pub & Kitchen. Keg. Oak Aged version. Very hazy gold beer, little white head. Light crisp palate. Mild minerals. Lovely hop fruits - mellow peach, mango and other tropical. Balanced by a medium grapefruit bitterness. Riding alongside is a very nice light vanilla oak tone. A little creamy malt before a semi dry finish that show light peel and a whisper of skunk. Lovely!

Half pint from keg. A nice cloudy yellow orange colour, little white head doesnít endure. Smell is very lemony with some caramel. Taste is sweet lemon, mild bitterness. Reminds me of a bitter lemon tart. Doesnít have the intensity of flavour that you would expect from a DIPA, but it is certainly nice and drinkable. Oak doesnít come through much at all. Alcohol isnít prominent. Mouthfeel is good. My first beer from this brewery and a good first impression.

Keg at CASK. It pours hazy golden with a small white head. The nose is rather fruity.... smooth, melon, pear, apricot and mango, tangerine, nectarine. The taste is smooth, orange, tangerine, mango, decent bitterness, alcohol bite, white grape, juicy and light resin with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Smooth, fruity and very drinkable indeed.
