7 Lovely hoppy aroma - peach and lychee, and other sweet fleshy fruits.
3 Mid orange, tiny brief head.
6+ Nice hoppy body, as you’d expect from the aroma, but it’s not a very complex beer. It’s only about the hops and is a bit one-dimensional.
4 Smooth and fruity. Sweetish. Big and bold, but nice.
13 Pretty tasty IPA. Fruity and fresh.
