Tap sample. Poured clear light copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good to excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex citrus hop aroma. Medium body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This beer exceeded my expectations.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle: pours a clear deep golden with a thin-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet pale malty nose with some light oxidation and piney hop notes. Starts with a lightly toasted malty sweetness with a healthy amount of piney bittering hops and light citrus notes before a drier bittersweet finish. Didn’t taste as fresh as some IPAs and lacked some of the flavor hop components I prefer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Poured fairly deep orange with a yellowy-beige head. The aroma picked up meaty orange and light toffee with floral and earthy accents around.. a bit on the malty side. The flavor found orange meat and biscuity sweetness at the core, with pine and citrus (mostly orange zest) bitterness around.. quite peppery toward the back.. lots of residual sugars back there, but there was enough hoppage to cut through.. just OK. Medium-bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. quite bitter, but muddled.. not a great brew.

Had this one long ago, I remember it being a solid IPA but nothing amazing.
