3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy amber color ale with large off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of floral citrus notes with light resin notes is quite enjoyable. Taste is dominated by floral citrus notes with light residual sugar notes and light bitterness notes in the finale. Body is full for style with good carbonation. Nice hops flavours with well-balanced bitterness makes for a fine IPA.

Amber colour. Toasty, grapefruit, balanced, dry, bit of chewy malt. Another good pale - Iím not nuts about their other beers but they handle hops well.
