Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks Tom L. Clear yellow with a huge head. Smell of earthy hops and yeast. Sweet-sour, malty and yeasty, cirus skin bitterness. Too fizzy. Quite a mess.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours slightly hazy ambr with a decent eggshell head that leaves good lacing. Hops comprise nearly all the otherwise typical aroma. Flavor is hoppy and fairly bitter, and a hint of malt pops up. Fizz is strong but body is average. Fair to middlin’, but enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light amber with creamy head. Floral, caramel, hoppy bitterness that is average for an ipa. Lack of homogeneity for me between initial caramel, malty and final bitterness. A little watery too. Big bubbles. Ok.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle bought at Dublin Airport. Poured a golden orange colour, slightly cloudy, with a decent sized white head. Aroma is hoppy, not that strong, with citrus notes. Taste is toward heavy on bitterness, medium body, average carbonation, with a hoppy bitterness to finish. I do like IPA’s with a good level of bitterness and this was an enjoyable beer.
