[Tap] Dull orange pour with about a half inch of white head on top. Tropical fruits, pineapple, citrus zest and resin in the aroma. Flavors of herbal hops, pine sap, grapefruit, mango and lemongrass. Mild caramel and biscuit malts in the background. Nice balance. Firmly bitter finish. I was pleasantly surprised by this beer.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rich clear copper coloured body with a three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of ridiculous amounts of fresh piney and tropical fruit hops with a kick of resin and sugars in the mix - very nice and definitely mouth watering. Light-ish-bodied; Strong hop flavours up front and a good kick of grapefruit, lemon, resin and pine in the mix with a smaller amount of malt than expected and a well balanced sweetness of tropical fruits on the finish. Aftertaste shows mainly hop characteristics with a very nice bittering quality and a robust finish with pine, resin and even some guava sugars on the end. Overall, a very nice Light IPA that borders on a real IPA (thatís the way itís classified here) that is a real winner - a very easy drinking IPA with tons of flavour - definitely worth sampling if you can find it! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Chantilly, Virginia on 21-January-2015 for US$2,49 sampled at home in Washington about a month later on 18-February-2015.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This was an OK IPA. Nose was citrus and pine, flavor similar,leaning more toward pine resins, spicy. Malts were light and dry, though a breadiness was there, enough to give it some backbone at the least. Drinkable enough. Golden, light hazy, huge head, meringue like, erect in the glass.
