3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours bright hazy orange with little head. Nose is punchy pineapple and apricot immediately as you pour before some pine and resin play a nice part. The taste is predominately sticky, stewed stone and tropical fruit with a fairly mild resinous characteristic throughout which gives it a west coast feel. It finishes a touch short but it is damn refreshing and drinks much easier than the abv would suggest. Tasty stuff

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Large sample on 14th July at the Clay Oven during an Indian food and beer tasting evening. This poured a good golden colour, slight haze though as I got to the bottle late on. Hop nose and taste, mildly citrusy with piney hints in the aroma. Sweeter in the mouth than the aroma suggested, but this is still a hoppy brew first and foremost. Enjoyable.

Overall very good IPA, pretty strong, lots of hops but not overbearing, tasted at the brewery.
