Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a thick cream colored head. The smell is grapefruit, citrus, mango. The taste is sharp citrus, grapefruit, a touch of tropical fruit ending dry and a bit bitter. Light + in body with fine carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a pale golden color with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma has a lot of fruity hops primarily melon but certainly featuring some citrus as well. It smells a touch sweet but super pungent and inviting.
The flavor packs a nice but fairly mellow bitterness and a light sweetness up front but finishes fairly dry. There is certainly a little cantaloupe and citrus zest, some leafy hops, and a mild alcohol presence. Loads of big fruity hop character here.
Easily one of the more enjoyable imported IPAs I’ve ever had, blew away any expectations... I’m sure this is remarkable @ UK pub.

A fabulous beer. Intense citrous flavours, but not over bitter. A lingering aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear yellow beer with a nice crisp foam head. A clear citrus nose with lemon, lime, and sweet pineapple. Long bitter taste with fruit inspired flavor. Just a very good ipa, clear direction with nothing that disturbs. Maybe a little imbalanced.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
7.4% ABV. IPA.
Nice respectable head of small creamy foamy bubbles.
Nose is full of fresh pine, citrus and passionfruit.
Nice carbonation in the first mouthful, setting up the palate to receive the full body contact of bitter hops sliding up against you. Nice clean finish with a notes of green papaya. There is a nice lingering aroma of pine left on the palate and in your nose. The solid malty foundation is respectable in every way.
Very pleasant ride.
Goes on the favorites list. A very drinkable if somewhat limp-wristed (in the aroma hop department) ale. It’s ok, cannonball, we love you anyway.
