5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Served in a snifter from a 330ml can. Pours slightly hazy golden-orange colour with a medium off-white head. Aroma is a wonderful combination of tropical fruits with clear notes of citrus, orange, grapefruit, mango and orange, then subtle peach, caramel, grass and pine resin are coming up with the second sniff. Taste is very crisp and clean with citrus, orange, tropical fruits and grass, slightly spicy with a long citrus-hoppy bitter-sweet finish. Medium body with slightly oily texture and soft carbonation, very well balanced. Very nicely crafted APA, will definitely have more of this fantastic brew!

Fresh mango and exotic fruits notes. Good attenuation and highly drinkable. Very superb beer. Perfect fresh IPA. Aftertaste: fruity and sweet. Mango and peach, wet sweet bitterness. Amazing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Bunker Hill tap takeover during Nottingham craft beer week. Pours cloudy orange with white top. Aroma of tropical citrus but lemon zest wins. I accompanied it with the house nachos to test its west coast credentials and it can survive jalapenos. Taste has a malt base with plenty of pineapples on top. If we had California sunshine in Nottingham regularly I could be converted.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pas mal, classique.
Nez avec du litchi, un peu de mangue, d’ananas, un fond d’herbes. Pas mal d’agrumes, orange et citron.
Bouche classique, plutôt herbale, agrumes, fruits tropicaux un peu plus discrets. Finale relativement sèche. Peu de longueur.
