Can at home. Aroma of malt, biscuit, caramel, pine resin, some orange, some grapefruit, hoppy notes. Flavour is light sweet with a medium bitter finish. Body is medium. Very malty IPA, not my favourite kind. However, as malty IPAs go this one is certainly drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml can.
Pours clear dark copper color with a large head. Piney aroma, resin and hops, orange and mild mango notes, slightly malty. Sweet malty tasty with caramel and resin notes, quite fruity too with orange and subtle grapefruit notes, bitter hoppy aftertaste. Medium carbonation, bitter palate, lingering oily hoppy finish. Nice balance and feels fresh. I’m not that fond of maltier IPAs but this is quite good.
