Clear yellow-amber, with little head and not much carbonation. Crisp, clean aroma, but no special notes. Watery palate. Taste is round at the front, with some grains, and heavily hoppy and bitter on the finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a bottle. Pours golden with a thin white head. Not much aroma. Hints of malt and citrus. Flavors of stone fruit and citrus with toasty, bready notes. Fairly dry finish with citrusy notes and a slight hop bite. Medium mouthfeel. Actually not a bad beer at all, but not as hoppy as most IPAs out there today.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from bottle bought at M&S. Clear deep golden color with big white creamy head. Flowery hop aroma, corny. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Balance towards bitterness, however I would expect more hoppy bitterness for IPA.
There is nothing interrested in this beer.
