COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There is something really intriguing about a beer that is light in color, yet still infused with huge aroma and flavor, isnít there? It deceives the senses in a pleasant, yet completely surprising way; tasting great beer tends to be like that. So much of what we "expect" to taste, influences our opinion even before we actually do the tasting. Today, we ask that you set any preconceived notions aside so that you can take in the unexpected. A simple grain bill of pils, light crystal, and a bit of wheat, combined with a vigorous hop dosing of Mosaic and Simcoe make this beer just bookoo enough. Just donít call it "too bookoo!"

Half in the rake. Nice and sticky IPA. Fruity, gassy, boiled sweets, maybe a bit artificial in flavour but hits the spot.

Towey1989 (1662) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2016
Can at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) Pours a clear pale golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, peach, some lemon, a little lime, subtle pale malts and slight earthy hops. Taste of orange, peach, grapefruit, a hint of mango, a little pine, slight pale malts and subtle earthy hops. Medium bodied and a slightly oily texture. A dryish, slightly malty, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. A great IPA, lots of fruity, citrus and malty flavours in this. Easy drinking as well as been flavourful.

On tap. A clear pale golden ale with a resilient white head. Aroma is grapefruit, lemon and lime. Flavor is grapefruit, lemon and lime. Finish is a nice bitter citrus kick, lingering on. Light to medium body, bubbly, crisp mouthfeel and average to strong carbonation. Very drinkable!

erickok (5188) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 18, 2016
Clean, bit too clean, large head. Pine, clean pale malts, nice aromatic. Good but certainly no string bitterness. Itís more about the aroma here. And thatís fine! Very drinkable. (33 cl bottle from Saveur BiŤre)

DYCSoccer17 (3613) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 8, 2016
12 ounce can...3 weeks old. The aroma has insane tropical fruit with passionfruit and grapefruit. So awesome. Beneath it is a light candy sugar and a little earthy hop character. Transparent golden colored body with a medium, fairly strong white head. Good lacing. Starts with some floral, fruity hops. Not overly bitter. Some cracker malts are present in the middle. FInishes with some earthy hop bitterness and a little more floral hop flavors. This could be a little more carbonated, and could also use a little more hop and a little more body.

Can. Bright golden color, clear liquid, white head. Intense hops smell instally fills space after the can is opened. Aroma of pine, citrus. Could be more carbonated and less sweet, otherwise this is a great IPA.
