4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Slightly hazy golden color with creamy off-white head. Aroma has dank hops with pine and grass notes. Taste starts really balanced with lots of dank and tropical hops. Mango, papaya, melon and avocado, with some nice bitterness on the finish. Really smooth mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Extremely drinkable for its ABV, lots of dank hops but not overly bitter, right up my alley.

Citrus aroma full of pine, tropical fruit and some malt. Pours light golden with a white and frothy head. Extreme bitterness in taste. Fabulous flavours of citrus, grapefruit and lemon grass. Medium body, relatively light carbonation. Long after taste. Not a beer for the faint of heart. Wonderful beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, orange, tropical fruit, pine, hops and citrus.
Turbid/opaque yellow/golden beer with slight yeast and with a medium off-white head.
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, orange, tropical fruit and pine; ends slightly/medium bitter and slightly dry with hops and citrus.
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. It’s really tasty, having IBU than most IIPA’s while still sweet and easy to drink.
