Pours clear golden color with a small head. Very grassy aroma, some hops, pine and mild resin, orange also. Flavor is orange fruity, harsh grassy bitterness, some resinous hops. Not very pleasant, maybe not fresh enough.

beeebon (378) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2015
Pours slightly hazy golden with thick white and lingering head, lovely! Aroma is tropical fruit, biscuit and toffee malt, resinous and slightly piney. Taste is powerful bitter but medium sweet and fresh. Slick mouth feel. I was worried this was going to be dank and overly bitter and one dimensional but its actually a lovely refreshingly good IPA. Top stuff!

Sampled from the tap at Lucette. Pours a clear yellow gold with a white head that dissipates completely. Aroma has notes of flora and citrus supported by sweet grains and grass. Flavor combines flora and citrus with some light fruits and sweet grain supporting.

On nitro at a pizza joint in Madison, pours a murky orange with some creamy, thick white head. Nose has biscuit and orange jam, a little vegetal, some grass, lemon. Flavor has a lot of lemon and pine, chewy grains, a little bubblegum maybe. Creamy finish.

Towey1989 (1519) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2015
Bottle at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma is strongly hoppy of grapefruit, mango, pine, some orange and caramel. Taste is similar of grapefruit, mango, orange, pine, resin and balanced with caramel sweetness. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A dry, citrusy hop bitterness in the finish. A nice and simple IPA but oso tasty. Citrusy, hoppy and slighly sweet. Easy drinking for a 7% beer and so smooth, but not as bitter as it claims though.
