Hazy gold - amber beer, good cream colour head. Airy palate, semi dry and with good fine carbonation. Light malts, touch of creamy sweetness. Nice light citrus peel brings some bitterness. Smooth pine ensues and then some hop spice. Light grapefruit and tropicals. Light semi dry finish. Everything in good balance. A most pleasant IPA.

The aroma holds citrus tangerine, light plastic and pale bread. Light to medium sweet flavor with light flinty minerals, spicy pine needles, peach. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Further minerals in the finish, mild pine, citrus. Not bad.

Bottle from Reading BF 2016. Deep gold colour slight haze lasting white head. Fresh leafy hop aroma with some toast. Attractive. Malts are still not up there with the cask conditioned beer I have had today. Some sweetness. Yes some US malt but a huge hop presence too which is fun. Some heat from the alcohol good hops
