Hazy amber beer, small cream coloured head. Palate is a little soft with fine minerally carbonation. Creamy malt. Good fruity hops - juicy orange and lesser tangerine. Whispers of grass and mint. Semi dry finish. Very easy drinking and satisfying.

Hazy orange pour with small head. Orange fruitiness in the aroma, mango, pine, a bit floral, definite hop bomb. Plenty of depth in the flavour with a tangy biiter finish. Excellent, very nice indeed

Bought a bottle and drank at home. From my limited experience, this is all I really ask for in an IPA: floral aroma; cloudy appearance; fruity, hoppy taste with a bitter finish. Lovely artwork on the bottle too!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tons of sprucey citrus on the nose - mango, papaya, lemon rind, kiwi. Flavour follows with added depth of pine forest floor bitterness, a touch of honey, some grassiness and some candied orange peel. Finish is dry but not too much, long and moreish. Tasty.

Bottle from brewery. After long hard day sat down to quaff this beauty. Some citrus on aroma. Fullish in body. Nicely full in fact and then a lovely growing fruity bitterness on the finish. Good IPA. Very solid, very fruity, very drinkable. Lovely.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Partizan. It pours lightly hazy orange-amber with a medium white head. The nose is quite herbal, orange, dried mango and pineapple. The taste is orange, tangy marmalade, pine, resinous, orange squash, light spice and grass with a bitter, citric finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Can’t say I am the biggest fan of the herbal accent on the nose, but the taste more than makes up for it. Tasty and very drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the legendary Kris Wines. The pour’s a hazy orange color with a medium eggshell white head. The aroma’s tropical mango, orange peel. A bit of herbal hops. Pacific trade wind, a bit of salt. The taste is fruit cocktail, a bit of mango and orange, pineapple. Nice pacific tropical fruits. Distinct amarillo funkiness, a bit of chalk, pissy grass. Nice, solid bitterness on the finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Overall, quite nice stuff. Dinosaur Jr made some pretty solid albums.
