Visual: Pours golden amber with suspended sediment, a small dissipating head, several small bubble steady streams.
Nose: faint pine hopped malts, clean green (lvl-3)-pungency
Attack: immediate bitter hops
Mid-palate: (lvl-3)-sweetness, fizzy-crisp bite, (MAIN) piney hops, caramel malts, grassy, bitter peel
Finish: very DRY, biting hopped bitterness.
Summary: A very biting bitter hopped IPA with all pine and zero citrus. Not really my type of IPA, too sharp.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Golden amber colour, mostly clear with lots of tiny floating yeast, white head quickly dissipates. Aroma is zesty citrus and some light tropical fruit. Flavour is fairly bitter, citrus zest with some tropical fruit and grassy notes. A bitter but quite tasty IPA. A touch watery texture considering the ABV, but still lots of flavour.

Bottle into IPA. Pours a slightly hazy golden colour. Aroma is earthy pine and slight citrus. Taste is pretty much the same but with a little malt backbone. Pretty good IPA.

Bottle - 341ml. Golden body with good carbonation and a thin, lasting, white creamy/foamy head. Sharp hoppy aroma with grapefruit and lemon hints. Its sharp, robust, hoppy taste carries citrusy and herbal notes. Ends with a long bitter finish. Enjoyable.
