12oz bottle, in trade with a coworker. Thanks Mandy! Pours a clear, amber color with an off-white head and just a little lacing. Aroma is hoppy, orange, pineapple, mango. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, bread, light caramel, bitter hops, grass, pine, some grapefruity citrus, with an assertive bitter finish that lingers for a while. A solid IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle in trade long time want list beer! Pour has an orange highlighted amber color with a thin cap of white head that fell off. Aroma has some pine, mild bitterness, light citrus, and caramel malts. Mouth feel is solid for the style with good coating and medium low carbonation. Flavor brings the bitterness up a notch with a fair bit of malts. The bright hop aroma is more of a pines and resins with a lingering pleasant finish. Drinks a bit big but the abv is not on the light side either.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Orange like Irn Bru. Very bitter - tat tat tat. Not finding this easy to drink. No. Not for me.

Nice pale amber color nice earthy, floral hop aroma. Tasty hop flavor and lots of caramel malts give this a big impression. Very, very good. Astringent feeling at the end with a medium body.

Whoa. You smell that? That’s a super IPA hop juice scent on the nose. But take a sip & where did them there hops get to? Buried by the malt. Now you can’t read through a couple of reviews on ratebeer without stumbling onto some ipa fundamentalist cursing malt balanced ipa’s (and I usually disagree with ’em) but the malt here crushes the promise of hops in the aroma. Like ordering a cheeseburger & ending up with a grilled cheese.
