Can, Chelmsford J D Wetherspoons, 2nd June 2015.
September 2015 best before. White lacing. Orange haze colour. Obviously unfined. Nice hoppy aroma. Grapefruit and mangos and pine and pilth. Like wondering through a Swiss forest and smelling the morning dew. Taste is lemons, grapefruit and citrus
Excellent bitterness. Clean too. Centrifuge I expect. Really good balance and good to session.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Shellhammers. Dark golden color with outstanding lacing. Truly beautiful lacing with a ring at every sip. Citrus aroma. Biscuity malt with citrus hops and a lot of caramel. A little cloying. Just ok.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance amber beer with a bit of hale and a solid creamy head.
Aroma: Orange, sweet citrus, a hint of bitterness.
Taste: Same as aroma with a little biterness at the end to help balance out, nice.
Palate: Refreshing, "crispy" (even more maybe than well Crisp)
It’s like crisp, with a bit less alcohol and arguably better balance, solid.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bold pine floral aroma. Clear bronze body topped with a foamy inch thick head to start. A pronounced bitter bite to starts. Has a mild sweetness in the background. Clean malt taste with a dry crisp finish. Well rounded and balanced. Has just been added to my go-to list of IPA’s.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2015 Poured from can, slightly hazy pale amber with full head. Wonderul aroma of fruit, citrus and pine over caramel. Taste is bitter with a medium body, notes of citrus, grass, resin and some cereals leading to long bitter finish. A little on the hoppy side and I love it!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap: Slightly amber & orange colored with mild clarity. Soapy white head leaves some spotty lacing behind. Aroma is subdued; grassy hops, bitter citrus, baked biscuits, pine, florals, tangerine rind, a bit of herbal leafiness. Flavor is staunchly bitter; heavy pine tree, herbal tea, musty earth, ashy leaves, & grass. Some grapefruit pith, orange zest, & lemon rind in the back-end, finishing with a touch of biscuit malt. Lingering with bitterness & a small twinge of soapiness. Dry-ish body, almost resinous. Decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice hop aroma, and strong golden color. Hop forward flavor with a good aftertaste. Lower alcohol percentage than some others, but very drinkable

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A great IPA, great colour for an IPA and nice fruity aroma. Hop bitterness hits you upfront but nice malty flavour soon balances beer with quite a dry finish
