3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It pours a hazy orange/amber with a large foamy off-white head that lasts for a good portion of the brew. Clingy foamy lacing graces the sides of the glass. The smell is hops, pine, and citrus up front, malts come in as the beer warms. The taste is sweet yet bitter at different times ranging between the hops/pine/citrus to the malts, very balanced. The palate is medium and has a nice creaminess around the tongue. This is very sessionable as the ABV is not felt. It leaves a watery aftertaste and finish. Overall, this is a solid AIPA that I would come back to, and lighter than most AIPA’s on the palate.

12oz bottle pour at home. Purchased a 6 pack at Total Wine - apparently waited to review it until I had the last can.
Tasty easy drinking IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark golden brew with thin head that hangs on. Smells and tastes of citrus hops, a bit like biting into a tangerine without peeling it. Very good brew but about $2 more per six pack to some comparable IPA’s. Would consider making this a regular if it wasn’t for the higher price.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearing with a really nice and intense nose this beer gives you a lot of hope. The body and palate doesnt really match it. It is a nice hoppy taste - but a little short on the palate.

355ml slim can, served in a tulip glass at Flying Horse (JDW), airside Gatwick airport. A fair, bubbly, beige head that stayed well over a hazy apricot coloured body. Fresh citrus on the nose. Taste of orange, pine, citrus peels and resin towards the ending. Fruity bitterness to the close. Well bodied. Tasty and refreshing (01.12.2015)
