Draft at Whole Foods Market Ė Chandler. Sweet mango tropical fruit drives the aroma with hints of slight pine, slight molasses, and caramel. Pours deep orange. Taste of orange-laced pastry dough, rather sharp pine resin, grassy alfalfa, and sunflower seed. Decent.

Bottle, as Finestkind IPA. Just hazy golden amber with a large white head. Aroma of mandarins, kumquats, sticky bread crusts. Itís rather sweet but loaded with mandarins and some less sweet citrus flavours that drift gently towards a fairly bitter finish. Some pine and peppery grass toward the end too. Maybe a slightly drier or more bitter finish would have been even better, but itís lovely the way the citrus flavours slide though from sweet to bitter.

Bottle. Slightly hazy tangerine with a fluffy white head. Great aroma: blends weed-like resins, wet grass and sweet tangerine. The flavor loses a lot of the hop character -- bold bitterness is still there, but the clarity of the hops in the nose is not. There is a bit of sweet orange blossom and citrus peel, plus a little grassiness. Medium-bodied; silky carbonation. Very solid, good hop complexity.

Aroma is intense from grapefruits and a fair share of pine. Taste delivers on all accounts, dry mouthfeel, citrusy stings from the hops and a pretty thick backbone of malt. Still itís easy to drink and I canít wait until I get my hands on another one.

Bottle in the North Bar Social, Otley. Pours golden with an off white head. Nice pine hop aroma. The taste is light spice and bitter resinous pine plus some caramel. A little on the thin side, but tasty, light and refreshing.

From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Decent hoppy beer with nice aroma and flavor.
