3.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright yellow color with a full white head - looks like a good German Pilsner. The nose turns that perception on its ear, as it is a wonderland of grapefruit, pine and resin aromas. The flavor is a bit more subdued, with strong echoes of the flavors listed above. A nice crisp mouthfeel, with a very dry finish. The only thing missing is the alcohol - otherwise, a perfect west coast IPA. Perfect for day drinking - on an aside, my pilsner-loving, craft-hating wife thought this was really good - high praise...

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance is golden and completely clear at first, but then a bit cloudy once all the bottle is poured out. A bubbly white head, a few bubbles rising. Aroma- tons of fresh hops, grapefruit, pineapple, pine, malts, hint of toffee. Smells great. Taste- lots of hop bitterness, orange peel, pineapple juice, fresh fruit, and more tropical fruit comes through as it warms a bit. Lots of pine, a long and very bitter finish. Really good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Craft Wine 260515. Vibrant golden colour with a low layer of white foam. Strong vibrant aromas of pineapple and passion fruit fill the nose. Great flavour, lots of fruit. Big in the mouth with a long finish. One of the best easy drinking IPA’s I have had in a long time.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle poured into tulip. Aroma of morning pine, slightly damp and tastes also of pine and citrus. Smoothes aftertaste. Maybe slightly overcarbonated. A satisfying beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours pale yellow with thin white head that laces nicely. Aroma is fruity, citrusy, little piney notes. Has more body than I was expecting, not much malt flavor as expected, covered by fresh hops from start to finish. Very light, very drinkable. A little more malt flavor and a little less hops would make this really nice.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
May 22, 2015. 12 oz. bottle. How does a brewer pack so much body, flavor & hop-flora -- fully reminiscent of heavyweight IPAs -- into a 4.5 ABV brew? This "session IPA" is a masterpiece.

Keg @ Bundobust, Leeds. Pale amber with not much of a head. Tropical fruit hopped in both aroma and taste with a slight sour bitterness to it.
