3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at Stone Liberty Station, 18/04/14.
Clear golden with a moderate off white head that retains well.
Nose is subtle hops, citric sherbets, bitter orange, grass, a little thin for the ABV perhaps but pleasant enough.
Taste comprises punchy hops, bitter orange, grapefruit, straw, pine.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close laced with hop bitterness.
Decent enough IPA but maybe lacks a little depth for the ABV.
