12oz bottle. Aroma is hoppy. Appearance is a deep bronze with some good, light lacing. Taste is hoppy with little bitterness. A very refreshing hopped beer. Palate is pretty ok. Overall, a good beer that i could drink all the time... Unless i wanted something darker.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep amber with one finger of head when poured from a 12 oz bottle. Smells of sweet malt, feels heavy on the tongue like a full bodied beer, but flavor is nearly all hops, good ones, with not too much citrus or other flavors dominating. If it didn't say 4.4% abv on the bottle I would have thought I was drinking a 6-7% IPA. Good if you want big beer flavor but want to see straight.

On tap at Griffin’s Publick House. A very smooth and clean drinking beer that focuses more on malt than hops, although it never gets too sweet. Well made.

On tap at PSBH, Manchester. Deep red shade with a finger’s worth of creamy head. Bright strawberry jam in the aroma. Loads of fruit in the taste, again packing in more jam and adding a hint of blackcurrant. Nice hop linger. Mouthfeel and carbonation on the softer side. Good stuff.

Fruity yet hoppy aftertaste - a refreshing smooth joyous beer that gives you a lift (hence the name?!).

Amber/caramel in colour. Aroma’s of toffee and caramel. High sweetness and a dry hop bitterness in taste.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is heavy citrus, pineapple, tropical, hint of vanilla aroma hopping. Appearance is crystal clear ruby red with medium off white head. Taste is aroma hopping and hop bitterness forward. Malt really takes a back seat. Palate is light and a little watery. Hop bitterness dominates and aroma hopping quite present. Little to no malt. Overall this is a very small amber with huge IPA hopping. While it is clean, the malt cant handle the hop bitterness. Drinkable but doesn’t really work for me.

This is by far one of the best beers I’ve ever had. I can drink it down with ease. Love the finish - nice hoppy bitterness followed by a clean crisp, barely any aftertaste.

Appearance: Slightly hazy copper body, creamy light tan head.
Aroma: Toasted malts, floral hops, with hints of grapefruit.
Taste: Watery, hints of grapefruit with some roasted presence.
Palate: Watery with light carbonation.
Overall: I did not like this, it was pretty awful. Would try again, but this time it was horrendous.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear caramel with a thin white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of piny hops, a bit dank even. Taste is lightly sweet and heavily bitter. Balance is not really good. Flavors of caramel and resin. Medium carb, light bodied and almost watery. A good "low boost" option but not a great one.
