Can from Zipp’s Liquor. Pours orange with an inch of white foam. Big fruity aromas on the nose. The taste is more malty which is a 180 from the expectation created by the aroma. I quite kike that curve ball. The finish restores the fruitiness. Nice! Finally a bitter that kicks ass.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16oz can. Unfiltered glowing orange-copper color. Foamy, glass lacing head. Really has the peach, orange, apricot aroma as advertised. Clean, simple, mild, but has a lot of character. Significantly better and truer to style than most US variations. Capture an English feel, without being fishy or ringwood dominated. A great beer, would love to see this in six-packs.
