Intitially very hoppy and piney on the nose. Definitely lychee on front of tongue but a bit of sting on the back. Doesn't quite back up the aroma. Bit of bitterness in the finish.

330ml bottle into pint glass. Juicy fruit/pine/caramel nose. Hazy golden beer with solid white head. Carbonation is steady and fine. Flat and bitter in the mouth. Finish is bitter, tannin with a subtle malt background. Nice and cleansing.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a bronze/golden colour with a decent haze and mild-moderate carbonation.
Aroma. Can smell sweet citrus and not much else
Taste. strong pine taste backed by a slight herbiness.
Overall. whilst this beer isn’t particularly enjoyable or special, it doesn’t let you down and is quite appropriate for its style.

on tap at the grain store in newcastle. slightly hazed pale golde, plenty of lacing; steady pine and citrus aroma, hints of lozenges and menthol; loads of bitterness, tending towards the rusty tea end of the spectrum; very sessionable indeed

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle) Very slightly hazy amber with decent loose off-white head. Aroma is predominantly pine, with citrus hints. Light body with plenty of, rather fizzy, carbonation. Decent hop driven flavour, with citrus notes at the start quickly developing into some pleasant bitterness that lasts a long time on the palate. The malt is buried quite some way below the hop taste, but seems biscuity with caramel hints. Pleasant IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasting at Plonk. Fruity and citrus hop aroma with a hint of something funky - feet? Aroma is moderate for an IPA. Flavour is similar, only moderate intensity for an IPA. Decent for a low alcohol session beer but like most low alcohol IPA beers it definitely doesn’t match up to the full ABV IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (330ml). A large fluffy cream-white head crowns a hazy dark amber beer. Hoppy aromas of pine and citrus (oranges mainly) over a biscuity caramel malt bill. Taste is similar with a moderately sweet malty base balanced by a decent fruity/piney hop bitterness. Light-medium body and perfect carbonation for a session IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 330ml bottle on 27/12/2014. Pours a slightly cloudy light amber with a big foamy head. Has a light aroma featuring fruit, pine a herbs. Take a sip and you find a decent caramel malt backbone, with some citrus fruit, and lots of spicy, almost salty, hops. It really is quite hop forward, with the bitterness dry and lingering. Medium bodied and slightly over carbed. A little flawed and a touch rough, but still damned tasty for 4.7%. Would be a great BBQ beer.
