Bottle from brewery. Colour is tawney amber/orange, small white head. Nose is delightful soft tropical fruit mango and pineapple and some sticky sweet malt barley sugar. Taste is a little more subtle with the malty sweet barley sugar, pine, grapefruit citrous hop, minerally but not so much of the tropical fruity. Quite sticky sweet caramel/barley sugar malt.

teorn88 (2707) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2012
33cl bottle from the brewery. It pours a clear deep orange colour with a medium off white head. Aroma is intensely hoppy with teopical fruits really shining. Extremely fruity with pineapple and mango. Outstanding. Taste is similarly fruity and intense, but more balanced with a nice sweety malty backbone. Palate is medium to full with good carbonation. Overall, a very teasty IPA.

Sample @ Borefts 2012. The pour’s a light hazy gold with a small white head. The nose is lemon, post-workout armpit, some funky cheese. Yeast. The taste is lemon & lime, herbs (sage? some rosemary). Herbal, chalky hop finish. Dry. Overall, pretty excellent, and a welcomed change of pace this festival.
