Bottle from cotteridge wines. this has a lovely hop aroma on pouring. Very resinous. Pours a dark amber with small white head. Taste is initially light but with a big hop bitterness coming in right after. Hints of spice then are overtaken by a real grapefruity peachy mouth. I enjoyed this the more i drank it. the taste remained in my mouth for a good while after. reminded me of Arbors Yakima valley from a few years back. pretty good id say.

Poured a hazy light amber with an off white ring. Aroma of moderately sweet citrus and soft malt. Medium body, flavour is medium sweet, medium bitter. Overly bitter and unbalanced.

Bottle. Big white head, thick lace. Misty gold. Aroma has lots of fruits. Hops, citruses, malts in excellent balance. Crispy and smooth. Complex jet very drinkable. Just perfect.

Golden copper beer with a grassy aroma. Then oranges, lemons and strawberry with a bready backbone for the taste. Finishing with bitter marmalade.

Golden color with nose full of tropical fruit. Same is taste, all well balanced, very enjoyable IPA. Long bitter dry finish without going over the edge. Not bad at all....

PabloZab (273) - Wroclaw, POLAND - MAR 18, 2015
Zlota barwa, piana biala, w miare trwala, ladnie krazkuje. Aromat chmielowy, owoce tropikalne, przyjemny. W smaku cierpko chmielowa goryczka z delikatna slodycza na koncu. To juz kolejne amerykanskie piwo z charakterystycznym chmielowym, tropikalnym posmakiem. Zdecydowanie mi sie to podoba!
