Pacific Northwest meets Pacific Southeast as the best of American and New Zealand hops meld together with just enough malt backbone to allow them to sing. A riot of mango and passion-fruit on the nose but balanced enough to drink by the bucketful. Dive in and grab another bottle but don’t get the bends.

Ingredients:
Grains: Pale, Vienna, Munich, Cara-Pils
Hops: Citra, Pacific Gem

MrBlueSky93 (362) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle from Cellar Door, Four Oaks. Wow. Pours golden-orange in colour, no real head on things. Aroma...a fruit bowl! light malts, caramel and biscuit, then the fruitiness. On the taste the malts come through first, caramel then some light pine then the fruity blast! Exotic, tropical fruits, Pineapple, Mango, Peach, Lychee, Grapefruit, Lemon, Orange...like chewing on a a Fruit Salad Sweet! Then light biscuity yet medium bitter finish. Damn fantastic!

thebeertourist (5046) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle from Sourced Market St Pancras. Pours cloudy, orangey golden with a dense offwhite head. Exotix fruit aroma, especially mango. A bit tart fruitiness in the mouth, but well-balanced hop bitterness, mango, passion fruit and orange zest. Refreshing.

davidtjm (819) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2015
Bottle from BottleDog. Pour is gold with a thin head, aroma is fruity, bitter. Taste is bitter, pine, light citrus. In the shop a few days ago I saw that it was bottled in January 2014, I thought "great, a fresh London IPA, I’ll buy that!" Now I?ve rembered that it?s 2015 and that it?s 13 months old and as such the hops have taken a hit

On tap at Dorking beer fest. Pours a slightly hazy amber. Aroma is odd. Fruit mixed with wet straw/cardboard. But the taste is really nice. Fruity... mango and citrussy grapefruit and lemon. Bitter and dry hoppy finish.
